Alexis Arquette attacked Will Smith and his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, in a Facebook rant over their complaints that this year’s Academy Award nominations lacked diversity.
The transgender sister of Oscar winner Patricia Arquette wrote in a scathing post: ‘When Jada comes out as Gay and her beard husband admits his first marriage ended when she walked in to him butt servicing his Sugar Daddy ..then I will listen to them.’
Arquette added: ‘Will threw a fit on the set of Six degrees of Separation when he was required by the scene to kiss Anthony Rapp. He persuaded the director to shoot the back of his head in frame. Blocking the non existent lip lock entirely. Fuck him.’
The rant concluded this way: ‘Gays have enemies.They lurk in gilded closets.Outing is healthy. You are either with or against us. You decide. Today.’
The Smiths have not commented on the rant.
Arquette has appeared in more than 40 films including playing a Boy George-like singer in The Wedding Singer and supporting roles in Pulp Fiction, Threesome and The Bride of Chucky.
She is the sibling of actors Rosanna Arquette, David Arquette, and Patricia Arquette. Her transition from male to female was documented in the film Alexis Arquette: She’s My Brother which debuted at the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival.
Arquette made headlines in the summer of 2014 when she claimed to have slept with Oscar winner Jared Leto while she was still presenting as a male.
