Kevin Hart took to Twitter to defend his movies, after a person tweeted him and accused them of being stereotypical.

“When are black celebs like @KevinHart4real & @MarlonWayans gonna stop doing stereotypical movies?” @tashyonlaneigh asked.

 Hart then responded in a barrage of tweets, defending his ‘art’.

But was the person on Twitter right? Hart’s movies are always along the lines being the short, loud, black dude and buddy movies. Hell, in one of his most recent flops, he played a black guy who was helping a white guy get ‘tougher’ so he can cope with going to jail. 

Hart’s movies aren’t everyone’s top pick, and he’s definitely not above receiving criticism.

    The lie detector has determined this is a lie. Kevin Hart has been in stereotypical black movies/movies as a stereotypical role since 2004 beginning with the cinematic classic Soul Plane. Chile, bye.

      And that mess he did with Will Ferrell last year Get Hard. I caused me to roll my eyes.

      I watched that movie and I was just wondering why they thought this was ok. It made me think of a movie called Let’s Go to Prison where a rich white guy ends up in prison around a scary black man *rolls eyes*.

    I’m not a fan of “shuck n jive” comedy because I don’t think its genuine. There is a thin line between a stand-up comic and comic acting. In my opinion the only two black comedians that blended comedy the best were Richard Pryor and Eddie Murphy. To this day I can watch “48 hrs or Silver Streak and appreciate good genuine comedy and I can’t say the same about Kevin Harts movies. He’s trying too hard to be over the top and it comes off corny and silly to me.

      There are no more talented and funny actors like Richard Pryor or Eddie Murphy in his heyday.

    He’s on the coon list. This man’s career is all about stereotypes and jokes at black people’s expense. He’s one of those new black who thinks because he is liked by white people then it is okay and anyone who mentions otherwise problematic. Does this little shitbag see what is going on in his country yet has the balls to moan at about something that he is part of the problem.

  • Mary Burrell

    I don’t think he’s funny either.

    She’s not wrong. Everyone perceives black people as worthless and very often that includes black people themselves and it has to change. Tyler perry is problematic too, he hands black people like himself slapstick, ignorant and empty comedy but when offered a role in Ben affleck’s gone girl he knew to take extra acting lessons and give a riveting performance. It’s a taboo topic no one wants to talk about; black self-loathing. He knew to behave himself and put his best foot forward when acting alongside whites but when making movies for black audiences he dumbs them down, traffics stereotypes and piles on religious dogma.

      I was kind of impressed with Tyler Perry in Gone Girl he gave a decent performance and I was surprised.

      So he knows to clean up his act for the white folks.
