The internet went nuts after Kevin Hart’s comments about gays went viral. Amid those comments Kevin Hart steps down from hosting the Oscars. After being around media and entertainment going on 12 years I can tell you that if you think words don’t have power think again. Also when you are an entertainment superstar like Kevin Hart, words with  his vast  platform hit harder than a Thanos punch in Avengers:Infinity War. So the question is, was Keven Hart’s comments appropriate after all he is a comedian. Or should he have just had some chill. What do you think?

Here are other Hollywood peers that gave their take on the situation.
