    Default Rock: "Only Gays Watch Oscars"

    HOST CHRIS ROCK SHOCK: ONLY GAYS WATCH OSCARS

    ACADEMY MEMBERS ALARMED OVER CHOICE OF COMIC

    **Exclusive**

    Veteran members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences have grown concerned over the choice of Chris Rock as host of this month's awards show, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

    Concern deepened after Rock claimed only gays watch the Oscars!

    "I never watched the Oscars. Come on, it's a fashion show," Rock recently declared.

    "What straight black man sits there and watches the Oscars? Show me one!"

    Rock added: "Awards for art are f---ing idiotic."

    MORE

    Academy members have privately called for Chris Rock to be removed as host, sources claim, fearing Rock may "tarnish" the reputation of the Academy.

    "Simply put, this is a disgrace," one veteran Hollywood mogul, who asked not to be identified, said from Los Angeles.

    "This guy is out there saying 'awards for art are f---ing idiotic' and he is hosting the show produced by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences? I guess the joke is on us!"

    One nominated actress questions whether producer Gil Cates was even aware that Rock has "never watched the Oscars."

    Other unpublicized comments made by Rock threaten to throw the scheduled Feb. 27 broadcast into complete chaos.

    During a recent hate-filled rant, Rock imitated a White House press briefing:

    "Mr. President, what about gay marriage? 'F**k them faggots,'" Rock said of Bush.

    What will Rock be wearing to the show?

    "Nothing against people who aren't straight, but what straight guy that you know cares? Who gives a f---?" Rock explained.

    Dammit! If I would have known he made those comments sooner, I would have watched just to see if he actually did put the show into utter chaos. I love watching live train wrecks but with all the damn censorship these days, they would have "mysteriously" had technical difficulties...
