Since the Kevin Hart oscar-hosting saga started, just about everybody (besides Whoopi Goldberg in fact) has been conserving their distance from the awards present. Now, Chris Rock has additionally chimed in to ensure the Academy is aware of he needs nothing to do with the present.
While presenting an award on the New York Film Critics Circle Awards, Rock defined, as many ageing comedians do these days, how the world is much less permissive by way of issues which might be deemed "offensive," saying, “if it was 5 years in the past, I may say one thing actually offensive and humorous proper now, however I can’t do this anymore, so…heyyyy!” If this can be a reference to the homophobic Tweets that Kevin Hart despatched out between 2009 and 2011, Rock has missed the mark as a result of the Tweets merely aren't humorous:
Rock tried to discover a resolution for the Oscars-hosting debacle by pointing to an iconic comic within the viewers on the NYFCCA: “Steve Martin is right here. You ought to host the Oscars. You’re one of the best.” Rock elaborated: “Steve Martin ought to host the Oscars! Because I’m not doing it, goddammit! You’re not getting me.” They've solely acquired a few month left, so that they higher get somebody quickly.
