Aunt Viv is not here for the Fresh Prince's wife.

As you've surely heard by now, the Oscars caused a rather large controversy last week when it was revealed that practically all of the nominees were white.

#OscarsSoWhite has been trending ever since, and Jada Pinkett Smith made national headlines after she called for a boycott of the Academy Awards due to a lack of representation.

Will Smith's former onscreen mother Janet Hubert made it clear she disapproved of Jada's video on account of more serious issues of inequality taking place around the world, but she's already back with more shade against the Gotham actress.

In an interview with L.A. Times on Wednesday, Janet called into question Jada's reasoning for taking a stand against the Academy, saying:

He's got her back.

Jada Pinkett Smith has been the talk of the town ever since she announced she was boycotting the Oscars due to their continued lack of diversity, aka #OscarsSoWhite Year Two.

And while the actress has seen support from celebs like Spike Lee and Al Sharpton, as well as some not-so-positive feedback from Whoopi Goldberg and Stacey Dash, it surprisingly took a few days for Will Smith to share his stance on the matter.

See what she has to say!

Keeping it classy!

On Monday, Janet Hubert — AKA the original Aunt Viv from Fresh Prince of Bel-Air — threw some SERIOUS shade at Jada Pinkett Smith after she publicly announced she would be boycotting this year's Oscars due to lack of diversity.

And on Wednesday, Entertainment Tonight released a clip of Will Smith's wife calmly addressing the 60-year-old's harsh words.

Instead of firing back at the actress, the 44-year-old would prefer to put up a united front, saying:

"Considering that Alabama had its highest recruitment for the KKK for Martin Luther King's birthday, I hope that we as African-Americans can find a way to get along and step together."

In fact, the Gotham alum stressed that her headline-making video was about bigger issues than just awards show snubs, adding:

"This whole Oscar controversy isn't really about the Oscars. Really, in my plea to ask all communities and people of color to take back our power is so that we can use it in all sectors of our community, and right now, specifically with African-American people, we have some very serious issues that I think we as a people have to move together on. I'm hoping we can find ways to step together in this instead of finding ways to fight each other. I got love for everybody."

We think that was an incredibly graceful response, considering the sitcom star was taking some pretty personal shots! What do U think of Jada's remarks? Let us know in the comments!
