Janet Hubert played Aunt Vivian on the now classic '90s sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Hubert starred on the show for three seasons until she was unceremoniously let go and replaced by Daphne Maxwell Reid.

Hubert has made it known that she has her issues with Will Smith, and last night she called out Jada Pinkett Smith, Will Smith's wife, for suggesting black actors boycott the Academy Awards for their lack of diversity in this year's nominations.


Janet opens up old wounds in the video too. She discusses how Will Smith allegedly shut her down when she approached him to help her and other actors on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air rally for a raise since he was the star of the show and had some level of influence.

Per Janet, Will's response to her was: "My deal is my deal and y'all deal y'all's deal."

Finally, Janet ends her video by slamming the Smiths for trying to boycott an industry that they both benefit from.
