Chris Rock Blames ‘Cancel Culture’ For Making Movies Boring

After a year of sitting at home, comedian Chris Rock, like many other stand-up comedians, has been trying to get back into the swing of being on stage and telling jokes.

He was on Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Show on Monday morning to talk about the process and his new ventures when one of the hosts, DJ Envy, asked about his thoughts on the now-famous “cancel culture.”

Rock, who has been a comedian since the 1990s, has a lot to say about the impact of this “culture” on comedy.

He also claimed that “cancel culture” is part of the reason why entertainment has become so “boring” in recent years, claiming that comedians and other authors have resorted to producing “safe” content in order to avoid being cancelled.

“I see a lot of unfunny comedians; I see unfunny TV shows, I see unfunny awards shows, I see unfunny movies — because everybody’s afraid to make a move,” Chris Rock said in an interview with DJ Envy and Angela Yee, arguing that everybody should have the “right to fail” as it is an essential part of every art form and the “ultimate cancel.”

Chris Rock isn’t a fan of cancel culture, and he expressed his displeasure with it in a recent “Breakfast Club” interview.

Rock has been known to tell new comedians they should always be nervous before getting on stage, no matter how long they’ve been in the game.

“The nerve isn’t like, ‘I’m scared I’m going to be cancelled,’ the nerve is like, ‘yo I’m scared they’re not going to laugh,'” he clarifies in light of cancel culture.
