Chris Rock Reacts to Jennifer Lawrence's Wage Gap Essay

Chris Rock is reacting to Jennifer Lawrence‘s wage inequality essay in a big way.

In a profile for SNL‘s Leslie Jones, the 50-year-old comedian commented on the 25-year-old Oscar winner’s stance on the issue.

“Black women have the hardest gig in show business. You hear Jennifer Lawrence complaining about getting paid less because she’s a woman—if she was black, she’d really have something to complain about,” Chris told the New Yorker.

Jennifer wrote the essay in response to her American Hustle salary, when she found out her male co-stars were all making more money than her and Amy Adams.
