If we are to truly end the idiocy of #Woke-ism or Cancel Culture, then comics — both popular and not popular yet — will need to lead the way. Thankfully, another megastar in all facets of entertainment, Kevin Hart, has come out and slammed the notion of protecting everyone from getting their feelings hurt.
As I have written here before, the feelings-over-facts crowd have taken over the entertainment industry, and it was only a matter of time before there was a pushback.

He did to his peers what none of us could truly ever do and he did it with such blistering efficiency in calling out their Bull$%^& and he made it stick and I doubt we will ever see the likes of it again.
