Many comedians get to the top of their craft with brutal honesty. You can count Chris Rock among those comedians.

Last night at the NAACP awards, Chris Rock was discussing the topic of Jussie Smollett. He said that the actor who faked a hate crime and was somehow magically cleared of all charges will get no respect from him. Rock went straight into the lion's den and threw down the gauntlet.


Check out some of the responses on Twitter:

A comedy legend like Chris Rock knows how things work. Being honest is what makes them funny and they can't just bypass on calling out Jussie in fear of offending people. Rock did what he had to do in that spot: he delivered comedy gold and the crowd loved it. At least the ones that weren't afraid of offending anyone.

So what does the left think of Chris' comments?

Oh look, they are offended. What a surprise. Viktor was angry that anyone would have a sense of humor about anything.

Not everyone was angry. It's good to see this Twitter user step up and recognize Chris Rock for what he is: A legend.

Anyone who knows comedy knows that Chris is a real o.g. of comedy and he would have been doing himself and everyone else a disservice by letting Jussie off the hook.
