Every 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.
And since the New York tri-state area is supposed to be hit with a blizzard this weekend, this was the headlines in this weeks “New York Post”. “This Weekend Will be WHITER THAN THE OSCARS”
