To this day, I can’t understand why Chris Rock made the joke he did about Whitney Houston and her drug use. The meme was about meetings that could have been emails. Still, Rock brought up Houston’s addiction, typing in the caption: Hurry up I got crack to smoke.”
Now, we’re not here to deny Whitney’s struggles throughout her life. Still, making light of the addiction that eventually claimed her life was not funny…at all.
So, I was happy to hear that Houston’s ex-husband and father of her only child, Bobby Brown came to her defense.
“During this time of women empowerment you chose to use your time to try and humiliate our QUEEN!!!”
Interestingly enough, when TMZ caught up to him and asked about Rock’s “joke,” Brown took an entirely different tone.
TMZ: Is there any chance you guys can make peace?
Bobby Brown: Yeah definitely.
TMZ: Has he reached out?
Bobby Brown: He hasn’t reached out but he’s still my boy, you know.
TMZ: Water under the bridge? Would you have to chin check him if you saw him in person?
Bobby Brown: Only he knows that.
TMZ: There’s a peace summit coming?
Bobby Brown: Yeah, soon as I see him, there’s a peace summit.
TMZ: Does he owe it to you to reach out?
Brown: He knows how to get in touch with me.
TMZ: Would you take his call?
Brown: Yes, I would. He’s been a good friend for a long time. He just made a mistake with a joke and it didn’t work too well for him or for how I was feeling at the time.
TMZ: No hard feelings.
Brown: None, whatsoever.
