Chris Rock Hasn't Planned His Oscars 2016 Monologue Yet

Chris Rock has not yet planned what he will be addressing in his monologue at the 2016 Oscars despite the show’s producer claiming he’d tackle the #OscarsSoWhite controversy.

The 50-year-old comedian’s rep has responded to reports that Chris rewrote his speech after the nominations were announced.

“Regarding Reggie Hudlin‘s comments about Chris Rock‘s Oscar hosting duties, neither he nor anyone else speaks for Chris,” his rep told JustJared.com in a statement. “Chris has made no decisions about the content of the show. All will be revealed on February 28th. We will not comment further on this.”

Here is what Reggie originally said to ET: “Chris is hard at work. He and his writing staff locked themselves in a room. As things got a little provocative and exciting, he said, ‘I’m throwing out the show I wrote and writing a new show.’”

The 50-year-old actor is rewriting his script after figures like Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith announced they were boycotting the ceremony, Variety reports.

Chris is hard at work. He and his writing staff locked themselves in a room,” Reginald said. “As things got a little provocative and exciting, he said, ‘I’m throwing out the show I wrote and writing a new show.’”

Reginald added, “And, yes, the Academy is ready for him to do that. They’re excited about him doing that. They know that’s what we need. They know that’s what the public wants, and we deliver what the people want.”

“Black women have the hardest gig in show business. You hear Jennifer Lawrence complaining about getting paid less because she’s a woman—if she was black, she’d really have something to complain about,” Chris told the New Yorker.
