Tyrese, the biggest publicity hound in the history of Hollywood, is calling on Chris Rock to withdraw from hosting the Oscars. The Fast & Furious person posted this dramatic message on Instagram Wednesday morning:

Point taken, we just wish it would have been made by someone else. Speaking of which, rapper 50 Cent also called on Rock to step down from hosting duties, writing on IG:

“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.

Even George Clooney agreed, saying in a statement issued to Vanity Fair, “There were nominations left off the table. 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.

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
