During an Atlanta stop on his Conspiracy Theory tour, Williams called out Hart for being a Hollywood puppet: “I’ve already proven that if the best they got in comedy is Kevin Hart than — don’t you boo a Black man working hard, baby. Even if that n****’s a puppet, it’s not his fault. We don’t get mad," he ranted. "Just because I’m better than some Black dudes doesn’t mean I’m better than no Black dudes. I’m saying if you want to be mad at Kermit the Frog, don’t be mad at Kermit the Front. Be mad at Jim Henson. Don’t say, ‘F**k, Donald Duck” when you really mean, ‘F**k Walt Disney.’"
He continued, “I don’t care nothing that happens to Kevin [Hart], I just wish him the best. I just know that that’s somebody’s hand stuck up that baby, you understand. Oh, we’re a puppet show, boo boo. Please believe it. You’re looking at the only n**** that ain’t.”
Williams didn't stop there. He went on to throw shade at Hart's success:
“So, since I’ve already officially proven to myself that I really am who Richard Pryor passed his torch to, and that I was able to do it without letting a man suck my d**k, or sucking a man’s d**k," he said. "I walked in with a virgin a**hole, I walked out with a virgin a**hole. I got the same soul today that I had when I did Pimp Chronicles all the way to the end of Pimp Chronicles.”
We doubt Kevin will stay silent about this for long... or maybe he'll just let his money do the talking? Either way, hopefully these two talented comedians will realize that we have enough laughs for both of them.
