“Stopped by the cops again wish me luck,” is what started it all. The caption was attached to an Instagram photo posted by Chris Rock, who says that over the course of seven weeks, police pulled him over on three separate occasions. In comes former Grey’s Anatomy actor, Isaiah Washington who advised that Rock go a little more subtle with his vehicle selection. Washington tweeted out that because of driving while black, police frequently stopped him as well, which is why, “I sold my $90,000.00 Mercedes G500 and bought 3 Prius’s,” he writes. Washington tells Rock that he should “adapt” to the circumstances. Hmm, yeah no.
Since fans attacked Washington for his unsolicited advice, he stopped by ‘CNN Tonight’ to talk to Don Lemon about what it’s like to be profiled while d.w.b. and what he really means about Rock adapting.
