Chris Rock Did Not Raise $65k For Girl Scout Troops At Oscars
According to TMZ, the host helped the young girls sell around 500 boxes of cookies at $5 a pop. That comes to only $2,500.
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.
