Kevin Hart handled the petty comments with class.
The comedian went on a stand-up tirade about his fellow brother in funny:
“I’ve already proven that if the best they got in comedy is Kevin Hart— don’t you boo a Black man working hard, baby,” he said as the crowd ironically started to boo.
“Even if that n****’s a puppet, it’s not his fault. We don’t get mad. 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 Frog, be mad at Jim Henson. Don’t say, ‘F**k Donald Duck’ when you really mean, ‘F**k Walt Disney.’”
Wait, whet? Sounds like he’s sipping the haterade.
He continued, “I don’t care nothin’ ‘bout that happens to Kevin, I just wish him the best. I just know that that’s somebody’s hand is 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.”
Is that jealousy we smell in the air? The Cincinnati native took the rant a step farther by suggesting Hart used sexual favors to earn his platform:
“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. 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 right here to the end of Pimp Chronicles.”
Well that’s a loaded and searing statement.
However, Hart took the high road. Instead of clapping back, he used the beef to clap for other comedians who supported his path. Very classy, Kev!

Me & Dave Chappelle with our brother @chrisrock tonight at the Oscars. True professionals understand the importance of sticking together & supporting one another….at the end of the day we are comedians & there aren't many that make it to level that we have made it. But so many doors are opened from the success of one comedian & when you see those doors open you then have the opportunity to walk thru them….it's about helping one another not trying to tear each other down!!!! The insecure ones will never understand that "Support & encouragement" #Message #DopePic #Legendary
