Billy Porter slams Kevin Hart and his homophobic supporters in epic takedown

Billy Porter and Kevin Hart

“People think that words don’t matter. I’m going to get into this Kevin Hart thing for just a second. Because it’s not about you having a joke. That’s not what it’s about…

It’s march-into-the-streets time! We have an administration that thinks that it can, with a sentence, erase a whole group of people. And we’re not going to do anything about it? Transgender people don’t exist? F that.

I say to Kevin Hart, and I say to D.L. Hughley, I say to those people who think that they don’t need to apologize for sh*t and dig their heels in their toxic masculinity: But you want your rights! You want people to stop shooting your children in the back? But yet still, you turn around and oppress other people the same way you’re being oppressed. F that. F you. We’re done.”Billy Porter on Kevin Hart’s refusal to apologize for the 40+ antigay tweets and jokes made on his Twitter page.
