Jada Pinkett Smith Responds to Academy's Diversity Statement

Jada Pinkett Smith is responding to the Academy after president Cheryl Boone Isaacs released a lengthy statement on the lack of diversity in the Oscar nominations this year.

The 44-year-old actress previously announced that she will be boycotting the Oscars after no actors of color were nominated this year.

Cheryl then released a statement saying that Academy will be reviewing its membership in the coming days and weeks to bring about diversity as soon as possible.

“I would like to express my gratitude to the Academy, specifically Cheryl Boone Isaacs, for such a quick response in regard to the issue at hand. I look forward to the future,” Jada tweeted on Tuesday afternoon (January 19).

Will Smith's 'Fresh Prince' Co-Star Janet Hubert Slams Jada Pinkett-Smith's Oscars Boycott (Video)

Janet Hubert, who played Will Smith‘s Aunt Vivian on Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, is slamming Jada Pinkett-Smith for her 2016 Oscars boycott.

The 60-year-old actress uploaded a video to YouTube where she shared her sentiments. Warning: this video contains NSFW language.

“I’ve been trying to figure out: Do I really want to do this? Yeah, I do. Today, being the celebration of Martin Luther King’s birthday and hitting 60 years old…I want to say something to Jada Pinkett Smith asking other black actors to boycott the Oscars. First of all, Miss Thing: Does your man not have a mouth of his own with which to speak?” Janet said.

“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 hungry. People are starving. People are trying to pay bills,” the actress continued. “And you’re talking about some motherf—ing actors and Oscars. It just ain’t that deep,” she continued.

“Here’s the other thing, for you to ask other actors to jeopardize their careers…You know damn well, you don’t do that,” Janet added in her rant. “They don’t care! I find it ironic that somebody who has made their living and made millions and millions of dollars from the very people [who are doing this]…That is not the way life works, baby. It’s very suspect to me.”

Jada Pinkett-Smith Is Boycotting the Oscars 2016 - Watch Her Announcement

Jada Pinkett-Smith has officially declared she will not be attending, nor watching, the 2016 Oscars due to the #OscarsSoWhite movement.

The 44-year-old actress announced the news in a video, posted to her Facebook page on Martin Luther King day.

“Is it time that people of color recognize how much power, influence, that we have amassed, that we no longer need to ask to be invited anywhere?” Jada said in the video. “Maybe it’s time that we recognize that if we love and respect and acknowledge ourselves in the way in which we are asking others to do, that that is the place of true power.”

Spike Lee also just announced that he will not be in attendance at the event.

Jada Pinket Smith Debates Oscars Boycott for Lack of Diversity

Jada Pinkett Smith is speaking her mind when it comes to the lack of diversity at this year’s Academy Awards.

The 44-year-old actress took to social media to vent her frustrations after all white actors were nominated in the acting categories.

“At the Oscars…people of color are always welcomed to give out awards…even entertain, (pt. 1),” Jada tweeted. “But we are rarely recognized for our artistic accomplishments. Should people of color refrain from participating all together? (pt 2)”

She continued, “People can only treat us in the way in which we allow. With much respect in the midst of deep disappointment. J (pt 3)”

Will Smith Opens Up About Son Trey's Love for Football

Will Smith looks handsome in gray while attending Variety’s Creative Impact Awards and 10 Directors to Watch Brunch held during the 2016 Palm Springs International Film Festival on Sunday (January 3) in Palm Springs, Calif.

The 47-year-old Concussion actor was joined by his wife Jada Pinkett, as well as Jack Black.

Will recently opened up about his son Trey‘s football career and how he may have approached it different had he known the risks he learned through his latest film.

“It would be a very, very difficult situation. It’s hard when somebody loves something the way that my son loved playing football,” Will told Yahoo. “I would have to make sure that he had the information and we would have to sit down as a family and make a decision. I don’t think I’m the type of parent that would pull him and say, ‘Absolutely not, over my dead body.’ I don’t think I’d do that, but I would hope that I could convince him to spend his time elsewhere.”

FYI: Jada is wearing Dior. Will is wearing Tom Ford.
