Rumors Surrounding Chris Rock's Oscar Monologue Plans Have Finally Been Addressed By His Rep

As more and more outcry is being had about the Oscars, it's becoming harder to ignore, especially for the people involved. 

With Will and Jada Smith, Don Cheadle, Snoop Dogg, and others either stating their disappointment with the lack of diversity or flat out boycotting the awards show, action is being expected of more people, probably none more so than the eminent host himself, Chris Rock.

There's the claim that the comedian has already rewritten his opening speech, according to the ABC show producer Reggie Hudlin. Rock's publicist quickly shot that theory down. "Regarding Reggie Hudlin's comments about Chris Rock's Oscar hosting duties, neither he nor anyone else speaks for Chris," Leslie Sloane told the Hollywood Reporter. "Chris has made no decisions about the content of the show. All will be revealed on February 28th. We will not comment further on this.”
Looks Like The Show Will Go On

For now, all bets are off. Chris Rock is by no means an entertainer that panders to political correctness, but exactly how he will tackle this issue is apparently going to be a surprise. It does look like he'll still be presenting, despite some people suggesting he step down from his duties as host. This only begs the stipulation that, knowing his reputation, he does plan to say something.
