Chris Rock‘s making it clear where he stands in the vaxx/anti-vaxx debate by taking a big swipe at Kyrie Irving … and he did it in a prime location.
Chris was onstage Wednesday night in Brooklyn along with a bunch of bands and comedians performing at an NFT Week event when he hyped up the crowd by calling out anti-vaxxers. He eased into it with a joke about wearing face masks at concerts, and then simply asked, “Where’s my anti-vaxxers at?”
Oddly, the question actually drew some cheers — NYC requires vaccinations to attend shows like this — and then Rock hit ’em with … “You dumb, Kyrie motherf******!!!”
Chris was just a few miles away from Barclays Center, where Kyrie will NOT be playing this season for his Brooklyn Nets — but his joke still scored laughs from the hometown crowd. Remember, Chris is from Brooklyn … but he’s still a diehard Knicks fan.
Lil Baby, Questlove, Aziz Ansari, and Rich the Kid were some of the other performers — and after Chris took his shot at Kyrie Irving, he introduced The Strokes.
Oh, before getting off the stage he also dropped a Johnson & Johnson vaccine joke. Funny stuff … unless, of course, you got the J&J shot.
