Days after the Oscars, Tyrese is clapping back at Chris Rock for the “tasteless joke” he made during his opening monologue. Chris spoke on everything from the Oscars lacking diversity to black people needing to focus their energy on other issues going on in the world. But he really struck a nerve when he called out Jada Pinkett for calling for a boycott after Will Smith was snubbed in the nominations.
In an Instagram video and post, Tyrese claims he didn’t watch the telecast, but he heard what Chris had to say through the grapevine. In case you missed it, Chris said, “Jada got mad, Jada says she’s not coming, protesting, I’m like – doesn’t she have a TV show? Jada boycotting the Oscars is like me boycotting Rihanna’s panties. I wasn’t invited.”
“Did you really use your STAGE to tear down and diminish one of the strongest most fearless black women IN this town as the world watched??? Jokes are just jokes right?” ~ Tyrese
Peep Tyrese’s full rant here:
I didn't watch – I didn't – but online people are talking and someone posted the tasteless joke that Chris Rock did in his opening – Did you really use your STAGE to tear down and diminish one of the strongest most fearless black women IN this town as the world watched??? Jokes are just jokes right???? Not when someone is trying to affect change……… Not when someone is willing to put it ALL on the line to affect change for our daughters and sons of the future…….. Shame on you Chris Rock – Now let me run to YouTube and watch Leo's acceptance speech………… So f*cking proud of you Leo……
