Chris Rock has tested positive for Covid-19 and is urging his followers to get vaccinated.
The stand-up comedian announced the news on Twitter on Sunday and insinuated that his symptoms are on the more severe side.
“Hey guys I just found out I have COVID, trust me you don’t want this,” Rock tweeted. “Get vaccinated.”
Many fans responded to the “Grown Ups” star’s tweet with well wishes, but some wondered if he hadn’t been vaccinated despite advocating for it; however, in May, Rock joked on “The Tonight Show” that he cut the vaccination line in order to receive the jab.
“I’m two-shots Rock, that’s what they call me,” the “Tamborine” comedian quipped, before specifying he received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which is a single-dose jab. “That’s the food stamps of vaccines.”
Seemingly joking, Rock quipped that he “used” his “celebrity” to be one of the first to get the vaccine.
