Comedian Kevin Hart is quickly becoming known for checking his critics on social media, and it appears he has no plans on stopping anytime soon.
In fact, Kevin has snapped back at those who label his girlfriend Eniko Parrish as a gold digger, and he used his Twitter account to slam his ex-wife for accusing him of sleeping with his current girlfriend while they were married.
But now the box office heavyweight is responding to those who believe he may be a sellout.
VLAD TV reports:
The Twitter under the station, ‘BRNETWORK’ says that the comedian gives into stereotypes of African Americans in his films, and chooses money over principle when it comes to making quality films.
“No I differentiate b/t telling Kevin Hart to do better and Black Idiots who want his favor attacking me for doing so.” he tweeted as a defense for his views on Hart.
Hart responded to the conversation with humor.
“Lmfao @RBRNETWORK is the only real brother on his network!!! You’re the last black panther man…Good luck with ur movement.”
“Yes I’m contributing to change because Kevin now is aware he can and will do better.” the user responded.
Things got even more heated when another Twitter user joined in on the debate and the comedian was slammed for cross dressing in past roles:
The exchanges didn’t end there. Another user ‘KINGRICH_MH’ gave his insight on Hart and his films.
“Like thats all you got is money huh? Smh we know thats all you got cause you ain’t got no morals.” he tweeted. He also accused the actor of ruining the culture by cross dressing in his films.
“Damn dawg @KevinHart4real we can work this out if you just keep it real wit us you crossdressed to get some money lil n****”
Hart proceeded to roast the user in a slew of Twitter responses.
“Quick history lesson @KINGRICH_MH …”Martin Lawrence, Jamie Foxx, Eddie Murphy, Richard Pryor…Jim Carrey, Damon Wayans, Robin Williams, I can keep going if u like…they are all legends who wore a Dress….” he tweeted.
The truth hurts.
Sellout? I don’t know but I will say I cringed during Ride Along when he broke up that fight between whose white students and said white people don’t fight as if we’re the only race who fights.
You read my mind!
That part made me uncomfortable too and it was the one scene they kept showing when they were promoting the movie. I still liked the movie (love me some Ice Cube lol) but I can kind of see why someone would think Kevin is a sellout. That on top of his whole dark skinned comments makes the argument this person had against him strong.
That part was unnecessary but the white people in the theater loved it. I wanted to punch Kevin in the face for that one.
Another celebrity who still doesn’t seem to understand responding to people on Twitter is a waste of time. At the end of the day, no matter what you say in response they will still think the worst about you. So why even respond at all?
Kevin needs to learn how to take criticism and negativity. It’s part of the game.
Didn’t Dave Chappelle say one of the reasons he quit his show was because Comedy Central wanted him to put on a dress?
He sure did.
Kevin does have sellout tendencies. But I’m learning that a lot of people do. Even those who aren’t famous. Money talks man.
Preach! And don’t get me started on the natural hair community (bloggers and companies). Most of them are sellouts!
But he is a sellout. He likes to throw black people under a bus and say it’s just jokes. But it’s not.
People with no lives stay angry on Twitter.
Is he trying to be sexy in this picture? 0_o
A hit dog will holler.
Kevin definitely suffers from the Napoleon Complex.
