Stand-up comedian Chris Rock may be expecting a slap from yet another furious husband. This time, it would be a royal hand! During his recent Netflix stand-up, Selective Outrage, Rock took digs at Prince Harry’s beloved wife, Meghan Markle for her racist claims against the British royal family. Read on to learn what Chris said about Markle.
It’s In-Law S***, Not Racism…
Chris Rock took several digs at Meghan Markle in his recent Netflix stand-up “Selective Outrage”, which was broadcast live on Saturday (March. 4). During his set, Chris Rock gave several examples of how Meghan went through “in-law sh**” and not “racism”.
Referring to her interview with Oprah Winfrey, where Markle and Prince Harry revealed that the royal family was concerned about the skin colour of their unborn child, Rock questioned the belief that Markle was the victim of racism, and brushed off her claims by calling it “in-law s***”. In the 2021 interview, Harry and Meghan stated that there were “concerns” raised about “how dark” their baby’s skin might be before Archie was born.
Like, who is this girl Meghan Markle?” he started in his stand-up special, adding: “Seems like a nice lady – just complaining. Like didn’t she hit the light-skinned lottery?” Chris then mocked her claims made to Oprah, saying as Markle: “They’re so racist, they’re so racist.” Rock then said: “Some of that s*** she went through was not racism; it was just some in-law s***.
Rock continued: “Sometimes, it’s just some in-law s*** because she’s complaining, I’m like ‘What the f*** is she talking about?’” He mocked her by repeating her claims: “’ Oprah, they’re so racist they wanted to know how brown the baby was going to be’ – I’m like, ‘That’s not racist, because even Black people want to know how brown the baby going to be.’”
Meghan’s Problem Per Rock…
Not only did Chris Rock shut down Meghan’s racism claims, but he also told the audience what Meghan was actually going through whilst her time at Buckingham Palace. “I know her dilemma: Black girl trying to be accepted by her white in-laws,” he said.
Chris continued, “Oh, it’s hard. It’s so hard, it’s very hard– but it ain’t as hard as a white girl trying to be accepted by her Black in-laws. Now that s*** is really hard.” He then quipped: “Meghan Markle, I know the dilemma. I’m like, ‘If you black and you wanted to be accepted by your white in-laws then you need to marry a Kardashian because they accept everybody.’”
During his stand-up, Chris Rock didn’t hesitate to roast Will Smith over the Oscars slap and even made a bold Oscars claim about Jada Pinkett Smith. Well, it seems like Chris finds his content around celebrity wives. Is there harm in it? What do you think about Rock’s revelations about the royal couple? Felt like he was paid by BBC UK for this set if not the royal family, eh?
