Chris Rock isn't boycotting the Oscars, but he is rewriting his monologue to address the lack of diversity in nominees. And Don Cheadle can't wait to see how Rock roasts the Academy.
That's probably a jab at Oscar nominee Charlotte Rampling, who called the diversity backlash "racist to whites" last week. She's since backtracked on her comments.
Other celebrities who have criticized the backlash include Michael Caine, Stacey Dash and Ice Cube.
We've seen jokes about the Oscars' overall whiteness in the past. Last year, host Neil Patrick Harris joked in his opening monologue: "Today we honor Hollywood's best and whitest. Sorry, brightest."
Andy Samberg also mentioned Hollywood's whiteness when he hosted the 2015 Emmys. In the opening number about how he prepared to host, he sang that he watched every show "And I'm white."
We're guessing Chris Rock's monologue will have more than just a one-liner about the award show's diversity problem.
