Kevin Hart Responds To Critics Who Slammed His Son's 'Cowboys And Indians' Party For Being Racist

His comments might just make things worse.

Published November 28th

As the saying goes, ignorance is bliss, and it seems as Kevin Hart's nonchalant response to those who criticized him and his wife for throwing their toddler son a "Cowbodys and Indians"-themed party proves that he may live by such a mantra.

The comedian, who threw the blatantly culturally insensitive party for his son Kenzo's first birthday bash on Thanksgiving day, recently explained on his SiriusXM show, Straight From the Hart, that he found nothing wrong with the decision.

In response to critics who found the Native American-inspired clothing at the questionably themed soiree inappropriate and offensive, he said the backlash was just "dumb s**t" and shows "how stupid our world is becoming with opinions."

As a reminder, take a look at photos the couple posted from the event, below:

    In his unapologetic explanation, he stressed that, in his opinion, there was nothing malicious about the theme and attempted to justify the decision by pointing out that the NFL's Dallas Cowboys and the Washington Redskins played on national television that same day.

    Going on to ignore the widespread fact that many have expressed outrage for years regarding the Washington, D.C., team's name, he added that "Cowboys and Indians" is a game that has been played among children for generations, so there is no reason why anyone should be offended.
