Published Mar 29, 2017This week, Will Smith and his friends launched a serious viral moment when they posted a so-called Fresh Prince of Bel Air reunion photo online. One person who wasn't involved, however, was Janet Hubert, the actress who played the original Aunt Vivian on the show. Based on a new social media post, she's pretty pissed about the whole thing.
Hubert famously played Aunt Vivian on the show for its first three seasons before being replaced by Daphne Reid. Some reports indicated that she was let go due to her pregnancy at the time, while others suggest she had trouble getting along with Will Smith.
Whatever the case, she had some major jabs for the cast photo, spitting particularly intense vitriol at Carlton actor Alfonso Ribeiro. "I know the media hoe Alphonso Ribero has posted his so called reunion photo," she said, misspelling Ribeiro's name. "Folks keep telling me about it. He was always the ass wipe for Will."
Further, she added, "There will never be a true reunion of the Fresh Prince. I have no interest in seeing any of these people on that kind of level."
Hubert also said she's not offended by the photo, but she is using it as a launchpad to pitch her memoir Perfection Is Not a Sitcom Mom. With prose like this, we can't wait to read her book.
