  1. Hebrews 13: 5-6 ” Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?”

  2. I’ve always wondered what Everybody Hates Chris would look like if they had a serial killer in it.

  3. This will be great because Chris will make the show full of black people and it’ll be almost like a black Tyler Perry song movie because black directors and black producers put mostly black people in their movies even though they’re only 13% of the population. This is great news the more black people in movies then America will be a better place to live.

  4. Why does it need a reboot??? Don’t they make sequels every year? Just make another one for Halloween like they always do.

  5. DON’T EVER LET PEOPLE KEEP YOU IN A πŸ“¦ OF “*THEY SHOULD ONLY DO THIS OR THEY SHOULDN’T DO THAT*” ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY REALLY DON’T KNOW WHAT GOD HAS GIFTED YOU TO DO!! JUST LIKE AT HOW MANY DIFFERENT THINGS EDDIE MURPHY DID FROM ACTING TO WRITING TO DIRECTING & EVEN SINGING WHEN THAT WASN’T EVEN NORMAL FOR ANY COMEDIAN TO DO & ALL WERE VERY SUCCESSFUL TOO!!βœŠπŸ˜ŽπŸ’―πŸ’ͺβœŒπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  6. @0:41 Say what you really mean bruh (he don’t wanna see Kevin Hart do comedy) 🀣🀣🀣

  7. Kevin Smith did it with Red State which was good, Peele did it with Get Out and US , now Twilight Zone then Candyman I feel Chris can do Saw πŸ€”

  8. lmao TMZ is weighing in on horror films now? The phrase ‘stay in your lane’ has never been more appropriate.
