Kevin Hart Doesn’t Care About Criticism Over Cowboys And Indians Birthday Party
If it wasn’t already abundantly clear that Kevin and Eniko Hart don’t give a flying f*** about your feelings about their son and his “Cowboys and Indians” themed first birthday party, Kevin took to his Sirius radio show “Straight From The Hart” to say he felt the criticism was stupid as hell…
“She posts this picture and the next day there’s a lot of flak,” Kevin said on-air. You know I don’t go on none of that ish, I don’t read that stuff. She says come and look at this dumb isht on TMZ. People are complaining about the Cowboys and Indians party, saying it’s insensitive, that this is a very insensitive thing… ‘Keep in mind, the same day the Cowboys played the Redskins on TV. It’s a very known fact.'”
Wow… the irony. Did y’all watch the Cowboys play the Redskins? We’re still boycotting for Kaep but that’s interesting.
“Now the reason why I’m even bringing this dumb s**t up is because it shows just how stupid our world is becoming with opinion. People are at a point of an all time high. To throw racial judgment into the development of a one year old’s birthday party where the theme is cowboys and Indians and it’s based around the outfits that are given to these young kids,” Kevin continued before his co-host interrupted to ask a question:
“Somebody said, what if next year somebody throws a slave owner and a slave party?”
Kevin responded, “If you don’t think there are certain neighborhoods where they played those type of games, certain white neighborhoods, then you are a fu**ing idiot. Did we play cops and robbers? Did you play Cowboys and Indians?”
His co-host interjected again, “Did you play blackface?”
“No,” Kevin said. “But that’s not a game. When you were a child you’d go stores and buy certain paraphernalia you’re buying the boots, you’re buying the hat, sometimes you buy the lasso.”
“I don’t think the Cowboys were the problem,” Hart’s co-host said. “I think it’s the Indians.”
Kevin wasn’t budging on his point though.
“I’m saying the battle that is “assumed” because of the movies and because of everything they’ve seen, was because of the fights that were between the cowboys and the Indians.So as a kid, when you played these games, it was based off of the premise from a hypothetical place that was put into perception for movies.”
“So what I’m saying – this isn’t something that was just started. This isn’t a racial slur that people are doing and being malicious with. This is a game that’s been played for years. I’m about to be 40 years old. I remember at the age 6, 7 playing these dumba** games. I remember playing cops and robbers.”
Do you think that he’s wrong not to at least acknowledge that regardless of how long we’ve been playing “these games” we live in a society where now we are expected to know better and do better?
Kevin also posted this to his Instagram…
Is he too focused on keeping positive? Is criticism always a negative thing? Do you think there’s still some room for this guy to grow?
