It’s no secret, Janet Hubert (who once played Aunt Viv on the Fresh Prince of Bel Air) is no fan of Will Smith. So it comes as no surprise, that she has an opinion of Will and his wife Jada Pinkett-Smith boycotting this year’s Oscar’s. On Monday, she released a YouTube video criticizing the couple. Referring to Jada as ‘Miss Thing’, Janet states:
Does your man not have a mouth of his own with which to speak? 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.
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.
Janet also claims that while they all worked together on Fresh Prince, she approached Will about the cast coming together to ask for a group raise. She states that she was snubbed by Will for the suggestion.
