Chris Rock said on Sunday morning that he just 'found out' that he has contracted Covid-19
The stand-up comedian who grew up in the Bedford-Stuyvesant of Brooklyn, New York took to social media to tells his fans 'trust me you don't want this.'
And the 56-year-old Grown Up actor added that his followers should be careful and get the jab as he said, 'Get vaccinated.'
Rock last worked on a David O Russell film this year with Anya Taylor-Joy, Rami Malek and Margot Robbie.
And he was last seen last week in New York City with his friend, comedian David Chappelle. They were laughing and talking on the street as both went mask free.
The star is best known for his stand up shows and his TV series Everybody Hates Chris.
Chris is just one of the many stars who have tested positive for COVID-19.
Most recently talk show host Wendy Williams shared she has come down with the virus and is delayed the debut of her next season of her show because of it.
She was seen wearing socks and no shoes recently on a NYC street as she sought treatment.
The star, 57, said she also has ongoing health issues which may complicated her recovery.

Tom Brady also said that after he won the Super Bowl he came down with COVID-19.
The football player told the Tampa Bay Times earlier this year: 'And I think [COVID-19] going to be challenging this year.
'I actually think it's going to play more of a factor this year than last year, just because of the way what we're doing now and what the stadium is going to look like and what the travel is going to look like and the people in the building and the fans.'

Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson were some of the first stars to admit they had come down with COVID-19 very early on.
Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley of KISS also had it, as did Hilary Duff, Khloe Kardashian, Melissa Joan Hart, Drake and Reba McEntire and Rex Linn.
Reba said in August of this year, 'It's not fun to get this. I did get it. Rex and I got it and it's not fun. You don't feel good. We were both vaccinated and we still got it, so stay safe, stay home, and be protected the best you can.'
Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
Most people infected with the virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment. However, some will become seriously ill and require medical attention. Older people and those with underlying medical conditions like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, or cancer are more likely to develop serious illness. Anyone can get sick with COVID-19 and become seriously ill or die at any age.
The best way to prevent and slow down transmission is to be well informed about the disease and how the virus spreads. Protect yourself and others from infection by staying at least 1 metre apart from others, wearing a properly fitted mask, and washing your hands or using an alcohol-based rub frequently. Get vaccinated when it’s your turn and follow local guidance.
The virus can spread from an infected person’s mouth or nose in small liquid particles when they cough, sneeze, speak, sing or breathe. These particles range from larger respiratory droplets to smaller aerosols.
It is important to practice respiratory etiquette, for example by coughing into a flexed elbow, and to stay home and self-isolate until you recover if you feel unwell.
