And now in “You might want to avoid the internet for a while” news, some of the internet is apparently very upset that Rebel Wilson made a joke about the police while presenting the award for Best Hop Hop Video. Which…maybe might not have been the best idea, considering how many times the police made the news this past year. Anyway, she did it, and it went a little something like this.
“A lot of people have problems with the police. But I really hate police strippers. You guys know what I’m talking about. They come to your house, you think you’re getting arrested, and you just get a lap dance that is usually uninspired! I hired a police stripper for my grandmother’s 80th, and he wouldn’t even feel her up. Well I paid an extra $100 for her to get an erotic back massage, but it only lasted one song! I hate this injustice. Hence the shirt.”
So yeah, the joke was mostly about police strippers, particularly how she hates them. But still, it prompted a lot of people to call Rebel out for what they considered was not exactly the most tasteful of jokes. The Huffington Post and the Daily Mail have collected a bunch of the tweets, which came from a variety of people, including Black Lives Matter activist DeRay Mckesson. So far, Rebel hasn’t said anything about this mess, besides tweeting a pic of her ass next to Nicki Minaj’s ass.
There was so much offensive shit last night (Kanye being given a microphone, etc.) that I almost forgot about Rebel’s maybe-you-should-skip-this-one police joke. I didn’t, however forget the wrong shit she said about stripper cops. Excuse you, Rebel, but I have never seen a stripper cop who didn’t give it his all when reporting for booty.
Here’s Rebel before the show looking like a low budget Avril Lavigne.
