Tyrese Talks Chris Rock, Jada Pinkett Smith, And The Oscars

(The Wrap-Up Magazine) Tyrese Gibson didn't seem to approve of Chris Rock's joke about Jada Pinkett Smith during his Oscar's open monologue, Sunday night. The singer said that he saw a snippet where the comedian joked, "Jada boycotting the Oscars is like me boycotting Rihanna's panties. I wasn't invited."

The "Shame" singer decided to voice his frustrations with Rock in an Instagram video clip, and in turn, also congratulated Leonardo DiCaprio on his win for Best Actor in a leading role. He captioned the post, "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 f**king proud of you Leo."
