The comedian also apologized for those tweets, but now he’s offering up another message for his critics. Via Instagram, Hart posted a cryptic note relaying that he’s transforming backlash into motivation.
“People will throw stones at you. Don’t throw them back. Collect them all and build an empire,” the message reads.
Nick Cannon famously came to Kevin Hart’s defense after the infamous Tweets were leaked and pointed out how other celebrities tweeted controversial things but were never crucified (which is debatable). Other comics though, have also come to Hart’s defense, but wish he’d just let it all go and move on.
“In my best Strange’ voice ‘you shouldn’t have to blow your own hoooooorn’ The people rode for you. Don’t address it again. We got other s**t to do,” commented fellow “Plastic Cup Boyz” comedian Na’im Lynn.
What do you think? Should Kevin Hart move on and seek other opportunities? Let us know in the comment section below.
