Chris Rock sexual harassment joke falls flat

CONTROVERSIAL: Chris Rock

PAGE SIX reports that comedian Chris Rock allegedly tried some new material during a comedy show, which did not go down well with women in the audience.

According to Page Six: "Rock said he won’t hire women anymore because he would need a crew of witnesses around him at all times so he wouldn’t be accused of rape, one patron of the MacDougal Street club told me.

"'They cry rape because they want money,' said Rock, who added he won’t even hire a cleaning lady because he’s afraid of false accusations."

One woman in attendance at the show clams: "Nobody was laughing. There were many boos and many women who were telling him he was a sexist pig. Two people got kicked out.”

These comments come hot of the heels of allegations against Kevin Spacey and Harvey Weinstein who have been named and shamed for alleged sexual harassment.
