Kevin Hart Explains Why He Doesn't Do Gay Jokes Anymore


On a Reddit AMA this week, comedian Kevin Hart was asked, "You find a lot of comedy in male insecurities, including a famous bit where you express fear that your son will be gay. You praised Frank Ocean at the MTV VMAs in 2012 for having the courage to come out, and recently said in an interview that you don't do jokes any more about gays. What changed your mind on this subject of humor?"

Said Hart: "It's just a sensitive topic and I respect people of all orientations. So, it's just best left alone."

In the midst of targeting several celebrities in the audience, host Kevin Hart gave Frank Ocean props last night in his opening monologue for having the courage to come out of the closet:

Hart"I think what Frank Ocean did was really great, and I'm very serious about that. For those who don't know what Frank Ocean did, he realized he needed to come out of the closet in the middle of singing one of his songs. 'I've been thinkining about you, Leroy.' They said, 'Frank, I think you said "Leroy,"' he said, 'No I didn't. I said "Lisa."'... They said, 'Frank, we can play it back if you want us to.' He said, everybody take five, he wrote a letter to his fans. Not everybody can do that, and for that, I commend you."

The audience agreed. Later Ocean sang a gorgeous rendition of "Thinkin About You".
