The people at the folks at the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People told presenter Chris Rock not to do any Jussie Smollett jokes during his routine.
He didn't listen.
Smollett was nominated -- but lost -- for best supporting actor in a television drama for his role as Jamal Lyon on the Fox series. He was edged out by "Grey's Anatomy" star Jesse Williams.
Smollett has been nominated for the award four years in a row and won in 2017.
