Nobody’s perfect – not even celebrities. And Kevin Hart is tired of being judged by those unrealistic standards. He spoke on the subject of cancel culture in an IG Live interview with O Magazine. “We’re living in a time where we’re just expecting perfect, as if people don’t slip and fall down the steps, or everybody walks straight all the time. But you stumble,” Hart noted.
The diminutive comedian knows that firsthand. Not only did he get caught in a cheating scandal while his wife, Eniko, was pregnant with their first child, but he also walked away from a chance to host the Oscars after a controversial tweet surfaced from over 10 years ago. Although he apologized repeatedly, folks didn’t want to let it go.
The soon-to-be father of four went on to say, “We can’t be so persistent with the search to find and destroy. Although some things are warranted and I understand, it’s just us as people have got to be smart enough to go, ‘You know what, whatever has happened, has happened,’ but people deserve a chance to move on. Life isn’t over because people say it is, and that’s what’s been happening as of late. It’s like people determine when your end button is pushed, but that’s not how it works.”
