'Fresh Prince' Reunion: Janet Hubert, Alfonso Ribeiro Speak Out After Fans Question Where He Was During Her Segment

Even though most viewers of the HBO Max The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reunion are thrilled at Janet Hubert and Will Smith putting the past behind them, some wondered if Hubert still holds a grudge against Alfonso Ribeiro, who played her son Carlton.

Fans noticed that during the reunion, Ribeiro wasn't present during scenes with Hubert. According to TooFab, the absence could be explained by the back and forth she and Ribero had during her feud with Smith.

In response to a tweet about Ribeiro's absence, Hubert responded, "Don't assume, he was working and I wasn't there," she wrote. "Let it go sweetie, we have."

As TooFab reports, Ribeiro also commented on his absence on Tamron Hall before the reunion aired, saying he was filming America's Funniest Home Videos and wasn't available at that time.

Hubert has also tweeted about the event as a whole, saying she was "thankful" to have had the opportunity to hash things out with Smith.

"Will and team let me participate in whatever I wanted and felt comfortable doing," she tweeted. "After 27 years of disconnect we are all different people. It was great seeing everyone, life is too short!" She also tweeted that she believes in unity and that "it must start in our own community."
