Isaiah Washington tells Chris Rock to ‘adapt’ to racial profiling


Earlier this week, Chris Rock caused a firestorm of racial talk when he posted the latest in series of Instagram photos of himself being pulled over by police within the last two months. As expected, many Black fans and celebrities empathized with Rock and were outraged. However, actor Isaiah Washington made headlines when he told Rock that he should “adapt” to racial profiling to prevent himself from being pulled over.

The drama began on Wednesday when Washington tweeted his “adapt” message to Rock.

It didn’t take Black Twitter long to notice Washington’s message and they quickly fired back at the actor for instructing Rock to change himself or his lifestyle in order to prevent himself from being a victim of racism or racial profiling.

Washington then announced that he’d be clarifying his words in an interview with Don Lemon, who, ironically, has often been blasted by the Black community for promoting assimilation and Black stereotypes.
