Kevin Hart Speaks Out Against Cancel Culture: People Deserve A Chance To Move on

Comedian Kevin Hart addressed the cancel culture during a recent Instagram Live session.

The actor knows first hand the impact of the cancel culture, as his Oscar dreams were ripped from him after old homophobic tweets surfaced. Many called for Hart's offer to host the ceremony be revoked -- and it was despite him apologizing.

"What I mean about being realistic is: Nobody's perfect, nobody's going to be," he explained. "We're living in a time where we're just expecting perfect, as if people don't slip and fall down the steps, or everybody walks straight all the time. But you stumble.. -- it's weird to really hold people at a level that they never asked to be held at," Hart says.

"You get to 21, and there's a celebration of you now being an adult because you spent those years being a kid, 21 to 31, I was a young adult, so I didn't know what life was going to be like as an adult, so I messed up as a young adult," he continued. "Although some things are warranted and I understand, it's just us as people have got to be smart enough to know what, whatever has happened, has happened, but people deserve a chance to move on."

Is he right?
