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.
