There Is So Much Buzz About This Oscar Boycott.

January 22, 2016 by The ReadyWriter


jada-janet-550x318Every since Jada Pickett Smith and Spike Lee, waged an all-out war and called for a boycott against the ‘Oscars’ for not acknowledging a single African American actor in any category from the academy; everyone seem to be weighing-in with an opinion.

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.

The first person to respond to Jada was Janet Hubert, the original “Aunt Viv” from the “Fresh Prince Of Bel Air” who seem to have this on-going beef with Will Smith.

“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.”

It’s obvious Janet is still bitter and lil bit salty over her premature departure from the 90’s sitcom after she was given the “boot” for demanding more money.

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

TMZ caught up with Tony Rock (Chris Rock’s) brother to get his take on the situation, because after all, Chris Rock will host the event when it airs on February 28th.

It’s pathetic how black people constantly seek validation and recognition from the descendants of slave masters. Rock stressed in the video how “We don’t need to kiss white people’s ass’s for an Oscar” “We can create our own shit, cause they gon copy s anyway”.

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

    This tickles me. The Post cover is hilarious. And Janet needs to have several seats. I think Chris’s brother is right, though. We worry too much about validation from the Oscars. They’ve never given blacks their due but they still sit waiting for that handout. Smh.

        Slavery and losing a job in Hollyweird aren’t the same things. Every one has been either laid off or fired at some point in their lives.

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

      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…

    If any rich or wealthly negro actually agrees to buck dance for the Oscar’s , I’m boycotting them. Chris Rock doesnt really have a choice at this point so I’ll let him slide. If you don’t stand for something you’ll fall for anything. About time we stood up for ourselves, they need us we don’t need them.

    In my opinion a whole lot of people are getting really nervous and upset over a possible boycott by Black people. Maybe we should try it in other areas and see if we can get some results.

    Speaking the truth…. Jada is fighting the wrong battle. Will Smith was garbage in that movie Concussion. Accent was horrendous. I never see Will speaking out about black injustices. Jada yes Will no. But I’ve been saying that black people need to get over the damn Oscars. Who the hell cares about a damn gold statue. It’s not like your pay increases after your win (ask Monique or the 5 other black actresses/actors that has won one) .

    As for Janet she’s entitled to her own perspective on the situation. She gave me something to think about as far as Will Smith dissing her back in the day when she wanted to get paid more. BUT let’s not forget when he boycotted the Grammys in ’89 either!!!
