Chris Rock: 'If Jennifer Lawrence was black, she'd really have something to complain about'

Apparently, Chris Rock doesn’t feel the same way about the gender pay gap in Hollywood that Jennifer Lawrence does. She stated that she was taken aback when learning of how much her male co-stars earn more than her, so she publicized her feelings. Chris Rock says that if she was black, she’d really have something to complain about. Racist much?

People reports:

Jennifer Lawrence might not make as much as her male counterparts, but according to Chris Rock, things could be a lot harder for the star.

“Black women have the hardest gig in show business,” he said in a New Yorker profile on Saturday Night Live’s Leslie Jones. “You hear Jennifer Lawrence complaining about getting paid less because she’s a woman – if she was black, she’d really have something to complain about.”

Is it me or does this sound like he’s playing down her essay and feelings because of the color of her skin? It’s as if she’s not allowed to feel that way because she’s white….DISCUSS.
