Aunt Viv is not here for the Fresh Prince‘s wife.
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:
“I was looking at this ridiculousness people called a historic moment and I was annoyed. I was annoyed because it dilutes the movement when you only stand up for yourself.
I’m a real freedom fighter, I’m not a pretend freedom fighter. I stand up for other actresses, other people. The Smiths just irked me because they are such pretenders, and everything is a photo op. It’s just self-contrived because her hubby didn’t get a nomination.”
Again, we should point out that she has a bad history with Will so all must be taken with a grain of salt — but do you think Janet has a slight point?
Even though it’s unbelievably terrible that the Oscars’ acting categories are made up entirely of white actors, is it possible part of Jada’s outrage is over Will’s snub for Concussion?
