Chris Rock has contracted Covid-19 and he says it’s NO JOKE.
The comedian took to Twitter on Sunday, September 19 to with a little PSA.
“Hey guys I just found out I have COVID, trust me you don’t want this. Get vaccinated,” he wrote.

If you wondering whether or not the actor is vaccinated, he is.
Rock revealed during an appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” that he did receive the Covid-19 vaccination earlier this year.
During his May 18th appearance he told Fallon, “They tested me coming in. I’m vaccinated. They call me two shots Rock. That’s what they call me. Two shots Rock, baby!”
He then did what he does best, cracked a joke about the vax.
“You know, besides this and the little foot growing out my ass, I feel fine,” he said.
To which Fallon quipped, “you don’t even notice it, you don’t even notice it.”
“Yeah, just a tiny foot growing out my ass. I just put aa little booty on it,” Rock teased.
Rock was vaccinated with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine which he compared to the “food stamps of vaccines.”
He went on to reveal that he ‘skipped’ the line and used his ‘celebrity’ to get the vaccine.
Earlier this year, Rock also sat down with Gayle King on CBS’ “Sunday Morning” to discuss the vaccine.
In fact that was the first thing King noted was how serious Rock was taking the pandemic.
“Let me just start by saying you clearly take Covid very seriously, because we are sitting out here as human popsicles,” King said while sitting on the patio of his New Jersey home.
Rock rebutted, “I’m just sayin’ like 15 people in your house? Come on. I don’t know that guy, Gayle. Lazarus could get us all killed, Gayle.”
When discussion of the vaccine came up, Rock admitted he couldn’t wait to get it.
Note, this interview was done in January before the vaccine was made available to everyone.
“I’m gonna put it this way — Do I take Tylenol when I get a headache? Yes,” he said, defending the vaccine. “Do I know what’s in Tylenol? I don’t know what’s in Tylenol, Gayle. I just know my headache’s gone. Do I know what’s in a Big Mac, Gayle? No. I just know it’s delicious.”
