Talk about a cheap shot.
It looks like Chris Rock has done it again – and by that I mean he’s pissed off the Internet. Twitter reacted rather angrily to the usually funny man’s ‘Asian joke’ at the 88th Annual Academy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday night.
According to NBC News, the joke was about a stereotype of Asians being good at math with three children introduced as PricewaterhouseCoopers accountants with Asian and Jewish sounding names. Everything would have been fine until Rock said, “If anybody’s upset about that joke, just tweet about it on your phone, which was also made by these kids.”
Yet, the room full of super-rich, privileged and entitled Hollywood stars thought it was funny. And that’s when Twitter went nuts.
Chris Rock manages to upset Twitter once again with a child labor joke at the Oscars on Sunday.
