“That’s not right what [Chris Rock] said about his wife, calling her GI Jane,” said Lee, referencing a crack the former “SNL” star made about Pinkett Smith’s hair loss from alopecia, which Smith has said is what spurred him to walk on stage and hit Rock.  Lee said Smith was “standing up for his wife” during the infamous celeb-on-celeb smack heard ’round the world, which inspired him to storm the stage and tackle Chappelle during the May 3 “Netflix is a Joke” show after he made quips about LGBTQ people and homelessness.  I wanted him to know that next time, he should consider first running his material by people it could affect,” Lee claimed. “I wanted Dave Chappelle and people to know that these are things you need to be more sensitive about and not joke about.” 

During an interview on Saturday, Lee told The Post he is a bisexual sexual abuse survivor who previously dealt with homelessness and was “triggered” by the “Chappelle Show” star’s jokes. On Monday he admitted the attack was also partially driven by publicity for his career as budding rap star and once put out a song about Chappelle.

“I’m not going to lie… it was a bit of clout-chasing,” Lee said of his decision to jump on stage. “In Hollywood, you know they say there is no such thing as bad publicity. I rap about these things in my music and knew it would get attention.”

SO NOT HELPFUL.

DELTA Removes Chris Rock Special from In-flight Entertainment Over Anti-Gay Slurs – Video

DELTA Removes Chris Rock Special from In-flight Entertainment Over Anti-Gay Slurs - Video

 

Delta Airlines is going to remove Chris Rock’s Kill the Messenger HBO comedy special from in-flight entertainment systems after Jeremy Foreshew, a Grindr employee, complained to Delta officials about a scene in which Rock explains the proper context in which it’s okay to use the word “faggot”.

“I just came to a place where I couldn’t believe this was something happening in 2016. When you think of the number of people who fly Delta every day and have access to that language… it just shocked me.” Foreshew said.

Delta which recently made headlines after cutting lesbian kissing scenes out of the Oscar-nominated Todd Haynes film Carol released the following statement to GayTravel.com.

“The Chris Rock ‘Kill the Messenger’ segment should not have been uploaded on flights based on our criteria for excluding onboard programming that includes content featuring explicit language, slurs, extreme violence, and explicit scenes. We apologize to any customers who were offended by the content or our airing of the segment, and we are working as quickly as possible to remove it from our aircraft. Our commitment to inclusion and respect of all customers is rooted in Delta’s values and culture, and we proudly embrace diverse people, thinking and styles.”

Rock has been using the “faggot” routine since before 2008 when the comedy special was filmed along with other “sensitive” segments as Black People VS. Niggaz and White Girls. 

There was no word weather or not Foreshew, who works for the gay sex app w/race filters gasped and clutched his pearls on the flight.

Oh, and its”Mr. Faggot”, bitch.
