Chris Rock Has A Controversial Opinion About The Obamas’ Netflix Deal

The comedian issued a warning to the former First Couple.

Published June 8, 2018

Fans of former first couple Barack and Michelle Obama were thrilled when news broke that they'd be producing several Netflix series. One longtime fan of the couple isn't completely sold on their new deal, though.

Comedian and actor Chris Rock recently shared his apprehension for the former POTUS and FLOTUS during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. "I don't want to live in a world where President Obama is worried about his Rotten Tomatoes score. I want him above that at all times. Make your money, but I don't want [him] to be involved with that," he explained.

The former first couple will reportedly work on both scripted and unscripted series along with docu-series, documentary films, and features under a multi-year deal.

Rock, who inked a reported $40 million deal with the streaming service two years ago, offered a suggestion on what he'd do. "I'd just send them over to Donald Glover...That's what I'd do."
