Tyrese Calls Today's Leaders Lazy, Wants Chris Rock To Boycott Oscars-the jasmine brand

Tyrese is not a fan of a few jokes made by Chris Rock last night at the Oscars. In particular the comedian’s shade toward Jada Pinkett-Smith doesn’t sit too well. Here’s a clip of Rock’s opening monologue, where he jokes about Jada. [Fast forward to the 0:50 mark]

Last night, the Fast & Furious actor posted an Instagram video, addressing his displeasure with Rock writing:

I didn’t watch – I didn’t – but online people are talking and 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 – Now let me run to YouTube and watch Leo’s acceptance speech………… So fucking proud of you Leo……
