Jada Pinkett-Smith and Janet Hubert

Janet Hubert, aka the original mom on Fresh Prince of Bel Air, put Jada Pinkett-Smith on blast for joining Spike Lee in calling for a boycott of the Oscars Awards.

It seems Mrs. Smith's agenda is a self-serving one. She is reportedly upset that her husband Will Smith was not nominated for an Oscar for his role in the flop movie Concussion.

Hubert took to Facebook.com to drag Jada unmercifully.

"Girl please, why are you always speaking for your man?" Hubert said in a video posted on Facebook. "It was the best performance of his career, which says this is the best performance HE has ever done, not necessarily academy worthy."

Apparently Hubert is still bitter over her premature departure from the popular '90s sitcom after she demanded more money and was shown the door instead.

"Now you want other actors to support your cause and be blacklisted in Hollywood as I was because of your lying ass husband," Hubert said.

On Tuesday, talk show Diva Wendy Williams made a similar point by suggesting Jada is calling for a boycott of the Oscars because Will Smith wasn't nominated.

It's pathetic how black people constantly seek validation and recognition from the descendants of slave masters.

We don't see white people protesting over the lack of nominations for whites on black awards shows.

Where is our sense of black pride? We must do better.

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Straight read her ass for filth. *dead*

  • Yardgirl

    Poor Aunt Viv, still holding on to the bitterness. She was done wrong but it is way past time to let it go.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    But but she is right !

  • sealsaa

    "Your lying ass husband". Yep, still bitter after all these years. Pitiful.

  • MookieFly

    They both have a point. You didn't see either Will or Jada get on the soapbox for social injustice or police brutality last year. All we got was Jaden in a baby doll dress

  • BrownSugar

    Black women can't speak their minds without being called "bitter" or "angry". She basically said what others are saying...

  • Too Many Colors

    And that creepy ass white Batman outfit. Twice

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    It seems Mrs. Smith’s agenda is a self-serving one.

    _________
    This ^^

  • sealsaa

    A black woman dragging another black woman and challenging said other black woman's husband's manhood. AND, and, bringing a twenty some odd year old beef into it. Right. She's not bitter at all.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Priorities ....

  • Too Many Colors

    The Smiths alien worshipping asses just figured out that no matter how many white Scientology friends they have, no matter how much money they make, they still black like the rest of us. Womp womp.

    Your ass still Jada from Baltimore. His ass still Will from Philly. This is what the Academy always gonna see. So get over it

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Bitter yes ..... and told no lies in this rant .....

  • Hater

    dead

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    I liked Aunt Viv.

    Now lemme go read :kona:

  • Too Many Colors

    I think we all agree Janet is bitter. I think most of us, still agree however truth was present in that rant

  • kco0l;s ChocolateBox

    So what do you want Will to do Janet? Will you forgive him if he funded another sitcom for you? So you can shut the hell up. How dare you throw Hollywood royalty under the bus for hits on You Tube.

  • SummerBaby

    I've saw several people say "why are we always complaining" you don't hear Latinos & Asians complaining whale maybe they should start. ?

  • sealsaa

    That's all i'm saying. The bitterness is real. Has nothing to do with her being black or a woman.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    This is the perfect post for flies to surface

  • Buttercup

    I was a cackling mess when I watched this last night.

  • SummerBaby

    I'm not sure if I think Janet is bitter ? maybe a little ?. However I'm the type that if you're foul I'm gonna let it be known & I don't care how many years have passed.

  • Monday

    One day aunt Viv will write a book and expose the whole truth. I will buy the book

  • Too Many Colors

    And whose feelings are Spike Lee and the Smiths gonna hurt by not showing up. They still recall the dumb ass movies yall did (Woo, Girl 6, and Wild Wild West) just like we do.

  • Monday

    And a dress off of his collection

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    *speak low* Right! Because thee way my pettY is set up -->you fugg with my money :eek: ION never gotta 'get over it'. :shrug:

    :tea:

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Said everything I had already said .... my focus was moreless on she worried bout the wrong shyt (Jada that is) now she wants to rant ..... when these same folks she rant about she bumps elbows with ..... what kinda fake fawkery is that?

  • Buttercup

    Oh, I think she's still hurt from being cut, but that doesn't make her words any less true.

  • SpillyNillie

    You got beef wit me fo-EVA...

  • Buttercup

    I swear this girl is from my hometown. If that ain't Pooh, it's surely her twin.

  • Buttercup

    Bwahahahaha

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    Right! Go getcho kids! OH :kona:

  • Too Many Colors

    Those alien worshippers are not my Hollywood royalty. Real black Hollywood royalty is old or dead to me

    Hollywood is currently letting them know they are far from royal anything too

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Chile priorities ....

  • NeverSurprised

    I'm with Aunt Viv on this one. The Smiths want blacks to stand with them in their call for a boycott, but can someone (anyone) tell me the last time they spoke out publicly about issues affecting NON-CELEB black Americans, such as the increasing number of black children being caught in the crossfire of the escalating gang/drug wars (three babies killed in Cleveland in September alone, including a 5-month old girl shot as she sat in her carseat). It doesn't have to be THAT issue, but have they taken a stand on ANY issue impacting black Americans

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    rofl lmao !

  • Candance

    Its her husband.... and!!!!! If she doesn't want to go because HER husband wasn't nominated, and others agree and they don't go, who cares? Aunt Viv was mad because she had to pay for her ticket to go lmao!!!!!!! Bye girl!

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    AND SR STEAL got Kesh up here with her $sign husband to the right of the screen :hahaha:

  • Monday

    Soon you will hear again the dark skin aunt Viv vs Light skin aunt Viv

    Her and Uncle Phil did had 2 dark skin kids... Why a light skin aunt Viv?

    Nobody could answer that one on Fresh Prince... At school it really became a debate. Skin color debates always seems to attract the bigger crowd

  • Buttercup

    Like Aunt Viv said, it wasn't an issue until it personally affected you.

  • side_i

    I thought this as soon as I saw Jada's videos, this isn't the first year that the Oscars had no diversity, why all of a sudden you gotta speak up now?? Aunt Viv might be bitter but she's only saying what most of us are thinking.

  • IAmLawlessBrooks

    Even though she made some good points her bitter levels were extremely high and detectable

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    Damn Skippy! AND I got Superman XRAY Vision-like eye-staring capabilities :eek:

    Can look right through yew :D + :yes:

  • Buttercup

    Monday, don't you bring your behind in here talking about skin color. We're not having your trolling, because we now know that Monday is a derogatory word for black people.

  • Too Many Colors

    When was the last time they were at a black awards show? Cause one year he won an NAACP Image Award and wont eem there to accept it!

    Jada tambout no longer beg for the Academy's acceptance. Bitch you the onliest one formally begging!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Sidney Potier is Hollywood black royalty .....

  • Buttercup

    This is what burns my biscuits the most about the situation. People will talk down on NAACP Image Awards, Soul Train Music Awards, BET Awards, the chittlin circuit, etc., but they cry foul when the sprites say you can't sit with us.

  • That’s Interesting

    I agree with Ms. Rose. I am very tired of Black people whining and complaining about the Oscars. It's embarrassing. The first thing I thought was Jada is complaining because her husband isn't nominated. Period. She never cares about Black issues any other time. I mean...look at her kids. Also, the original Aunt Viv needs to move on with her life. Her vendetta is sickening. Will might want to watch out for her. The hate is REAL!

  • AnonymousRose

    "You cant have an OPRESSOR without an OPPRESSED people"~ forgot who said this

  • Too Many Colors

    Yep. Like I said tho. Old.

    Cicely Tyson. Old

    Ruby Dee and Ossie. Dead.

  • SummerBaby

    I don't recall seeing them at one since the time they hosted the BET awards.

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    SO AUnt Viv is an Honorary Rose. SO WATT now *chews gum loud*

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    ^^^^ This !!

  • BKLYNS MAMA

    Aunt Viv ...read they a$$es, right?..if she wasn't BL:ACKBALLED by the smiths before..she dame sho is now!

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    Did you see the video of Jada though? She was talking all serious and with her hands like she was in 'The 'Secret'.

    Will is in the background like "don't put me in that video."

    He might have been holding the camera.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    James Earl Jones ... too

  • Too Many Colors

    When Chris Rock called The Oscars the White BET Awards yesterday? In response to Jada chit.

    ???

  • Too Many Colors

    And that was like the 2nd BET Awards. So YEARS ago.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I couldn't get pass how she fawked her face up with all that damn botox smh

  • Buttercup

    She'll still work. Shoot, at this point, Will and Jada might as well do a movie with her.

  • Browneyes

    Janet is known throughout Hollywood to be difficult to work with

  • smartchickfl

    Off the charts.

  • ShortyDuwop

    My thing is, the Oscars been only nominating yt people. So why wait until your husband isn't nominated to start speaking out on it? Its a real issue, Jada is just using it to their advantage

  • SameoleJ

    They really thought that they are one of them...no amount of Scientology, losing weight and walking around looking like the Bride of Skelator, having your son pose in skirts with them,etc will erase that they are BLACK FOLK at the end of the day. Will and Jada and their offspring....YOU IZ ALL NEGRA!!!!

  • NeverSurprised

    THANK YOU!!! I had forgotten about his behind not showing up, because when he was riding high, an NAACP Award was, I'm sure, "beneath" him. Now that his career is in freefall, suddenly they remember that other black people exist.

  • Buttercup

    LMBO. I heard about it on the radio. I died.

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    AND she's never acted in anything Academy Award worthy :no: Not that I can think of :thinking:

    Will will get an Academy Award in his lifetime, SADDLE DOWN Jada :D

  • Hell_On_Heelz

    I'm disappointed in Jada, if her husband would have been nominated then she would be there front and center. Like others have said, where was their support/boycotting efforts regarding polo lice brutality and us killing each other like animals. Now that's an injustice Mrs. Smith!!!

  • Buttercup

    Welp, I think that about sums it up.

  • SameoleJ

    When Snoop said FUKEM and Suck a dack or Die trying!! SHEESH!!! LOL

  • Hell_On_Heelz

    And Spike....Chi-Raq was absolutely horrible!!!

  • Browneyes

    Monique spoke on this the year after she won. we are good enough to come back and present but not good enough to be nominated. At some point you have to take a stand. Will's movie and many others were great and should've been considered

  • AnonymousRose

    I still don't understand why black still looking for the oppressor to validate them.... maybe one day we will learn...

  • Buttercup

    Really?! Awwww. That breaks my heart. The concept seemed to have a lot of potential.

  • SameoleJ

    Oh her petty was at an all time high and I was there for it. That was 20 years of pent up FUK YOU, Willy from Philly!! LOL

  • jussaying

    I didn't read Jada's reasoning, but there have been calls for many black celebrities to boycott not only for Will Smith. Mostly that there are no black nominees period. And then they decided to have Chris Rock host the show.

  • Renee Bee

    Jada needs to take one of the thousands of seats in the Staples Center and sit her azz down. Worry about yo two damn kids who have gender identity issues. #Weirdos

  • The Mrs.

    Aunt Viv still bitter about getting fired from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. I do agree with her however that there are much more important things going on.

  • NeverSurprised

    You did NOT say the Bride of Skelator! *dead*

  • jussaying

    I don't understand how Sylvester Stallone got a nod for Creed, but the black director and main star (whom I don't even like mind you) were snubbed. Both for the Globes and the Oscars.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I wouldn't be surprised if the oscars paid Jada to get up there and rant ..... The smiths I do not trust ..... these folks sit up and have cawtails with these same people she ranting about ..... js

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    You hang with the Kardashians. You let your kids hang with the Kardashians. Y'all were all in Tom Cruise's relationships. Miss me Mr. & Mrs. Smith. As my husband says "Don't be all Afrika Bambaataa Black Power when it's convenient. Take that fake dashiki off."

  • SpillyNillie

    Thank you! Why not come up with your own award show...I mean, we do have Oprah...she can spearhead the entire thing...

  • Esmeralda

    She's right though. Why do they have a production company but don't hire black talent? Why is Mack Wilds not getting the calls from then instead of Vh1?

  • SameoleJ

    She does!! That or the Bride of White Man from Town, after he was cursed!!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Thank You ......

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Honestly I'm sick of everyone who goes off on these awards shows. The black Hollyweirdos are always barking about YT not giving them enough praise for their work. Yet they are nowhere to be found when they are getting recognition from folks that look like them. These awards were not created with US in mind. Jada and co. need to get off the soapbox and shet up. Appreciate those that appreciate YOU.

  • Yoni

    I didn't listen to her whole rant last night. But I've said it the other week, I hate that blk folks feel they need validation from THEM. They still want the blk man to shuck, jive and entertain, but he still "can't sit with us" type deal.

    As far as her rant.......again, I didn't listen to it. She got to cussin and shit and I turned it off.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    She might be still have a bitter taste in her mouth about Will but she also spewed the bitter truth about them.

  • Too Many Colors

    Chris Rock hosted before tho. This isn't like a goodwill effort on their part to be like: well since we have no blacks nominated, we will let a black host. A consulation prize of sorts.

    And ironically, the last time he hosted a black man DID win. Jaime Foxx for Ray.

  • Buttercup

    Because people are still going to find it to be beneath them. Then they want to say it's the money that's tied to the nod and winning the awards. I get that, but it's time that we invest in ourselves.

  • Yoni

    True....but the YT folks don't share in OUR awards either the Trumpets and Image Makers. I say Jim Crow the shit. #stoneme :karate:

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Cosign ... preach

  • A.P. Millz-CT

    But, her bitterness doesn't make her assessment any less true.

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Django the God
  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Aunt Viv alluded to other issues are so much more important.

  • jussaying

    Ummm... Will Smith and the Smiths in general are very much into social activism for black rights. If you just google will smith black lives matter (for one) you'll note that he has donated to specific individuals who have been victims of racial injustice. He has a production company that is involved in funding documentaries of black stories and so forth.

    I don't follow the Smiths (or any other celeb closely for that matter), but just because we don't necessarily hear about it and it's not publicized doesn't mean they don't do it.

    Jada has self interest in this, but she isn't the only one who is petitioning for black celebrities to boycott the Oscars. There is pressure from the black community on Chris Rock as well to step down as a host....

  • Buttercup

    She got to cussin and shit and I turned it off.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Hot mess .... face looks swollen and probably feel like memory foam smh

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    Exactly what others are saying...

  • jussaying

    I think this is very important... i also think, however, perhaps more refined black celebrities would show up to our award shows if we made an effort to use more discretion in what we lift or at least be inclusive to uplift more things. For the most part, black celebs [in general I don't know about the Smiths], do tend to show up to the NAACP Image Awards as they definitely seem to hold their members to a higher caliber. Additionally, it's POC which I've noticed has extended to other minorities of color as well (and whites attend).

  • Nix

    I see nothing wrong with her comments...She's right. If Will was nominated Jada wouldn't have said shat about a boycott she would be prepping them cheekbones for the show. MF's living in poverty and we care about stupid azz awards. Fawk the academy

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Omg I cackled that day until my sides hurt

  • Yoni

    Go next door. You need to see something.

  • jussaying

    You mean the Oscars? Yes, it feels to me that they are aware they don't have any black nominees but chose Chris Rock to host to garner black interest and pander to us.

  • Ni Ni

    I have family there that already have ailments so this is added stress.

  • Di Ana

    I guess when you reach that level of stardom and riches you also loose your brain cells. How the fck Jada gonna ask for people of color to hold back their resources? It's not a bad suggestion however it was done at the wrong time. It sounds like Jada is feeling some kinda way because of the backlash Will got in that movie Concussion with that wack a** African accent. Had she done it before the movie than maybe it wouldn't have been just a big deal and yes we could take her up on her suggestion to hold back our resources. Wrong timing and selfish agenda award goes to Jada!

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    Haha, with her jokes from the 90s.

  • Afiya

    Wonder if she would have felt the same if Will wasn't involved? And they did this back in 95.

    That would be too much like right! I do not know why Black people place so much value on things associated with White people. Like I seriously don't get it. Then, when I watch the white people Oscar movies, I am left seriously underwhelmed. Yes, we need to start showing up to our own awards shows and placing value and importance on them.

  • SameoleJ

    But "we" have nominated, acknowledged and even awarded white's awards at our own shows. I know people complain, but some complaints are valid. Jada's complaint is valid, but her self-serving reason behind it, made it simply a blah, blah, blah. Honestly, I would have preferred that none of the black actors attended the event in protest for all the inequalities that are happening to our people in the streets, like the killing of our children and innocent people, Flint, etc. That would have made a huge statement.

    My favorite episode was when Aunt Viv decided to get back into dancing. When she did that routine to "Good Vibrations" and snapped at those 2 sprite girls. She was IT!

  • Nix

    Oh and even if Will was nominated Leo would still take home the oscar and he didn't speak but three words lol...That movie was the shyt!!

  • mzwhang90210

    Aunt Viv made some valid points.
    If Will wouldn't go to bat for his supporting cast on Fresh Prince, but now expects other actors to support HIM then that's a valid point.
    I sense a twinge of bitterness but I understand. That debacle with Will Smith basically derailed her career as I remember reading that the word was spread around that she was "difficult" and then nobody would hire her.
    Wow.

  • Low E. {CIRCA 1908}

    NOW YOU TALKING...BUT THAT'S TOO MUCH LIKE RIGHT.

  • SoChlo

    I actually agree with you Sandra. This whole boycott thing reeks of trying to find validation from a group of people. Validation comes from within not some clown ass award show. Let's boycot something that affects more than your husband's pride.

  • Too Many Colors

    I said it. You know I did. Bye hun

  • lovelygamour

    janet does have a point. its not like will smith is uplifting other black performers. so why should they miss the chance to get some camera time. will and jada aren't going to give them a job or pull them into pictures. their kids only hang around white kids. so black performers who didn't do anything Oscar worthy should go. make some connections.
    now for the ones that did and was snubbed, they shouldn't go. like micheal b. Jordan, they like to parade him around. he has friends and a good team behind him. if I was him I would say I didn't feel well. if he has to go I wouldn't pay. free everything and I wouldn't do a lot of pictures or press.

Ion get it .... Blacks are smarter than just getting awards .... we have the smarts to own all this shyt ... but we complain about what damn award we didn't get .... an item that can collect dust .... they get paid millions ..... but because you don't get the shine ..... oh let's boycott.... not to mention the same folks you boycotting paid yo azz .....

  • Guest who

    Exactly why should we support his black @ss now since he's not getting a little award from his fellow white colleagues. Those are the same people signing his million dollar plus checks. Please he and Jada need several seats. We have to watch our back while driving black to worry about this dumb sh!t!!

  • Buttercup

    Yaaaas. Dancing is my heart, so naturally, I learned that routine. I can't imagine doing that at 40 years old.

  • SameoleJ

    That is why I say all of the blacks who attended should have boycotted because of the everyday injustices, then perhaps the others would have joined their movement and supported Jada's rant. Other than that, it was just a complaint.

  • Mrs Mary

    she is telling the truth and i never liked will and jada and this pathetic front they put up. if they want to do something they need to be more active in the community and more supportive of their own people and the real problems that their own people are facing in america today. they need to put their money where their mouth is at and build and give to their own people without bias.

  • mzwhang90210

    She's a sistah with pride. An accomplished & trained actress.
    On the one hand, Black women are supposed to have pride & high self esteem...but when it's utilized we are labeled bitter with a nasty attitude.
    But men (eg Kanye West) can basically lash out publicly with little or no objection from folks.

  • mzwhang90210

    JenEEE *kiss*
    I don't find her bitter at all. That's too easy & common a label.
    I do think she's resentful, which, if you research her story..she has rights to be.
    I wouldn't have come out as harsh as she did...but I understand.

    I thought they had a distribution co...when him and his son made that movie.. I may be wrong

    Now I for one do not think any celebrity should be obligated to help folks etc .... but I find it interesting when folks want to lead a cause and got mo shyt going on at home ..... choosing to ignore the obvious.... Now far as Giving back to black Will has ... Jada is all about this portrayal of powerful woman etc ..... but to be a leader of this kind of movement when she sips tea with these same folks is absurd ..... and it just so happen your husband was rightfully snubbed .... yeah Jada can take a seat

  • Buttercup

    Aunt Viv said they have their own production company. They only use it for their and their friends' projects. Then again, if they did it to help minority actors, they'd probably be placed in the same box with Tyler Perry.

  • Miany

    This makes me wonder. Does she really have a nasty attitude or does she act in the same way her sprite counterparts do? We all know that we aren't afforded the same luxuries of speaking up and making demands as others.

  • mzwhang90210

    They said the same thing about Rosanne Barr.
    What people don't seem to get is...anybody who refuses to be pushed around, who objects to being treated as "less than" can easily get labeled as "difficult/complicated to work with."
    A Black woman stood up to Will Smith on HIS show..and as per usual...folks side with the man. LOL smh

    That's what ppl are missing .. it is not just abt the Smiths . Let's be honest we ppl are always more willing to speak or act out when shit hits home . Jadas reasons may be a bit selfish but let's not act like the Oscars aren't over looking our ppl .

  • I want to be free

    They have a production company that makes movies but like Viv says it's mostly their friends, family (Karate Kid, Pursuit of Happyness) or Will (Hitch, Hancock, Ali, etc.).

  • Buttercup

    Fire the Mayor and lock him up. Folks had been complaining about the water for months before he decided to do something about it. Many kids will be forever impacted by his lack of response.

  • Smartypants

    Yes Ms. Hubert for your flawless hair!

    I echo her sentiments. Did it ever occur to them that he didn't get a nom because maybe, just maybe, he didn't deserve one?

    The vast majority of black films produced in 2015 were horrible. So...Black hollywood needs to take this, reflect, and do better.

    Leo gets a lot of flack cuz he wants an oscar badly..and it shows. He's not doing fluff films like many of "our" actors and actresses. Be serious about your craft, and it will be serious about you.

  • zeta4life

    Yes....in a nutshell...I have been labled "aggressive" but in my field I gotta be...even in the military....hell I think Jada gotta funky attitude..lol

  • Just Keya

    Thank you. The boycott was never about the Smiths. Jada just had something to say about it. That's her and her husbands right not to go. Just like if others want to go, it's their right to attend. People want to attack Jada like they can't see the bigger picture. I don't see the Oscars inviting Janet or Wendy so tuh

    I could be missing something but did Jada say boycott the Oscars because Will wasn't nominated or did she say boycott the Oscars because there was not a single Black person nominated in the major categories.

    The ridiculousness of this post is unreal. Jada's point was completely missed by SR, Wendy, & Janet H. The #OscarsSoWhite were trending on Twitter long before Jada suggested a boycott. Last year celebs were also pissed about the lack of minorities nominated for Oscars! The point is, we're regressing, in terms of progress in cinema and music. Our films and our music are not being recognized on a national acclaimed level. These organizations, like the Grammy's and the Oscars, are supposed to celebrate and recognize the best in music and cinema. Why should we be excluded from our (rightful) recognition of our artistic abilities? The shit is shameful.

    And while I do agree that we should celebrate and recognize our own in music, television, and cinema, the truth is, black folks hate each other and can't be in the same space for very long before some mess starts popping off. Too many blacks thinking they're better than the next cause : they're a reality star, too hood/ratchet, so-and-so is gay/transgendered etc etc that's why a certain caliber of blacks would rather attend a "yt function" cause they know there will only be the "best" of black folks in attendance.

    I can only go by what I've read from people who WERE there on the set. I'm not saying that she went about it the "right" way but I won't dismiss her by labeling her as bitter either. Lots of actors take stands and it blows up in their faces...but Black women have to be "bitter" when "we" do it.

  • LibraGirlonly

    Yeah right. Sarcasm

  • Smartypants

    But in every field there are standards...should those standards be diluted in the name of diversity? If that's the premise of your argument I don't want that type of diversity. Nor do I want to see someone win an Oscar because of it.

    Representation matters. I get it. But upholding the accolade of an Oscar for excellence does too. Black actresses need to do more of SOC, Beasts of No Nation, Concussion and less The Perfect Guy and Ride Along. Had more black actors produced Oscar-worthy performances the odds of our own being nominated would be greatly increased.

    Argue that point if u want, but it's simple mathematics.

When they realized they weren't going to get fair representation at the parade, they decided to create their own gathering on the lakefront; which in my opinion, was a lot more fun than the predominantly white parade.

  • Smith Jane

    Spike Lee touched on your point. Yes, a lot of our lack of nominations does come down to what studios are and aren't willing to green light. Which is why we're left with comedies like Ride Along etc., However, think about films like Selma, Creed, SOC etc, how is it that the black actors were shut out, but the Sylvester and the yt writers for SOC were nominated? Idris and Will Smith did an amazing job on their films and were still snubbed. Yet Jlaw has been nominated 4x for an Oscar? Some of these nominated films weren't great or even Oscar worthy, yet they've been nominated? I think blacks have become so conditioned to having to be 10x better than the next yt guy, that they start to believe that they're mediocre, when theyre not.

    Oh please! When you are around excellence there's no debate when you see it. Hence, why the Obamas are revered.

    JLaw is probably serious about her craft. Sure, her fluff film is Hunger Games but that's not her only role. Sure black actors are in a position where they might have to take what they can get to eat. But I'm sure they can try a lil harder.

    The operative word here is agency. They have it. Do they recognize their role in the lack of noms?

  • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

    We don’t see white people protesting over the lack of nominations for whites on black awards shows.

    Where is our sense of black pride? We must do better.

    ------------
    This is because we LET them into our circle freely.like our Music Awards...I want one..just one of our shows to treat Yts like they treat our art.. Don't award them for shyt other than what we think they should be portraying. So the next time unless, Eminem comes out singing Tom Jones with a crew cut and a cardigan HE AINT WINNING SHHHHYYYYDDD!!!

  • Smith Jane

    That's because blacks would rather criticize and analyze the messenger, than receive the message. Suddenly we're getting a run down on what Jada has or hasn't done for the black community. Like, who gives a f---! It still doesn't change the fact that the Oscars are becoming more and more white-washed and have no problem keeping black actors out of the process.

  • Auditor

    Lol

  • Too Many Colors

    Goes to see if Jada made a video about the Grammy's and people of color being shut out in major categories a few years back. Since music is how Will got on. Since she likes to make videos so much. Doubt it since he is not music anymore, and already HAS GRAMMY'S. It doesnt PERTAIN to her. So I bet she doesnt care about it.

    *goes to go look*

  • Ria

    It took for your husband to not be nominated for you to speak up on this issue? Were you blinded and brainwashed by your Scientologist cult that you didn't care because you and your husband were so busy mingling with the likes of Tom Cruise and participating in orgies? You're now seeing what Hollyweird is all about and it's not pretty. The devil will collect sooner than later. There are more important things to worry about.

  • mzwhang90210

    I do get what alot of folks are saying about Aunt Viv's (alleged) "attitude." LOL.
    But I'm extremely sensitive anytime an AA woman is called bitter, angry, etc.

    I've been in situations before where folks have perceived me as being aggressive or angry..simply because they see most if not ALL Black women as being that way. What I call speaking "passionately" other folks perceive as neck rolling and tongue sucking. NOT because that's how I spoke, but because that's how they perceive ANY Black woman who dares speak up for herself.
    An AA woman with a strong voice and a straight spine..who speaks up for herself...is more oftentimes than not---viewed as the banshee with the problem, who causes problems. SMH.

    Me and a yt chick can repeat the same words of displeasure...yet MY words will seem more agressive simply because that's how alot of folks....(sadly, we Black folks included, smh), see Black women as angry, loud and uncouth. And I for one am sick of it!~!!

    Still nothing huh... I heard my Co workers talking about how bad the water is there.... I got a little curious!

  • Too Many Colors

    You know how folks make a video to accept an award and they are on set etc?

    Goes to see if Will made a video to accept his NAACP Image Award since he didnt BOTHER to show up to accept it.

    *goes to go look*

  • Smith Jane

    Honestly, I don't know. Katherine Heigel has also been labeled difficult and you see how fast her career hit the skids. I think it's harder for people in positions of power (this includes men AND women) to work with women (especially black women - cause we're expected to be GRATEFUL to be able to work in ANY setting - corporate Amerikkka or Hollywood) who are assertive, aggressive, and ambitious. They're intimidated by it.

    But, like the other poster said, as women (particularly women of color) we have to pick our battles. From what I've heard, about Janet H, her complaints were that Will was disrespectful and unprofessional. Would blast rap music and would just be disrespectful in general. I don't know, that would annoy the hell out of me. Especially if I have the same credentials as Janet. You want to work with professionals and people who have a respect for the craft that they're doing - and when you don't have that, or you're working with someone who takes their opportunities for granted, it would piss me off too.

    ((Shrugs)))

    Don't #ENDRANT!! It is so true, but as I tell them during the interviewing process and upon meeting me......I can only be me, I will get the job done, however I will do it with my personality.

  • Miany

    well he did boycott the grammy's when HIS award category was not going to be televised...so we see he speaks up when they play with his recognition.

  • Auditor

    Lol me too

  • nucynu25

    From what I gather basically Jada shouldn't speak abt it bc her & hubby are apart of Hollywood . I just don't get that , that's like telling an employee who's been wronged @ work stfu bc u work there , how u going to speak up against the person who writes the checks . Not to mention she didn't even say it was abt Will but even if it is so what that's her hubby .

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Asking what someone does for a living is actually very poor etiquette. If someone mentions something specific about their job, I may take the inroad and ask, otherwise, I consider that not my business.

    I have a couple of friends that we started like that. We were mad cool and I may have even learned that they worked at XYZ company, but I didn't necessarily know what they did for XYZ.

And if I just met you, I don't want you clocking what my wallet may or may not look like.

  • mela.reign77

    I strongly agree that if we don't stand for something we will fall for anything. I think it should be boycotted because truthfully speaking the Oscar's are geared to honor Caucasian's. plain and simple. I think they believe if they invite or ask one of us to host (Chris Rock) then this should make us hush and satisfy us. I think there are so many great actors both African American and the likes but we are merely noted and almost never honored. Will Smith latest movie may have been a flop but this man has played so many great roles. Angela Bassett, Cecily Tyson along with a host of other great actors and the only thing they get is nominated if that. The movie Creed star or leading role was an African American male but the only person to get a nod is Sylvester Stallone. Come on that's ridiculous! Don't get me wrong I love Sly for all of his Rocky's well except that last one but that's neither here or there. Did he deserve to be the only one nominated absolutely not. We have to stop allowing people to pacify us and stop being afraid to speak up. Aunt Viv is just trying to make a comeback, however if it helps land her another role as an Aunt or something, good for her. But don't discredit the people that are tired of being Hollywood's puppets.

  • Buttercup

    If Lil Butter says anything about Honey Dip coming to visit, it's like they go into a frenzy. "It must be hard taking care of two households. How do you manage things when he's not here?

    I have one up on this... How about when I was in school I used this shuttle to school. This shuttle service hired people who were basically unable to get a job otherwise mkay. This white rundown woman use to drive the bus(clearly once or is a methhead) She saw me with my 3 everyday going and coming from school. 2 years later I run into her working at Waffle House. I tell her I finished school. she said Oh thats good your doing better..What? So after I finished my food I find her outside smoking. I walk up to her, and while we talking I press the unlock to my brand new Lexus GS 300 (this was 2003) She say oh whose is that? WHAT?!! Mines!! She says..oh glad to see your doing better.. LOL chile I was working for the state while going to school, had my own place non-government assisted. and her azz had the nerve to say glad to see you doing better like she pitied me at one point..

    it's unfortunate that she came off as being in attack mode. for me it diminished a few valid points. it's simply unhealthy to hold on to a grudge from wayyyy back. for her own peace of mind i hope she is able to make peace with it and let it go. you are 60 and still beautiful. let it go! i have a keen interest in anthropology and ethnology simply due to me not understanding humans and culture- specifically my people and my culture. there were 17 black men who were killed by other black men in chicago during the 1st few days of 2016. when are we going to address self-imposed cultural injustices? what about black women being dehumanized by black men? when are we going to start cleaning up our own house from a cultural standpoint? jada also has strong points. it's extremely important to address injustices imposed by others. it has a lot to do with hegemony wherein one social group is dominant over other social groups. at some point white males are going to go through a detox period of relinquishing control over other social groups. the leadership in most corporations are overtly run by white males. and then there's systematic racism which is automated. if there was ever a time to take on self-imposed injustices, hegemony, and systematic racism it is now. there's plenty of room for everyone to take an active role. for that to happen jada, aunt viv and all of us have a part to play.

    Why Halle have to let a white man pop her to get a Oscar?"

  • ShelleDC

    True ... and the original owners can't stand what the channel has become. They say it is now opposite of what they wanted it to be. BET is owned by Viacom. The same company that owns VH1, MTV, Channel 5, and Nickelodeon.

  • lovelygamour

    you are trying to sound smart but you sound stupid. I didn't say you said she should hold her tongue. I don't feel like explaining anything to you. if you cant follow rational thought then so be it.

    You gonna give us a post on the poison they passing off as water in Flint?

  • harley_quinn2.0

    I see they like to the ghetto word around a lot. They don't realize they're going to get a little "ghetto" to earn their keep on this show. They have made a deal with the devil (Andy Cohen).

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    What did she say?

  • MzApple

    say that *clap emoji*

  • Shaw Sway

    It's a long time to hold a grudge but Janet Hubert career in Hollywood was over after the firing from the Fresh Prince of Bel Air. Will Smith career flourished but hers stop. Janet always felt that her difficulties with him played a major role in limiting her career.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    The Flint health officials say the water is safe to drink. So what if it's a little discolored? I remember a time when there was no bottled water. We all drank tap water back then. We didn't have the luxury of drinking bottled water. My mom is 85. She grew up drinking well water. She had no running water or toilets. She used an outhouse. People complain because they don't realize how good they have it.

  • mela.reign77

    Yes and oweee.. it's a lot of tea to be spilled on that show. Well with Jamal Bryant and his ex wife that is. The other ladies, honey I guess they're only known in Potomac because I have never heard of any of them or their significant others . However I like Giselle , she's fun to me and pretty laid back oppose to the other ladies. The other women are a bunch of stick in the muds..

    In short, he has a problem keeping it in his pants.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    I wondered if she gave specific details. I knew a chick who used to screw him on the regular so that he was a cheater isn't news.

  • Like Me or Not

    "It’s pathetic how black people constantly seek validation and recognition from the descendants of slave masters.

    We don’t see white people protesting over the lack of nominations for whites on black awards shows.

    Where is our sense of black pride? We must do better."

    REALEST ISH EVER!

  • harley_quinn2.0

    She didn't get into that kind of detail. She did say he can't keep it in his pants and likes to play the hide the salami ??.

  • Blue

    Aunt Viv handed Will and Jada the puzzle pieces of their lives. Wow.

  • elaine9245

    I'm kinda with Janet on this even though I understand Jada's frustration. Not a good solution that may lead black actors/actresses to get people possibly blacklisted. Many black actors are not even in their financial class so trying to raise a stink about an organization that has never given blacks the recognition they deserve seems pointless. The best thing to do is find other ways that will include all. Boycotting just doesn't seem practical.

  • mela.reign77

    Sandra I agree with you however there are so many more chemicals now days it's crazy. Call me old but I really don't buy bottle water I boil my water like my grandma used to do and let it get cold. Lmbo... I'm telling my age now :)

    I agree...I boil my water before drinking and have filters on all the sinks and showers.

  • Binky Brown

    That move dismantled her acting career. I'm not sure she'll ever get over it. But in some ways she is right. Had Will stood with them back then everyone would've been given a raise,(just as she said the cast of Friends did) but he was being selfish. Now you're asking people to stand with you just because you didn't get nominated. Tables have now turned...

  • morenYAHdelsur

    I still agree with Jada. There's no need to ask, it's not dignified. And had her husband received a nod, we wouldn't be in this predicament LOL. It would mean at least one black person was nominated, so I understand how some can say she's pissy her husband didn't get anything, but it doesn't make sense LOL.

  • Auditor

    Shoot I'm young and still boil my water.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Somehow I wouldn't doubt it.
    She seems full of herself and quite opinionated.

  • SpeshalGift

    I get what everyone is saying yada yada ya... but Jada never asked anyone to boycott the Oscars... she said she would not be attending... for her own personal reason... now we as blacks have put the boycotting because of Jada all over social media... only one who said they were boycotting was of course spike lee

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    But whatever happened on the set of FPOBA occurred over 20 years ago.
    Sometimes you have to be the bigger person and let it go.
    BTW if she were so accomplished why is it that I don't remember seeing her after she left the FP?
    Oh I know it's the same lie that Monique has been peddling for all of these years--she was blacklisted.
    Ha, ha, ha!!!

  • Queen B

    Lmao?? i said the same thing!!! She's funny

    I couldn't agree more.

  • mela.reign77

    Really? I thought I was alone or the only one in my thirties doing it. People laugh when they see me doing this.

  • Auditor

    Yup...where I work the water sometimes comes out brown. I have an electric kettle to boil my water and drink tea all day. At home I have filters on my shower and sinks. I boil water sometimes not all the time though. :)

  • mela.reign77

    I think that water has been declared unsafe. My local news said that the National Guard will be giving out water there indefinitely.

    I agree, Sandra. By now, black people should've created the Ophelia's or sumthin' for black excellence. Like a Razzie, but more prestigious.

  • Meme81

    If she ever wanted to get back into Hollywood, I doubt it will happen now. I guess she said 'forget it' and let have.

  • toni walker

    Beyonce never goes to any of these awards except for the grammy's and no one complains about that.

  • digal704

    You don't see white people doing it because they are getting the nominations. However, I agree with Janet and Wendy.

  • toni walker

    What are you talking about no one is complaining when Adele [WHO HAS NOT PUT OUT ANY MUSIC IN FIVE YEARS-SO WHEN HAVE ANYONE COMPLAINED] gets awards or Justin and who is this "WE" you are referring to? Black people more than any other group accepts anyone. The post was about why Blacks need validation. Most Blacks do not complain when whites get nominated at the BET or any awards show. To suggest that is an exaggeration with no facts behind it!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    What are you doing for your community instead of pointing the finger at Black people for complaining crap. WHAT ARE YOU DOING? People want to criticize the faults of others but have done nothing themselves!

    Janet Hubert should go and sit her old ass behind down. She has been angry ever since she was let go at Fresh Prince of Bel Aire. Who holds onto something that long except a nut bag. The other actors on that show spoke out against her years ago.

  • Anna Maria

    Because that was the role of her life and she is still pissed that they didn't love her enough to keep her on even with all of her antics on the set.

    She mentioned Will not standing with her and other coworkers at negotiation time. I think for her sanity, she needs to move on, not that she doesn't have valid points. I mean, you lost a job 20+ years ago. Most people have been through that. She should count it as a blessing that God doesn't have her in that loominati system anymore.

    Sorry to post again on this but unfortunately I only read the write up and was unable to view the video at work. I got an opportunity to watch the video when I got home and let's just say I was not impressed. First of all how dare you start off by calling this grown woman miss thang, and such. Second of all what in the heck did Jada do to you? Her vent session was merely from a place of anger and I cannot believe that she's still holding on to something that happened almost 30 years ago. Yes we do have other things going on in the world but both Will and his wife are actors so at the moment that's their battle. Janet is crazy as heck and I see why I haven't seen or heard anything from her since the Fresh Prince. Whether she realizes it or not although the Smith's are boycotting the Oscar's they will still get roles and such. I guess she needed the 5 minutes of fame, but like her career that will be over shortly so chile buh bye!

    Stand for something or fall for anything. Note to Wendy: this is long overdue however it had to happen it has happened, the Oscars are RACIST and they needed to be called out so whatever her motivation, I don't care.

  • Barb-in-Bmore

    I have a problem with this boycott. The movies that Black actors were in are not known to me. Its hard to support it when you haven't seen any of the films. I don't think black people should be nominated just because they're black and so we must fill a quota, just if they are as good as their white counterparts. I'm not sure if this year we had that.

    I'm with her on the accent. It was the token "African" accent that they used in coming to America. Idris Elba nailed it in beasts of no nation (prob cus he has family from sierra Leone but anyway). I'm glad that as an African American she picked up on that. Thats sth that needs work in Hollywood. Africa is a diverse continent not some country where we all sound the same
