The 51-year-old comedian then called a group of seemingly separate actors – Simu Liu, Bradley Cooper, Tyler Perry and Timothée Chalamet – onto the stage.

“I don’t want any of you to worry. It will be a typical rapid COVID test. You come backstage, take off your mask if you have one, and your clothes…” she joked to the men, specifying that she would have to “wipe the back of your mouth with my tongue” and “do another freak.” Stuff.”

She also named Jacob Elordi, teased that he would need a “deep PCR test” and noted that the 24-year-old Australian actor is “of legal age” despite playing a high school boy in his breakout role in Euphoria played.

After taking her lineup of single stars backstage, Hall continued her controversial skit by giving a suggestive, full-body “COVID scan” to the next two hosts, Josh Brolin and new single Jason Mamoa.

“You know what? I don’t think that’s a thing,” Brolin said after being felt awkwardly.

The men seemed to accept the joke or engaged in the joke, but some celebrities in the audience seemed to be laughing uncomfortably. Lupita Nyong’o, Jake Gyllenhaal, Jessica Chastain and Mila Kunis were all shown giggling, but Ashton Kutcher and others seemed noticeably surprised by the routine.

During Smith’s onstage altercation with Rock caused a flood of headlines and seemed to overshadow Hall’s skits, many viewers took to social media to express their unease about her jokes.

“I thought sexist jokes were banned!” a tweeter noticedwhile another offered, “I don’t appreciate double standards. Not everyone deserves respect.”

“If this ‘gag’ was reversed, it wouldn’t be funny, it would be scary,” another online critic wrote. “Not good taste.” Others repeated that feeling: “Honestly, double standards must stop, she made me madly uncomfortable, imagine how they felt.”

However, not everyone was offended by Hall’s jokes and some fans still flooded social media with love and laughter for the comedian.

Drama aside, the 2022 Oscars should be a night of unity as a producer Will Packer led the first all-black production teamand Schumer, Sykes and Hall made history as the first all-female team to host the event with historic victories.
