Kevin Hart says gay jokes are off limits but not dark skinned vs. light skinned comedy!
Kevin Hart Says He’d Rather Make Jokes About Black Women Than Gays
Comedian Kevin Hart will joke about a lot of things — but there are two things that are off limits: politics and gay jokes.
Via Rumor Fix reports:
“I’m not a political guy. I don’t really deal with Democrats or Republicans. I don’t find that funny,” he tells Playboy’s June issue. “And I don’t talk about the gay community, be it male or female. No thank you! It’s such a sensitive subject. I’ve seen comics get into serious trouble by joking about gay people. It’s too dangerous. Whatever you say, any joke you make about the gay community, it’s going to be misconstrued. It’s not worth it.”
But, the Real Husbands Of Hollywood star isn’t afraid to rock the boat when it comes to light-skinned vs. dark-skinned women.
Defending his jokes, Kevin says, “That was just me being silly on Twitter, playing on a trending topic. Some people were offended by it, but that’s always a risk with comedy. Nobody’s going to find everything funny. I didn’t feel I had to apologize for something that was misconstrued and taken out of context. I have no ill will toward women, not dark-skinned women, not light-skinned women. I was just being silly. I’m a comedian. Being silly is my job; it’s how I pay my bills.”
Do you think comedy shouldn’t be censored or are some topics just off limits??
