Chris Rock: 'They Said No Jussie Smollett Jokes.' Forget About That

The superstar couple attended the 2019 NAACP Image Awards on Saturday night (March 30) at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

"They said no Jussie Smollett jokes", Chris Rock said. "What a waste of light skin", Rock said. "That curly hair? My career would be out of here - I'd be f**king running Hollywood", Rock joked.

"What the hell was he thinking?" "You're "Jessie" from now on", Rock continued, as cameras showed Trevor Noah cracking up in the crowd. "That 'u" was respect, you ain't getting no respect from me". "We're not even going to talk about what's happened as of recent, but I believe he's always spoken his truth and what better place to speak it than in front of friends and family, you know?" She empathized with Jussie.

Hopefully, now that the charges against Jussie have been dropped, he can return to focusing on his career and moving forward from this very bad situation. The Cook County State's Attorney's Office dropped all charges against Smollett on Tuesday.

She was present to accept the award, and paid homage to the people who were nominated in the same category as her.

Kuchar, the 2013 victor , beat English 35th seed Tyrrell Hatton 4&3 and then beat Spanish 26th seed Sergio Garcia 2-up. I wish Tiger the best for the rest of the tournament, he made a couple of clutch putts on 15 and 17 to shut the door.

Others in attendance at the Image Awards, including "Chicago" showrunner Lena Waithe, 34, and actress Yara Shahidi ("Black-ish", "Grown-ish), said they stood with Smollett, supporting the actor".

"Power" was named the Outstanding Drama Series, while the show's star Omari Hardwick and Empire's Taraji P. Henson claimed the top acting awards for TV drama, and Ella Mai was a triple victor in the music categories, claiming Outstanding Album, Outstanding New Artist and Outstanding Song - Contemporary for "Boo'd Up". The "Empire" producers removed Smollett's character from the final two episodes of the current season after his arrest last month.

The decision to drop charges sparked outrage across the country, with considerable evidence indicating that Smollett filed a false police report in order to secure an increase on his salary on the FOX show Empire. Smollett won the award in 2017.

The real Smollett had been charged for allegedly orchestrating a racial and homophobic assault against himself, then lying repeatedly about it to authorities.
