Kevin Hart: “STOP THE FALSE NARRATIVE IT’S NOT ABOUT BLACK WOMEN”!
Recently, Kevin weighed in on cancel culture, and he also felt NBC was disrespectful using Usain Bolt and now he is being criticized for a joke about his daughter that was part of his new Netflix special, a 1 hour comedy that has rubbed black women the wrong way.
See, Kevin was making an observational joke about his 15-year-old daughter and, of course, black women around the nation are up in arms at his comment. See, Hart said that his daughter was having “hoe-ish ways” flirting with many guys in school which has resulted in Black women claiming that it is belittling them.
Well, the back lash has forced Kevin Hart to defend what he said and to set the record straight. Read on for more on Kevin Hart and the backlash from BLACK WOMEN…

CelebnMusic247.com reports that comedian Kevin Hart hopped on Instagram to address the scrutiny and backlash he’s received for joining a live Clubhouse chat room earlier this week titled “Is Kevin Hart funny??” and engaging with dozens of real people on the subject.
The reason the group was started in the first place is because of Kevin Hart’s new comedy special, “Zero F***s Given,” in which at one point he jokes about his 15-year-old daughter, saying he’s already seeing “hoe activity” from her.
Kevin states “stop with the false narrative, it was never about black women!”
That didn’t sit well with many women since they feel that little girls look up to their fathers to defend them, not call them hoes — not even jokingly.
Hart was not well received by Black women as it raised eyebrows, and folks on Clubhouse decided to have an honest dialogue about whether he was promoting, wittingly or unwittingly, the degradation of Black women by evoking a trope about none other than his own kid, who’s still a minor.
Whelp, Kevin caught wind of the Clubhouse chat room and joined himself — and part of that conversation was captured by a third party and posted online. It looks like this thing went at least 15 minutes, if not more, and there’s a lot of voices in the room … sometimes all talking at once or over one another at various points.
It got so bad in the Clubhouse that it became a sort of gender feud men against women about Kevin being right or wrong about his joke.
On one hand Kevin’s male fans have a tendency to shut down, write off and silence Black women who criticize Kevin whatsoever … which they felt was part of a toxic culture he perpetuates.
Of course women did NOT agree at all.
Here is Kevin’s response and it’s pretty clear he saw it as a constructive conversation with actual people who had different viewpoints on him and his comedy. He insists the narrative that the whole Clubhouse chat was aimed at Black women or meant to pit him against Black women is completely false.
Though it seems like Kevin liked talking it out with people … but just didn’t enjoy the analysis that followed — much of which was critical of him and his supporters.
In addition, Kevin also touches on why he got in on the Clubhouse chat to begin with, and says the pandemic has forced his hand in getting creative for marketing and promotion.
