Kevin Hart Defends Will Smith Over Chris Rock Slap At Oscars: “Dark Times Deserve F**king Great Light” [Video]

During the most recent episode of Drink Champs, Kevin Hart came to Will Smith’s defense after being asked to choose between the Fresh Prince and his Ride Along co-star, Ice Cube.

“Dark times deserve fucking great light,” Hart said of Smith. “I’m not gonna shit on my brother. They both are my brothers, but I’m not gonna take the time to shit on them. I’ma say Will Smith, and here’s why: Will Smith is a fuckin’—he’s not only a legend, he’s not only a GOAT,” he said, as N.O.R.E. interjected, saying, “We now know he’s a gangsta.”

Hart continued to credit Will for giving Black actors and creators in Hollywood a platform.

“Will Smith is the reason why the idea of African Americans attached to global IP is normal,” Hart said. “… Studios took the gamble on more leads of color because of the work that Will Smith and Denzel were doing in the beginning, right?” he explained. “You need the faces that are giving the universal return. So I’m not gonna shit on Will and act like he hasn’t been, and wasn’t, that guy.”
