Kevin Hart caught some backlash when he made some rather interesting jokes about dark-skinned women, but the comedian says he knows better than to go there with the gay community.
He tells Playboy:
“I’m not a political guy. I don’t really deal with Democrats or Republicans. I don’t find that funny. And I don’t talk about the gay community, be it male or female. No thank you! It’s such a sensitive subject. I’ve seen comics get into serious trouble by joking about gay people. It’s too dangerous. Whatever you say, any joke you make about the gay community, it’s going to be misconstrued. It’s not worth it.”
He also took a moment to defend these infamous tweets about dark-skinned women:
“That was just me being silly on Twitter, playing on a trending topic. Some people were offended by it, but that’s always a risk with comedy. Nobody’s going to find everything funny. I didn’t feel I had to apologize for something that was misconstrued and taken out of context. I have no ill will toward women, not dark-skinned women, not light-skinned women. I was just being silly. I’m a comedian. Being silly is my job; it’s how I pay my bills.”
Well he said what we already knew. #shrugs
Now who said this on here? Someone said Kevin will gladly throw black women under a bus but would not dare try the same ish with the gays. Man they were spot on. I wish I could remember who it was.
It sounds like something The Truth would say.
Wow u knw that raggedy dude fr MTO? He surely gets around on there doesn’t he
Well he knows black women will ride with him until the wheels fall off. I mean look at how so many of us ran on here to defend him when he dogged out his wife. Sometimes I think we are way too loyal.
You said it all. We’re too loyal. There’s plenty of rappers, comedians and actors we should have stopped supporting along time ago but we never did. So they think they can say and do whatever.
Well can anyone blame him? He knows this younger generation of sisters will not hold him accountable for his disrespectful jokes and boycott him like the previous generations would. Ask Wesley Snipes. Instead they defend him for cheating on his wife and drag the wife for exposing him for the liar he is. I’ve even seen some sisters blame the wife for Kevin’s cheating.
I’m not even surprised. Kevin doesn’t fear us because he knows we won’t really move to boycott him. And he’s right.
Sometimes I wish he would shut the hell up. He talks too much.
I’ll be glad when his 15 minutes are up. He’s overrated and very disrespectful.
Those tweets weren’t even funny though. If you’re going to be offensive, at least be funny. LOL.
I just wish this little leprechaun would just stop talking. He’s already not funny and tries too hard. But the arrogance makes him even less tolerable.
I’m still waiting to laugh at this fool. He’s not funny.
Wait, so lemme get this straight! When he dogs us out, he’s just being “silly”. We’re tough, black broads, who just need to suck it up and stop being so sensitive. But he can’t do the same to gays, cuz they’re really sensitive and will not only cuss his as* out, BUT, maybe also damage his career? Okay, so, what he’s really saying is that we don’t have the power to do sh*t, so he could give a hot damn what we think about his antics?
I don’t know where the notion comes from that we won’t boycott him. Personally, I think the comments (and his defense) are offensive, and will gladly refrain from putting any of my money toward his projects. Even with the light-skinned/dark-skinned jokes he made, the endings to the jokes were more offensive to me than the jokes themselves….and that is what I have a problem with; in addition to his carelessness regarding how his jokes affect us (black women). It’s insensitive and unfortunately, it’s the way MOST people think…not just him. I don’t know what’s worse. The fact that they think nothing will be done about it, or the fact that nothing is actually done about it. Cold world indeed….
I don’t support Kevin or anything he does. Every time he speaks about black women, it’s offensive. There are better comedians out here anyway.
He really does talk too much in his interviews…
I can’t stand this short bastard.
Ok…..is he scared of saying something offensive cause he don’t want no secrets revealed? Cause it seems whenever these celebs say something or deny anything about the gay community, they get put on blast.
He does realize his daughter will grow up to be black woman right? Oh.
I’m really starting not to like this dude.
He’s very insensitive when it comes to black women. But I’m not surprised. Look how he treated his black wife.
You people are waaaaaay to freakin sensitive and have no sense of humor! Dam lighten up
Girl gone. Not everyone is a sheep and asleep like yourself. Don’t you have a Beyonce blog to go to?
