Kevin Hart has hit back at online critics who believe he “isn’t funny anymore”.
The 41-year-old comedian posted a long statement on Twitter after reading comments from trolls stating they had tired or were bored of his brand of comedy.
Clearly, he’s had enough, and responded by listing his successes from his decades-long career.
He wrote: “I got time today....The “He’s not funny” slander is the best....this is for you. I have 3 stand up comedy specials that fall in the top 10 highest grossing comedy specials of all time....2 of my specials are in the top 3 of all time.
“I have been the highest grossing comedian in entertainment for years now....I have also been the highest grossing comedian in the box office with over 4 billion in earnings ....I have also turned my comedic talent into a place of business and branding and radio and other revenue streams....
“The hate/slander fuels me to do more.You guys are what makes this business fun....because it’s not about getting to the top....it’s about doing your best to stay on top after you get there.”
*“I rarely talk s**....but I felt the need to today,” he added. “Stop believing these headlines and read the actual articles.... you guys fall for the banana in the tail pipe trick every damn time.
“J Cole said it best “If ur laughing at a millionaire the jokes on YOU” .....Now back to ur regularly scheduled program. Live love and laugh!!!!”
Hart’s comments come on the eve of the release of a dramatic turn for the star in Netflix’s Fatherhood.
Based on the book Two Kisses for Maddy: A Memoir of Loss and Love by Matthew Logelin, the star plays a father adjusting to life with a daughter after his wife dies shortly after childbirth.
Suddenly raising young Maddy alone, Matt finds help in his friends, mother and mother-in-law as he raises the baby girl by himself.
But as Maddy starts to grow up and needs more female influence in her life, Matt starts to struggle when he meets someone new to potentially start a romance with.
Fatherhood is released Friday on Netflix.
