Kevin Hart Responds To Backlash Over Supporting Ellen Degeneres
Kevin Hart recently responded to the criticism that the comedian and actor has received for supporting his friend Ellen Degeneres. “Man, this social media s— is getting out of hand,” Hard said in a video on Instagram.
“It is truly getting out of hand. From showing support to a friend. You know you get a f—ing roar of frustration from so many. Phone going off the f—ing hook. I’m a friend. As a friend, if I have a friend in trouble ever, I’mma do my best to be there for them.”
Hart also went on to say that a lot of people asked him if he was there for his friend, Nick Cannon when he was recently fired. “Cause you didn’t see it means that I wasn’t there for Nick?” Hard said.
“Nick was over my house ever gotdamn day when he went through his s—. I was the one that called the president of the gotdamn studios and reached out to so many to see what we could do to find a solution.”
“When did we lose sight of reality? It’s a f—ed up time, man,” Hart continued. “It’s a f—ed up time that we’re living in. People are forgetting how to be people. People are now programs. F—! When did we get here?”
“Praying. Praying for a better place. Praying for a better understanding,” Hard said. “People go through s—. It happens. It’s life. All I can say is that when they do if you’re on the side of that individual, your job is to try to be a support system. 2020!”
Earlier this week, Kevin Hart took to Instagram and shared a photograph of himself with Degeneres and talked about how it was “crazy” to witness his friend go through what she’s going through “publicly.”
“It’s crazy to see my friend go thru what she’s going thru publicly. I have known Ellen for years and I can honestly say that she’s one of the dopest people on the f—ing planet. She has treated my family and my team with love and respect from day 1,” Hart wrote in his Instagram post.
“The internet has become a crazy world of negativity….we are falling in love with peoples downfall. It’s honestly sad…When did we get here? I stand by the ones that I know and that I love.”
“Looking forward to the future where we get back to loving one another….this hate s— has to stop. Hopefully, it goes out of style soon….This post is not meant to disregard the feelings of others and their experiences….It’s simply to show what my experiences have been with my friend. Love you for life Ellen,” Hart concluded.
