Chris Tucker disappointed a lot of fans on Sunday night with what’s being described as a lackadaisical job hosting the BET Awards show. The comedian was at best, chuckle funny, but never reached the level of hilarity one would expect from the Friday star.
Outside of a Michael Jackson impersonation, Tucker failed to live up to expectations and those watching the show let him have it on Twitter.
- “D*mn, Chris Tucker did horrible hosting the awards,” one fan wrote.
- “Also, let it be known that if I wanted to see Chris Tucker’s standup before this show, well now I don’t. #OppositeEffect,” another Twitter user shared.
- “Chris Tucker left his humor in rehab!” a viewer joked.
- “Anybody got the details on where they holding the memorial for Chris Tucker’s comedy career? I was gonna airbrush a couple of tees,” a fan added.
After being hammered, one of Chris’ peers, comedian Mike Epps, came to the star’s defense, tweeting:
“Respect to Chris Tucker it’s hard to do live TV and hosting an award TV show.
True story, but we’re sure Tucker was paid handsomely to do more than an average job hosting. Did you watch the show? What did you think?
