CHRIS ROCK was a presenter at the"NAACP Image Awards"on Saturday . . . and they told him not to tell any JUSSIE SMOLLETT jokes. But that's not how Rock rolls.
Rock was presenting the award for Outstanding Comedy Series. "Black-ish"ended up winning, and when the cast came up onstage, 19-year-old star YARA SHAHIDI said, quote, "I stand with Jussie."
Jussie was up for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama, but he lost, interestingly enough, to a JESSE...JESSE WILLIAMS from"Grey's Anatomy".
