Chris Rock may have gone a little too far this time. The comedian posted a picture of Michael Jackson to his Instagram account that compares the late musician to Kris Jenner, but fans are not happy about it.
With one post, Chris Rock, 51, may have closed the generational divide and found a way to anger fans both young and old. Chris used a comedic photo of the late singer Michael Jackson to mock momager Kris Jenner, 60, sending the internet into a frenzy.
Chris has always been known to get people talking over his comedic take on life. The image, which the comedian captioned, “Great pic” got a lot of people talking on social media. However, a lot of debate was over whether the photo was offensive to Kris or Michael. Of course most of the comments were all in good fun, as fans can see how hilarious the photo is, and if you’re following Chris, then you’re already prepared for his brand of humor. No one could choose which, but a lot of laughter ensued. Let’s be honest, it isn’t a flattering pic for either star, but it does highlight their striking resemblance. Maybe not striking, but eerily similar.
The Kardashian-Jenner clan has always been fair game for social media jokes, and it can’t be denied that there is a strong resemblance between Kris and Michael in the photo, but maybe it’s a little too soon to be poking fun at Michael? Chris obviously didn’t think so. Of course, when does he ever think a joke has gone too far? Never. There is no boundary that Chris hasn’t crossed. Fans opinions have been swift and unforgiving, with many expressing their opinions on Twitter.
The star has always been the first to engage in any controversial jokes or things that push the button, so even if people did find it offensive, it’s probably fair to say he wouldn’t care. Chris has always valued a good laugh over being politically correct. Pushing the limits in his comedy is something that he has become well known for over the years.
HollywoodLifers, do you think the photo was all in good fun? Or did Chris Rock go a little too far this time?
