GILBERT Gottfried’s latest personal Instagram post was a show of support for fellow comedian and friend Chris Rock after actor Will Smith beat him at the Academy Awards.
The raspy-voiced comedian and actor, who died suddenly on Tuesday, captioned his latest post: “What’s the worst crime? Is Chris Rock physically assaulted or is Chris Rock telling a joke?”
He accompanied it with a picture of himself and Chris sitting together smiling.
