Tyrese also insists there is no way the comedian can use his position to properly address the lack of diversity in this year’s nominations.

The ‘Furious 7’ actor told People Magazine: ‘There is no joke that he can crack. There is no way for him to seize the moment and come into this thing and say, ‘I’m going to say this and say that I’m going to address the issue but then I’m still going to keep my gig as the host.

The statement that you make is that you step down.’ He continued: ‘If the host Chris Rock was a homosexual he would have stepped down already.’ Chris Rock hasn’t addressed the calls for him to step down but recently poked fun at the ‘all-white’ nominees.

Chris tweeted:

The #Oscars . The White BET Awards. https://t.co/8qjLR0uysI — Chris Rock (@chrisrock) January 15, 2016
