And I like him too. But come on...all we've been hearing about regarding the Oscars is Hollywood's lack of diversity and racism and stereotypes and blah blah blah... Then the Host of the Oscars - Chris Rock- goes up there Sunday night and talks about diversity and racism and stereotypes and blah blah blah... So I found it more than a little ironic and hypocritical when Chris made racial jokes about Asian children. Here is how the New York Times reported it:
Amid generally positive reviews of his jabs at Hollywood and #OscarsSoWhite, the host of Sunday’s Oscar ceremony, Chris Rock, is being taken to task for some of his material involving Asian-Americans.
Introducing the accountants from PricewaterhouseCoopers, which tabulates the vote results, Mr. Rock instead brought onstage two boys and a girl of Asian heritage, whom he named Ming Zu, Bao Ling and David Moskowitz. As they clutched briefcases, they visually illustrated the stereotype that Asians are diligent workers who excel at math.
“If anybody’s upset about that joke, just tweet about it on your phone that was also made by these kids,” Mr. Rock added, a punch line interpreted as a reference to child labor in Asia.
WTF? All the 'I'm better than you' limousine liberal tree-hugging pretentious Hollywood doosh bags think racist jokes about child labor are funny? It really demonstrates how hypocritical and shallow minded most of these Hollywood people are. Bunch of Jack Asses.
