Kevin Hart’s latest public statements meant he was trending hard on Twitter last night. The comedian became the butt of many jokes, a meme, and ultimately got mic dropped by Jamie Lee Curtis.
When Hart refused to apologize, Twitter had jokes.

How was Kevin Hart supposed to know that gay people are human beings who deserve respect in the year 2010?! LGBTQ equality was a foreign concept that hadn’t even been spoken of yet! I was still sharing a jail cell with Oscar Wilde back then!— Chris Schleicher (@cschleichsrun) December 7, 2018
Be the bigger man. The man your Special Effects dude made you look like in your wedding pics. Be that guy. Stick to your Generic No-Name brand of “humor”. Leave the edgy stuff to the pros. pic.twitter.com/P0md096njU— Ginger Lyn ❄️🎅🏽🎁🎄 (@Ginger_Lyn_66) December 7, 2018
Is Kevin Hart hoping we'll read this and say, "He can't be a homophobe, he's in love with a man!!!!"? https://t.co/YDHj9NOkMY— Emily Heller (@MrEmilyHeller) December 7, 2018
His comment about loving himself became an instant meme.

The man I’m becoming just broke up with me! :-(— Andy Richter (@AndyRichter) December 7, 2018
I'm sure Kevin Hart feels the exact same way. https://t.co/iTE9flmPIg— hellresidentNY (@hellresidentNY) December 7, 2018
genuinely insane that the golden globes snubbing PADDINGTON 2 somehow *wasn’t* the biggest awards-related shitshow of the day— david ehrlich (@davidehrlich) December 7, 2018
But we’re gonna leave this with a queen, the ultimate scream queen. Here’s Halloween’s Jamie Lee Curtis on Hart’s statement.
