Funny-man Chris Rock is not one to play with – especially when it comes to his political views. In an explosive video recently released, the comedian/actor apparently became irate with a camera when conservative writer Jason Mattera tried to ensnare the actor with a question about his Tea Party remarks in Esquire Magazine last year.
The altercation seen below happened at the Sundance Film Festival with the video footage of the incident just now hitting the internet.
The comedian had stirred up some conservative backlash in an Esquire Magazine interview when he told the magazine:
“When I see the Tea Party and all this stuff, it actually feels like racism’s almost over. Because this is the last — this is the act up before the sleep. They’re going crazy. They’re insane.”
When Mattera asked Chris Rock about those comments, Chris attempted walk away but was cornered in and essentially lunged at the camera to get free.
Rock’s camp says their lawyers are currently investigating the video and have no comment at this time. Check out the video below.
