Last week, Jada Pinkett-Smith and Spike Lee took a stand against the Academy Awards due to diversity concerns.
Will Smith told Robin Roberts that he's skipping next month's Oscars ceremony in an interview on Good Morning America, claiming the awards are "not reflecting that beauty" of Hollywood as a whole.
"It would be awkward for me to show up with Charlize," Smith joked. "[Jada and I] have discussed it, and we're part of this community but at this current time, we're uncomfortable to stand there and say that this is okay."
No actors or actresses of color were nominated in acting categories this year.
Will starred in the movie "Concussion" which was praised by many movie critics. While many expected Will to receive a nomination for his role in the movie, he was snubbed as well this year.
"There's a position that we hold in this community and if we're not a part of the solution we're part of the problem," he continued. "And it was her call to action for herself and for me and for our family to be a part of the solution."
