Chris Tucker’s Slammed For “Horrible” Hosting At BET Awards

By  | 

Chris Tucker disappointed a lot of fans on Sunday night with what’s being described as a lackadaisical job hosting the BET Awards show. The comedian was at best, chuckle funny, but never reached the level of hilarity one would expect from the Friday star.

Outside of a Michael Jackson impersonation, Tucker failed to live up to expectations and those watching the show let him have it on Twitter.

  • “D*mn, Chris Tucker did horrible hosting the awards,” one fan wrote.
  • “Also, let it be known that if I wanted to see Chris Tucker’s standup before this show, well now I don’t. #OppositeEffect,” another Twitter user shared.
  • “Chris Tucker left his humor in rehab!” a viewer joked.
  • “Anybody got the details on where they holding the memorial for Chris Tucker’s comedy career? I was gonna airbrush a couple of tees,” a fan added.

After being hammered, one of Chris’ peers, comedian Mike Epps, came to the star’s defense, tweeting:

“Respect to Chris Tucker it’s hard to do live TV and hosting an award TV show. #BETAwards2013.”

True story, but we’re sure Tucker was paid handsomely to do more than an average job hosting. Did you watch the show? What did you think?

    All this article did was post the bad tweets a couple of nobodies posted. More than half the people on twitter was cracking up at this guys jokes so don’t try and act like people are slamming Tucker. The same idiots who posted those lame insults are the same ones who thought Kevin Hart screaming “Turn Up” was funny. Corny ass new generation, that’s all.

    I’m watching now and he was horrid. He was anxious, seemed like he didn’t have any jokes prepared and kept telling the audience what was happening behind the scenes. If he wasn’t prepared, he shouldn’t have accepted the job.

    I like Chris Tucker but he wasn’t that funny to me hosting the show. He’s been gone from the spotlight for awhile so maybe he was somewhat rusty.

    His hosting was not any better than the show it self. I caught the show late and thought I had missed something. NOT!!! Big shout out to Chris still loving him.

    In my opinion Chris didn’t do all that good!! To me it seemed like he was stalling time till the next act was ready. Now I did laugh at the Michael Jackson joke cuz I could see it happening in my head…lol Me personally I want Chris Tucker to make a come but not at the expense of his on people, (Black People). The movie game is about making good movies and good money (20 million a film money) And without the movie FRIDAY he would have never achieved the statutes that he made it too. He got Big Headed plan and simple and all of sudden he don’t wanna make those type of movies no more.. Now he’s broke people start feeling sorry for him like we do when one of us at the top falls we all pull together and support him. But giving a half ass performance when your getting paid to go hard is not cool. CHRIS!!! step ya GAME up, hire some Writers get ya mind right and call Ice Cube and be the bigger man and apologize for the way you been acting and except the role in the LAST FRIDAY!!!

    People need to realize it wasn’t a comedy show it was an award show. So stop hating he did what he was suppose to do and that was host the award show. I enjoyed it!
