One of Oscars host Chris Rock's jokes did not sit well with all viewers.
The comedian launched into a skit when he introduced the PricewaterhouseCoopers accountants who count the Oscar votes. Instead of PWC representatives, Rock introduced three young kids with Asian and Jewish sounding names.
"If anybody’s upset about that joke, just tweet about it on your phone that was also made by these kids," Rock joked afterward.
And some viewers criticized the joke online.
Umm, no @chrisrock. Using little Asian kids to joke about math stereotypes and child labor isn't funny.

How unnecessary to make fun of Asians on the #Oscars when Hollywood isn't even evolved enough to give Asians Asian-specific roles yet.
