On Tuesday, Chris Rock posted a selfie of him getting pulled over by the cops for the third time in seven weeks. The caption read, “"Stopped by the cops again wish me luck."
Rock was pulled over on Feb. 13 and Feb. 27 and shared both incidents on social media.
Rock has often joked about racial profiling. In a 2013 episode of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Jerry Seinfeld and Rock were pulled over for speeding.
"It'd be such a better episode if he pulled me to the side and beats the s**t out of me, don't you think?" Rock joked. "Now here's the crazy thing: If you weren't here, I'd be scared. Yeah, I'm famous — still black."
In response, former "Grey's Anatomy" actor Isaiah Washington suggested to Rock on Twitter that the comedian should adapt to racial profiling.
His controversial message sparked a firestorm of rage with Twitter:
And is @IWashington implying that Black folks who drive less expensive cars won't be pulled over by cops? That logic is broken as hell.— Elon James White (@elonjames) April 1, 2015
