As the world waits to see if or how Will Smith’s public image will be affected by Entanglement-gate, Facebook is reaping the rewards from Jada Pinkett’s decision to come clean about it.
After a number of his relatives gave stories to the press about the relationship last year, August stunned the world by revealing that he had indeed entered into a romantic setup with the married actress Jada Pinkett-Smith and claimed that her husband- Will Smith– approved of it.
Yesterday, Jada and Will made their way to her ‘Red Table Talk’ platform to share their side of the story, and reveal that they were separated at the time.
Today, as social media weighs in on whether or not it buys what the couple is selling on a PR tip, Facebook has revealed that their conversation has set a new record on the platform.
Within 24 hours after it was posted Friday at noon PT, the 12-minute segment, titled “Jada Brings Herself to the Table,” had been viewed more than 15.4 million times.
That handily topped the previous one-day record holder for views: a “Red Table Talk” episode from March 2019 with Jordyn Woods discussing rumors she had sex with NBA star Tristan Thompson, the father of Khloe Kardashian’s daughter.
That episode pulled in 7.6 million viewers in its first day.
Unfortunately, despite being at the heart of the story, August and his discography are unlikely to benefit from the ratings (and income) Jada’s ‘Red Table’ tell-all is to generate.
