Despite calls for him to step down from hosting the 2016 Oscars, Chris Rock is staying put. This year’s Academy Awards are being boycotted by a number of black actors and actresses, who are not happy with the lack of diversity. Academy Awards producer Reginald Hudlin confirmed that Chris is to stay as host for the event that’s set to be held at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on 28 February 28. The comedian rewrote his monologue after black entertainers like Spike Lee, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Will Smith spearheaded a boycott due to the lack of black actors and filmmakers nominated for awards. He’s new script will now focus on addressing the #Oscarssowhite issue.
