Chris Rock is dealing with a coronavirus diagnosis.
The 56-year-old Spiral actor took to social media to confirm that he contracted COVID-19 on Sunday (September 19).
“Hey guys I just found out I have COVID, trust me you don’t want this. Get vaccinated,” he wrote, without elaborating further about his symptoms.
Back in May, Chris Rock joked that he cut the vaccination line in order to get the shot.
“I’m two-shots Rock, that’s what they call me,” he joked, before specifying he received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which is a single-dose shot. “That’s the food stamps of vaccines,” he said, joking that he “used” his “celebrity” to be one of the first to get the vaccine.
“I was like, ‘Step aside, Betty White, I did Pootie Tang. Step aside, old people.’ I was like Billy Zane on the Titanic. Leo [DiCaprio] died. Billy Zane lived to see another day. I don’t want to be Leo at the bottom of the ocean. Billy Zane got another woman after that thing. In reality, you want to be Leo — but not in that movie.” Watch the appearance inside.
We wish Chris Rock a speedy recovery.
