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.”

The cast, which includes Margot Robbie, Will Smith, Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman, Karen Fukuhara and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, hold up their weapons as they get ready for battle.

David simply captioned the image, “#skwad.”

“We all need good guys and everything — yay, good guys — but at the end of the day, they’re kinda boring. They’re always going to do the right thing.

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.
