Kevin Hart Admits Being 'Immature' Over His Reaction to Homophobic Tweets

In 'Kevin Hart: Don't F**k This Up', the 'Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle' actor shares that he feels like he unintentionally 'ended up becoming a bigger mess than I expected' with his reaction.

AceShowbiz - Kevin Hart is opening up about many things in his life in his new Netflix docu-series, "Kevin Hart: Don't F**k This Up". One of the things that the comedian addressed in the new six-part docu-series was when he made headlines after his past homophobic tweets surfaced online in January, costing him the hosting gig at the Academy Awards.

Admitting that his reaction to the backlash was "immature," the top-earning entertainer said, "What I thought was going to blow over ended up becoming a bigger mess than I expected." His team apparently tried advising him that how he was handling the situation wasn't appropriate, but Kevin insisted.

"I don't want to go backward. I just want to go forward," the "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" actor told his team during a meeting, attempting to brush off the controversy.

"Everybody is telling me my approach is wrong... There's a lot of cooks in the kitchen but there's only one person in the hot water," Hart stated in the docu-series. He then talked about his "Good Morning America" appearance, saying, "I got on there and I just gave a very direct answer to the question I knew I was going to get. What I thought that was going to do, it did not do. The complete opposite happened."

"What I thought it was it wasn't, and my approach to dealing with it because of the assumption that I had is just wrong," he went on sharing. "I missed an opportunity to say simply that I don't condone any type of violence in any way, shape or form to anyone for being who they are. I f**ed up... Instead I said, 'I addressed it.' I said, 'I apologized.' I said, 'I talked about this already.' I was just immature."

In "Kevin Hart: Don't F**k This Up", which is currently available in the streaming giant, Kevin Hart's wife Eniko Parrish opened up about the cheating scandal that rocked the couple's marriage in a new six-part docu-series. In the docu-series, Kevin called the scandal "lowest moment of my life," adding, "The worst part is just knowing how you made somebody feel. When I got to see that firsthand with Eniko, when I got to see the affect my reckless behaviour had, that was crushing. That tore me up. That really tore me up."
