Rebel Wilson’s VMA Police Brutality Jokes Not Pitch Perfect for Everyone

Rebel Wilson’s VMA Police Brutality Jokes Not Pitch Perfect for Everyone

August 31, 2015 – Even with a flashing Miley Cyrus, it was Rebel Wilson who caught flack when she appeared at the MTV Video Music Awards in a police uniform later revealing a “Fuck Tha Stripper Police” t-shirt. Her comedic monologue was a nod to the issue of police brutality and the #BlackLivesMatter movement.

Rebel Wilson quickly transitioned her commentary from the regular police to the stripper police:

“A lot of people have problem with the police, but I really hate police strippers. You guys know what I’m talking about. They come to your house, you think you’re getting arrested, and you just get a lap dance that is usually uninspired! I hired police stripper for my grandma’s 80th, and he wouldn’t even feel her up…. I hate this injustice, hence the shirt.”

Maybe too soon for many who took to Twitter to relay their displeasure:

But comics including Kurt Metzger quickly defended Wilson:

And from Metzger’s Facebook page:

“Yes Deray, police brutality ISNT funny. That’s why you make a joke. Why does no one get how jokes work??? You dont make jokes out of things   that are already funny. You make them out of pain.”
