Will Smith has publicly apologized to Janet Hubert for being insensitive during the shoot of “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, a popular series of the nineties.
The first two seasons went smoothly. In the third season Hubert became pregnant and the feud began. She left after season 3. During the reunion this November, she explained that the cast had been unaware of her personal issues at that time.
Smith told Vanity Fair that he wasn’t “sensitive to Hubert, when she was pregnant. He added that he has more compassion now, after becoming a father. Hubert also acknowledged that Smith had been in a different place at that period of his life. She said that she was willing to move forward in their relationship.
“I could not do a 30-year celebration of this show and not celebrate you,” Smith told Hubert. “Celebrate your contribution to this show and celebrate your contribution to my life.”
Following their reunion Mo’Nique shared on Instagram that she was one of the viewers. The comedian used this reunion to speak with her ongoing feud with Tyler Perry who she claimed supported accusations against her; of being difficult to work with. She also demanded an apology from Perry.
“Hats off to Will Smith for apologizing for what he did to Janet Huberts (everybody’s Aunt Viv) career/life when he was young,” Monique wrote. “Perhaps Tyler Perry, who has admitted in private that he was wrong will follow suit and be man enough to apologize in public like he promised. We’ll work on Oprah [Winfrey] & Lionsgate a little later.”
