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.”

“I got halted every now and again,” the award-winning entertainer outlined in another meeting.

Talking with political reporter Angela Rye on her “On One with Angela Rye” digital broadcast, Will Smith examined the current Black Lives Matter development, protests, and his own encounters with police during his childhood in West Philadelphia.

“I grew up under, you know, Mayor [Frank] Rizzo. He went from the chief of police to become the mayor and he had an iron hand,” the Academy Award-nominated actor recalled. “I’ve been called ni**er by the cops in Philly on more than 10 occasions, right? I got stopped frequently. So, I understand what it’s like to be in those circumstances.”

“Be that as it may, I went to Catholic school out in suburbia, so I comprehend what the variations are in a truly intriguing manner,” he proceeded. “White kids were happy when the cops showed up and my heart always started pounding. There’s a part of this that people who don’t grow up in that, you just can’t comprehend. You just can’t comprehend what it feels like to feel like you live in occupied territory.”

Smith likewise talked about the expression “Black Lives Matter” and counter-protests chants like “All Lives Matter” and “Blue Lives Matter,” saying the issue of conflict lies in miscommunication.

“Something as simple as ‘Black Lives Matter,’ what’s the fu*king point of contention?” he asked. “The point of contention is that’s not what the person’s hearing. So, that’s where communication rules come in very handy.”

“For somebody to respond, ‘All lives matter,’ ‘Blue lives matter,’ it’s like…” he said, making a frustrated face.

With respect to the progressing against police brutality, Smith said persistent protesters’ “rage” is totally justified, yet he’s thankful that demonstrations have remained for the most part tranquil.

“For the world to see what we’ve been saying for hundreds of years — my grandmother taught me to be thankful for these opportunities, to be thankful for your pain,” he said. “The entire globe has stood up and said to the African American people, ‘We see you, we hear you. How can we help?’ We’ve never been there before.”

“What I love about the peaceful protests — peaceful protests put up a mirror to the demonic imagery of your oppressor,” he continued. “The more still you are in your peaceful protests, the more clear the mirror is to the oppressor for the world to see and for them to see themselves.”
