As the world’s highest-earning stand-up comedian, Kevin Hart is no stranger to criticism. He recently told the Sunday Times that he’s “only had two good movie reviews” out of over 60 films. “It doesn’t bother me,” he shrugged. “I’m no stranger to negative feedback.” And when describing cancel culture in particular, Hart said he “personally [doesn’t] give a [sh-t] about it.” 

From J.K Rowling to Dr. Suess, cancel culture has viciously deplatformed countless individuals, companies, and cultural classics for purportedly harboring ‘problematic’ ideologies. Hart tries not to give it too much power, and he’s not a fan

Rather than succumb to the cancel mob, Hart emphasized that he tries to just move on with his life: “I’ve been cancelled, what, three or four times? Never bothered. If you allow it to have an effect on you, it will. Personally? That’s not how I operate. Understand people are human. Everyone can change.” 

Hart speaks from experience. After he was announced as the 2019 Oscars ceremony host, allegedly homophobic tweets of his from almost a decade prior resurfaced. Hart eventually stepped down from the ceremony and issued apologies. And he’s been lambasted on various occasions throughout his career.
