Was Billy Crystal’s Oscar Performance Racist? What Do You Think?

 

Many people didn’t appreciate Billy Crystal’s attempt at humor during last night’s Oscar show, Global Grind reports.

 

When talking about the film “The Help” after Octavia Spencer‘s Best Supporting Actress win, he added some humor that some folks on Twitter didn’t find all that funny. Here is the line that got people annoyed: “I loved that movie (The Help)…when I saw it, I wanted to hug the first black woman that I saw. Which from Beverly Hills is about a 45 minute drive.”

 

Check out some of the Twitter responses Global Grind observed:

 

@moviefone: Billy Crystal: Race and old jokes. Yep, this is what you wanted, Hollywood.

@sonshinewiley: Billy crystals comment was both offensive and prejudiced regarding black women in Hollywood! #NoBueno #Oscars

@VanObserver: Billy Crystal makes a really weird #racist joke after Octavia Spencer’s win for The Help

But do you think people are being way too sensitive about all of this or did Crystal, in fact, cross the line? Let us know what you think?

Yeah black people need to stop being so sensitive and take it as a challenge. He saying that there aren't enough rich black people. Stop crying everytime one of these demons speaks the obvious and lets go do what we gotta do to show them who the f*** we are!
