Regina King was scheduled to appear on the MET Gala Red Carpet last night in New York City, however, fans noticed that she was absent from it.
Fans were looking for King to make her entrance at the star-studded event, but quickly understood why she did not. See what some of them had to say below.
Regina King was supposed to be a co-chair at the Met Gala tonight. Wishing her all the best as she continues to find a way to cope and heal. ❤️

I never pay attention to fashion, but I had to tune in this year to the Met Gala to at least lay eyes on my sis, Regina King (if she attends). Still praying for her peace. 🙏🏾

If Regina King doesn’t show up to the met gala that’s absolutely okay & everyone needs to give her the grace that’s she’s absolutely entitled to! & continued to pray for her as she experienced a great loss that she will NEVER get over #reginaking #MetGala

LISTEN, if QUEEN Regina King shows up, we are happy for her, if she doesn't show up, we are STILL grieving with her. Her birth is our birth. Her death is our death. #MetGala

In January, we reported that King’s son, Ian Alexander Jr. had passed away at the age of 26th just a few days after his birthday.
There is no record that Regina King was in attendance inside of the gala as well but we will continue to keep her in our thoughts and prayers.
