Everyone knows not one person of color, not even the damn seats got nominated for an Oscar this year. As a result, Jada Pinkett Smith dropped a video this week calling for a potential boycott of the Oscars. Check out the video here.
Well Janet Hubert aka Aunt Viv, who was Will Smith’s costar on The Fresh Prince of Belair and has been his 20 year arch nemesis called them out on their hypocrisy here.
Where were the Smiths when other Black actors were ignored by the Oscars? We recall Will Smith saying “racism is actually rare.” Is racism no longer rare because he believes it’s happening to him? Are the Smiths willing to lose their career on the behalf of other Black actors or is Ms. Hubert being petty? Who do you think is right? Are they both right? I truly believe this discussion is bigger than the entertainment industry. I can’t wait to hear your thoughts.
The only limit you have is the one you have placed on yourself. Think and be limitless.
