What’s Got Chris Rock So Upset?

Everybody’s talking about this new video spoof by comedian Chris Rock called “Crackers” which has the potential to create quite a stir once folks realize that he’s not singing about thin, crispy wafers.

The song is a takeoff on Outkast’s mega hit “Hey Ya” — and we think we know why he did it.

Peep the tweet below by Tichina Arnold who played the young Chris’ mother on the popular show ‘Everybody Hates Chris’.

Did you know that the show was canceled? I had no idea. So maybe this is why Chris made the video as a subliminal diss to the network for canceling the show unexpectedly.

On the other hand, maybe Tichina Arnold and Terry Crews got the big head from all the positive press and great ratings and decided they were worth decidedly more cash than the network was willing to dish out.

Being greedy will get your show canceled in a hot minute.

    The Original MsG says:

    Furthermore Sandra, Terry & Tichina ain’t bothering nobody, so you need to hush creating gossip. I met Terry not to long ago with his wife Becky and they both were so sweet and seemingly humble for the attention.
    Those people are just tryin to stay employed like the rest of us.

    Everyone knows this show was cancelled. Chris even said it himself last year that the show will end around the same time he dropped out of school and got into comedy. We knew the show would be cancelled when the C(oloreds) W(ithheld) moved his show and that other show to Fridays.

    Once the show got moved to Friday it was a done deal. It had nothing to do with Tichina or Terry wanting more money. How can you suggest that when it’s obvious Sandra your’e the last to Know the show got canned.

    nika405 says:

    @therapist911 yes booty means bad lol. I just wasn’t feeling it at all, maybe three good songs and they will end up being singles or already are, then the Autotune just put the nail in the coffin!

    I’ve had Usher’s album for about a month (I mean since yesterday :yes: ) I’m not really into it. It’s better than Here I Stand but he’s trying really hard to remain relevant. When did he start cursing on tracks???

    been knew the show was over. i didn’t catch it until it was in syndication though. my whole family likes that show and it actually addressed some issues that i could identify with being that i grew up in the city in neighborhoods similar to the show. i think it had potential to be this generation’s huxtables. way better than than tyler perry garbage

    Bird says:

    That’s my girl Sandra. Always speculating in error. First you got Erykah Badu with a fake booty and green screen and now authorities are investigating her little stunt and conisidering charges. Some green screen that was. Now you all kinds of wrong on this. The cancellation of Everybody Hates Chris was announced months before it happened. The problem is many people didn’t watch it or The Game until they went into syndication. People had never even heard of the shows. Many people think the syndicated shows are new. Too bad they didn’t support when it was important.

    @Civil….u know I don’t like that “urban” word in terms of describing something “black”. LOL

    Speechless was a good song. However I didn’t like it until I saw her perform it live at her concert. FIYAH

    See I don’t want her to take a break. I like Pop Music especially when a R&B influence. I have Fantasia and Key Co for my “urban” (if u can’t beat them join them) R&B music.

    securityone says:

    Trust that Cris Rock is making more money with the show being in syndication than he did when it was T.V. every week. Producers make more money in syndication deals. Hopefully Tichina and Terry’s managers worked out syndication deals for them, before they took the roles because you can’t do it after the show is canceled…just ask Gary Coleman.

    Oops sorry Sandy!

    @therapist…I agree with you but she’s gotten a little too far away from the R&B/Pop music to just completely mainstream songs.

    I can’t see the video but I loved the show. It was one of the few primetime shows I could actually watch with my kids and as everybody else said the show got cancelled because it was a successful black comedy on a white network that didn’t involve sex, drugs, violence and actually showed working class blacks in a positive yet still humorous light. Truth be told, it was better than 90% of the other shows on that network and YT couldn’t handle it hence the move to Fridays

    @ Point you do have a point about the life spans of some shows but with the writers they had they could have taken the show much further.
