During last night's Oscars ceremony, Chris Rock brought three Asian-American children onstage, introducing them as "PricewaterhouseCoopers accountants."
The joke alluded to the stereotype of Asian people being good at math. Rock followed with a joke about child labor: "If anybody's upset about that joke just tweet about it on your phone, which was also made by these kids."
Many Twitter users expressed their distaste at Rock's joke, citing his previous pledge to make this year's Oscars ceremony about diversity.
Others used the joke to point out the continued lack of representation of Asian nominees.
There has also been backlash against Sacha Baron Cohen and a joke he made about Asian people.
