Chris Rock presented an award at the NAACP Awards over the weekend, and despite being told not to make any jokes about Jussie Smollett - Rock could not contain himself and delivered a brief but effective roast of the 'Empire star.'

Smollett was actually was nominated for an NAACP Image Award but lost out to Jesse Williams. We're not sure whether Smollett should be handed an Image Award until all this legal mess is cleared up anyway.

"They said no Jussie Smollett jokes. Yeah, I know, I know. What a waste of light skin. You know what I could do with that light skin? That curly hair? My career would be outta here! I'd be f*cking running Hollywood," he then paused to giggle before adding - "What the hell was he thinking? From now on ... you're 'Jessie' from now on, you don't get the 'u' no more. That 'u' was respect, you ain't getting no respect from me."

Many then took to Twitter to clown Rock who had previously admitted that he allows his fellow white comedians to use the n-word in his presence.

Did Chris Rock go too far?
