COMEDIAN Chris Rock Posted A Hilarious Lamar Odom Joke And The Internet Was ‘Outraged’
Chris Rock is a COMEDIAN. He is paid money to make jokes and find the hilarity in various topics, including unfortunate situations. One of the hot topics of late has been the sad unraveling of Lamar Odom. The former basketball star has since emerged from his drug-induced strokes and was coherent. Luckily for him he has reconciled with his wife Khloe Kardashian and has a clan of Kardashians women at his bedside, which has always proven to have the very best influence on men.
On Thursday night, Rock shared a hilarious Someecards joke about Odom on his Twitter.
Stay strong Lamar. pic.twitter.com/oWeciBKR9t

Chris Rock has an impeccable comprehension of comedy and that has nothing to do with the fact that I shared the exact same Lamar Odom photo an hour and 22 minutes before he did. People were not outraged that the 2016 Oscars host has an automatic watermark of “©2015 Chris Rock,” when it was clearly a Someecards joke, but rather that the JOKE was distasteful. Start up the outrage factory!
@chrisrock shame on you! That's not something you can joke about it!

@chrisrock An opinion that's already circulated in various social media before this. One Chris is also entitled to. Don't like, don't follow

Lamar didn’t get himself a trip to the hospital because he valiantly rushed into a 5-alarm blaze at a preschool and saved nine toddlers, three babies and a ferret. He was allegedly on a three-day $75,000 bender; chugging bottles of cognac, taking enough herbal Viagra to give an elephant a heart attack and snorting blow off hookers’ tits at a brothel. It’s called “context” people, learn it, understand it and apply it to your everyday life.
Thankfully not everyone found this offensive.
@chrisrock I choked on my blunt smoke I laughed so hard at this, good one bruh!!

I’m far more offended by the Kardashians than this harmless joke.
