Kevin Hart’s reaction to Will Smith slap

A whole year has passed since the widely talked-about incident at the Oscars when Will Smith controversially slapped Chris Rock on stage. Even now, the incident remains a polarising topic of discussion among many.

While the public has shared numerous opinions on the matter, several celebrities have also expressed their views. One notable figure to weigh in on the issue is Kevin Hart, who happens to be close friends with both Smith and Rock.

According to Cinemablend, Hart offered his genuine perspective on the slap incident and emphasised how the world should approach the situation at this stage.

“People make mistakes, and from mistakes they should be allowed time to fucking recover. And that this is no longer the world’s problem, it’s Will and Chris’s problem. Let them deal with that.

“The world should step out of it and let them recover… Let Will recover from it. Let Chris get back to work as normal.

“Let two men be men and figure that out if they choose to. If they do, they do. If they don’t, they don’t, said Hart.
