Kevin Hart Responds To Katt Williams’ Industry Plant And Gatekeeper Claims Against Him

The comedian says, “It’s just entertainment.”

In case anyone was wondering, the epic battle of Kevin Hart vs. Katt Williams is still going on. Hart recently sat down with WSJ Magazine for their spring 2024 men’s fashion issue and was asked about his feud with Williams and Hart said, “It’s just entertainment. If that’s what he fuels himself off, God bless him. Good for him.”

It’s the “good for him” that says this beef is one-sided.

In Williams’ “Club Shay Shay” interview with Shannon Sharpe, heard around the world, the controversial comedian called Hart a Hollywood plant. He claimed Hart’s fame is because industry bigwigs placed him in a position for astronomical success rather than him working hard to get there. Williams even called it selling his soul as well as gatekeeping. “It’s a cabal, it’s a consortium,” Williams said of Kevin Hart’s career on “Club Shay Shay.”

Hart continued, “I hope he gets all that he needs and he wants, and I’m here cheering for him from afar."

Needless to say, these two won’t be in a film or group text together anytime soon. This is the one thing the two funny men can agree on is that Hart keeps his distance from Williams. On “Club Shay Shay,” Williams alleged that Hart refuses to be in the same room or building with him.

Hart said, “That’s my real energy. I really mean it!" he added. "That’s how happy and secure I am with my career and my life.”

Williams came for Hart’s supernova of a career, claiming, “For a five year period, every single movie that Kevin Hart did was a movie that had been on my desk that all I had said was 'Just can we take some of this step and fetching s--- out and then I can do it?' Williams alleged that Hart had a bad habit of snatching movie roles from him after Williams would ask for script revisions before signing on to a project–something he claims Hart won’t do.

During the “Club Shay Shay” interview, Williams said, "...Acting like I'm a bad person because I keep standing on my standards…it's interesting, but I wouldn't change it for the world - again, I'm on the winning side of these decisions."

What side would that put Kevin Hart on, according to Williams?
