Poor Chris Rock! After missing out on the Outstanding Directing for a Variety Special award, he had no words. Okay, he had one BAD word. Chris shouted out the ultimate expletive to show exactly how he felt when he didn’t get his due. Check out the hilarious clip!
Chris Rock, 51, just couldn’t contain himself at the 2016 Emmys when he shouted out “What the f**k!” after losing the Outstanding Directing for a Variety Special award to Grease: Live. Chris was clearly joking when he threw his hands up and cursed, though he was quickly reigned in by his girlfriend, Megalyn Echikunwoke, who might have been a tad embarrassed by her laughing beau. But what do you expect when you’re dating a class clown!
It was definitely a show-stopping moment that could not be silenced! So much so that the Television Academy tweeted a clip of it, captioning the short video, “.@chrisrock’s reactions are priceless.” They even added a laughing-so-hard-it’s-crying emoji, just so we know how funny they think Chris is. Way to steal the spotlight from Grease‘s directors, Thomas Kail and Alex Rudzinski, Chris!
The comedian was up for directing the talented Amy Schumer in her HBO special, Amy Schumer: Live At The Apollo, which was a completely fantastic production. So, even if he was doing the bit for a laugh, he had every right to be upset. A comedian directing a comedian? They should have been shoe-ins! Though, he still found a way to make lemonade out of lemons by making us all laugh when he was probably crushed. So, as long as you weren’t really being a sore loser, we’ll let the potty-mouth slide, Chris.
