Kevin Hart Supports Nate Parker: The public tried to destroy his character.
Kevin Hart is the latest celebrity to lend his support to Nate Parker, despite the rape controversy that’s surrounded him since he began promoting his new film, ‘The Birth of a Nation‘. In a recent interview, when asked if he had seen Parker’s new film, he responded,
No, I didn’t see it yet. But I definitely want to see it though. Shouts out to him. Produced, wrote, directed. [He] faced the public’s attempt to, I guess you would say, to destroy his character. From bringing up stuff from the past when he’s got the project of his life on the line – to sit, face it, stand and say ‘I beat that. To bring it up is weak of you. I stand by my work, I stand by what I’m proud of and you know what? I’m not gonna turn and steer away from it.’ I salute him man. I support him.
During the interview, Hart also addressed reports that his new wife, Eniko, is pregnant.
