The world might have got flipped, turned upside down by an impromptu Fresh Prince of Bel Air reunion yesterday (March 28), but die-hard fans of the show will have noticed someone missing.

Paying tribute to Phil Avery (Uncle Phil), who passed away in 2013, Alfonso Ribeiro, Will Smith, Tatyana Ali, Karyn Parsons, Daphne Etta and Joseph Marcell got together for a group photo.

Notably absent, however, was the OG (and we're gonna say it, best) Aunt Viv, Janet Hubert, who left the series after its third season amid reports that she and Will Smith kept clashing on-set.

Not one to shy away from Fresh Prince-related controversy, Janet has since addressed the cast's reunion, slamming the Banks family – and Alfonso in particular.

Throwing some serious shade over on Facebook, Janet wrote: "I know the media hoe Alphonso Ribero (sic) has posted his so called reunion photo.

"Folks keep telling me about it. He was always the ass wipe for Will. There will never be a true reunion of the Fresh Prince. I have no interest in seeing any of these people on that kind of level."

Reassuring fans she was not offended "in the least" by the photo, Aunt Viv added: "It does however prompt me to take some meetings in Hollywood to pitch my memoir PERFECTION IS NOT A SITCOM MOM, and tell of the behind the scenes story before I leave this earth."

Now that sounds juicy.

If you would like to see Aunt Viv back with the gang, then you can always head on over to Netflix, where the full series is available to stream online. *Does Carlton dance on loop*
