Black hate speech:  Chris Rock dubbed a hypocrite for mockery of Asians

Despite the Oscars focusing on the lack of diversity for this year's acting nominees fans have expressed outrage over a different jab at racial stereotypes.

Academy Awards host Chris Rock was accused of being a hypocrite after joking about lynching and poking fun at Asian stereotypes.

In the skit, Rock welcomed to the stage three children all of Asian decent dressed in suits and gripping onto suitcases fitted to their size.

"The result of tonight's Academy Awards has been tabulated by the accounting firm of PricewaterhouseCoopers," Rock said.

"They sent us their most dedicated, accurate and hard-working representatives.

"Please welcome Ming Zhu, Bao Ling and David Moskowitz."

After receiving lukewarm applause from the crowd, Rock continued: "If anybody's upset about that joke, just tweet about it on your phone that was also made by these kids."

The outspoken host was slammed on social media for going too far and treating the issue of diversity irresponsibly.

"If the Oscars were all about diversity, why the crude Asian joke?" Tracy Chou said.

"Chris Rock was a hypocrite at #TheOscars. Don't use the diversity card when you can't speak for all minorities," Alexander Siu said.

"That's good Chris Rock, complain about racism and then make a joke about Asian kids fixing your phone," another added.

The Albatross bird-brain got that backwards - "PC poppycock" was a US invention that was exported to Britain and the rest of the world.
