Chris Rock Roasts Oprah: “She’s So Rich, China Owes Her Money”

On the CBS broadcast of the 33rd annual Kennedy Center Honors, Oprah Winfrey was one of the honorees to receive recognition from her fellow celebrities. Oprah pal John Travolta and Barbara Walters provided some harmless remarks, but luckily comedian Chris Rock arrived on the scene to offer some uncomfortably hilarious jabs at both the “most powerful person in the world” and the guy sitting next to her (Barack Obama).

While making fun of Oprah always seems amusing (as Bill Maher recently demonstrated), it’s particularly exciting watching it be done to her face. Rock joked about how Oprah got Obama his job and also about how rich she is, claiming “she’s so rich, China owes her money!”

Unfortunately, just when Rock gets warmed up, making a sex joke about Oprah and fellow honoree Paul McCartney, out rushed Travolta and Walters to end the fun.
