Seth was opening the show at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, when he let rip with a series of diss jokes, but none were as bad as the joke he made about Rihanna, 25, and Chris, 23. Seth was speaking about Django Unchained, and how the film is “unspeakably violent.” He then quipped that it is like “date night for Rihanna and Chris Brown.”
Seth was referring to the night in Feb. 2009 when Chris assaulted Rihanna prior to the Grammy Awards. While Seth was trying to rouse the crowd, joking about domestic violence is totally uncalled for. And Chris did not appreciate the joke!
Twitter user Wesley Lowery tweeted “Was in the room with Chris Brown when that joke about him and Rihanna was dropped. It was awkward. #oscars”
I would imagine it was!
While the majority of the audience groaned at Seth’s awkward joke, Robert Downey Jr was seen clapping, while Nicole Kidman laughed. At least some people enjoyed it! Meanwhile, Keith Urban and Halle Berry were stone faced.
Towards the middle of the Oscars, Seth goes: “I thought when I saw all that dark facial hair, I thought the Kardashians had made it to film.” Eeek, so is he saying that the Kardashian’s are hairy because they’re Armenian? We do know that Kim has gotten everything, and we mean everything, lasered off. She openly talked about it on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
