Filed under: AwardzJada Pinkett SmithOscarsControversy

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!

Carlton Alfonso Ribero Says Fresh Prince's Aunt Viv Was Crazy!

Filed under: TV NewsCelebrity FeudsWill Smith

As we all by now, Janet Hubert, the actress who played Aunt Viv on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air hated Will Smith and blames him for getting her fired from the show.

Wellllll, it looks like there was more to it than just that.

In a stand-up routine that Carlton Alfonso Ribero did a couple years ago, he shared some insight into why she was taken off the show, even calling her "crazy!"

Ribero suggests that she was a bad seed on the show and made it difficult to get along with her. He even recalls her fighting and yelling at other cast members, so naturally, he totally takes Will's side and agrees that she should have been taken off the show.

Hear what else he has to say about her and the cast at around the 2:28 mark (above).
