Jada Pinkett Smith Reacts To 'Red Table Talk' Parody Challenge On 'Drag Race'

Jada Pinkett Smith gives the queens of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 6 a shoutout for their sendup to Red Table Talk.

During the most recent episode of Drag Race All Stars, the queens gave a nod to Red Table Talk by participating in the weekly challenge, Pink Table Talk. The queens were broken up into groups of three to present a heartfelt topic in the same format Pinkett, her daughter Willow Smith, and her mother Adrienne Banfield-Norris, use when discussing their lives.

The winning group included Trinity K. Bonet, A’Keria C. Davenport and Eureka O’Hara. But in a shocking twist, the overall winner of the night was Ginger Minj. While fans have been debating whether Minj’s win was valid or producer shenanigans, Pinkett-Smith took to her Instagram to give a lovely message to the contestants.

“@willowsmith, @gammynorris and I LOVE @rupaulsdragrace! We have been fans since day 1!” she wrote as the caption to a clip from the show featuring Bonet, Davenport, and O’Hara. “Ladieeees …ya’ll kill’t the Pink Table Talk challenge this week! Congrats to @eurekaohara, @trinitykbonet and @mizakeriachanel for winning the Pink Table Talk challenge [!] And congrats to @gingerming who was the top All Star this week[.] Any contestant that has ever stepped foot on the RuPaul’s Drag Race stage is a winner in my eyes[.]”

Bonet, Davenport, and Minj responded to Pinkett-Smith’s shoutout with messages of their own.

Minj responded with heart-eyed smiley face emojis while Bonet wrote, “Oooommgggggggg how kool is this!!!!!! Thank youuuu sooo much miss jada! Means the world. And I haven’t missed a table talk! Keep it up!!!!!!”

“One what an honor it is to hear this from you!” wrote Davenport. “Thank you so much so showing us it’s ok to be open and authentic on a public platform. [K]eep up the amazing work.”
