I like Chris Rock sometimes and then it’s times like this when I don’t, in a bid for an Oscar Nomination Chris Rock shades his own mother and Black women in general so he can get votes.
Chris Rock was speaking at the Variety Creative Impact Awards when he began campaigning for an Oscar for his latest comedy Top Five. Of course he made his mother and black women the butt of his jokes…
Chris told the crowd of influential Academy Award voters,
“Comedies never get nominated. So I’m going to blatantly appeal to the voters. February 22 is my mother’s birthday. 70th birthday. If I’m nominated, I will take her to the Oscars. If not, I will take her to Fatburger. We don’t need another Black woman at Fatburger. So please vote for me.”
