Kevin Hart who is one of the biggest selling comedians if not the biggest recently came out to address the issue of race in the movie industry.
“People will look for any excuse to play the race card in Hollywood. “I think in this day and age – look – it is what it is,” he said at the press conference of the movie The Secret Life of Pets before going on to add, “You want it to be more diversified, you want to see more diversity, but a lot of people make attention and draw attention by talking about it whereas if you just work and progress, you eventually put yourself in a position to help the problem by bringing more people into the business.”
If that wasn’t enough the award-winning comedian who just released his latest blockbuster with the Rock further went to congratulate the actors who weren’t nominated at this years’ Oscars for their hard work and effort.
According to People Magazine, the proud father of two also echoed his Oscar speech that negativity will only attract a negative response
“I bust my ass and do what I’m supposed to and I’ve been promoting movies internationally now for the past four years. They say movies don’t transfer with black actors internationally. I don’t feed into that. I do what I do. If other people did the same thing, you will look up and see more multicultural films being perceived by so many more people,” Kevin says.
