Chris Rock should be held accountable for ‘horrible’ jokes: Nicole Simpson’s family

Chris Rock’s “distasteful” joke about the highly publicized and brutal murder of Nicole Brown Simpson that shook the world in 1995 did not sit well with the deceased’s sister.

Nicole’s sis Tanya Brown, a mental health advocate, and motivational speaker slammed the comedian for “crossing the line” by cracking jokes on such a horrible crime.

In an interview with TMZ, Tanya said that the joke was not only not funny, but that it did not make any sense, adding that comparing Oscars slap to double murder is like comparing “apples to oranges.”

She went on to tell the outlet that the pain of her sister’s horrible murder is still fresh for their family and jokes like this are distasteful attempts at humor.

Tanya further said that the Everybody Hates Chris star should be held accountable for their tacky taste, the publication reported.

Later, in an Instagram post, Tanya wrote, “Nothing Is more lovely than to wake up on a Tuesday morning (Not) with TMZ calling you saying Chris Rock made a horrible ‘joke’ about Nicole.”

“BEYOND distasteful!” she added. “Nothing funny about his joke towards Jada as she suffers from a physical condition and nothing funny about equating an Oscar host invitation to a double homicide.”

“I always thought he was funny, but he crossed the line with this one. In other words, Y’all!!!! Stop using my sister, OJ, and Ron as part of your cricking comedy act. There are families behind this tragedy!”
