Chris Rock told his audience on Sunday night in Phoenix that he turned down an offer to host the 2023 Oscars.

He said going back would be like returning to the scene of a crime.  He brought up the O.J. Simpson trial as an example.

He said it’d be like asking Nicole Brown Simpson to go back to the restaurant that she left a pair of sunglasses at the night she was stabbed to death.

Chris also said he’s refused an offer to do a Super Bowl commercial.  But didn’t say for what company.
