Chris Rock: Fans rage at comedian for ‘putting down black women’

Chris Rock’s fans are furious with him for taking pictures of Jada Pinkett Smith and Meghan Markle in a live set for Netflix titled Selective outrage.

On Saturday (March 4), the 58-year-old comedian performed a live set for the streaming giant in which he roasted Will Smith for beating him at the Oscars in March 2022, blaming Jada Pinkett Smith for starting this “s** *,” ” and joked about Meghan Markle’s accusations of racism against the royal family.

Speaking of Pinkett Smith, Rock claimed she tried to force him to stop hosting the 2016 Academy Awards because her husband didn’t get a Best Actor nomination.

That year, Smith was considered a nominee for Concussionbut he ultimately failed to make the list.

“Many years ago, my wife told me to quit the Oscars. I shouldn’t be hosting because her husband wasn’t nominated for Concussion. And then he gives me a concussion,” Rock joked. He said The girls’ trip star “started this whole s***”.

In the same set, Rock also covered Markle’s April 2021 interview with Oprah Winfrey.

In the interview, Markle and Prince Harry said that while at Buckingham Palace, “concerns” were raised about “how dark” the baby’s skin might be before Archie was born.

Rock questioned the belief that Markle was a victim of racism, saying she was only dealing with “sister-in-law’s ***”.


Soon after the live broadcast, many fans began calling out Rock for his “rude” statements.

“Chris Rock called Jada Pinkett Smith ab*tch and said Meghan Markle played the race card,” attorney Exavier Pope wrote. “To crack down on black women. Clownery.”

Another person added: “America has woken up to the scam. Look at this room of black people laughing at Meghan Markle. First it was @SouthPark . Now Chris Rock has destroyed Meghan Markle.”

One person wrote: “It doesn’t matter your color if you’re a famous black woman Chris Rock will drag you for giggles. He’s not for the culture because he had endless things to do for laughs and chose to be mean to Meghan in the guise of parody. No, you mean it, Chris.”

“So Chris Rock’s weak** decided to go in on Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, continuing his already 20 plus years of attacking Jada,” one person wrote.

Another added: “Chris Rock you are not funny. The Meghan Markle hype has to stop. Her name is so lucrative they forget she is human.”

The independent has contacted Rock’s representatives for comment.

During his set, Rock also talked about Smith and his wife’s marital problems.

“Will Smith practices selective outrage. Because everybody knows what the hell happened,” Rock said in an extended riff near the end of the 70-minute special.

Rock also said he was “not a victim”.

“But I’m not a victim baby. You will never see me crying on Oprah or Gayle, he said. “Never gonna happen. I took that punch like Paquiao,” he said, referring to former professional boxer Manny Pacquiao.
