While Americans were watching fireworks displays and enjoying barbecues, Chris Rock was stirring up some fireworks of his own with a controversial July 4 tweet.
“Happy white peoples independence day the slaves weren’t free but I’m sure they enjoyed fireworks,”Rock tweeted.
Reactions came fast and furious, with some fans telling the actor/comedian they were now swearing off his films for what they considered an unpatriotic comment.
