It was a bad night for Chris Rock

The Comedy Celler is one of the most iconic comedy clubs in New York City. It’s a place where, on any given night, an A-list comedian can pop up and do a set, practicing material he or she had been working on.

Last Thursday night, Chris Rock was that comedian. He made a surprise appearance at the Cellar, and he allegedly performed a set that didn’t go over too well.

According to PageSix, Rock tested out material based on sexual assault. Rock joked he wouldn’t hire a woman because he would be afraid of getting convicted of rape. Rock allegedly said “They cry rape because they want money,”

A person who was there talked to PageSix about the reaction. That person said:

“Nobody was laughing. There were many boos and many women who were telling him he was a sexist pig. Two people got kicked out.”

Rock also joked about Harvey Weinstein, saying “Weinstein ­fucked with me by trying to have me star in the worst movies of all time.”
