Actress Alexis Arquette took a major swing at Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith in an epic Facebook rant on Tuesday, “outing” the married couple by arguing that Mr. and Mrs. Smith’s comments on race and boycotting the Oscars were invalid because they won’t ’fess up about their alleged homosexuality.
The controversy began last week, when many black actors, including Will Smith, did not receive what many believe were deserved Oscar nominations, reports the NYDaily news.
Jada Pinkett Smith posted a video on Facebook announcing her intentions to boycott the Feb. 28 Academy Award ceremony.
The transgender actress and gender-rights activist, who transitioned in the early 2000s and documented the experience in “Alexis Arquette: He’s My Brother,” wrote on Facebook: “When Jada comes out as Gay and her beard husband admits his first marriage ended when she walked in to him butt servicing his Sugar Daddy Benny Medina ..then I will listen to them.”
She continued: “Will threw a fit on the set of Six degrees of seperation when he was required by the scene to kiss Anthony Rapp. He persuaded the director to shoot the back of his head in frame. Blocking the non existant lip lock entirely.Fuck him.Gays have enemies.They lurk in gilded closets.Outing is healthy.You are either with or against us.You decide.Today.”
