I think Will Smith is an asshole for what he did to Janet Hubert (aka first Aunt)


From the "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air". I just watched the reunion, and he met with Janet after a 27 years feud. He totally did her dirty. He admitted to blackballing her after calling her "difficult to work with"; thus, causing Janet to not find work in Hollywood. He owes her reparations. What a dick.

I will never look at him the same way again. He has this "nice guy" persona but it's all a ruse. I'm glad he got his karma when that young dude (19 or 20 years old) was smashing his wife . Now he knows what it feels like to be wronged by someone. I wonder how that makes him feel like a man that he can't pleasure his own wife but some kid can.

I feel a similar sentiment towards Alfonso Ribeiro (who played Carlton) because he was way more nasty towards her too.

Will and Alfonso both seem to be threatened by strong black women.

Strange, none of my white friends ever refer to their wives as "strong white women". Maybe they do but not to my face? Anyway, I never hear it in public..

He admitted to blackmailing her...


Anyway, I think you mean "blackballed" not blackmailed. I have no idea if Will Smith is a dick or if Hubert was difficult to work with. Anecdotal evidence suggests she was, but in any case, I think it takes the more than the claims of a young actor to establish a history of difficulty. You can be sure that people we don't know, such as the producers, directors, cameramen, electricians, set builders, etc. have a fine idea of how difficult people are to work with. I'm sure that within circles, people in Hollywood know exactly who is a pain in the ass and who isn't, Will Smith's input notwithstanding.

I admit that it might not be accurate, but gossip mongers have said for years that Smith and Pinkett have an "open" marriage. Personally, I think that's disgusting but as long as they're both in agreement, then they are only living the lifestyle they have chose. I'm sure Smith had his share of "smashing" pretty much anyone he wanted over the years.
