Kevin Hart is having the career of a lifetime considering the comedian keeps getting movie roles and has a successful show on BET, but between his ex-wife accusing him of cheating on her with his current girlfriend and the backlash he still receives for tweets about dark-skinned women, it’s hard for him to escape controversy.
The other day an interview with Playboy went viral and many felt the comedian basically said in so many words that he feels the gay community is off limits when it comes to his jokes but black women are fair game.
It didn’t take long for people to flood his mentions on Twitter but Kevin had a few words for anyone who has a problem with his interview (read tweets from bottom to top):
If he’s ignoring the negativity, why did he even tweet anything?
I wish this oompa loompa would shut the f-ck up. Nobody has to make up sh-t when the words actually came out of his mouth. He knows not to try the gays because they will kill his career. He doesn’t think black women have the same power. And he’s not the only one who thinks that way. Look at 95% of the rappers out now. They will dog black women out all day long but they won’t ever say anything negative about gays.
LOL! He’s pressed because he got dragged on Twitter! I don’t know about everyone else, but he won’t get another dime out of me.
Thank You! I’m NO LONGER supporting kevin hart, and any other celebrity who disrespect black women, I been cut off Lil wayne too, hell, almost all the rappers are dead to me.
He’s going really hard for tweets that weren’t even funny. It’s a shame a “comedian” has to use issues in the black community such as complexion issues for retweets, He should sit down and watch works from the legends. They were intelligent enough to make comedy out of real issues. Kevin doesn’t have the intellect and has to rely on slapstick comedy and it’s lame.
I’m so tired of him. I’d at least respect if he apologized for offending anyone, but he won’t do that. It’s like he really doesn’t care how black women feel. That is what makes him look bad.
LOL! He doesn’t care about what black women feel. He’s made that obvious in multiple interviews. But people will keep on supporting him and seeing his movies though. That’s the saddest part of it all.
The more success Kevin gets the more of an a-shole he becomes. He needs to get knocked down a few notches maybe his attitude will become better.
I can’t help but think of what his mom would say if she was still alive. I doubt she would be okay with this.
Wow. He’s really cocky. Welp, I hope he realizes that a comedian’s success is very short lived nowadays. Hot today, forgotten about tomorrow.
He’s not even funny though. Why is he so arrogant?
Where is Dave Chappelle when you need him?
Right. How did we go from a comedian willing to walk away from millions because he didn’t want to throw his people under a bus to a comedian who throws his people under a bus for free on Twitter? Chile…
But this is negativity that he created! There was nothing positive about those tweets! But now he wants to pretend he’s holier than thou? Ugh! I’m over him.
I wanted to see Think Like A Man Too but if he keeps on acting like this, I will have to change my mind.
Damn he has no chill. What is his problem? Just admit you were wrong and keep it moving. The more he defends it, the more people he turns off.
Now there are times when I feel people are hating on a celeb, but this is not one of them. Kevin no one is hating on you. We’re not angry that you’re happy and doing well. But as a black man who married a black woman, has black children and had a black mother (may she rest in peace), you have to understand the importance of your platform. Use it to uplift your people, not tear us down. I feel like he’s toxic to the black community. He won’t last long if he keeps this up.
Never piss off the people that helped you get where you are today.
And this is exactly what he’s doing!!!!
This is one topic he needs to stop talking about if he’s not going to take ownership for being offensive.
I see Kevin doesn’t really like to admit when he’s wrong. Not only will he not admit that he cheated on his wife with Eniko but he won’t even admit that his tweets were just in bad taste. He’s very prideful and it may end up being his downfall.
He’s overrated and annoying.
Are Kevin’s arms long enough to clap back at anything?
Damn he really thinks he can’t fall off. :-/
I can’t stand this leprechaun.
I feel black women as a whole should boycott Kevin Hart! Let’s start an online petition. I promise that would bring his pride and arrogance down to reality!
