Ricky Gervais Offers Chris Rock Advice Amid Oscars 2016 Nominations Controversy

Ricky Gervais has offered Chris Rock some advice amid calls for him to step down as host of the 2016 Oscars after the #OscarsSoWhite has resurfaced for the second year in a row.

“If I were @chrisrock, I wouldn’t be considering boycotting The Oscars. I’d be thinking ‘this sh*t is live. I can do some serious damage.’ Ricky, who has hosted the Golden Globes for many years, offered up on his Twitter account.

Chris has so far not truly responded to all of the controversy. He did tweet, “The #Oscars. The White BET Awards.”

The 2016 Academy Awards are set to air on February 28.
