The actress posted a video to her Facebook page Monday, where she criticized Jada Pinkett Smith over her decision to boycott the 2016 Oscars in response to this year's all-white nominees. "I was looking at this ridiculousness people called a historic moment and I was annoyed," said Janet, who had once played Aunt Viv on The Fresh Pince of Bel-Air opposite Jada's husband, Will Smith. "I was annoyed because it dilutes the movement when you only stand up for yourself."
"I'm a real freedom fighter. I'm not a pretend freedom fighter. I stand up for other actresses, other people. The Smiths just irked me because they are such pretenders, and everything is a photo op," she continued. "It's just self-contrived because her hubby didn't get a nomination."
