Oscar season is stirring up a large amount of emotions, which has now led former Fresh Of Prince star actress Janet Hubert to call out her one time co-star, Will Smith. As focus has been put on the lack of color in this year’s nominations, Jada Pinkett Smith went on to share she would boycott the ceremony. To respond to Jada, Hubert set up her camera and recorded a response to the Smith’s, stating “People are dying…. and you are talking about some motherf*cking Oscars… it just ain’t that deep”, Watch.
Hubert was on the Fresh Prince from 1990 to 1993. Both Will and Hubert have always seemed to be at odds since the departure of her show. In a interview from years ago, Will has went on to share his former Aunt Viv had problems with his quick success, quoted by HuffPost.
“She has basically gone from a quarter of a million dollars a year to nothing,” he told an Atlanta radio station around the time of Hubert’s departure from the show. “She’s mad now but she’s been mad all along. She said once, ‘I’ve been in the business for 10 years and this snotty-nosed punk comes along and gets a show.’ No matter what, to her I’m just the Antichrist.”
