Carlton from The Fresh Prince gives an extraordinarily candid description of what happened with Aunt Viv on the show. Aunt Viv recently called Will Smith an asshole and Carlton has something to say about that.

Carlton is still funny, loved the presentation and honesty. I always thought the first Aunt Viv was a bit over the top.
I recall sitting in the audience for the filming of the show, and during the preshow Will Smith made quite a few ” Dozens” Jokes. I found them tacky,but the white audience members ate it up. I thought that he was insensitive at best. I have heard the first Aunt Viv described as ” Uppity” Yet another phrase That I despise, but the truth is that she represented a well educated dark skinned woman in a media where we are RARELY seen in a positive light. Maybe the producers of the show should have thought about that.
