Kevin Hart is defending himself after it seems like he was caught in a sticky situation. After a model uploaded a photo where the two looked too close for comfort, fans and blogs alike had an opinion about whether or not it was appropriate for a married man to be seen in this position with a woman who isn’t Eniko Parrish.
The woman that he was photographed with Instagram account is @swan_brt where she posted the image alongside a caption that read: “Such a good guy.” The problem arose when people noticed Kevin Hart’s hand on her butt while she gives him a smooch on the cheek.
They bombarded the model’s comment section with messages on how inappropriate it appears considering he’s not a single man. She eventually decided to turn off the option to let people leave a comment.
The picture circulated to blogs and when Hollywood Unlocked reposted it, Kevin spoke out.
“This is honestly sad…This was a innocent moment where I took a picture with a fan and she bent down and kissed my cheek when the picture was taken. I walked away after. In the future please don’t ask me why I no longer take pictures. Look at my face how my hand is blurred. You can clearly see that I didn’t expect it. Stop reaching… s*** is just sad.”
Followers then called Kevin out for deflecting and making excuses because of his history of unfaithfulness.
The actor was involved in one of the most highly publicized cheating scandals of 2017 when he admitted to committing adultery while his wife was pregnant with their first child after a close friend tried to extort him by threatening to release a sex tape which got out soon after.
The comedian, who is currently on tour, brushed off the hate by uploading a video from his irresponsible tour. Do you think the photo was inappropriate?
