Bobby Brown Says Chris Rock Didn’t Apologize For Whitney Houston Joke, But He’s Not Mad Anymore
Late last month, comedian Chris Rock found himself in hot water with R&B singer Bobby Brown after Rock jokingly made comments regarding the late Whitney Houston in an Instagram post. Almost a month has passed and Brown recently gave an update on things between the two—and he revealed that no, Rock hasn’t apologized for his remarks.
Social media is filled with Whitney Houston memes, but according to Bobby Brown, Chris Rock took things too far when he posted a meme followed by a caption, mocking Houston’s past drug use. In the photo, Houston is seen with sunglasses on looking visibly irritated—and Rock added the caption, “Hurry up I got crack to smoke.” Brown promptly called Rock out for the post and he eventually took it down.
At the time, Brown confronted Rock on social media, writing:
“I thought you was a friend of the family. During this time of women empowerment you chose to use your time to try and humiliate our QUEEN!!!”
Brown recently revealed that in the weeks since the incident, Rock has not apologized to him for his comments about Houston, but they’re still good, as Brown referenced Rock, saying
“He hasn’t reached out, but he’s still my boy.”
Brown also added:
“He’s been a good friend for a long time. He just made a mistake with the joke and um, it just didn’t work too well for him or how I was feeling at the time.”
