Chris Rock Is Getting Dragged On Twitter For Calling Louis C.K. A ‘N*****ish White Man’ In Resurfaced Interview

Apparently, he gave his fellow comedian a pass to use the word.

Just when you thought Travis Scott was going to take home the Oops, I Shouldn’t Have Said That Years Ago Award for December 22, Chris Rock just slid in to give him a run for his money.

  • Via Twitter, a video clip from 2011 surfaced of Rock and fellow comedians Louis C.K., Jerry Seinfeld and Ricky Gervais discussing comedy. The segment is from the HBO film Talking Funny and gets uncomfortable really quickly.

    The clip begins with CR referring to C.K. as “the blackest white guy I f***ing now. And all the negative things you think about black people, this f***er…” C.K. then ratchets it all up and replies, “You’re saying I’m a n****r?”

    “Yes, you are the n*****est f***ing white man, I have ever…”, Rock says back with C.K. and Gervais laughing hysterically. Seinfeld, however, doesn’t seem too comfortable.

  • “I don’t think he can do that,” Seinfeld interjects. “I don’t think he has those qualities.” Rock then dismisses Seinfeld’s assertions and reminds him he worked with C.K. for the old Chris Rock Show in the 1990s and the movie Pootie Tang.

    Gervais goes on to use the n-word himself and all hell breaks loose.

  • Twitter, of course, lost it

  • While this video may be bad for Chris Rock and his chances of ever again being invited to a cookout, it’s particularly bad for Louis C.K., who’s been under fire ever since he was accused of sexual misconduct by numerous women.

    This was bad from all angles. Chris Rock, do better bub.
