At the 2016 Oscars, host Chris Rock attacked the lack of diversity in the nominations as part of his opening monologue. Rock also made countless “Hollywood is racist” jokes throughout the show to address the #OscarsSoWhite controversy, but there was one bit that many felt didn't quite strike the right tone.

At one point in the show, Chris Rock presented the PricewaterhouseCoopers "representatives" who were in charge of counting the Oscar votes. However, instead of introducing the actual representatives, he welcomed three Asian children on stage. “They sent us their most dedicated, accurate and hard working representatives,” Rock said. “Please welcome Ming Zhu, Bao Ling, and David Moskowitz.”
