Chris Rock made a joke about Whitney Houston and it backfired, leaving fans angry at the comedian for his “tasteless” humor regarding the late superstar.
Rock took to Instagram on Saturday and put up a meme featuring Houston wearing sunglasses, and looking less-than impressed during a sit-down interview.
“Hurry up I got crack to smoke,” he captioned the meme, opening him up to a slew of comments from followers who were less than impressed.
“Tasteless and cheap joke. You should know better,” one person wrote. “This is how you speak on the dead? Make better content,” wrote another.
Many called Rock’s post “bogus,” “terrible” and “trash.”
The comedian has yet to address the backlash.
