Comedian Chris Rock has never has been one to hold his tongue.
And now the funny-man’s quick-witted observation has landed him in social network uproar. In observation of Independence day, Chris Rock tweeted:
“Happy white peoples independence day the slaves weren’t free but I’m sure they enjoyed fireworks.”
Though many of Rock’s fans laughed at the remark, some conservative fans were offended and made their displeasure known online.
Not one to back down, Chris Rock has balked at the thought of apologizing for the joking tweet. Rock has not deleted the controversial tweet and doesn’t seem to be making any strides on changing his opinion.
Did he go overboard with his comment – or are people just too uptight?
