If there’s one thing Chris Rock knows how to do, it’s humorously express himself about a controversial topic. According to his recent joke, it seems he’s not a fan of Kyrie Irving’s anti-vaxx stance.

On Wednesday night (Nov. 4), the comedian took the Brooklyn Steel stage to introduce rock band The Strokes ahead of their performance. Amid the introduction, he took the opportunity to poke fun at all those who haven’t received the COVID-19 shot.

“I haven’t seen any shows since COVID,” said Rock, who battled the virus back in September. “Has anybody been like, ‘Throw your mask in the air, and wave it like you just don’t care?’ Where’s my anti-vaxxers at? Where you at? You fucking dumb Kyrie motherfuckers.”

As previously reported by REVOLT, the Brooklyn Nets star is unvaccinated and has refused to comply with mandates that require the shot to play ball or enter indoor facilities.

“It’s not about being anti-vax or about being on one side or the other. It’s about being true to what feels good for me,” Irving explained while addressing the backlash he’s received. “I’m still uncertain about a lot of things, and that’s ok. If I’m going to be demonized about having more questions and taking my time to make a decision with my life, then that’s just what it is.”

Irving’s current stance on the COVID-19 vaccine has resulted in his temporary ban from the Barclays Center. Additionally, Nets officials will not allow him to practice and play with team members until he is vaccinated — a decision that anti-vaxxers have protested against. In his time away from the court, however, Kevin Durant revealed that Irving’s absence is felt.

“Yeah, we do miss Kyrie. We do,” he recently said during a post-game interview. “He’s a part of our team.”
