In a pretty lengthy Instagram post, The Game who is still salty about the Oscars like many of us is calling out Regina Hall and the writers behind some of the jokes the hosts make.
According to him:
It’s one thing to be a beautiful black woman as accomplished as @morereginahall is & not be able to put your foot down when pre-reading a “joke” clearly written for her by someone else (I’m assuming a white writer)… but another thing to try & clown a truly family-oriented man of integrity, supreme character & class on a stage where we are still not wanted & truly only get awarded when they feel they should “throw the monkey a banana” as my late grandmother would put it.
This is the same way they set up Chris Rock with pre-written content that I’m sure they knew would outrage Jada & Will.
They didn’t think Will would slap him for it & that’s where things get tricky….
Because it backed Will Smith into a corner where he acted on impulse & had to defend his wife & make a decision that they are trying to crucify him for.
I’m not personally shooting at Regina Hall or Wanda Sykes… I’m just saying, you see they didn’t let Amy Schumer read that line.
Furthermore, it’s kool to joke about us with us because we as black folks understand each other in that manner.
It is only when it’s pre-written & they’re conspiring beforehand to once again use US against US for their own humor.
This mentality isn’t any different than the documented Willie Lynch letters where slave masters used to put their two strongest “slaves” in a fight to the death against one another gifting the winner a warm plate of home-cooked food.
We have to STAY WOKE, especially during this time in life now where the world seems to be destructing right in front of our eyes.
I’ll say it again, when I crack jokes on my brother… he cracks jokes back & it’s in good humor. It’s only when we are the butt of their deep rooted hate for us do I have a problem… the track record of these huge stages & platforms have always been very questionable.
The fact that we are still fighting this fight hundreds of years later is absolutely nuts. As you were #Numinati ?? @kingjames .
This is the video he is referring to:
Not sure what we should do with this, but we will ask the question.
Should the Oscars be held accountable for the jokes they write and who they pick to read the joke? Or is this a reach?
