Will Smith is known for a lot of things in the entertainment world, but fighting with other celebrities isn’t his thing. With that said, many of his former co-workers don’t care, including Janet Hubert from the Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air.
The actress recently attacked Jada Pinkett and Will for boycotting the 2016 Oscars. On Facebook, Hubert wrote, “does your man not have a mouth of his with which to speak?”
Jane insinuated that her son killed himself because of Will. In an interview with 1Extra, a part of the BBC network, Will said, “I loved what she brought to the Fresh Prince.”
The actor said, “as an artist, there are so many things that she does.” However, Will didn’t really address what she had to say. As for the time when he and his wife boycotted the Oscars, Will said it was for a political and social purpose.
Will said that, for him, it’s not about him and his wife, it’s about the broader American landscape, and Hollywood is supposed to reflect the inclusive nature of the United States.
It isn’t supposed to represent the “regressive side.” Smith claimed that Hollywood is supposed to be diverse, not narrow. According to the, I Am Legend alum, he feared it was a “social and political slide that’s been happening throughout the country.”
As you may know, his co-stars on the Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air have attacked him publicly many times before. Janet Hubert said, previously, that Jada Pinkett ought to be ashamed for telling other African-American entertainers to avoid going to the Oscars.
And this isn’t the first time Will has acted with politics in mind. He famously complained about the way the Grammy Awards didn’t air the hip-hop portion of the Award’s ceremony to the general public. Will insinuated that it was, clearly, an act of racism and discrimination.
