Chris Rock fired several shots during his Netflix special, Selective Outrage, including some at Meghan Markle.
During the special, which aired live Saturday night, Rock called out the Duchess of Sussex over claims of racism she levelled against the royal family, particularly when it came to the color of her and Prince Harry’s now three-year-old son, Archie’s skin.
Some of that sh*t she went through was not racism,” Rock joked, but rather what he called “in-law sh*t.”
“Sometimes it’s just some in-law sh*t,” Rock said of Markle. “Because she’s complaining, I’m like, ‘What the f**k is she talking about? ‘They’re so racist, they wanted to know how brown the baby was going to be…’ I’m like, ‘That’s not racist,’ cause’ even Black people want to know how brown the baby gon’ be. Sh*t. We check behind them ears.”
Chris Rock also argued that Meghan Markle was “acting all dumb like she didn’t know nothing. Going on Oprah, ‘I didn’t know, I had no idea how racist they were.’ It’s the royal family! You didn’t Google those motherf***ers? What the f**k is she talking about, she didn’t know?”
“The f**k? It’s the royal family, they’re the original racists,” he continued. “They invented colonialism. They’re the OGs of racism. They’re the Sugarhill Gang of racism. Like, ‘a hip, hop, the hippie, the hippie to the hip hip hop-a don’t stop — the racism.'”
The segment about Markle came after Rock claimed that “everyone is trying to be the victim, including people who know g*damn well they’re not victims.” After mentioning the Duchess specifically, he said that she “seems like a nice lady, just complaining.”
“Like, didn’t she hit the light-skinned lottery,” Rock asked. “And she’s still going off complaining?”
Rock continued, adding that he understood Markle’s “dilemma.”
“Black girl trying to be accepted by her white in-laws,” Rock said. “Oh, it’s hard. It’s so hard, it’s very hard — but it ain’t as hard as a white girl trying to be accepted by her Black in-laws. Now, that sh*t is really hard.”
“If you Black, and you wanna be accepted by your white in-laws, then you need to marry a Kardashian,” he later continued. “Because they accept everybody. Kris Jenner is like the Statue of Liberty.”
