The perpetually offended are deeply offended by Kevin Hart’s very offensive Saturday Night Live monologue.
Hart did what comedians have always done to make people laugh - he exploited a stereotype, saying when it comes to fun, kids would rather play with their fathers because moms aren’t fun.
How insensitive and misogynistic! Especially in this day and age post-Harvey Weinstein.
It sparked a melt-down in the Twitterverse as self-appointed “media connoisseurs” weighed in on Hart’s politically-incorrect jokes.
But, Kevin Hart isn’t a head of state. He’s not an ambassador. He’s not a Supreme Court justice. He’s a comedian!
His specialty is telling jokes and like it or not, often the very best jokes push the envelope of taste and civility and are sexist and racist in nature.
If that reality-check is offensive to you, then please do us a favour, and go take your humourless-selves into a quiet corner so the rest of us can enjoy a laugh.
