LOS ANGELES - Heym we all know funny man Chris Rock likes to tell it like it is, but now it looks like Rock's on stage art is imitating real life.

Rock took to Twitter to post selfies showing his run-ins with the cops not once, not twice, but three times in two months.

Hey, maybe he's on to something: #PulledOverSelfie.

But it seems being racially profiled while driving has been a topic of conversation for rock for some time now.

In a segment of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee hosted by Jerry Seinfeld, the two get pulled over and Rock can't help but be nervous.

"Now here's the crazy thing, if you weren't here I'd be scared," Rock told Seinfeld. "It would be such a better episode if he pulls us over and beats the [bleep] out of me."

Rock has yet to speak publicly about why the cops actually stopped him, but his Twitter followers are making their voices heard.

Shortly after his last tweet, fans shared their support with tweets like "I applaud @chrisrock for his racial profiling selfies. It’s a powerful statement."

But one bit of advice in particular lit up social media. Actor Isaiah Washington urged Rock to "#Adapt" to avoid racial profiling.

"I sold my $90,000.00 Mercedes G500 and bought 3 Prius's, because I got tired of being pulled over by Police," Washington tweeted.

Some saw that as a sell-out, saying Rock shouldn't have to take steps others might not have to as a way to avoid being pulled over.

"Let me guess..you also make sure your pants are pulled up as well?." Twitter user YeshaCallahan posted.

Appearing on CNN, Washington defended the tweet, saying he wanted to "excite a conversation."
