After lots of preemptive thinkpieces, Chris Rock finally unleashed his Oscars monologue—and yes, he took on #OscarsSoWhite in a powerful, full-throated, and funny way, gifting the world with the phrase "Sorority Racist."
Twitter comedians, already mostly onboard, reached near-consensus with regards to their assessment of Rock's monologue.
As someone too young to remember Carlin & Pryor, Chris Rock is the most important comedian of my lifetime. He killed it tonight. #Oscars— Matt Goldich (@MattGoldich) February 29, 2016
Love that Chris Rock berated a room full of white people for being racist before they celebrate themselves for three hours #Oscars— Mike Lawrence (@TheMikeLawrence) February 29, 2016
