If you are the richest man on the planet, then you have got to be prepared for being made fun of anywhere you go, especially at award ceremonies.

Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon  (AMZN) , seemed ready for that as he was roasted by Chris Rock and Steve Martin at the Oscars on Sunday night.

As a matter of fact, he appeared to be enjoying being made fun of.

As Rock and Martin were doing the monologue, Martin made sure he was heard and seen by Bezos.

"Jeff Bezos is here!" Rock started his jab, which was followed by Martin's sarcastic remarks, " Wow, great actor."

Rock wouldn't let go Bezos easily without making fun of his wealth and his divorce. His divorce was one of the most talked about news story of 2019.

"He's got cash. When he writes a check, the bank bounces," Rock said. "Like, Jeff Bezos is so rich, he got divorced and he's still the richest man in the world."

"He saw Marriage Story and thought it was a comedy," he added.

As they were wrapping up Bezos' roast, Rock asked Martin if he had anything to add about Bezos.

“No, I like getting my packages on time,” Martin responded.
