Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’sJanet Hubert isn’t the only one with a bone to pick with Will and Jada Pinkett Smith. In case you missed it, Hubert called out Pinkett-Smith for mulling over a boycott of the Oscars after her husband and other actors of color were left out of the four major acting categories. She then accused them of being self-serving and pointed out that there were more important issues to address. Now, trans actress and activist Alexis Arquette has her eye on the Smiths and she’s claiming they’re both gay.

In a short Facebook rant, Arquette said Smith threw a fit on the set of Six Degrees of Separation for having to kiss fellow actor Anthony Rapp—who famously played Mark Cohen in the Broadway and film version of the LGBT-friendly musical Rent. She went on to say that Smith made the director shoot the back of the head so it looked like they were kissing.

She also accused Smith of "servicing" major Hollywood manager Benny Medina, referring to him as Smith’s "sugar daddy," and alleged that his first wife was paid off for her silence. The Concussion star divorced Sheree Zampino two years before marrying Pinkett-Smith.

"When Jada comes out as Gay and her beard husband admits his first marriage ended when she walked in to him **** servicing his Sugar Daddy Benny Medina ..then I will listen to them," Arquette wrote, according to the Daily Mail.  In the comments, she reportedly voiced her support for outing closeted celebs by writing "'I used to think Michelangelo Signorile was wrong for outing. I'm completely for it now. Too many bullied teens dead."
