Black Lives Matter Leader Not Amused By Rebel Wilson's VMAs Jokes

Rebel Wilson talks with a friend while leaving the ArcLight Cinemas in Los Angeles on Wednesday afternoon (September 2).

The 35-year-old actress has come under a bit of fire for her comment and attire on stage during the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards.

“A lot of people have problems with the police, but I really hate police strippers…You guys know what I’m talking about. They come to your house, you think you’re getting arrested, and you just get a lap dance that is usually uninspired!” Rebel said on stage.

#BlackLivesMatter movement leader DeRay McKesson wasn’t too pleased about the joke.

“.@RebelWilson/@MTV, police violence isn’t a joke, as the deaths of #TamirRice, #RekiaBoyd, #FreddieGray, #MikeBrown, & #MyaHall remind us,” he wrote on Twitter.

He added, “When’s the last time you heard a Holocaust, Sandy Hook, or Columbine joke at an awards show? Exactly.”

    Someone needs to tell this guy that Gervais make a holocaust joke at the golden globes

  • kellyf

    Are they really comparing the death of Michael Brown to the holocaust? REALLY?????????

  • Sandy McFarlane

    I actually thought it was pretty tasteless as well. Making a police brutality joke right before presenting Best Hip-Hop Artist? fuck outta here…………….

  • Sandy McFarlane

    …….and that wasn’t the least bit appropriate either, what the fuck is your point?

  • Davis

    He said when what the last time someone made a joke about the holocaust at an awards ceremony, so I gave an example. You understand now?

    I am so tired of people going after comedians … it’s political commentary … it has been the core of topical comedians for decades … comedians use their comedy to draw attention to important topics and make people think … and for the record that was a stripper joke, not a police brutality joke. the lack of education in this country is staggering when people can’t understand basic humor … there is also some racial undertones here too … if this had been Richard Pryor telling the joke it would have been met with a standing ovation.

    They’re comparing the Holocaust to police brutality as a whole, not the name you singled out. Not only black people and supposed “criminals” are victims of police brutality. Rekia Boyd was not a criminal. Aiyana Jones was a 7 year old sitting in her house killed by police. Zachary Hammond was a white unarmed teenager killed in a parking lot. So yes, the Holocaust (the mass killings of innocent people) is being compared to the police killing thousands of innocent people.

  • forrest gump

    howmuch is her weight, you say?

  • Legendary Trolly

    I thought u were racist??

  • FerCat

    Richard Pryor is actually funny though.
    Rebel is more of an Andy Dick type.

  • VanityInsecurity

    It’s called freedom of speech. If the black lives matter spokesman can say what he wants so can Rebel Wilson. It’s come to the point that everything & anything people say is about race relations & its not. Comedians poke fun at everything.. that is the point. lighten the eff up already.

  • Sandy McFarlane

    huh?

  • Legendary Trolly

    I said, I thought you were racist..

  • Wendy

    But black lives matter activists can tell people it’s “open season” on police officers and no one bats an eye. So fucked up.

  • shawnthesheep

    You really should educate yourself. The movement is not about Michael Brown. It’s about the routine and disproportionate killing of people of color by police.

  • Alexander Fisher-levesque

    To be fair Nicki Minaj DID reference Colombine in a song. Innocent LGBTs of all skintones have been killed for thousands of years including during the Holocaust along with torture and being used as lab rats. Also her joke was almost funny but I was more offended at her targeting strippers. Our dancing is ALWAYS inspired… though I’ve seen some who shouldn’t be dancing because of lack of rythm… perhaps she wasn’t tipping enough… nobody doing THAT job will try to impress a cheap tipper and y’all females ARE the cheapest.
