While everyone prefers to reminiscence on Martin Luther King Jr’s accomplishments and heroics on his day, some rather spend their time throwing shade at others. Today’s shady moments comes from actress, Janet Hubert, as she directed some shots over to Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith late Monday afternoon regarding their decision to boycott this year’s Oscars.
Earlier in the day, Jada Pinkett was asking black Hollywood actors and actresses to boycott the Oscars this year because for the second consecutive year, the Academy’s failed to include any black nominees. Jada’s husband, Will Smith, was applauded for his role in Concussion, but was snubbed and received zero nominations this year. Janet, notoriously known as “Aunt Viv” on Will Smith’s The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air in the early 90’s, chimed in and spoke candidly on why Jada and Will Smith’s intentions to boycott the Oscars was merely a ploy to get people to side with them for being snubbed.
