Seth MacFarlane made several ill-advised decisions when he hosted the Oscars in 2013, but a joke about Chris Brown’s assault on Rihanna in 2009 was among the most controversial. The host described Best Picture nominee Django Unchained as "the story of a man fighting to get back his woman, who's been subjected to unthinkable violence," adding: "Or as Chris Brown and Rihanna call it, a date movie." The reference drew audible gasps from the audience.
