Legendary Comedian Chris Rock called out actor Jussie Smollett at the 2019 NAACP Image Awards which was held on Saturday (March 30) at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood. Jussie Smollett was nominated but didn’t show up.

During his presentation at the Popular Series Award at the event and just before announcing the winner, he spoke to the crowd, taking a jab at actor Jussie Smollet.

He said:

I get to present an award. They said no Jussie Smollett jokes. I know. I know. What a waste of light skin. You know? You know what I could do with that light skin? That curly hair? My career would have out of here. Running Hollywood. What the hell was he thinking? You Jesse from now on. You don’t even get the ‘U’ no more. That ‘U’ was respect…you ain’t getting no respect from me”.
