Kevin Hart should be given a chance to apologize for what he wrote on Twitter and then delete those offending “jokes.”
What we have going on here is an effort to hold people accountable for things that happened nearly ten years ago on a platform that was never supposed to be an authoritative archive of insensitive stupid shit.
Hart’s comments (some of which are depicted above) come with date stamps that clearly show that he was playing around in the early days of Twitter with offensive material designed to increase the number of people following him and gain some laughs from people who should have clearly known better. Why there wasn’t anyone around helping Hart clean up his act is beyond comprehension.
But, here’s the thing—you shouldn’t use this terrible material against him in the present day, not unless you give him a chance to atone and clean it up. I watched what happened with James Gunn and I realized what the scam was here. This is how conservative trolls take people down and it’s wrong.
