Singer Tyrese claims he did not watch the Academy Awards this past Sunday. But when he got word that Oscar host Chris Rock used the vast stage to rip into Jada Pinkett-Smith, Tyrese went volcanic on the comedian.
Tyrese climbed onto Instagram to put Rock on full furnace blast for making fun of Pinkett Smith, who started the the Oscar protest last month that also included her husband Will Smith and Spike Lee, among others.
Here’s what Tyrese had to say to Chris Rock:
“Someone posted the tasteless joke that Chris Rock did in his opening,”
“Did you really use your STAGE to tear down and diminish one of the strongest most fearless black women IN this town as the world watched???
“Jokes are just jokes right???? Not when someone is trying to affect change……… Not when someone is willing to put it ALL on the line to affect change for our daughters and sons of the future…….. Shame on you Chris Rock.”
Tyrese was far from finished peeling Chris Rock’s scalp back for mocking his friend Pinkett-Smith. Take a look:
