Chris Rock took a swipe at Meghan Markle during his most recent Netflix special, saying some of her experiences are just ‘in-law s**t’.

Rock’s Selective Outrage was broadcast live on Netflix on Saturday where he cracked jokes about all manner of subjects, including the Kardashians, LuluLemon, and, of course, the now infamous Oscar slap. You can see his jokes about Meghan and Harry here:

Rock also took aim at the Duchess of Sussex and the comments she made during her interview with Oprah.

For those who don’t remember, a devastated Meghan told Oprah that when she was pregnant a senior royal had raised ‘concerns’ about ‘how dark’ her and husband Harry’s child would be.

During his show, Rock said: “Like who is this girl Meghan Markle? Seems like a nice lady – just complaining. Like didn’t she hit the light-skinned lottery?”

He then moved onto the Oprah interview, saying: “You didn’t google these mother**kers?

“What the f**k is she talking about she didn’t know? It’s the royal family. They’re the original racists. They invented colonialism. They are the OG’s of racism. They’re the Sugarhill Gang of racism.”

He continued: “Some of that s*** she went through was not racism; it was just some in-law s***.

“Sometimes, it’s just some in-law s*** because she’s complaining, I’m like ‘What the f*** is she talking about?’

“’Oprah, they’re so racist they wanted to know how brown the baby was going to be’ - I’m like, ‘That’s not racist, because even Black people want to know how brown the baby going to be.’”

Rock then included a jibe about the Kardashian clan, adding: “Meghan Markle, I know the dilemma. I’m like, ‘If you Black and you wanted to be accepted by your white in-laws then you need to marry a Kardashian because they accept everybody.’”

In the explosive 2021 Oprah interview, Meghan revealed that her son Archie wasn’t given the title of prince at birth.

"Do you think it's because of his race?" Oprah asked.

To which Meghan replied: "I can give you an honest answer. In those months when I was pregnant, all around the same time we have in tandem the conversation of he won't be given security, he won't be given a title, and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he was born."

"Who was having that conversation with you? What?" asked a visibly shocked Oprah.

"So, um... there are several conversations about it with Harry," Meghan responded.

"About how dark your baby is going to be?" followed up Oprah.

"Potentially, and what that would mean or look like," she explained. "It was relayed to me from Harry. Those were conversations that family had with him."
