Comedians Deon Cole and D.L. Hughley recently posted video apologies to Chris Rock for not having empathy for what he must be going through.
Deon Cole apologized for posting a meme about the incident that he realized in retrospect was in bad taste.
I just want to say I apologize to Chris Rock.
I posted some dumb a** meme and sh*t without even thinking.
You know, I apologize for that. Not knowing and not thinking what that man is going through.
I was listening to DL Hughley, and he right.
Almost sixty year old man got slapped in front of millions of people, and he’s a comedian brother of ours.
We need to, like, be behind him. He’s inspired every comedian that’s performing right now.
Some form or fashion Chris Rock has inspired you…
