Kevin Hart Defends Himself After Facing Backlash For Describing His Daughter As A "Hoe" In New Netflix Special

He clarified in an Instagram video that he just said that her daughter's activity is like a hoe. And further said that it’s just for promotional purposes as due to the pandemic he had no other ways to promote it. I’m not calling my daughter a hoe, I’m saying what she did is hoe-like activity.’

Kevin Hart had been severely criticized by many social media users due to his remarks regarding her daughter. He called his daughter ‘Hoe’. Many users criticized him and considered it sexist remarks while some considered it as disrespect for black women. He clarified in an Instagram video that he just said that her daughter's activity is like a Hoe. And further said that it’s just for promotional purposes as due to the pandemic he had no other ways to promote it and it’s the only way to go viral.

No stranger to backlash is the Jumanji star, particularly after his now-infamous Oscar implosion. This time, though the comedian is being blamed for remarks about his child.

Hart was called out for an earlier joke about his daughter, as well as disrespecting black women during a recent appearance on Clubhouse, a comparatively new audio-only social network.

As part of his new Netflix stand-up special Zero F*cks Given, the 41-year-old said:

A week goes by, ‘Dad, I don’t like Rob no more. I like this boy named Tim.’ Instantly, in my mind, I said, ‘My daughter a hoe. This is hoe shit. This is hoe shit. Hoe activity right in front of my face.’

 



 

 

Many women found the joke to be racist, and attacked Hart. The comedian, however, set the record straight in an Instagram video after the Clubhouse appearance.

He says, ‘We gotta stop. Stop with the false narrative, it’s a false narrative that’s being created. If you were in the Clubhouse and a part of the conversation, this wasn’t about Black women. It wasn’t about me going against Black.’

Hart continues, ‘The question was asked about thejoke about my daughter and me referencing my daughter having hoe-like activity. I gave an answer to it. Here’s what it is, guys: I’m not calling my daughter a hoe, I’m saying what she did is hoe-like activity.’

Hart adds, ‘Stop with the false narratives and the click bait and the back-and-forth.’

 



 

 

Elsewhere in the video, he explains that there’s ‘no other way to market or promote because we’re in a pandemic… I can’t go and do the talk shows that I once did or go out and do the public stunts. I have no other ways to market and promote except to go viral. I had to create conversations, generate back-and-forth.’

His caption is even firmer, writing, ‘Let me make this clear…..THIS IS NOT AN APOLOGY….this is common sense…..also THIS IS WHY I MADE THIS SPECIAL!!!! This is why….now go stream that bitch!!!!! Let’s goooooo #ItsComedyNotPolitics.’

Hart also mentioned Hannibal Buress's 2014 comedy show during the Clubhouse talk, in which he portrayed Bill Cosby as a rapist, noting that he brought down the convicted sex abuser. Some have taken this as Cosby's shield, even if this is the case, it's not obvious.
