Comedian Chris Rock reveals he has Covid and urges fans to get jabbed saying 'you don't want this'

September 19, 2021

COMEDIAN Chris Rock has urged his fans to get the Covid-19 vaccine after revealing he is suffering from the virus.

The Saturday Night Live star took to social media to tell fans they "do not want" to catch the coronavirus and told them to "get vaccinated".


Chris, 56, revealed to his Twitter following that he had tested positive for the virus and appeared to be suffering from nasty symptoms.

He wrote to fans, who have since liked the post over 20,000 times: "I just found out I have COVID, trust me you don’t want this. Get vaccinated."

Chris' fans immediately headed to the comments section to wish him better, and support his plight to get other people fully jabbed.

" I truly hope you get over this quickly and thank you for being on the right side of science.  The vaccine does save lives," one fan wrote.

Another chimed in: "You are so right about that. It has kicked me hard. I’m better but the cough is still awful and still no taste or smell. I’m fully vaccinated."

The comedian previously revealed he had been vaccinated against the virus during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in May.

He told talkshow host Jimmy that he had received the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, saying: "I'm two-shots Rock, that's what they call me."

Chris also told CBS Sunday Morning's Gayle King that he couldn't wait to get the vaccine when it was first approved for public use.

"I'm gonna put it this way — Do I take Tylenol when I get a headache? Yes," the comedian said in defence of the vaccination.

"Do I know what's in Tylenol? I don't know what's in Tylenol. I just know my headache's gone. Do I know what's in a Big Mac, Gayle? No. I just know it's delicious." 

Chris was last spotted in New York earlier this month alongside his friend, comedian David Chappelle – as they both went mask free.

The comedian is best known for his stand up shows, including Saturday Night Live, and his TV series Everybody Hates Chris. 

He is one of many American stars who have come down with the virus in recent months, as talkshow host Wendy Williams opened up about her battle.

The TV show host has since been rushed to the hospital for “psychiatric issues” – amid fears she will be the ‘the next Whitney Houston’.

Speaking exclusively with The Sun, a show staffer said: “If this continues, it’s going to be another Whitney Houston situation.” 

The Wendy Williams Show source added that part of the problem is that when it comes to issues with the 57-year-old host and her health, “Everybody's an enabler, and they don’t want to lose their job."  

They added: “No one can tell her no. People are afraid to speak up.”  

On Thursday, a source told Page Six Wendy is lonely as she continues to struggle with her health. 

The insider shared: "It has been a very difficult time for Wendy. She’s a single woman with very few friends. She lost her marriage, her mom, and is living alone. There is a lot on her plate.” 

The post stated: “While continuing her health evaluations, Wendy has tested positive for a breakthrough case of COVID-19.”
