Last week, it was reported that Chris Rock was preparing to take on the Oscar So White controversy by allegedly changing his opening monologue to this year’s Oscars. Producer Reggie Hudlin told Entertainment Tonight that Chris was writing a new show, now a representative of Chris is claiming that isn’t true.
Chris Rock hasn’t figured out how he’ll address the #OscarsSoWhite controversy during his opening monologue at the 2016 Academy Awards. The rep for this year’s host tells E! News in a statement that Rock didn’t rewrite his monologue to call out the situation, despite what producer Reggie Hudlin said over the weekend. “Regarding Reggie Hudlin’s comments about Chris Rock’s Oscar hosting duties, neither he nor anyone else speaks for Chris,” Leslie Sloane, Rock’s rep, tells us. “All will be revealed on February 28th We will not comment further on this.”
