Chris Rock, 50, is reportedly under pressure to boycott the Oscars after the Academy was slammed for a lack of diversity in the nomination list for next month's ceremony, but the Golden Globes host has urged Rock to use the live platform to his advantage, reports

Gervais posted on Twitter: "If I were @chrisrock, I wouldn't be considering boycotting The Oscars. I'd be thinking 'this s**t is live. I can do some serious damage'."

His tweet comes after it was revealed that director Spike Lee and actress Jada Pinkett Smith have declined their invites to attend the ceremony.
