"Black-ish" star Jenifer Lewis appeared on MSNBC's "The Beat" to discuss President Donald Trump's "madness" and "blatant cruelty."
Lewis said: "I speak to the Millennials, those kids grew up with me as the aunt on Fresh Prince, the mother in a lot of African-American movies and I have a special relationship with them, and I'm here to say to the protesters continue peacefully protesting. Get what you need in this great challenge before us. Don’t stop all the diversity, the millions upon millions, it's a sea of humanity that is out in the streets right now saying that's enough of the oppression on killing our children in the streets. They know it's wrong. There has to be reform. And it can’t be a modest bill, Mr. Trump. We have to get to the root of the racism, the deep hate. I have never seen so much hate. It’s so disturbing. We have to come together. we cannot be divided."
The 63-year-old comedienne and character actress plays the mother of lead actress Tracey Ellis Ross on Black-ish.
When asked who she plans to vote for in November, Lewis said, "Well, that choice should be Mr. Biden. We have had enough of this madness, the blatant cruelty, the lies upon lies. We could have been warned back in January. Look how many people have died. This is wrong. We need leadership. My friend, today, do you wear a mask? You don't wear a mask? Well, he doesn't wear a mask. Pence didn't wear a mask, and then you see him in a mask. Leadership, this is the greatest country in the world. Well, you know what? No. The world is great. And that's what has to be new."
Lewis, who was diagnosed with sex addiction and bipolar disorder in 1990, told PEOPLE in 2017, "I have peace of mind now; I'm in my skin. It took years to get to that place, but I did it -- and I have a smile on my face."

This back in the day one shot actress who made her fame off that role as a singer, skyrocketed to fame. She enjoyed that for about a year or two and then was told the things she would need to do to stay at the top. She decided she wanted no part of it and walked away from it to do her own thing. Since then, the government has been constantly on her and they have done so because the people that wanted to control her career keep requesting investigations in hopes she will come back to the fold. She doesn’t. Now, do I wish she would show up on time and not cancel shows? Yes. But, more power to her for not being a sheep.

But some celebrities look drastically different when their makeup is removed.
Stars have taken to social media to stay relevant amid the coronavirus lockdown in their cities. Reality TV personalities such as Kandi Burruss and NeNe Leakes spend their days sharing makeup-free images to humor their followers.
One actress's makeup-free photo has gone viral online because she is nearly unrecognizable without makeup on.
Can you guess who this actress is? Hint: the actress and pop singer Rihanna have something in common.

Actress Ja'Net Dubois, star of the 1970s sitcom Good Times, died in her sleep on Tuesday. She was 74.
Dubois, born Jeanette Dubois, is best known for her playing neighborhood gossip Willona Woods on Good Times, the TV sitcom that was notable for being the first prime-time TV series with a Black, 2-parent household.
Dubois wrote and sang the theme song titled "Movin' On Up" for The Jeffersons TV sitcom, starring Isabel Sanford and Sherman Helmsley.
Television producer Norman Lear discovered Dubois in a play at the Mark Taper Forum, which led to an audition for his innovative TV series Good Times, which ran from 1974-1979.
Dubois played adoptive mom to Janet Jackson's character, Penny, and she later appeared in Jackson's "Control" music video as her mother in 1987.
Dubois' film roles included I'm Gonna Git You Sucka (1988) and Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle (2003). She also appeared in the television series Moesha, The Steve Harvey Show, A Different World, The Wayans Brothers and Everybody Loves Raymond (as a school bus driver).
In the 1980s, Dubois founded the Ja'Net DuBois Academy of Theater Arts and Sciences for teenagers in Long Island, NY. She and Actor Danny Glover co-founded the Pan African Film & Arts Festival in Los Angeles.
DuBois had two children: Rani Dubois and Raj Kristo Gupta, who died of cancer in 1987 at age 36.
This beautiful young lady grew up to play a pivotal role in a classic 1980s comedy movie. The much-anticipated sequel is finally in production after 31 years!
