Chris Rock’s pedophile jokes were unwarranted according to Michael Jackson‘s nephew Taj Jackson.

Rock got a few things off his chest in a new Netflix special entitled Selective Outrage. Within the opening minutes of the program, Rock takes aim at the deceased legend, but Taj Jackson went to his uncle’s defense.

Jackson, 49, took to Twitter, fed up with the legendary stand-up comedian using his family “as punching bags for his entire career.”

Jackson unloaded on the comedian for comparing the Thriller singer to R. Kelly, ending in a thank you to Will Smith for slapping Rock at the 2022 Oscars.

“Chris Rock has used my family as punching bags for his entire career. Yet I am supposed to feel bad for him getting slapped and humiliated on the Oscars. After seeing a new clip of him attacking my dead uncle in the first minutes of his ‘Retaliation-I’m still relevant’ special, I have three things to say,” Tito Jackson’s son said in his tweet.

A jury acquitted Michael of all child molestation charges in 2005; however, Kelly was found guilty of both child pornography and sex trafficking charges in 2021 and 2022.

The disgraced singer was sentenced to 20 years in prison in February 2023 on three counts of child pornography and three counts of enticement of a minor to engage in criminal sexual activity in Chicago.

There are others who believe Chris Rock has influence and going at Michael Jackson in this way ignores the court proceedings that shown he was innocent of charges in contrast to R. Kelly.

In the video above, the Viral Hip Hop Podcast believes Chris Rock attacking Jada Pinkett-Smith again during his special shows the comedian “deserved that slap” for calling her out her name, while praising trans-women.

It is argued by some that Chris Rock seems to always attack his own people and it makes some viewers uncomfortable. Old footage of Chris Rock appears online again of the “Everybody Hates Chris” star upsetting black folks, while trying to be a jester for other cultures.

It was noted that Chris Rock and other comedians ignore the allegations against the “King Of Rock ‘N Roll.” It is believed that entertainers are afraid of Priscilla Presley coming at them over lawsuits. Others believe it is just about jokes and nothing else.
