Comedian, Kevin Hart has been under fire after his appearance on The Shop with Kevin Love, Lil Nas X, and others.
On the new episode of LeBron James’ show, country-rap star Lil Nas X spoke about his decision to come out as gay, reflecting on his decision to do so while he had the top song in the country. When asked about his choice to come out, Kevin Hart chimed in with some comments. “He said he was gay… so what!?” asked the comedian.

LNX said that growing up, he and basically everyone is conditioned to believe that homosexuality is wrong. Hart didn’t understand the statement though, pressing him on why he believes that. “Come on now,” said Nas X calmly. “If you really from the hood, you know.”
He went on to explain that he wasn’t looking for attention, noting that since his song was on top of the world, it just made sense to make the announcement at that time.
People are not happy with the way Kevin Hart reacted during the interview, and have been bashing him since then.
Kevin Hart got whole homophobic bits about his own son and now he wanna say “who cares” about the gays? YOU CARED NIGGA. Let’s log into Netflix and watch you care. Str8s are 3 steps behind in evolution, I swear. https://t.co/czMRO7i5L4

Kevin Hart acting like he doesn’t know why Lil Nas X would be scared to come out is like someone who stole the thing you lost helping you look for it. https://t.co/ZmfRNMktel

"He said he was gay. So what!" Kevin Hart knows exactly what the "so what" is here and why a young black boy would closet his sexuality until he believed it was safe. Why not simply listen, give @LilNasX the space and deference to tell his own story… https://t.co/8nY9cHPftP
