Kevin Hart Defends Joke About His Daughter, Clarifies Clubhouse App Discussion + Says He Doesn’t ‘Give A F**k’ About Mixed Reviews
Comedian and actor Kevin Hart is speaking out about the Internet’s latest issues with him and some of the material used both in his discussion in the Clubhouse app and about his newest Netflix special, “Kevin Hart: Zero F**ks Given.”
On Friday (November 27), Kevin Hart took to his Instagram to clarify what he meant when he made a joke during his latest special that referenced his 15-year-old daughter Heaven Hart‘s behavior, saying that what he had been hearing was a “false narrative:”
Stop with the false narrative. It’s a false narrative that’s being created. If you were in the Clubhouse [App] and a part of the conversation, this wasn’t about Black women.The question was asked about the joke about my daughter and me referencing my daughter having h*e-like activity. I gave an answer to it. Here’s what it is, guys: I’m not calling my daughter a h*e. I’m saying what she did is h*e-like activity.
Kevin Hart continued his explanation, saying he actually reached out to three people who no longer behaved this way but whom he considered versed in this department. He indicated when he “asked them ‘is this h*e like activity,” they were able to confirm his suspicions.
In the same video, Kevin broke down the reason he was even present on the app. Clubhouse is a new, invitation-only social media app that’s voice chat-based, allows users to go into different chat rooms to hear and/or participate in conversations being broadcast, and is not currently available to the public. He appeared in one of the app’s chat rooms and apparently talked about a number of topics. However, there seemed to have been questions as to why Kevin was there in the Clubhouse app seemingly promoting himself because he said:
Guys, there is 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 way to market and promote except to go viral. I had to create conversations [and] generate back and forth. That’s the marketing and promotion attached to my [new] special. It’s common sense here, guys. Marketing. Promotion. That’s why I was in Clubhouse: marketing, promotion, [and] conversation.

In another video shared on his Instagram earlier in the week, Kevin says that he really doesn’t care about what some are calling mixed reviews in regards to his latest Netflix comedy special “Kevin Hart: Zero F**ks Given.” He says he was asked how he felt about the reviews by a journalist and states that at his age (41 years old), he doesn’t have time to give a “f**k” about what people think:
I actually have zero f**ks to give. He said ‘but Kevin…but wait. Like, you know, people said that they want the old Kevin back.’ I don’t give a f**k what people say. I have zero f**ks to give. If you want the old Kevin, go look at what the old Kevin did ’cause this Kevin doesn’t give a f**k. I have zero f**ks to give. I don’t care. I don’t f**king care.
