Rapper and king of trolls, 50 Cent, has added his voice to the #OscarsoSoWhite campaign by urging Chris Rock to turn down his role as the host of the show.
50 cent shared a photo of Chris on his instagram page. With the caption:
“Chris, please do not do the Oscars Awards. You mean a lot man, don’t do it. Please.”
50’s appeal makes him the 6th high profile black celebrity (Jada pinkett, Al Sharpton, Snoop Dogg, Spike Lee and Wendell Pierce have all called for a black boycott of the Oscars) to voice their displeasure over the absence of black nominees. At the Oscars for two consecutive years.
Chris has not responded to 50 Cent’s appeal yet.
