That comment came during an interview that Rock did with Tucker Carlson back in March of 2022, before Tucker was fired from Fox News Channel. During the interview, Rock not only said “f*** Fauci,” but also that because he is not in bed with the big, woke corporations, he can say and do whatever he wants, politically.
Speaking about that, Rock said, “I’m not in bed with any big corporate things. At the end of the day, there’s nobody I’m beholden to — no record companies, no corporate interests, no nothing. You can’t cancel me. I love it when they try.”
That stands in contrast to those reliant on woke megacorps, about whom he said, “Because they’re in bed with record companies and corporate deals, and structures at every level. If someone finds a way to get me here or there, I’ll find another way around it.”
Watch that here:
Rock also spoke with Tucker about an incident during a concert when he said, “f— Oprah Winfrey” and “f— Joy Behar.” Speaking about that to Tucker, Rock said, “I don’t apologize to anybody. I’m not an Oprah Winfrey fan. I got drunk and f—in’ next thing, I’m on stage [saying] f— Oprah…”
He also talked about when he mistakenly attacked the wrong woman, telling Tucker, “I was trying to go after Kathy Griffin you know, for holding up Trump’s head, but I’m so out of it I’m like ‘f— Kathie Lee Gifford.’ When it comes back on TMZ or whatever a few weeks later I’m like ‘oh man, I like Kathie Lee Gifford.’ We’ve been kind of friendly throughout the years.”
That’s far from the only time when Rock has gone on the warpath against insane wokeness and those who push it. For example, Rock attacked leftists who move from blue states to red states but bring their insane politics with them despite those politics having destroyed the states from which they fled.
Commenting on that and the war those people wage on history when they move to red states, he said, “We are sick of seeing history torn to the ground. Whether it be in the form of monuments, statues, and now something so important here in Nashville, like the former home of Hank Williams, Beechwood Hall. … Where does this end?”
He added that the California and New York to red state migration patterns fell like an invasion when encountered, saying, “We kind of knew that from the beginning, once this fiasco started that it was never going to end. And now we kind of feel like we’re under an invasion from the state of California, which we understand in a lot of ways. I have a lot of friends here that come from these spots — California and New York City.”
That then came back to the topic of cancellation, as he noted that he wouldn’t be intimidated into silence, saying, “A lot of people say it, and they say it under their breath, but they’re scared to say it out loud. So, once again, I’ll be the guy: They come here leaving these woke policies from those cities for better schools, lower taxes, lower crime. You have talked about it a million times. We kind of tell them to leave your effing politics at the state line from where you’re coming. And this is just one more example.”
