Chris Rock Fires Shot At Jada Pinkett-Smith While Addressing The #OscarsSoWhite Controversy During Oscars Monologue
For the past few weeks, the Oscars have been under fire after there were no black actors nominated for any of the major categories.
Jada Pinkett-Smith was the strongest proponent of boycotting the Oscars and during his opening monologue, Oscars host Chris Rock fired a shot at Jada and her husband Will Smith.
Jada boycotting the oscars is like me boycotting rihanna’s panties—i wasn’t invited”
“It’s not fair that Will Smith was not nominated for an award, it also was not fair that will Smith made $20m for Wild Wild West”
Rock later emphasized that he wasn’t interested in protesting the Oscars but was more interested in African American actors getting the same working opportunities in Hollywood than everyone else.
It seems like Rock was put in an impossible position but was still able to knock it out of the park.
