Earlier this week, Jada Pinkett Smith called out the Academy for the lack of diversity amongst the 2016 Oscar nominees.
It’s an important and legitimate complaint, but Jada has met with some serious backlash – and not just from the bigoted comment board trolls who always throw tantrums over this sort of thing.
Yesterday, Janet Hubert – who played the original Aunt Viv on The Fresh Prince of Bel Air – went off on Jada in a bizarre four-minute video that she posted online.
It wasn’t terribly surprising, as Hubert and Jada’s husband, Will Smith, have openly disliked one another for years.
The latest criticism, however, comes straight of of left field, courtesy of noted crazy person Alexis Arquette, who posted, then quickly deleted the following batsh-t rant on Facebook:
“When Jada comes out as gay and her beard husband admits his first marriage ended when she walked in to him butt servicing his sugar daddy Benny Medina..then I will listen to them.
Will threw a fit on the set of Six Degrees of Separation when he was required by the scene to kiss Anthony Rapp. He persuaded the director to shoot the back of his head in frame.
Blocking the non existent lip lock entirely. Fuck him. Gays have enemies. They lurk in gilded closets. Outing is healthy. You are either wish or against us. You decide. Today.”
Rumors about Will and Jada’s sex life being far from traditional have been circulating for years, but even if every single one of those reports is true, who the hell cares?
What does that have to do with Jada’s accusations of bigotry within the Academy?
What’s the point of any of this, aside from drumming up some publicity for Alexis Arquette, whose previous claim to fame was describing Jared Leto’s penis?
Anyway, we’re sharing this story because it’s interesting, but Alexis deserves exactly zero space in your brain, so please zap yourself with one of those Men In Black memory-erasing dealies right now.
We’re sure in this case, Will would happily lend you his.
