Chris Rock Sticks Up for Farrah Fawcett


Chris Rock makes sure nobody forgets Farrah Fawcett died the same day as Michael Jackson.
Farrah Fawcett, seen here in 1975, died just hours before Michael Jackson in June 2009. Don’t forget Farrah!
As the web worked up a storm over the sixth anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death Thursday, Chris Rock gave some Twitter love to actress Farrah Fawcett, who — lest we forget — died the same day as the pop legend.
“Hey bitches 6 years ago I died too.,” the comedian deadpanned in a Tweet featuring the blonde bombshell’s picture. The tweet got more than 1,000 favorites by the day’s end.
Rock based his all-too-serious joke on the perpetual overshadowing of Fawcett’s death, which started from the very day it happened. The iconic “Charlie’s Angels” actress lost her battle to cancer, at 62, on the morning of June 25, 2009, in Santa Monica, Calif.
Just hours later, the 50-year-old Jackson died from an overdose of propofol in his Los Angeles home.
