    He used the platform to highlight the recent controversy surrounding Roseanne Barr.

    Barr, the star of ABC's popular Roseanne revival, posted a racist tweet that compared Obama administration official Valerie Jarrett to a monkey. ABC cancelled Roseanne the same day.

    It got a big "ooo" from the audience, especially from his Black Panther co-star, Chadwick Boseman, who won Best Hero earlier in the night.

    Jordan also thanked all the fans, and jokingly requested they stop coming up to Boseman and asking him to strike the highly-memed "Wakanda Forever" pose.
