“I am so thankful for all the love being shown and the understanding. Will and team let me participate in whatever I wanted and felt comfortable doing,” Hubert tweeted on Thursday, the day the 30th anniversary special premiered. “After 27 years of disconnect we are all different people. It was great seeing everyone, life is too short!”
Hubert left the show before Season 4 and was replaced by Daphne Maxwell Reid. Smith has been vocal about how he and Hubert clashed while working together, while Hubert maintained a decidedly negative opinion of her former co-stars. In 2016, she criticized Smith and his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, for boycotting the Oscars to protest the awards show’s lack of diversity.
