Watch: Michael Jordan's Salty After Being Roasted by Kevin Hart

Here's the comedian's hilarious story.

Published June 15, 2016

What's the matter, Michael Jordan? You can't take a joke?

Well, apparently not.

On Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday night, Kevin Hart proceeded to tell a story about how MJ might still be upset with him.

"I pissed Mike off!" Hart told Kimmel.

How? Well, as the story went, Hart said that he was invited by Jordan to host a charity event in Las Vegas and when he surveyed the crowd, he realized everyone in attendance was rather uppity.

That's when he locked eyes with Jordan and began roasting the NBA legend, first poking fun at his pants being so high — "past the legal limit for waist" — before unloading jokes about MJ's mustache looking like a thumb print. Ha!

Needless to say... the Hall of Famer and six-time NBA champion wasn't pleased in the least bit and let Hart know just that after the event was over.

“He shook my hand, and he squeezed it real hard and was like (gritting teeth), ‘You have a good day,’” Hart said.

Oh, wow. Somebody should have hit MJ with his own crying face meme. If there was ever an appropriate time to use it, that would have been it.

Check out Kevin's entire recollection of the story here.

We're in tears over Kevin saying that he'll tell Mike to "lose the 'tude" the next time they cross paths. Ha!

MJ should have just laughed it off. Come on, man... Kevin Hart is a comedian. This is what he does.
