Rock raised eyebrows on Thursday night when he tweeted out a joke about the state of Odom and Kardashian’s relationship, saying, “Here’s to Lamar Odom on being the first guy in history to have coke and hookers save his marriage.” He also tweeted out his support for Odom, who is still hospitalized, adding, “Stay strong Lamar.”
The response to the joke has been mixed, with some saying that it is “too soon” to be making jokes, as it was only last week that Odom was discovered unconscious in a Nevada brothel. But others seem to like the joke, even if they are a bit uncomfortable.
“@chrisrock Not sure if I should consider this inappropriate or hail you as a goddamn genius,” said one Twitter user.
“We laughed, We favorited but we won’t retweet…sooo messed up LOL,” said another.
