Chris Rock Jokingly Tells Obamas to Stay Away From Netflix

Chris Rock recently shared his thoughts on Barack and Michelle Obama’s Netflix deal, in which the former president and first lady will produce films and television shows. The comedian jokingly warned the power couple to stay away from the streaming business.

 

“I don’t want to live in a world where President Obama is worried about his Rotten Tomatoes score,” Rock told The Hollywood Reporter. “I want him above that at all times … make your money, but I don’t want [him] to be involved with that.”

Rock also offered an idea on an appropriate replacement.

“Send them over to Donald Glover. That’s what I’d do.”

 

After receiving minor backlash for his comments, the comic made it clear he was joking and wishes the Obamas nothing but the best in a now-deleted comment to radio personality Charlamagne Tha God via social media.
