In his new show, comedian Chris Rock also works on Duchess Meghan and makes it clear what he thinks of the racism allegations against the British royal family. But the royals also get their fat off.
Chris Rock is back and dishing it out. In his new Netflix show "Chris Rock: Selective Outrage", the US comedian takes on Duchess Meghan, among others.
Prince Harry's wife had accused the British royal family of racism. "Oh dear, they're all so racist," teases Rock. "They actually wanted to know what skin color their baby would have. But that has nothing to do with racism. Black people asked themselves exactly the same question."
Rock shows little understanding for Meghan's allegations. "Some of the crap she went through wasn't racism. It was just a little bit of in-law crap," says the comedian on his stage show. "I know her dilemma: A black girl trying to be accepted by her white in-laws. It's tough." It's even harder for white girls trying to be accepted by their black in-laws.
But Rock also fires against the Royals. He refers to an appearance by Meghan on Oprah Winfrey's show, where the Duchess had made allegations of racism against the royal family public. "Didn't you Google those assholes?" asks Rock. "They are the origin of the racists. They invented colonialism. They invested in slavery like in 'The Lion King'."
Finally, Rock has ironic advice for all Black people. "If you're Black and you want your in-laws to embrace you with open arms, they should have married one of the Kardashians, they all take."
