The basketball star said he was "tired" of it being "cool" to bash Asians.

Charlotte Hornets star Jeremy Lin took to Twitter to criticize Oscars host Chris Rock for the Asian jokes during Sunday's ceremony. 

Lin vented his frustration telling his 1.51 million followers that he was "tired of it being 'cool' and 'OK' to bash Asians." Lin also asked the question "when is this going to change?"

The politics of race dominated the 88th Academy Awards, with Rock skewering "Hollywood racism" during his opening monologue and presenters such as Sacha Baron Cohen making pointed barbs at the issue throughout the show.
