Chris Rock Denies He's Rewriting Oscars Monologue After Race Controversy
The comedian responded to reports he was scrapping the show following the boycott.
Chris Rock is staying put as the host of the Oscars and he's shooting down reports that he's re-writing his entire monologue in light of the controversy over a lack of diversity at the Academy Awards.
Rock’s publicist, Leslie Sloane, is refuting claims about re-writing the show.
"Chris has made no decisions about the content of the show. All will be revealed on February 28th,” she said according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Rock had faced calls to boycott the show after the academy failed to nominate a single African-American actor.
On Friday, the Academy Awards announced plans to double the number of female and minority members by 2020.
