Chris Rock Riffs On Chris Brown Domestic Abuse Charges

First we get a Chris Brown/Cher mini slider, now Chris Rock is starting some delicious New York strip steak drama? Good thing we’re omnivores because there is beef as far as the eye can see! This morning when Today host Matt Lauer said in passing, “We’re hoping the same kind of weather hits us tomorrow when we’ve got Chris Brown out on the plaza,” guest Rock couldn’t help but joke, “Did you say you hope the same weather hits you? I hope some weather doesn’t smack us upside the head.” Chris Rock can’t help it! He’s a comedian. He knows you can’t let perfectly good beef go to waste. Our deepest apologies to Elmo though; no tiny puppets needed to hear that.

Now that we think about it, Rock’s comments actually pale in comparison to how hard Cher zinged Chris earlier this week following rumors that Brown took to Twitter and declared that the Just Like Jesse James singer “needs a beating” for criticizing President Obama. The gossip later turned out to be false, but when a fan tweeted, “Cher, how do you feel about Chris Brown saying he was gonna hit you.” Cher replied, “I don’t know. Is that something he’s particularly good at?” Someone get the grill going and break out the hamburger buns! Looks like we’re going to have beef all summer long!
