50 Cent has entered the conversation regarding the lack of Black nominees at The Academy Awards. Chris please do not do the oscars awards. You mean a lot man, don’t do it. Please
After revealing the nominations for the 2016 Academy Awards on Jan. 14, the Oscars quickly came under fire for its lack of diversity in the ‘Best Actress’ and ‘Best Actor’ categories. Out of 20 possible nominations, every single one went to a white actress or actor.
Spike Lee, Jada Pinkett Smith and Snoop Dogg are just a few artists who have stated that they’ll be boycotting the ceremony, which is set to be hosted by Chris Rock.
Earlier today on his Instagram account, 50 asked Rock not to host the awards show.
“Chris please do not do the oscars awards,” 50 captioned his post “You mean a lot man, don’t do it. Please.”
