Jada Pinkett Smith has called for an Oscar boycott for its’ lack of diversity and the snub against her husband, Will Smith for his acting role in the movie “Concussion.”

Since the pressure has been mounting for people to snub the Oscars, now Chris Rock is feeling the heat and being asked by Hollywood notables not to host.

Tyrese, R&B crooner & movie star, is telling Chris Rock to bail out on his Oscars hosting gig because it’s a no-win situation for the comedian.

“There is no joke you can crack to ever change the way we all feel,” Tyrese said.  50 Cent similarly encouraged him to quit.

Although Mrs. Smith will not be participating, she does support Chris Rock as the host and wished him well because he is a very capable host.
