Michael Jackson's Nephew Trashes 'Bully' Chris Rock For Using Family As 'Punching Bags'

Michael Jackson's nephew Taj said he has reached a breaking point with Chris Rock, accusing the comedian of being a "bully" and using his famous family as "punching bags" for a laugh.

Advertisement has learned about Taj's latest Twitter post, in which he referenced quips made in the newly released Netflix live special Chris Rock: Selective Outrage.

“Chris Rock has used my family as punching bags for his entire career.

Yet I am supposed to feel bad for him getting slapped and humiliated on the Oscars.

After seeing a new clip of him attacking my dead uncle in the first minutes of his “Retaliation-I’m still relevant”special, I have 3 things to say.

  1. What did my family ever do to you to warrant these decades of harassment and your constant bullying disguise as jokes?
  2. Just because you were bullied early on in life doesn’t give you the excuse to bully others now.
  3. Thank you Will Smith,” he tweeted.

Rock went into his jokes about the King Of Pop after explaining how he is all for "social justice" and marginalised people getting their rights, adding that he does, however, take personal issue with "the selective outrage" that he's noticed amongst the masses.

"You know what I'm talking about! One person does something and gets canceled, and somebody else does the exact same thing … Nothing!" he continued.

"Like the kind of people that play Michael Jackson songs, but won't play R. Kelly," Rock exclaimed. "Same crime! One of 'em just got better songs. I play [Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'] and it's a party, but I play Bump and Grind and you an activist."

MJ was repeatedly accused of child molestation over the years, but was not convicted. A jury deliberated for 30 hours before acquitting the music icon in a molestation case back in 2005.

The Billie Jean hitmaker died in 2009 at age 50, and the sexual abuse claims have continued.

Celebrity choreographer Wade Robson also sued in 2013, claiming that Michael abused him for nearly a decade, but the judge dismissed it, ruling that MJ's estate and the companies it controls are not liable for his alleged childhood sexual abuse.
