Chris Rock’s Asian Math Joke Doesn’t Add Up For Everyone

February 29, 2016 – In a night that was clearly intended to be as much about diversity as it was movies, the 88th Annual Academy Awards took an awkward left turn when host Chris Rock made a joke hinging on the stereotype that all Asians are good at math. The comedian introduced the accountants from PricewaterhouseCoopers with “They sent us their most dedicated, accurate and hard working representatives. Please welcome Ming Zhu, Bao Ling and David Moskowitz.” And out came three young Asian children. Rock joked:

“If anybody’s upset about that joke, just tweet about it on your phone that was also made by these kids.”

And tweet they did:


The joke seemed at odd’s with Rock’s own agenda and the theme of the entire show. Best Director winner Alejandro Iñárritu said in his acceptance speech:

“What a great opportunity to our generation, to really liberate yourself from all prejudice and this tribal thinking and make sure for once and forever that the color of skin becomes as irrelevant as the length of our hair.”
