Chris Rock can, and should, joke about whoever he desires — specifically after being slapped by Will Smith — even if some feel it’s at Jada Pinkett Smith‘s cost … according to 2 fellow comics.
We talked to Bill Bellamy and Jeff Dye Tuesday on “TMZ Live,” and both safeguarded CR’s right to joke about the sitch, even if he did so rather mercilessly throughout his most current Netflix unique … which is now drawing the ire of some Black ladies.
Candace McDuffie, a senior author for The Root, presumed as to recommend Chris really had the slap coming to him after years of jokes she feels targeted Black ladies.
That’s not how Bill and Jeff feel about it, though … they’re directly on Chris’ side, with BB informing us the man utilized his own platform and imagination to address it as finest he could, without violence.
Plus, there’s the monetary advantage — Netflix paid a considerable amount for his “Selective Outrage” unique.
But, even on the problem of whether Chris has it out for Jada and/or Black ladies … Bill states he does not think that to hold true. He states Chris takes chance ats everybody, and in some cases specific groups may capture a roaming.
Jeff Ross Says Chris Rock Took Will Smith Down with His Jokes, Not Fists
It’s absolutely nothing individual, simply business of being amusing … that’s Bill’s point of view anyhow.
Now, Jeff — who’s hosting our brand-new video game program, “Who the Bleep Is That?” — was a bit more powerful in his repudiation of recommending Chris deserved what he got … stating such a concept is outrageous, and disavowing the concept of anything or anybody being off-limits in funny.
He’s got a couple of more extreme words about the matter … and you can inform he’s fired up. BTW, Jeff brings this exact same energy as the host of ‘WTBIT’ — which is airing now on FOX.
