OSCARS GIRL SCOUT SKIT $65K NOT RAISED, IT WAS ANOTHER OF CHRIS ROCK’S JOKES
Chris Rock made it look like his battle cry raised a fortune for the Girl Scouts … sadly, it did not.
A Girl Scout rep tells us they sold around 500 boxes of cookies at $5 a pop. That comes to $2,500 … far short of the Oscar tote board revealing a grand total of $65,243.
A rep for the Scouts tells us the $65k number was just a joke … for the skit.
It’s possible some of the audience members ordered boxes that would be delivered at a future date.
And it looked like the beneficiaries of the loot were the troop in which his daughters — Lola and Zahra — are members. Turns out the money is going to a different troop … the one based in Inglewood, CA. His daughters are members of a New York-based Girl Scouts troop.
Nonetheless … still a good night’s work for the Girl Scouts.
