Daphne Maxwell Reid gets a lot of grief for her role on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
Reid took over for Janet Hubert as Aunt Viv on the beloved sitcom and fans definitely noticed the change. Reid has gotten heat for the recasting ever since.
However, Twitter user @eb4prez has reminded everyone that Reid is the epitome of Black excellence.
EB, also known as Eric Black and host of “Soul Savviness,” created a thread of Reid’s astounding achievements, which included some historic firsts.
EB continued by also highlighting Reid’s accomplishments with her husband, actor Tim Reid, including work on shows like Linc’s, Frank’s Place, and Snoops.
Reid was snapped back in March with castmates from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air at LA’s Nobu during a mini reunion, which also included Will Smith.
Looks like Aunt Viv number two is a real boss.
