Well it’s in the news so lets talk about it.
This post is in response to Chris Rock’s appearance on Jay Leno; Jay Leno: “It’s amazing to me that you mistreat a dog and you lose your career and go to jail for two years.”
Is in really jay? what should he have gotten? I’m sorry I forgot that if its animal abuse, you shouldn’t be punished because it’s just a dog after all! You sir are an Insensitive boorish Fool!
Chris Rock: “What the hell did Michael Vick do, man? A dog, a pit bull ain’t even a real dog. A pit bull, that’s the white stuff. Dogs are white mans best friend – dogs have never been good to black people.”
Really? Well Chris here’s a news flash for you since you seem to repeatedly show the world how uneducated and Ill mannered you truly are, There are many, repeat many service dogs in the world helping quote “Black People” and I’m pretty sure at least one of them is a Pit Bull!
Chris Rock was up for the role of Richard Pryor in a movie about his life, this is what Jennifer Pryor had to say:
Jennifer Pryor’s letter to Mr. Rock:
TO CHRIS ROCK: SO ironic that you are talking about your poor, scalding scalp, and how it burned from all those chemicals…when you are completely clueless when it comes to how those innoc…ent dogs suffered while being tortured by Michael Vick! We were on the front page of Variety today and the timing is unfortunate for it comes the same day I am forced to write this letter! Richard and I established Pryor’s Planet, a non-profit, before he passed, for the purpose of rescuing and rehabilitating homeless and abused or neglected dogs, so they can go into loving, forever homes! PRYOR’S PLANET is an all breed rescue: which means, we rescue everything from little white, fluffy dogs to Pitbulls. We currently have 40 dogs we are caring for while they await their forever homes. Among these 40 dogs, Pryor’s Planet has 7 Pitbulls (actually American Staffordshire Terriers), all of whom are receiving care and training while they await their forever homes, at great expense I might add! Each one is a sweet and affectionate dog who was mistreated, or dumped or neglected all because of their breed! These are sentient, thinking beings with real feelings. SOMEONE PUT THIS ON MY FACE BOOK PAGE THIS MORNING: Chris asks, “What did Vick do? Pit bulls aren’t real dogs anyway.” If he doesn’t understand at this point then I guess he never will. If you’re taking Vick’s side, it’s unforgivable. This is as bad as if a white guy on a 50’s talk show defended killing a black man. “I mean, it’s not like he’s a real human. What did he do?” Regarding those comments Chris: “What did Michael Vick do? Pitbulls aren’t even real dogs!” What Michael Vick did was torture, drown, electrocute and murder several dogs all for fun and for profit! He went to prison for FELONY ANIMAL CRUELTY! That’s what he did! Because of your insensitive and ignorant remarks that you made on The Jay Leno Show,The David Letterman show and various public forums and websites; I have notified my attorney and Bill Condon directly that I don’t want you, Chris Rock, associated with the Richard Pryor Bio Pic—UNLESS, you find a way to retract and apologize for these comments in some public way. Clearly this is part of your latest stand-up routine which frankly, would not make Richard laugh! Richard knew you and I know you, Chris, you are not from the streets, nor are you a country bumkin…so to whom are you trying to appeal with these outrageous remarks? These type of comments only foment and encourage abuse and misunderstanding of this breed as well as actual dog fighting. Kind of like Rush Limbaugh does for the crazy right! Do you want to become the Rush Limbaugh to the rescue community? I have personally been involved in saving Pits from fight rings in Texas and California and in fact have one in my personal pack who was used as a ‘bait dog’ in a fight ring…a sweet, young puppy who is now a sweet adult dog! Outraged and hurt, Jennifer Lee Pryor.
