(PCM) Comedian Chris Rock has the Twitter world up in arms today after he posted the following message on his account:
First Paul walker now Nelson Mandela so sad were losing all our leaders .

Many are claiming that Rock went too far with the tweet and it has even reportedly earned him a few death threats, we are guessing from people that are angered by the comparison. Personally, I don’t see anything wrong with the tweet as he is portraying both Mandela and Walker as leaders in our world, with neither being cast in any type of negative light.
This is a situation that yet again can get chalked up to the incredibly thin skin of our society these days, it is almost as if people can not wait to get themselves all roweled up over an innocent comment.
What do you think? Did Chris Rock go too far?
