Chris Rock takes a selfie each time a cop pulls him over for ‘driving while black’

During the 5th season of the Chris Rock Show, the actor and comedian gave some notable yet hilarious advice on how to avoid getting the hell beat out of you by the police. It looks like Rock is putting that advice to good use, considering the fact that he’s been pulled over by the police three times in a period of just 7 weeks.

During the 5th season of the Chris Rock Show, the actor and comedian gave some notable yet hilarious advice on how to avoid getting the hell beat out of you by the police. It looks like Rock is putting that advice to good use, considering the fact that he’s been pulled over by the police three times in a period of just 7 weeks.

“You keep notes. You look for the recurring,” Rock told Vulture in December, talking about how he creates his standup routines.

“What’s not going away? Boy, this police-brutality thing—it seems to be lingering. What’s going to happen here? You don’t even have the joke, you just say, ‘Okay, what’s the new angle that makes me not sound like a preacher?’ Forget being a comedian, just act like a reporter. What’s the question that hasn’t been asked? How come white kids don’t get shot? Have you ever watched television and seen some white kid get shot by accident?”

During each incident with the police, Rock posted a selfie to Twitter via WhoSay. Below is the latest photo, plus two more from February:

Former “Grey’s Anatomy” star Isaiah Washington offered his own experience in response to Rock’s posts:

    I am from Vancouver,Canada and I wanted to say that Chris Rock is highly hypocritical in condemning the police in the USA and supporting them in Israel.The police and army in Israel have an Apartheid policy toward the Palestinian People.That is well known around the world.A lot more Palestinians get killed by Israeli police and the Israeli Army than Black People in the USA get killed by police.He don’t seem to care about that.
    A lot of performers like him have boycotted Israel because of the Apartheid Israeli Gov’t.Some of them are:Lauryn Hill,Roger Waters,Elvis Costello,Lorde Cassandra Wilson,Stevie Wonder and Mike Leigh.These performers stand with the Palestinian People in their fight against Israeli Apartheid.Chris Rock decided to support Israeli Apartheid and go to Israel this June.He is an enemy of the Palestinian People and should be condemned.
