Bobby Brown Responds to Chris Rock’s Drug Joke about Whitney Houston.

As some may know Chris Rock is no stranger to controversy. The comedienne came under fire for a joke he made about Whitney Houston over the weekend. Houston, died in February 2012, according to CBS reports, the cause was accidental drowning with heart disease and cocaine use as contributing factors.

Rock posted a meme on Instagram that read, “Me sitting in a meeting that could’ve been an email,” along with a picture of the late singer. He captioned the post, “Hurry up I got crack to smoke.” The post has now been deleted.

Bobby Brown, Whitney Houston’s ex-husband took to Instagram in response to Rocks drug joke. “During this time of women empowerment you chose to use your time to try and humiliate our Queen,” he wrote. “I thought you was a friend of the family,” he added.

The veteran singer isn’t the only person with complaints in response to the post. Many users on social media called Chris out for his offensive post.

TV producer Elgin Charles furiously tweeted: “I was already disappointed in Chris Rock (who I’ve known for years) for finding humor in Louis C.K. & Ricky Gervais’ use of the N-word. Now he’s making fun of my dearly departed friend, Whitney Houston, on IG. Addiction is NOT a laughing matter (sic)”

And another fan posted: “Not cool @chrisrock. I was a fan & had respect for you! Now I’m just disappointed at your lack of respect to an Icon & Lack Of considération to her family & Loved Ones. It Ain’t Funny Bullying a dead person Shame On You. (sic)”

Last year, Bobby blasted Kanye West for his “disgusting” decision to pay a reported $85,000 for a photo of Whitney’s drug-filled bathroom to use on Pusha T’s ‘Daytona’ album, which was released through the ‘Stronger’ hitmaker’s GOOD Music label.

He fumed: “Why would he post that on his album cover? That’s really disgusting that he would do that. That’s in really bad taste.”
