Fresh Prince co-star Janet Hubert puts Will and Jada Pinkett Smith on blast over ‘White Oscars’ boycott

Actress Jada Pinkett-Smith recently took to Twitter to voice her displeasure in the apparent lack of diversity among 2016 Academy Award nominees. She finished with a call to other minorities to join her in boycotting the Oscars. But not everyone agreed with her.

Will Smith’s former co-star Janet Hubert (the first Aunt Viv from “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”) had some choice words for Jada and her former 'nephew'. Looks like there's still bad blood here. Janet was fired by Will Smith from Fresh Prince. She later alleged that Will turned on her because she wouldn't kiss up to him and also because he wouldn't stand up for a raise for the cast.


About the Oscar boycott, Janet began with a dig at Pinkett-Smith:
“First of all, miss thing,does your man not have a mouth of his own with which to speak?
“The second thing, girlfriend, there’s a lot of sh*t going on in the world that you all don’t seem to recognise. People are dying. Our boys are being shot left and right. People are starving. People are trying to pay bills. And you’re talking about some motherf**king actors and Oscars. It just ain’t that deep.”
"And here's the other thing, for you to ask other actors, and other black actresses and actors, too, to jeopardize their career and their standing in a town that you know damn well you don't do that. And here's the other thing—they don't care. They don't care! And I find it ironic that somebody who has made their living, made their living and made millions and millions of dollars from the very people you're talking about boycotting just because you didn't get a nomination, just because you didn't win. 
"Well karma must be a bitch, cause now here you are. Here you are, you've had a few flops and you know there are those out there who really deserved a nod," 
I didn’t think, frankly, you deserved a Golden Globes nomination with that accent, but you got one. And just because the world doesn’t go the way you want it to go, doesn’t mean you can go out and start asking people to stand up and singWe Shall Overcome for you."You ain't Barack and Michelle Obama. And y'all need to get over yourselves". 
"You have a huge production company that you only produce your friends and family and yourself. So you are a part of Hollywood, you are part of the system that is unfair to other actors. So get real."

There were great black actors this year, that deserved nomination atleast, concussion was dope will smith challenged himself, Michael b jordan challenged himself to come up with the great boxing act in creed, idris elba played the perfect nigerian commandant in beasts of no nation, what about straight outta Compton? You say it's not nomination worthy too? It's supposed to win the best movie category if you ask me. Put your hate for will smith aside and talk sense, the lady is just spewing immense trash like a clueless attention seeker

I don't know why black people have to raise the RACE card all the time. Definitely, racism is still alive and well, but it should not serve as an umbrella for we, black people to hide from reality. I don't think Oscar nominees should be selected on the basis of race. In some years some Black films will make it up there and in some years, some Asian or White films will be at the top. After the president of the Academy is Black and Female...Is that racism too? Cut it out Jada Pinkett!!!

Why is she talking like a retard?????
Several actors are talking abt the fact that this is d 2nd time in a row this is happening
David Oyelowo was CLEARLY SNOBBED last yr pple kept quite but they are like not again...
This yr.. Concussion and Idris Alba, Compton etc...

So why in the world is she attacking Jada PS ONLY???? (This is y black pple in US don't go far put pple on blast with sense).
She is CLEARLY BITTERRRR. pls hv several sits. She's clearly jealous of what Jada and Will have.

If a man is accused of cheating and d wife speaks up, I can say she shud hv several seats but pls if he is doing his handiwork and as d wife, u feel he was cheated, won't u stand up for him if u can, no b una livelihood???

If u wanna know what Will smith is going for his neighbourhood; go to his website

Finally, who all of una help :):):)

Ms Hubert does sound so veri personal & bitter on her attack of d Smith's witout truly / objectivly addressin d real issue raised by Jada P Smith;wch is d Osacr nomination.
I am not one 2 play d race card bt truth is re dir truly no gud films/ actors/ producers/directors of black origin 2merit d Oscars??
D Oscars mst be seen 2 be diverse, obj , all encompassin & a level playim field, anythn short of dis wil mke it discriminatory.
