This year’s Academy Award nominations showed a remarkable lack of diversity (enough to get #OscarsSoWhite trending, again). Nevertheless, Chris Rock (he’s a Black guy, if you’re unaware) is the host and he’s already got jokes.
The renowned actor and comedian equated the Oscars to the “White BET Awards” in a tweet that contained a promo for the award show.
Do it for your people, Chris.
The Oscars air live on Sunday, Feb 28 on ABC.
