Aunt Viv Janet Hubert still Oscars

The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air actress Janet Hubert has given Jada Pinkett Smith and her husband a piece of her mind.

Janet Hubert - the actress who first played Aunt Viv in the hit 90s series The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air - has laid into Jada Pinkett and her husband Will Smith.

It all started when Pinkett Smith went on Facebook to post a video about why she wouldn't be attending the Oscars, calling for black actors to know the strength of their own "power" and stop "begging for acknowledgement".

We must stand in our power!

We must stand in our power.

However Hubert - who has had a long-standing feud with Will Smith - wasn't having any of it and used the same forum to let the Smiths know just what she thought of them.

The self-coined "blacktress" included in her rant:"People are dying, our boys are being shot left and right, people are hungry, people are trying to pay bills, and you're talking about some motherfucking actors and Oscars. It just aint that deep.

She added: "Maybe you didn't deserve a nomination. I frankly didn't think you deserved a Golden Globe nomination with that accent, but you got one. Just because the world doesn't go the way you wanted it to go doesn't mean you can go out and then start asking people to start singing 'We Shall Overcome' for you"
