Kevin Hart has a lot to be thankful for!
He could have lost his life after being involved in a near-fatal car accident. While the actor is recovering, he’s also dealing with some backlash for comments he made about Lil Nas X coming out as gay.
During an episode of HBO’s Uninterrupted, Kevin Hart and Lil Nas X sat down for a discussion. Kevin asked him about his decision to announce that he’s gay.
Lil Nas X wanted to be honest with his fans and didn’t want them to think he was doing it for clout. He also expressed that it’s hard being a gay man in the black community. Kevin seemed to not understand why Lil Nas X could “hate” homosexuality and having to talk about it.
People slammed Kevin Hart for how he responded and for his past comments about not wanting his son to be gay. They also brought up the Oscars situation where Kevin Hart stepped down.
Kevin Hart acting like he doesn’t know why Lil Nas X would be scared to come out is like someone who stole the thing you lost helping you look for it. https://t.co/ZmfRNMktel

Mess. It’s why black male professional athletes don’t come out until after they retire. It’s why black communities coined the term down low. Please act like you know, when you know. #WednesdayWisdom pic.twitter.com/R65QKI9Abw

It was aggressive and Kev knows how our community feels about gay ppl so to say ppl don’t care about him being gay is false.
