Kevin Hart is still answering for a controversial joke he made during 2010’s Seriously Funny tour.
During the tour, the comedian said:
One of my biggest fears is my son growing up and being gay. That’s a fear. Keep in mind, I’m not homophobic. . . . Be happy. Do what you want to do. But me, as a heterosexual male, if I can prevent my son from being gay, I will.
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Kevin Hart opened up what many perceived as a ‘homophobic’ statement:
“It’s about my fear,” Hart told the magazine. “I’m thinking about what I did as a dad, did I do something wrong, and if I did, what was it? Not that I’m not gonna love my son or think about him any differently. The funny thing within that joke is it’s me getting mad at my son because of my own insecurities — I panicked. It has nothing to do with him, it’s about me. That’s the difference between bringing a joke across that’s well thought-out and saying something just to ruffle feathers.”
