‘I Respect Jada Highly’— Janet Hubert
Janet Hubert, the original Aunt Vivian on “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” had nothing but nice things to say about Jada Pinkett-Smith during a recent talk show appearance.
“I respect Jada highly,” Hubert said on an upcoming episode of “The Real.” “I respect her skill, I respect her as an artist, I respect her as an actress, very much.”
But it’s Hollywood that Hubert says she has an issue with
“There’s been a diversity issue, years and years and years ago,” she said. “This didn’t just start this year. This started way back when the Oscars first came up.”
“It wasn’t created for us, by us,” she added. “We can do our own thing, definitely.”
During her first rant against the Oscar boycott and Pinkett Smith, Hubert put everyone on blast and made reference to Will Smith not having her back when she was fired from the show.
“Karma’s a b**ch,” she said at the time. “You ain’t Barack and Michelle Obama, and y’all need to get over yourselves.”
