Chris Rock posted a cryptic tweet ahead of the Oscars on Sunday. 

Rock, who will be hosting the annual awards show, wrote, ” See you Sunday… #blackout #oscars,” along with a video of television static.

Oscars producer Reginald Hudlin previously said that Rock is going to pull no punches when hosting this year amid the #OscarsSoWhite controversy. “Chris is hard at work,” Hudlin said. “He and his writing staff locked themselves in a room.” Hudlin went on to say that Rock declared, “I’m throwing out the show I wrote and writing a new show.”

The producer says he believes that Rock will be able to navigate the controversy, saying that the comedian is “thorough.” “He’s that brilliant, and I have 1,000 percent confidence that he will deliver something that people will be talking about for weeks,” he said.
