  1. It was petty to ban him for stating his opinion. If a person wants to be gay/lesbian, that’s their choice. Not all of us want that

    • Nobody banned it. And NO, its not gay people that asked him to step down, its the OSCARS, Idiots

    • What are you on about? Nobody WANTS to be gay lool, not even gay people. It’s just who they are. That’s why so many gay kids end up killing themselves because of the fear of rejection from their family/society. And also, that has nothing to do with the Kevin Hart situation. Sounds like you’re incredibly ignorant.

    • +Peyton Bell what’s wrong with saying sorry that’s all he had to do he was in the wrong a real man says sorry.

    • +m a r i o they banned him NOW now when it’s all out in the open. When it was an “open secret” he was getting praises and awards like some hero.

    • Political Twinkie Long story short- HW- unknown assault, not hosting= still $πŸ‘Œ. KH- noted homophobe (their thinking), hosting= less $πŸ‘Ž. The Academy suffers…and that’s about the size of it.

  2. They are. Comedy has no limits, there’s only funny and unfunny jokes. People don’t get to dictate what material can be talked about in comedy. That’s literally the job of the comedian

    • Sensitive rich gays are the most sensitive cry babies on earth. They literally use their money and power to dictate things so they can feel better about themselves. Its sad really and the LBGT needs to step in and talk about these things and call these tyrants out. Why do they sit around watching these predators and dictators control the world and have nothing to say but they be their for Gay pride day or have something to say when someone jokes about gays.

    • So, by your logic, what Kathy Griffin did should have a) faced zero backlash and b) required no apology? Am I accurate in that query or am I missing something?

    • Edit; Sam Gee, I completely agree with your statement, for clarification purposes. Personally I didn’t much care for the image but I do stand by individual Americans’ rights to express themselves (that whole Freedom of Expression thing, you know).

    • Watch me make a joke of how to Rape a 3 months old baby, I love the insensitivity πŸ‘

  3. I have to disagree with you there, Terrence Howard. Dave Chappelle is 10 times funnier than Kevin Hart.

  4. People are so sensitive today. Social Justice Warriors are the reason we have President Trump. Fun fact, SJWs are horrible comedians.

    • ShadowDrift I never knew what SJW meant I appreciate you educating meπŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸΎ I watch a lot of Feminist cringe videos and never knew what that terminology was lol

  5. It’s a joke wtf is wrong with ppl….everthing is like offensive now,quick to cry about it…….its their job to make fun or play a role…. to make ppl laugh of whats going on with everyday lifestyle….😏😏 smh

    • +Marie MERCURY Curie they wear pink bandanas? I saw them “jump” a guy into their gang. Wasn’t pretty lmaoπŸ˜‚

    • +TVScanner99 you don’t know that! That’s your opinion. Have you had every homo in 1 room telling them jokes? How did you know that its a small amount of ppl. In my experience , gays (especially men) do think that they’re privileged. I’ve worked w a few of them & they say , do what they want, but god forbid YOU do the same.

    • +Dirg Ramsey Just like whites, they 2nd behind blacks but say its due to mental illness or blame immigrants.

  6. What I want to know is if we have to continuously apologize for past offenses….why dont the US keep apologizing for slavery?

    • Rare Onyx πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ’―

    • We continuously do. Presidents have issued apologies. Black people continually throw it in the face of everybody and everybody keeps feeling guilty and saying “yeah that was wrong” “yes that was awful”, keep passing laws and having programs for blacks to make up for its past sins…America is continually “apologizing”, actually.

  7. It’s crazy how people can disrespect our President but not gays, women, transgender ext……Weird Times

  8. Terrence Howard look like he can be Stephen Curry’s uncle on his mom side
