During a stand-up comedy show in Phoneix, Chris Rock told the spectators that Oscar organisers have approached him to host the 2023 Oscars despite the slapping events at the 2022 Oscars


He did not stop there but joked further that he would not return to the Academy Awards, that returning there is like asking Simpson “to go back to the restaurant” where she left her eyeglasses before she was killed.


Recall that in 1994, Nicole Simpson was stabbed to death, and her ex-husband O.J. Simpson was tried for her murder In one of the most highly-publicized cases in history.


However, the joke didn’t sit right on social media because many users took to the platform to express their disappointment at Rock’s thoughtless jokes.


Gregory Anderson, the photojournalist, said, “Comparing what happened to him to what happened to Nicole Brown Simpson is truly tasteless and not at all funny.”


After several slams on the comedian, many Twitter users also claimed that Rock did not receive this much backlash for the G.I Jane Joke because Jada is black, but Nicole was white, and the outrage was loud.

Rock and his team are, however, yet to comment on the issue.
