Once again, some white folks are crying racism thanks to a joke comedian Leslie Jones recited during a stand-up routine in New York.

Jones seems to be calling out white people in Brooklyn by saying “If I see another 45-year-old white woman from Williamsburg saying ‘black lives matter,’ I’m going to punch you in the mouth.” She adds, “Stop doing that.”

According to Jones, the audience loved the bit at the venue, but people seemed to be in their feelings. Some folks accused Jones of racism while others, like celebrity blogger Perez Hilton,  believed Jones was “alienating” white allies. Check out some of Hilton’s exchange with Jones below:

Interesting how one joke about white people can put their ally-ship at risk. What do you think? Was Jone’s joke too much? Let us know in the comments below.
