Brian Pedaci wrote: “Gender-swap that Regina Hall bit and it’d have been super-creepy and inappropriate. Actually, it was anyway. #Oscars.”

Rob J Spain added: “Sooo imagine if Jason Momoa and Josh Brolin gave Regina Hall a “covid pat down” as a part of an Oscars skit.

“Imagine the outrage. Sexism goes both ways folks. That was not cool. Not cool at all. That whole sketch was cringey.#Oscars” (sic)”

Keith Lyle wrote: “This bit Regina Hall is doing on the #Oscars is actually sexual harassment.

“I know a woman is doing it, and there’s irony, which is a 2nd layer of comedy. But it’s probably not the best bit to do in this environment. I’m sure there will be a backlash about it.”

However, others were supportive of the star, saying she was smashing her hosting gig.

Jarett Wieselman added: “Regina Hall has low-key been one of the funniest women in Hollywood for nearly 25 years.

“She’s absolutely killing her #Oscars co-hosting gig.”

Saeed Jones penned: “Regina Hall’s ‘Covid test’ bit is easily the funniest thing an #Oscars host had done in a decade.”

Matt Neglia wrote: “Regina Hall making us all laugh so hard with this bit #Oscars.”

Regina is one of three hosts at the glamourous awards.

She’s joined on stage by Amy Schumer and Wanda Sykes.

The trio opened the show with a hilarious monologue, calling out some of the nominees.
