Black Twitter flips out over Will Smith and Janet Hubert reunion
On September 10, Will Smith surprised fans with the announcement regarding a reunion special of “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”.
“We’re doin’ something for y’all… a for real Banks Family Reunion is comin’ soon…” Smith captioned an Instagram post which featured photos of him and cast members Alfonso Ribeiro, Tatyana Ali, Karyn Parsons, Joseph Marcell, Daphne Maxwell Reid and DJ Jazzy Jeff and honored the late James Avery.
However, the most surprising aspect was that the original Aunt Viv, Janet Hubert, will also appear on the special, although there was tension persistent between her and Smith for many years.
Needless to say, Black Twitter blew up with an array of reactions, most of them echoing the idea that 2020 is unpredictable!
“Janet Hubert and Will Smith are sitting across from each other and smiling. Chile…2020’s waters have been troubled,” one tweet read. “Ask for rain in the time of rain. Ask for favor while favor is falling.”
Another user tweeted, “Will Smith and Janet Hubert in the same room…and she’s not slapping the taste out of his mouth. 2020 has truly been a year of shit I would’ve never seen coming.”
Funnily, it was also questioned if the reunion between both the actors was in the Bible.
“I’m pretty sure Will Smith and Janet Hubert making up was one of the signs in the book of Revelations,” she penned in her tweet.
The reunion was compared to the meetup of Brandy and Monica Verzuz, which also seemed incredulous.
“First we get Brandy verzuz Monica and now Will Smith sitting down with the original Aunt Viv from the Fresh Prince, Janet Hubert??” she wrote. “I never thought I’d see the day cuz Janet talked mad shit for years about the Smiths chile…that’s growth.”
