Jada Pinkett Smith's mom Adrienne Banfield-Norris slammed white privilege during the latest episode of Red Table Talk.
The show host had a heated chat with Olivia Jade Giannulli on Tuesday, December 8.
The 21-year-old Instagram influencer spoke out for the first time on the show since the arrest of her parents.
Olivia's parents Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli were arrested for their involvement in a 2019 high-profile college admission scandal.
Adrienne, 67, shared that she found it ironic that Olivia chose her, Jada, and Willow Smith to reach out to for her "redemption story". She expressed that black women don't get the same support from white women.
"Her being here is the epitome of white privilege to me," said Adrienne, who is also known as Gammy.
Gammy then asked Olivia if she had a "clear understanding" of what white privilege is. The stunner told Gammy she did and added that she took her life "for granted".
Twitter users have shared mixed reactions to Gammy's views on white privilege. Check out some of their comments below:
"I get Adrienne is pissed about white girl privelege and the devastating inequity of Healthcare and murder by cops in black communities but there's some privilege going on in the Smith household too! Those botoxed faces don't come cheap! And Jada's affair? Glass houses."
"Jada was stupid for having her on there. Olivia has her own platform, she could have navigated her apology and announcement herself. Why did she need their help?"
"Who is she to talk? Like her black grandkids aren't more privileged than most people in general. Please!"
"This is a kid that got caught up in something her parents did. No one should be attacking her for how much money her parents make, their lifestyle, or what they did. I’m pretty sure the Smiths are living high off their salaries! This kid isn’t to be blamed for 'white privilege'."
"Good for her. She seems to be the only one that is willing to call Olivia out in an honest way. That gal had been raised in a family that never gave a thought to what is right or moral or responsible. Some one needed to ask her to face the truth."
"Adrienne was right to school her because she’s experienced! And she was right!"
