Seth Rogen made a dig at singer Chris Brown and Brett Ratner, who was once set to produce the Academy Awards ceremony but pushed to quit after he used a homophobic slur in front of reporters.
While hosting the Independent Spirit Awards Saturday, Rogen said of the Rush Hour and Tower Heist director, "Without awards season we wouldn't know what a horrible bigot Brett Ratner is."
He added, "I honestly bet that Brett Ratner really wished he was organizing the Grammys because they seem much more forgiving than the Oscars altogether. You say a few hateful things, they don't let you within a few hundred yards of the Oscars. You can literally beat the shit out of a nominee and they'll ask you to perform twice at the Grammys."
