Janet Hubert isn’t done bashing Will Smith and his outspoken wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith.

The Smiths just irked me because they are such pretenders, and everything is a photo op,” Hubert, 60, told the Los Angeles Times.

On Monday, Hubert caused a firestorm when she posted a video rant to her Facebook page calling out Jada, 44, for boycotting the Oscars and asking other black actors to do the same. “It’s just self-contrived because her hubby didn’t get a nomination (for Concussion),” Hubert added. Will, 47, has since jumped on the boycott bandwagon.

How dare you ask other actors to jeopardize their positions,” she dished. “Take it from me… [I was] blacklisted. Black listed, truly. I couldn’t feed my child. They left me penniless, homeless and worthless. But what I always had was my dignity and I always will.

Hubert played Aunt Vivian Banks on “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” from 1990 to 1993 and was unceremoniously replaced — and rumors circulated that she had been difficult to work with.

The self-proclaimed “blacktress,” who claims to have “Sallie Mae bills up the…,” says boycotting the Oscars is going overboard. “We’re not brain surgeons,” Hubert stated. “We are not curing cancer. We are not finding the next cure for Alzheimer’s. We are simply and merely entertainment.

Will and Jada aren’t the only ones Hubert takes issue with — she also slammed “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Nene Leakes.

Did you know Nene Leakes made it on Broadway before Janet Hubert? Something’s wrong with the whole system of bad behavior being rewarded,” she said. “I think in the black community, ratchet has became the new black, ghetto has become the new black.
