Tina Fey doesn’t want your heavy-handed speeches on the cultural issues weighing heavily on our’s and Hollywood’s shoulders, oh no. The Queen of Comedy can see right through it, your bleeding heart attempt at kickstarting societal change. You’re all over the place, you see. There’s probably a better place to crusade for your cause of choice, instead of an awards ceremony where multi-millionaires attempt to gain validation via the tastes of other millionaires through a relatively arbitrary voting process. She made her thoughts known in a rant on Howard Stern.

First up on Fey’s Menu O’ Judgement was Chris Rock’s opening monologue, which pushed back against the utter lack of diversity at this year’s Oscars. She was pleased.

“I thought his monologue was fantastic. That’s the tricky thing about shows like that – you don’t get a dress rehearsal. You don’t get that opportunity.

Then she explained that you wanted Chris Rock, you got Chris Rock. (And anyone who thought Chris Rock wouldn’t be Chris Rock obviously doesn’t know Chris Rock.)

“This is what you ordered – you wanted this.”
