Chris Rock was brutally honest about Jussie Smollett at the NAACP awards last night, saying the actor who faked a hate crime and was magically cleared of all charges would get no respect from him. Talk about going into the lion’s den and throwing down the gauntlet …

Chris nailed it.
Let’s hear it for Gen X!
We just saw this generational divide in real time. Chris Rock got on stage and clowned Jussie Smollett then Yara Shahidi got on stage and said “I stand with Jussie.”
The OGs believe no one or no joke is off limits.
New generation get offended and stand w ppl even in the wrong.

The ‘OGs’ know how comedy is supposed to work, and that the only way comedy survives is by being honest about everything, even those things that might make us uncomfortable. And people who get more offended over Chris calling Jussie out than they are about the actor making a mockery of real hate crimes and then suffering zero consequences for it can have a nice, refreshing glass of STFU juice.
I love Chris Rock. He is truly fearless in his comedy. It makes him one of the greats.
This is not up for debate.

One guess on how the Left is dealing with Chris’ comments …
Yara Shahidi was on stage right after and said "I stand with Jussie" That was my favorite moment.

Y'all are aware Chris Rock is a comedian, right? I'm not understanding the shock here.

Because EVERYONE IS OFFENDED all of the time. That’s the new thing in 2019 …
Remember when Chris Rock let white men say the N word in his presence and he laughed? https://t.co/aH7jM93MFs

Yes, he ‘let’ them say it.
It’s time we cancel Chris Rock. The same man who sat with two men and joked about the N-word and Jerry Seinfield had to say something while he laughed. Now you make a colorism joke at the #NAACPImageAwards #CancelChrisRock pic.twitter.com/CX2B9YOWgC

It wasn’t just jokes, it was the reality of Jussie faking a hate crime and making it harder for people who truly do suffer through a hate crime to be taken seriously. But we digress.
I don't know what's worse, Chris Rock's jokes about Jussie or the audience laughing at them

How dare people have a sense of humor about anything these days.
I’m proud of Chris Rock – He’s a good man. #Legend

He’s the real OG.
