Comic actor Chris Rock has launched a furious attack on the indecency craze sweeping America, labelling the furore "sad".

The sharp-tongued comedian has criticised the harsh laws that have taken controversial radio DJ Howard Stern off the air, and believes America overreacted to Janet Jackson's recent nipple flashing stunt at the SUPER BOWL.

Rock says, "It's really sad what's going on. Indecency should be in the context of... if you're watching a children's show and a breast pops out, that's indecent.

"If you're listening to Howard Stern, and masturbation comes up, it's in the context of Howard Stern, and not (indecent).

"I'm kind of tired of it, to tell you the truth."
