Singer and actor Tyrese is not here for Chris Rock hosting the forthcoming Oscar Awards. The “Transformers” star wants Rock to step down from his hosting duties in efforts to show his support for the countless number of African American actors that were overlooked within this year’s nominations.
“Chris Rock do the right thing make a statement – were relying on you to DO the right thing….. There is NO JOKE YOU CAN CRACK TO EVER CHANGE THE WAY WE ALL FEEL” said Tyrese in an Instagram post.
Chris Rock recently divorced his wife of nearly 20 years, Malaak Compton and he has to pay child support for his two daughters as well as spousal support. Passing up a check from the Academy and ABC is no laughing matter!
