“Hey guys I just found out I have COVID, trust me you don’t want this. Get vaccinated,” he wrote, without elaborating further about his symptoms.
Back in May, Chris Rock joked that he cut the vaccination line in order to receive the shot.
“I’m two-shots Rock, that’s what they call me,” he joked, before specifying he received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which is a single-dose shot. “That’s the food stamps of vaccines,” he said, joking that he “used” his “celebrity” to be one of the first to get the vaccine.
“I was like, ‘Step aside, Betty White, I did Pootie Tang. Step aside, old people.’ I was like Billy Zane on the Titanic. Leo [DiCaprio] died. Billy Zane lived to see another day. I don’t want to be Leo at the bottom of the ocean. Billy Zane got another woman after that thing. In reality, you want to be Leo — but not in that movie.” Watch the appearance inside.
We are wishing the best to Chris Rock in his recovery.
He also revealed that he was offered a role in a hit show several times.
