I knew this photo of Whoopi Goldberg floating around this week would soon have a whole new meaning: “TakeMe. I’m open and available!”
A lot can change in 24 hours time. Just ask the Laugh at my Pain actor-comedian Kevin Hart.
Just as he proudly accepted and announced that he was overjoyed about such a “gig” the jig was up: The Internets came swarming. And It was found that Kevin Hart’s social past was heartless.
Tweets were found that were blatantly homophobic and offensive to the LGBTQ community.
Fast forward. A new marriage, successful career a few years later; Kevin Hart became a changed man yet, those tweets remained—and came back to haunt the well-known comedian.
Although after Kevin’s
apology validating the authenticity of the tweets and explaining himself, GLAAD president was very accepting of it and suggest that the show [should] go on (with Kevin Hart hosting).
Kevin however, though it best that he step down-so as to thwart the unnecessary attention that he knows all too well will be swarming he and he tweets, rather than the award celebration and its nominees.
