Recently Actor and comedian, Chris Rock was dragged for criticizing the Nancy Pelosi and the democratic party for prioritizing President Trump‘s impeachment over the mishandling and spread of the COVID-19 virus. In a new interview, Chris sits down with the New York times to express his opinion and frustrations.
The comedian stated that the Democrats should have been more attentive on the pandemic because the President wasn’t ever going to get impeached.
He continued saying: “You let the pandemic come in. Yes, we can blame Trump, but he’s really the five-year-old.”
Rock conveyed his frustrations by comparing the president to the main character in the 1987 film, The Last Emperor.
“Did you ever see that movie, The Last Emperor? The emperor of China is this 5-year-old kid.”
He explained, “it’s all of the Democrats’ fault. Because you knew that the emperor was five years old.”
Unfortunately, these remarks didn’t sit too kindly to readers, many dragging the actor on social media calling him an uncle Tom.
During the interview, Rock also addressed Jimmy Fallon’s recent blackface fiasco. The actor claimed that Fallon didn’t mean anything by his actions and that he did not take his joke heart.
He noted, “Hey, man, I’m friends with Jimmy, he’s a great guy.”
