performed himself. An outdated video of the famend comic together with Ricky Gervais and Louis C.Okay. fortunately utilizing the N-word went viral on the Internets final night time (Dec. 22) and individuals are furious Rock let the white guys cook dinner.
The clip is from 2011’s Talking Funny on HBO. Louis C.Okay. made a joke about how white individuals are wealthy all their lives, however when a Black man will get wealthy it’s “countdown to when he’s poor once more.”
The crack evoked laughs from everybody, with Rock including C.Okay. is “the blackest white man I f*cking know.” He added, “All the destructive issues we take into consideration Black folks, this f*cker…”
But earlier than Rock might end the sentence, C.Okay. jumped in and mentioned, “You’re saying I’m a n*gger?”
Rock responded emphatically, “Yes, you’re the n*ggerest white man I’ve ever…ugh…”
Ricky Gervais was cracking up like a schoolboy whereas Seinfeld was the one one displaying any concern. After some awkward, infuriating and continued rationalizing by C.Okay. for his use of slur, Seinfeld added, “You’ve discovered the humor of it. I haven’t, nor do I search it.”
Just peep how Louis C.Okay. simply so casually says the N-word—and with the laborious “E.R.,” not the “n*gga” nuance some prefer to put forth as an excuse.
Needless to say, Twitter goes in, with some even demanding Rock be traded for Seinfeld ( at all, even when he’s homies with Wale). While Rock is getting the lion’s share of the criticism, let’s not act like the meat isn’t with Louis C.Okay. and Ricky Gervais. C.Okay. was already trash, and now Ricky Gervais can chill with him within the dumpster, too.
It’s simply that Rock, whose comedy is understood for its sharpness on race, left folks disillusioned when he giggled as two white guys used the N-word, whereas Seinfeld was the one grownup to chide them for his or her, ya know, racism.
Peep among the reactions within the gallery.
