Chris Rock rarely minces words especially when he has a huge platform to be heard.
While presenting at the NAACP Image Awards, he was advised by producers that no Jussie Smollett jokes were allowed.
Chris being Chris apparently said “two tears in a bucket…” and went for broke!
The comedian called the “Empire” star, who many people still believe lied about being attacked in Chicago, a “waste of light skin and curly hair.”
Chris Rock said:
They said no Jussie Smollett jokes…I know. What a waste of light skin. You know what I could do with that light skin? That curly hair? My career would be outta here! I’d be f*cking running Hollywood!
What the hell was he thinking? From now on…you’re ‘Jessie’ from now on, you don’t get the ‘u’ no more. That ‘u’ was respect, you ain’t getting no respect from me.
After presenting an award to the cast of “Black-ish,” Yara Shahidi let Chris and everyone else know – she stands with Jussie!
