Earlier this week we told you about an “interesting” message comedian Kevin Hart had for black women, but recently the Think Like A Man Star says he has nothing but love for sistas and the offensive comic strip has nothing to do with him.
Hart took to Twitter and Facebook to address the comic strip that depicted black women dissing a nerdy looking black man, but hating on him later on when he became successful and chose to a woman woman. The cartoon caused a stir among many because it dabbled in the worst stereotypes about black women.
But Kevin Hart is right, he didn’t create the cartoon. It has been circulating on the web for a few months now (I’ve seen it and dismissed its ridiculousness). However, the comedian apparently posted the comic strip to his Facebook page along with the message “FIx yA Face” (but later deleted it), causing many to wonder why a man of his stature would take shots at black women, some of his most ardent supporters.
Let’s hope this was a terrible lapse in judgment or a misunderstanding, and the next time Kevin Hart, or any other celeb, thinks it’s a good idea to share something offensive, they’ll keep it to themselves.
