Although buzz from last night's Oscar ceremony is still clouding viewer's minds, another award show sparked some hype this weekend. At this past Saturday's Independent Spirit Awards, comedian Seth Rogen took a jab at R&B singer Chris Brown.

You saw a few hateful things, they don't let you within a few hundred yards of the Oscars, Rogen said at the awards ceremony, referring to Oscar producer Brett Ratner being fired over offensive gay comments. You can literally beat the sh-t out of a nominee and they'll ask you to perform twice at the Grammys.

The crowd, which offered the occasional chuckle to Rogen's routine, erupted in a mix of shock and encouragement after the Judd Apatow actor's comment. The Twitter community seemed to react similarly.

How about Seth Rogen for Oscar host-funny AND he takes on domestic violence with the Chris Brown situation. Love, wrote one user.

What Seth Rogen said about Chris Brown #SoMuchLove, tweeted another.

Brown stirred controversy when he performed twice at this year's Grammy Awards ceremony, just three years after abusing then-girlfriend and pop sensation Rihanna.
