Cancel Culture has become the center of fierce debate in recent years as high-strung liberals have gobbled up one public figure after another for the slightest of comments.
Now, though, an unexpected voice is speaking out.
In a recent interview with Sunday Times, actor and comedian superstar Kevin Hart blasted cancel culture.
“When did we get to a point where life was supposed to be perfect?” Hart said. “Where people were supposed to operate perfectly all the time? I don’t understand.If you allow it to have an effect on you, it will. Personally? That’s not how I operate. I understand people are human.”
Hart experienced cancel culture firsthand when he decided to not host the Academy Awards after old tweets surfaced and mired him in controversy.
“I’ve been canceled, what, three or four times? Never bothered,” Hart said. “If you allow it to have an effect on you, it will. Personally? That’s not how I operate.”
Hart said we can’t expect perfection from people.
“Everyone can change,” Hart said. “It’s like jail. People get locked up so they can be taught a lesson. When they get out, they are supposed to be better. But if they come out and people go, ‘I’m not giving you a job because you were in jail’ — then what the f*** did I go to jail for? That was my punishment. How do you not give those people a shot? They’re saying that all life should be over because of a mistake? Your life should end and there should be no opportunity to change? What are you talking about? And who are you to make that decision?”
