On “The Tony Kornheiser Show” on ESPN 980 AM in Washington, D.C. on Monday, ESPN “Pardon the Interruption” co-host Michael Wilbon said Seth MacFarlane was only allowed to host the Oscars because the Academy is tired of blacks.
“I don’t like him,” Wilbon said. “Why is he there? He’s not worthy of being there. … They got tired of famous black people, so they got to get a white guy — affirmative action Academy Awards host? Is that what this is about? Really?”
The last black Oscars hosts were Chris Rock in 2005 and Whoopi Goldberg in 2001.
