“Chris please do not do the oscars awards. You mean a lot man, don’t do it. Please.”

Both entertainers join a chorus of frustrated voices after the Academy Awards failed to nominate a single person of color in any of the acting categories. Jada Pinkett Smith and Spike Lee have announced that they will not be attending the ceremony in protest. Many believe Will Smith should have been nominated for his work in Concussion and Idris Elba for his work in Beast of no Nation.

There were four films this year: Creed could have gotten nominations; Concussion could have gotten Will Smith a nomination; Idris Elba could have been nominated for Beasts of No Nation; and Straight Outta Compton could have been nominated.”

No word on if Rock intends on dropping out, but he’s well aware of the #OscarsSoWhite controversy.
