Sharon Stone is defending comedian Affion Crockett after a woman rushed the stage and wouldn’t leave after telling him she didn’t appreciate his comedy.
The ‘Basic Instinct’ actress commented on the incident after the video went viral online, showing a white blonde woman walking onto the stage during Crockett’s set, who is a black comedian. Affion shared the stunning video, including the caption, “Soo tonight I had my first KAREN storm the stage like the Capitol. I can’t make this shit up. When I perform, I SAID WHAT I SAID. If you don’t like it, don’t come. Cancel deez nuts.”
In the footage, the woman stands on the edge of the stage — interrupting the comedian’s routine — all while telling him she is offended by his jokes. Apparently, they were sexual in nature. But, like a true performer, the comedian chooses to interact with the woman, asking why she would interrupt his set and questioning why she would care about the jokes in the first place.

“You insulted a lot of people tonight,” the woman can be heard saying on stage. Affion swiftly answered, “So, me up here describing my own life is insulting to you?” Incredibly, he asks the crowd for their approval, and they cheer him on. As security escorts the woman off of the stage, Crockett says into the microphone, “Bye Karen! See white people think they can do whatever the f— they want. Storm the capital and storm my got d— stage.”
The comedian got help from an A-lister — Sharon Stone — who commented on the viral video, saying, “I so don’t understand WHY anyone comes to anyone’s show and then complains about the content. DON’T COME,” Stone began.

She continued, “You’re coming is arbitrary: the art is not about YOU, it’s about the ARTIST; if YOU DONT LIKE IT: GO HOME. It’s ENTERTAINMENT not your ideaS 💡 DUH.”
Several other comedians supported Affion, including Cedric the Entertainer who commented, “Wow!! She didn’t know you do karate!!!” Holly Robinson Peete jumped into the conversation too, writing, “Karens heckling now????!!!!😤😤😤” Chaunte’ Wayans added, “We should have some laws changed when someone enters your space!”

Affion Crockett made huge headlines in the past few weeks after revealing why he believes Kevin Hart doesn’t get the same recognition as Eddie Murphy. The comedian was interviewed on ‘Drink Champs’ and was asked the question regarding the two legendary comedians.
Hart doesn’t get the same respect because Murphy “originally broke the mold for Black comedians.”
“The difference with Eddie and everybody else is that no one had ever seen what Eddie did,” he said. Adding, “Eddie was the first to do a lot of shit. Even though he patterned himself after Richard [Pryor], he took it to a different place. Just like Michael Jordan patterned himself after Doctor J. Kevin gets compared because he’s beastin’, but the difference between Kevin and Eddie is that by the time we [saw] Kevin’s success, we had already seen Eddie, Martin, and the Wayans family, so we had so many people before. But when Eddie broke, there was no one doing it like him.”
