Kevin Hart was recently announced as a presenter for this year’s Oscar awards which coincidentally has no black actors as nominees. However, being tapped by the Academy to be a presenter shows the extent of his power and success in Hollywood.
The past couple of years have been a whirlwind for the comedian who’s gone from stints at open mic nights to internationally selling out stadiums. That’s in addition to his success at the box office with films such as “Think Like A Man” and “Ride Along” (1&2). Oprah even interviewed Kevin on an episode of “Oprah Prime” which is the ultimate validation that HE HAS ARRIVED!
Regardless of the 36-year-old’s accomplishments, he recently went on a Twitter rant (it was more like a PSA in comparison to Kanye’s rant) where he said he didn’t want his films to be in the category of “Black Movies”.
After @TaShyon Laneigh asked: “When are black celebs like @KevinHart4real & @MarlonWayans gonna stop doing stereotypical movies?” Kevin took time out of his busy schedule to GO IN! #PoorLittleTinkTink
