Comedian Rebel Wilson Angers Many With Skit on Police Brutality at the 2015 VMAS

Rebel Wilson delivered a comedic bit about police brutality at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards.

The Pitch Perfect star while dressed on stage as a police officer, stripped off her uniform to reveal a shirt that said “F- Tha Police”.

Wilson, who was presenting the award for Best Hip-Hop video, started her joke by saying that “a lot of people have problems with the police,” suggesting to many that she was going to provide social commentary on police violence and the Black Lives Matter Movement.

Instead, the comedian launched a joke about how she “really hated police strippers” and that these cops, were the true bad police.

“You guys know what I’m talking about. They come to your house, you think you’re getting arrested, and you just get a lap dance that is usually uninspired”, Wilson said. “I hired police stripper for my grandma’s 80th, and he wouldn’t even feel her up. I hate this injustice, hence the shirt.”

The joke offended many viewers, who quickly expressed their disbelief on twitter:

Wilson went on to present the Best Hip-Hop video award to Nicki Minaj for “Anaconda”.
