When’s the last time you’ve seen or heard from actress Janet Hubert who’s best known for the role of “Aunt Viv” on the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air from 1990-1993.
Janet and show star Will Smith infamously had a falling out. She says she was let go because she wouldn’t “…kiss Will’s ass”. While he attributes her termination to her “bad attitude”. Despite the feud happening over 20 years ago, Janet just let the world know that she’s still salty!
Jada Pinkett Smith recently posted a video expressing her disappointment in no actors of color being nominated for Oscars. The “Gotham” star encouraged her fellow thespians to boycott this year’s Academy Awards and to take their resources and pour it back into the black community.
Well Janet is calling BS on Jada’s motivational speech! She took to Facebook and attempted to shade Jada for trying to turn her back on the institution that made her husband a superstar.
“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.”
Janet went on to say:
“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.”
Beauties, does Janet have a point or is she just being a hater? We do love the fact that the 60-year-old isn’t afraid to speak her mind. Since Raven-Symone has over extended her welcome on “The View”, we vote for Janet Hubert to take her place!
We would also love if Janet returned to the “Real Housewives Of Atlanta” where she literally gave Kenya a run for her money last season. Whatever happens next, good job Janet Hubert for causing a stir and getting your name back in the media.
