Janet Hubert is serving even more criticism to black Hollywood. As previously reported, the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air actress has publicly criticized Jada Pinkett-Smith and her husband Will Smith for boycotting the Oscars. [Click here for the backstory.]

In her latest Facebook video, she had some not so nice things to say about BRAVO reality TV star, NeNe Leakes.

She states:

Did you know NeNe Leakes made it on Broadway before Janet Hubert? Something’s wrong with the whole system of bad behavior being rewarded. I think in the black community, ratchet has became the new black, ghetto has become the new black.

Janet also continued to criticize Jada and Will telling the LA Times,

I’m a real freedom fighter. I’m not a pretend freedom fighter. I stand up for other actresses, other people. The Smiths just irked me because they are such pretenders, and everything is a photo op. It’s just self-contrived because her hubby didn’t get a nomination.

When asked if she thinks there’s a diversity issue in Hollywood, she says:

We’re all complaining about diversity in Hollywood, but we’ve got to address the colorism within the black community of Hollywood first. I’m called “dark-skinned Aunt Viv.” [Reid] is called “light-skinned Aunt Viv.” The whole ridiculousness of black Hollywood — there is no black Hollywood. It’s every man for himself. We’ve got to address that first before we can start attacking someone else’s awards that were never designed for us. The Oscars were never designed for us. There are actors who have never gotten an Oscar and have done amazing work. If you are waiting for an award of a little … gold statue and that’s supposed to validate you, then you’re not in this business for the right reasons. We do the work. It’s about the work. It’s about taking the pages of a script and bringing them to life. It ain’t that deep. We get paid a lot of money to do very little work.
