The heat is on for Chris Rock!

Celebs and entertainers from around the industry are putting pressure on him NOT to host the Oscars in February due to a lack of non-white nominees in major acting categories!

This all comes after actress Jada Pinkett Smith announced she was going to boycott the Academy Awards, joining filmmaker Spike Lee who earlier made HIS decision not to support the Academy in any way!

Rock himself took a shot at the award show over the weekend, but joking about it isn't enough for some.

Rapper 50 Cent is now specifically calling on Rock to step away from the ceremony!

In an Instagram post on Tuesday morning, the Get Rich Or Die Tryin' rapper — who has come under his own heavy IG controversy recently — calls out the comedian (below):

Chris please do not do the oscars awards. You mean a lot man, don't do it. Please 🙏🏿A photo posted by 50 Cent (@50cent) on Jan 19, 2016 at 5:28am PST

Others, like TODAY show host Matt Lauer, have argued the opposite — that Rock should stay on as the host:

"Don't you think it would be better for him to stick it out and do the hosting? Because if he pulls out, it's a big story for one day. If he decides to host, there's all that anticipation and everything he says on that stage gets played over and over again and he can make a real difference."

Hmm… maybe.

What do U think about the #OscarsSoWhite controversy — should Rock give up hosting the show??
