Comedian Chris Rock, who has long spoken out about racial profiling, has used selfies to document being pulled over by police three times since February.

Most recently, Rock was pulled over early Tuesday, according to a picture Rock posted to his Twitter account of him in the driver’s seat of his car with a bright blue light shining in the rear window.  

"Stopped by the cops again, wish me luck," Rock wrote.  

Rock has previously posted selfies of him being pulled over on February 27, February 13, and one going back to April 18, 2014.  

"I'm not even driving," wrote Rock on February 13, accompanied by a picture of himself in the backseat with lights coming through the rear window.  

Rock and Jerry Seinfeld were pulled over for speeding in an episode of Seinfeld's “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” series in 2013.

"Now here's the crazy thing. If you weren't here, I'd be scared," Rock told Seinfeld. "Yeah, I'm famous - still black."

Chris Rock has not shied from talking about racial profiling in the past. In 2000, “The Chris Rock Show” hosted a mock training video called "How Not to Get Your *ss Kicked by the Police."

"We treat racism in this country like it's a style that America went through," Rock said in an interview with New York Magazine in November. "'Oh, that crazy thing we did. We were hanging black people.' We treat it like a fad instead of a disease that eradicates millions of people."
