Jo Koy Goes Off Script During Controversial Opening Monologue At 2024 Golden Globes: ‘Yo, Shut Up!’

Jo Koy got the 2024 Golden Globes off to a bit of a bumpy start, going off script as some of his jokes were met with not-so-enthusiastic reactions. The night’s host aimed zingers at the year’s biggest TV shows and films, including “Oppenheimer” and “Barbie.” After a “Barbie” joke fell flat, he told the crowd, “Yo, I got the gig 10 days ago! You want a perfect monologue? Yo, shut up! You’re kidding me, right? Slow down – I wrote some of these, and you’re the laughing at.”
