Another feud may be brewing in Hollywood. Chris Rock has been pulled over by the police three times in two months, but Isaiah Washington isn’t feeling sorry for him. The Grey’s Anatomy alum tweeted at the comedian to “adapt” to racial profiling on Wednesday, April 1.
“I sold my $90,000.00 Mercedes G500 and bought 3 Prius’s, because I got tired of being pulled over by Police,” Washington wrote. “#Adapt @chrisrock.”
Rock has yet to comment on the tweet, but he has raised eyebrows with his previous postings. The comedian has taken a selfie and posted via Instagram each time he’s been pulled over.
“Just got pulled over by the cops wish me luck,” Rock captioned on Feb. 13. His second incident happened just weeks later on Feb. 27. “I’m not even driving stop by the cops again,” he wrote.
His most recent run-in with the law occurred on Mar. 31. “Stopped by the cops again,” he said, “wish me luck.”
Washington has since received backlash for his controversial response to Rock’s photos. Quick to squash the issue, he addressed his comments on CNN later that day. “At night, if [the police] don’t recognize me, I’m vulnerable like everyone else,” he said. “I will say this. Once I got out of my G500 and have been driving the Prius for the last four years, with windows that are tinted darker than the windows that were tinted in my $90,000 vehicle, I have not been pulled over one time.”
He added of Rock: “Obviously he hasn’t broken any laws. And what you drive shouldn’t matter, particularly if you are an African-American man. But if you are at war, which we all know that we are, there is a sentiment in the air that is highly toxic, highly negative.”
