Chris Rock took a swipe at those who have not taken the COVID-19 vaccine and unvaccinated NBA star Kyrie Irving when he took the stage in Brooklyn.
During the 56-year-old comedian’s appearance at an NFT event, he told the crowd he hasn’t seen any shows since the pandemic hit and asked if others have told crowds to “throw their masks in the air! And wave them like you just don’t care,” TMZ reported in a piece published Thursday.

“Where’s my anti-vaxxers at?” he added. “You fucking dumb, Kyrie motherfuckers!” (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
The comments drew applause and loud cheers from the crowd. The reaction from the audience was curious considering how New York City requires vaccinations to attend shows, the outlet noted. (RELATED: Kevin Durant Reveals He’ll Wear Number 7 For The Brooklyn Nets)
Rock then called out the crowd to cheer for their vaccine of choice.
“Is it Moderna?” the stand-up comedian shouted. “Is it Pfizer? Is it J and J [Johnson and Johnson], the food stamp of vaccines.”
