Shots Fired: Chris Rock Drags Jada Pinkett Smith in Oscar Monologue

Shots Fired: Chris Rock Drags Jada Pinkett Smith in Oscar Monologue

The Academy Awards host didn't hold back.

Published February 28th

The Oscars are underway and host Chris Rock certainly delivered when it came to his promise of a #Blackout. The comedian pulled no punches eviscerating Hollywood in his opening monologue, but also ruthlessly dragged Jada Pinkett Smith for her vocal boycott of this year's awards.

"Jada Pinkett boycotting the Oscars is like me boycotting Rihanna's panties," he quipped. "I wasn't invited."

Twitter is having a field day with the diss:

It's clear that Rock is nowhere near done calling out #OscarsSoBlack. Let's see who he comes for next.

Though this was not Will Smith's year for a nomination, check out the actor humbly talk about his craft in our exclusive interview below:
