Tyrese Suggests Chris Rock Should Not Host Oscars Due to Lack of Diversity

Tyrese Suggests Chris Rock Should Not Host Oscars Due to Lack of Diversity

Tyrese was one of the first to speak out in support of boycotting the Oscars after it was revealed that all the acting nominations went to white performers for the second year in a row. Now, he appears to be questioning whether comedian Chris Rock should be hosting the awards show.

On Monday, Martin Luther King Day, Tyrese went on a rant about those choosing not to protest the awards show. “Is Chris Rock still gonna host the Oscars after this blatant racism?? Is everyone still gonna show up?? In this town, I guess it takes homosexuals to be discriminated against in order for someone to finally step UP and wanna do something,” he declared. “You have to take your hat off to the homosexual and gay community cause right now they’re as strong as black people USE to be when it comes to their rights.”

On Wednesday, Tyrese continued his argument, writing: “If Andy Cohen of [Watch What Happens Live] was hosting the Oscars and they purposely left out all gays and or homosexuals from being nominated, HE would of stepped down already. This is a #fact.”

Posted by Tyrese Gibson on  Wednesday, January 20, 2016

In 2015, no gay men or women were nominated in the acting categories at the Oscars, but Neil Patrick Harris, a homosexual man, hosted the awards show. At this year’s Academy Awards, not one LGBT person was nominated in the four acting categories.

The 37-year-old Furious 7 actor went on to say that while he wholeheartedly supports the boycott of the Oscars, he still thinks Leonardo DiCaprio deserves to win for his role in The Revenant. “For the record… I HATE that this is all happening on the year that Leonardo DiCaprio is gonna win his first Oscar for BEST ACTOR,” Tyrese quipped. “Leo looooooveeessssss black people!!!!!! Leo in my homie!!!!!”

However, not everyone agrees with Tyrese about boycotting the Academy Awards. “I don’t know if avoiding it altogether is going to help, but I just think we have to continue to move forward,” Niecy Nash told ET at the Critics’ Choice Awards. “We have this awareness and this spotlight — we’ve got to look at other work. There’s other work out there that I think was missed. We’ve just got to do better.”
