Chris Rock did not leave any celebrity who had been ‘selectively outrageous’ alluding to the moniker of the show. Along with Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, he took a dig at Meghan Markle. The Duchess of Sussex has claimed that they left the Royal Family back due to the unwanted attention from the media and the racist treatment towards her. She opened up about it during the Oprah interview.

Now, Chris Rock claims that she did not go through racism, she was dealing with some “in-law s***.” He started with, “Like who is this girl Meghan Markle? Seems like a nice lady – just complaining. Like didn’t she hit the light-skinned lottery?”.

Then, he roasted her reactions during the Oprah interview in 2021. Chris said, “You didn’t google these motherfuckers? What the f*** is she talking about she didn’t know? It’s the royal family. They’re the original racists. They invented colonialism. They are the OG’s of racism. They’re the Sugarhill Gang of racism.”

During his set, Chris Rock admitted that he knows what Meghan Markle is going through. He said, “I know her dilemma: Black girl trying to be accepted by her white in-laws. Oh, it’s hard. It’s so hard, it’s very hard– but it ain’t as hard as a white girl trying to be accepted by her Black in-laws. Now that s*** is really hard.”

After forming the premise, he landed the joke referencing the Kardashians asking her to marry one, because the family is very accepting. Rock said, “Meghan Markle, I know the dilemma. I’m like, ‘If you black and you wanted to be accepted by your white in-laws then you need to marry a Kardashian because they accept everybody.'”

King Charles III has evicted Meghan Markle and Prince Harry from their UK base Frogmore Cottage. The cottage belongs to the late Queen Elizabeth II, but she gave it to the couple when the actress was pregnant with Archie. The two had their wedding reception in 2018 at the Cottage. They bore the cost of the renovations and repairs at the five-bedroom home. The sources told The Sun, “This surely spells the end of Harry and Meghan’s time in the UK”.
