Comedian Chris Rock shoved New York radio host Jason Mattera and wrestled his camera to the ground at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year when he questioned Rock about his comments about the Tea Party and racism.
Rock said in Esquire magazine, “When I see the Tea Party and all this stuff, it actually feels like racism’s almost over…They’re going crazy. They’re insane…”
Mattera is about to release a new book entitled “Hollywood Hypocrites: The Devastating Truth About Obama’s Biggest Backers”.
The video of the incident is being released on Mattera’s website to coincide with the book release.
Mattera posed and said he was a fan of Rock’s when he walked up to him at the film event and asked for a picture.
Then asked Rock “When you said the Tea Party was insane and racist–“, at which point Rock cuts him off before wrestling the camera away from Mattera.
