Exclusive: Was Ron Isley Upset With Chris Tucker After Tax Joke?
One thing we learned from the BET Awards … Ron Isley has a sense of humor.
During the Awards show on Sunday night, Chris Tucker took a moment to poke fun at his own financial situation, joking that the IRS was making him do the BET Awards. “They back there right now counting my money and eating chicken,” Tucker joked. The host then went on to joke about Wesley Snipes and Ron Isley who both served jail time for tax evasion.
While some people thought the Rush Hour star’s joke was a little too personal, Isley was totally okay with it.
During a sit down interview with the “Contagious” singer to talk about his new album, set to drop on July 16, Isley exclusively told HipHollywood that he knew something was coming.
“I was cracking up over what the emcee was saying about Wesley Snipes,” the singer shared. “We had talked before that … and he (Tucker) said I got something I’m gonna say tomorrow. I didn’t know what it was, I thought that that was the funniest thing,” Ron laughed.
