Reneé Rapp was less than happy about the performance Jo Koy gave at the Golden Globes.
This prompted Rapp to reveal that she wasn’t the biggest fan of the monologue.
“My outs… First is the man that yelled at me this morning at 8 a.m. and told me to smile. Go to hell,” Rapp said. “And also my out was the man that was making a bunch of jokes about women last night at the Golden Globes.”
The actress was seemingly referring to Koy, 52, who made a joke about Barbie being “based on a plastic doll with big boobies” among some other jokes that did not land with some of the talent in the room and across the globe.
Taylor Swift also did not seem amused at some of the jokes like even the Golden Globes having ‘fewer camera shots’ of herself than an NFL game. He played off a lot of the jokes that didn’t sit well with some of the audience claiming he ‘only got the gig ten days ago.’
The comedian received mixed reviews online and on social media, with many calling the jokes ‘sexist.’
Users online also applauded Rapp for bringing up the moment.
One commenter wrote, “Renee calling out the sexist jokes at the golden globes when they had Barbie winning awards is the best part of this ,” while another said, “jo koy u done p—– off regina mf george count ur days buddy.”
Others praised Rapp for “keeping it real as always” and many called for others to “stan” her for “calling out” the comedian.
However, some others, like Whoopi Goldberg defended the comedian noting that “these hosting gigs are brutal.” She added, “If you don’t know the room, if you’ve not been in these rooms before, and you’re sort of thrust out there, it’s hit or miss… but I do know [Koy’s] as good as it gets when it comes to stand-up.”
Despite some of the social media backlash, Koy told PEOPLE that he would “love to” host the award show again if he had more time to prepare, “with five months, not nine days.”
He noted that the crowd was “great” overall said, “We’re back. Hollywood was closed. It’s back open again. Let’s just celebrate. They’re eating, drinking, having a good time. 150 countries were watching. They saw how much fun we had.”
