JANET HUBERT, the Fresh Prince of Bel Air's original Aunt Viv, has attacked disgraced actress Lori Loughlin after being released from prison.
Former Full House star Loughlin, 56, was released from a federal jail in Dublin, California, on Monday after serving two months for a college admissions scam.
She had pleaded guilty in May to conspiracy to conduct fraud after paying bribes for her daughters to secure places at the University of Southern California as members of the college's rowing team – despite them never having rowed in their lives.
But former Fresh Prince star Hubert, 64, had some choice words for the 'white, blond and privileged' actress.
"So when white actresses commit crimes they get new shows, pilots, etc," she tweeted on Monday.
"Lori Loughlin …I assume, will get an Emmy for her time in prison.
"Hmmmm…oh to be white, blond, and privileged! No thanks I would rather be bold, black, and dignified! #onlyinamerikkka."
In agreement with the former Fresh Prince star, one follower replied: "THIS is what Jada’s mother was talking about.
"No that girl will be just fine. Her family will be ok. She doesn’t need any other support."
Janet Hubert played the character of Vivian Banks or ‘Aunt Viv’ on the show from its first season in 1990 until the end of the third season in 1993.
However, her character Aunt Viv lived on and was re-cast as actress Daphne Maxwell Reid.
Will Smith always said the pair had creative differences and she was difficult to work, which then smeared Hubert's reputation.
Hubert and Smith recently ended their 27 year feud and hugged it out while they filmed a special HBO Reunion special.
And recently YouTube star Olivia Jade, Loughlin's daughter broke her silence on the scandal during an interview with Jada Pinkett Smith on Facebook series Red Table Talk.
The 21-year-old admitted her family had used their privledged position for personal gains – and apologised for her involvement in the scandal.
‘I feel like a huge part of having privilege is not knowing you have privilege, and so when it was happening, it didn’t feel wrong. I also felt very misunderstood.
"The picture that has been painted of me, I feel like, is not who I am. I’m not this bratty girl that doesn’t want to change anything…
"When you read it, you realise that there’s like some truth. I understood that people were upset and angry, and maybe it took me a little bit longer to understand what for, but man, am I glad I did realise."
