Kevin Hart Shows His Apprecations For Will Smith, Says “The World Should Step Out of it and Let Them Recover” From The Situation
While on Drink Champs, Kevin Hart gave Will Smith his flowers and reminded us of the path he paved for African-Americans in entertainment.
Will Smith is the reason why the idea of African Americans attached to global IP is normal. Studios took the gamble on more leads of color because of the work that Will Smith, Denzel were doing in the beginning, right?” he exclaimed. “You need the faces that are giving the universal return. So I’m not gonna sh*t on Will and act like he hasn’t been, and wasn’t, that guy.”
“And people make mistakes, and from mistakes they should be allowed time to f**kin’ recover. … And that this is no longer the world’s problem, it’s Will and Chris’s problem. Let them deal with that. The world should step out of it and let them recover.”
Hopefully, Will Smith and Chris Rock can come together and talk it out soon but from the looks, it might be a while before its time for them to do so.
