Jimmy Kimmel reveals which celeb wore ‘Cocaine Bear’ costume at the Oscars

Oscars 2023 host Jimmy Kimmel revealed who was in the cocaine bear costume at the Oscars on Sunday night.

The bear joined director Elizabeth Banks onstage during a presentation at the 2023 Oscars at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood.

Fans on social media couldn’t help but wonder who was wearing the costume and a guessing game ensued.

Jimmy Kimmel has finally revealed the answer.

“He was a celebrity, it was true…and that celebrity was DJ Jazzy Jeff!” he said.

“And that’s not a lie. This is absolutely true and I would like everyone to point it out.

Inspired by a True Story cocaine bear follows a 500 pound black bear after consuming a large amount of cocaine and goes on a rampage, running out, cops, tourists and hikers.

Earlier, speaking to People less than two weeks away from this year’s Oscars, Kimmel praised Rock for his onstage behavior in 2022.

“It’s still shocking that this happened,” he said.

“(And) having it happen at the Oscars magnifies it about a million times…I think that’s something that everyone regrets and that we’re going to move past.

“One day it will be looked at the same way as this guy running around naked on stage: a weird moment that we’ve all talked about and hope to learn from.”
