It’s possible that Chris Rock is going to get smacked in the face again. This time it will be done by an irate husband for the umpteenth time. This time around, the royals would be participating. Rock made fun of Prince Harry’s adoring fiancee. Meghan Markle, in his most recent stand-up special, Selective Outrage, which is available on Netflix. Markle has been criticised in the past for expressing racist attitudes regarding the British royal family. Keep reading to find out Chris’s thoughts on Markle’s relationship with Harry and Meghan.
Instead of racism being the issue, the difficulty is with the spouse’s family
Chris Rock’s newest stand-up special for Netflix. “Selective Outrage,” which made its live debut on Saturday, contains jokes about Meghan Markle. Chris Rock used specific examples from Meghan’s background to illustrate. However, the tensions she experienced with her in-laws did not have a racial basis.
In reference to Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey. In which she and Prince Harry disclosed that the royal family was concerned about the skin colour of their pregnant child.
“Can you tell me more about Meghan Markle”? He opened his stand-up special by saying, “Seems like a sweet person – just complaining”. And then went on to describe a woman he had met earlier in his career. After that, Chris yelled out, “They are so racist, they are so racist,” in reference to Markle’s statements on Oprah. “They are so racist,” he repeated. Rock noted some of the difficulties. She faced racism but rather by the behaviour of her in-laws.
There are times when she complains about her in-laws. And when she does, I’m like, “I don’t know what the f*** she’s talking about.
In an attempt to sound like Oprah Winfrey, he imitated her by saying. “Oprah, they’re so bigoted they wanted to know how brown the baby was going to be”. He stated that his response was, “I’m like, ‘That’s not racist, because even black folks want to know how brown the baby is going to be.”
Chris Rock’s issue with Meghan
Chris Rock did not only dismiss Meghan’s allegations of racism. But he also provided the audience with some insight into what it was like for Meghan to visit Buckingham Palace. He remarked, “I am aware of how challenging it is for her to make an effort to integrate herself into the lifestyle of her white in-laws.
Chris continued by saying, “Yeah, it is difficult”. It is challenging, to be sure, but nowhere like as challenging as it would be for a white girl to integrate with the black family of her black husband. I mean, that’s some pretty terrible s*** to say. “I’ve been in Meghan Markle’s shoes,” he jokingly claimed. I always tell my black friends that if their white in-laws aren’t accepting of them, they should “marry a Kardashian.”
During his stand-up routine, Chris Rock called out Will Smith for his slap at the Oscars. Furthermore, he launched a sweeping attack on Jada Pinkett Smith’s behaviour at the ceremony. Rock also criticised Will Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, for her actions. It would appear that Chris gets his creative juices flowing by observing the partners of influential people. What are your thoughts on the information that Rock has revealed regarding the aristocracy? This time, rather than the royal family, BBC UK compensated him for his time and effort.
