Chris Rock’s New Stand-Up Special Targets Woke Victimhood

'Some of that s**t she went through was not racism. It was just some in-law s**t...'

(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) In his brand-new Netflix stand-up special, comedian Chris Rock went after woke ideology and icons, calling out Meghan Markle and discussing the incident with actor Will Smith at the 2022 Oscars.

The special, titled “Selective Outrage,” targeted some of the many inconsistencies littered throughout the woke movement, including Meghan Markle’s accusations of racism against the British Royal Family.

According to the Daily Caller, Rock brought up Markle’s infamous interview with Oprah Winfrey, where she and her husband, Prince Harry, attacked the royal family for alleged racism. The comedian accused her of winning the “light skinned lottery,” and told her to stop “complaining.”

“Some of that s**t she went through was not racism. It was just some in-law s**t,” Rock said.

Rock argued that the royals’ interest in the skin tone of Markle’s baby was not racist, because black families also wondered about whether they would have a “Steph Curry baby” or a “Draymond Green baby,” making reference to the two Golden State Warriors basketball players.

‘”They’re so racist, they’re so racist,”‘ Rock quipped, “That’s not racist, because even black people want to know how brown the baby going to be!”

Rock also took shots at woke ideology, calling it “selective outrage” and warning people against “fall[ing] into the woke trap.”

“Motherf***ers typing out woke a*s tweets on a phone made by child slaves,” he said. “Not only is everybody full of s***, every business is full of s***.”

He took shots at companies’ constant virtue-signaling as well.

“I was in the mall the other day, I went by the store Lululemon, I walk by and in the window of every Lululemon there’s a sign that says, ‘we don’t support racism, sexism, discrimination, or hate,’” he said. “And I’m like, ‘who gives a f***?’ You’re just selling yoga pants.”

Rock suggested most people would prefer a pair of $20 racist yoga pants to the company’s $100 nonracist ones, eliciting applause from a largely black audience in Baltimore, Md.

Rock concluded the roughly hourlong standup special by taking a shot at Smith, who infamously slapped him at the 2022 Oscars.

“Will Smith practices selective outrage because everyone that knows what happened,” Rock said.

“Everybody that really knows, knows I had nothing to do with that s***. I didn’t have any entanglements,” he  continued. “His wife was f***** her son’s friend.”
