Aunt Viv throwing some shade!
Since the announcement of the Academy Award nominees last week, several people have spoken out about the EXTREME lack of diversity in the acting categories.
Jada Pinkett Smith and Spike Lee have both publicly said they will be boycotting the Oscars because of the blaring lack of diversity.

Well Janet Hubert, who played the original Aunt Viv from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air but was not liked by the cast and ultimately fired and replaced, felt she needed to share her thoughts on the issue by calling Jada out!
Janet, who has been known to get into it with Will Smith in the past, took to YouTube to share a video where she rants about how it's ridiculous for Pinkett Smith to ask people to boycott the Oscars saying:
"The second thing, girlfriend, there's a lot of s— going on in the world that you all don't seem to recognize. People are dying. Our boys are being shot left and right. People are starving. People are trying to pay bills. And you're talking about some motherf—ing actors and Oscars. It just ain't that deep."
Ch-ch-check out the rest of Hubert's response (below) as she shades Will's wife pretty hard!
