Actress Janet Hubert…aka ‘Black Aunt Viv’ from The Fresh Prince of Bel Air took to Facebook to BLAST Jada Pinkett and Will Smith over Jada’s call to boycott the Oscars.
It’s no secret that Janet and The Smiths have had bad blood for years, but baby Janet decided to make her thoughts on THIS particular matter known.
She starts off:
“First of all, Miss Thing. Does your man not have a mouth of his own with which to speak? And, the second thing is — girlfriend, there are a lot of shit going in the world that you all don’t seem to recognize. People are dying, our boys are being shot left and right, people are hungry, people are starving, people are trying to pay bills — and you’re talking about some muh-fuckin’ actors uh…and…Oscars.
And … it just ain’t that deep.
And here’s the other thing. For you to ask other actors and other ‘blacktresses’ and black actors to jeopardize their career and their standing in a town you know damn well you don’t do that. And, here’s the other thing — they don’t care. They don’t care!
I find it ironic that somebody who has made their living and has made millions and millions of dollars from the very people that you’re talking about boycotting just because you didn’t get a nomination, just because you didn’t win? That’s not the way life works, baby. Okay? And it’s very suspect to me.”
And that’s just the FIRST part of the video. Watch below.
To the Smiths!
