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.

“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:
