‘Yo, Weave Woman:’ Angry Aunt Viv Goes Off On Another Talk Show Host
In Hollywood, you’re only afforded a handful of public spaz-outs before you’re given the severe side-eye and labeled as a looney tune. Fresh Prince of Bel-Air actress Janet Hubert, who is still affectionately known as the original Aunt Viv, seems to have used up all of her courtesy melt downs, leaving many of us looking at her with raised eyebrows and asking, “What’s really going on?” Within the past three years, the 57-year-old Chicago native has flipped out on former co-star Will Smith and talk show host Wendy Williams, both on multiple occasions. Now she appears to have beef with The Talk host Aisha Tyler.
During the show, Tyler commented on the vintage Fresh Prince of Bel-Air beef between Hubert and Will Smith, which set Hubert completely off (again). Making it clear that she was not pleased with Tyler’s comments, the 90s actress posted an angry message on the talk show host’s Facebook page.
“Yo, weave woman, your comments were not appreciated. You are not funny in the least. You know some people, and so do I. Remember that. You can be replaced quicker than I was,” Hubert wrote.
“You should remember how you got your job and why you are in that chair in the first place. If you want to dish it out, you better be able to take it as well,” she added.
Tyler, not being one to back down, responded to Hubert’s comments on-air.
“First of all, I think she has fabulous taste in daytime television talk shows – excellent taste. She’s obviously still very angry about something that happened more than 20 years ago, and that’s the part that I find saddest about all of this. Bad things happen to people all of the time. Unfair things happen to people all of the time. I wasn’t there. I don’t know [what happened]. As an adult, you move on in your life because it’s a trap to be stuck in this place of — from what I can tell — bitterness and it’s just sad,” Tyler expressed.
“I really wish her the best. I said it yesterday and I’ll say it again: She’s gorgeous, she’s talented and she should move on with her life, do great things and stop focusing on stuff that happened a million years ago,” Tyler continued.
