Kevin Hart Responds To Backlash For Supporting Jussie Smollett 😳

Over the past couple of days, several celebrities have given their support to actor, Jussie Smollett, after the alleged racist and homophobic attack on him. One such celebrity is comedian, Kevin Hart, and let’s just say that not everyone is happy about it.

Kevin tweeted out a very encouraging message to Jussie after learning of the attack saying, “Sending prayers your way @jussiesmollett ….This is unbelievably sad. Why are we going backwards….this is disgusting. We as people have to do better. WTF is going on in the world???? Why…”

Though it seemed like a genuine gesture, the “Upside” actor received a lot of criticism reminding him of his past homophobic jokes, and needless to say it may have ‘triggered’ him.
Hart shot back at one reply in particular that said,“Your funniest joke congrats”, with “I stand with a man in his time of hurt and need by giving him heart felt support and u take the time to harp on my 10yr past that I have apologized about and moved on from by being a better person. Do you want change? If so I am an example of what u want people to do… CHANGE!”

Wow! It seems that 39 year-old simply can’t catch a break. What do you guys think about all of this? 🤔
