The Banks family is feuding again.
Everyone jumped for joy when the cast of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reunited in an Instagram picture earlier this week. Everyone but Janet Hubert. To refresh your memory, Hubert played the original Aunt Viv on the ’90s sitcom before she was replaced by Daphne Maxwell Reid after conflicts with her contract and members of the cast. Since her departure in 1993 there has been bad blood between her and Will Smith.
In a response to the reunion photo, the actress took to Facebook to throw a bundle of shade, mainly at Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton Banks) for posting the photo.
“I know the media hoe Alphonso Ribero has posted his so called reunion photo,” she states. “Folks keep telling me about it. He was always the ass wipe for Will. 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.”
Clearly she still isn’t over the two decade long beef. In the post she acknowledges that the photo was taken at “an event for Karen [Parsons] charity” and that it doesn’t offend her. So what motivated her to create this post?
“It does however prompt me to take some meetings in Hollywood to pitch my memoir PERFECTION IS NOT A SITCOM MOM,” she reveals. “And tell of the behind the scenes story before I leave this earth.”
It seems this feud is far from over. Read her full Facebook message below.
