Newswire: Chris Rock sure gets pulled over a lot, presumably for being funny
Chris Rock is a comedian, which means he thinks everything is some kind of joke—probably even our nation’s traffic laws. Surely that’s the only explanation for why Rock has been pulled over by police three times in the past seven weeks alone. It’s a reminder of the way so many people still face a constant struggle in this country, as they’re forced to deal with being unfairly profiled as funny.
Rock has been posting photos of himself to social media every time he’s been stopped by the cops, each one captioned with the same message: “wish me luck.” The first incident was nearly a year ago, when Rock was detained by officers who saw him driving and probably said, “What’s a funny guy doing driving a fancy car like that?”
