Los Angeles: Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais has urged actor Chris Rock to do some "serious damage" when he hosts the upcoming 88th Academy Awards.
Rock, 50, is reportedly under pressure to boycott the Oscars after the Academy was slammed for a lack of diversity in the nomination list for next month's ceremony, but the Golden Globes host has urged Rock to use the live platform to his advantage, reports
Gervais posted on Twitter: “If I were @chrisrock, I wouldn't be considering boycotting The Oscars. I'd be thinking 'this s**t is live. I can do some serious damage'."
