Social Media Reacts To Jerrod Carmichael Hosting The Golden Globes

Jerrod Carmichael hosting the Golden Globe Awards

The Golden Globes returned to television on Tuesday January 10th.  The 80th Annual award show was hosted by comedian Jerrod Carmichael, whose brand of comedy isn’t always easy to digest, but he had a successful SNL hosting gig last year, so this is the next level.  Wasn’t long into his opening monologue that they might have realized that they made a mistake.  But their 6 minutes of discomfort was social media’s gain.

Jerrod Carmichael, who was born in Winston-Salem, North Carolina and graduated high school in Kernersville, was the first Black person to host The Golden Globes.

He revealed that he was being paid $500k to host the show, but made it clear that he knew that he was only going to be hosting because he was Black.  The Hollywood Foreign Press Association puts on The Golden Globes and Jerrod noted that he was the first Black host in 80 years.

Here’s a look at the opening monologue if you missed it.

The crowd was visibly confused by the opening set and uncomfortable is the least you can say to describe the 6 minutes.
