Here We Go: Liberals Slam Kevin Hart for Telling Actor Jussie Smollett to ‘Stand Strong’ After Alleged Racist Assault
On Tuesday actor Jussie Smollett alleged he was assaulted by Trump-supporting bigots with bleach and a noose at 2 AM in Chicago.
Smollett had a noose around his neck when he notified police.
Police are investigating the incident.
Several Hollywood personalities reacted to the alleged horrific attack.
Comedian Kevin Hart even released a video of the alleged assault.
But it wasn’t enough for the liberal party.
Fellow liberals attacked Kevin Hart after he told Jussie Smollett to “stand strong.”
Kevin Hart sent his best wishes to Jussie Smollett after the Empire star was attacked in a possible hate crime, but some social media users were left outraged by Hart’s message in the wake of his homophobic tweets.
“Sending prayers your way @jussiesmollett ….This is unbelievably sad,” Hart, 39, captioned a photo of Smollett, 36, on Instagram Opens a New Window. on Tuesday, January 29. “Why are we going backwards….this is disgusting. We as people have to do better. WTF is going on the world???? Why are we falling in love with hate???? God damn it people….Choose love…I repeat…Choose love. I will forever choose love and I will continue to teach my kids how to do the same. Stand strong brother.”
The Upside actor shared the same post on Twitter, where countless users replied with remarks about how the racist and homophobic attack on Smollett is an example of why Hart’s past controversial jokes were widely criticized. Other critics pointed out how Hart once joked in 2011 about abusing his son if he were gay, which was just one of the many since-deleted tweets that recently resurfaced and led to the stand-up comedian’s decision to step down from hosting the upcoming Oscars and apologize to the LGBT community.
