Emo Actor Tyrese Slams Chris Rock Over Jada Pinkett Smith Joke

By  | 

Full-time publicity THOT and part-time Transformer actor Tyrese is furious with Chris Rock following Sunday’s Academy Awards. Tyrese posted a video on Instagram blasting the show’s host for poking fun at Jada Pinkett Smith during his opening monologue.

“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,” the comedian joked. The punchline, which Tyrese admits he didn’t see himself since he didn’t watch The Oscars, prompted him to post this bi-polar video on IG.

While Rock did make fun of Smith, Tyrese neglected to mention all of the other things he did while fulfilling his hosting duties, like skewer Hollywood. “But why are we protesting this Oscars?” Rock asked. “It’s the 88th Academy Awards, which means this whole no-black nominees thing has happened at least 71 other times.”

“I’m sure there was no black nominees some of those years, say ’62, ’63, and black people didn’t protest. Why? Because we had real things to protest at the time…We were too busy being raped and lynched to care about who won best cinematographer! When your grandmother’s swinging from a tree, it’s really hard to care about best documentary foreign short,” he also commented in his opening monologue.

It’s worth noting that Tyrese was one of the few celebrities calling on Rock to boycott The Oscars, something Rock responded to during the show. “People are like, ‘Chris, you should boycott. How come only unemployed people ask you to quit something?’ No one with a job tells you to quit.”
