This has been a challenging week for Kevin Hart. The comedian may have cheated death by surviving a horrendous car crash, but he’s now facing a hellish road to recovery, while simultaneously facing the hellish fury from fans online.
First things first, Hart’s terrifying car accident over the weekend resulted in major back injuries, which then lead to back surgery on Sunday. But, now we’re learning the extent of Kev’s back injuries and what the recovery will really look like. As TMZ reports, doctors were tasked with repairing three fractures to his spine:
Kevin’s Sunday night surgery involved fusing the fractures … 2 of them in the thoracic section of his spine, and 1 in the lumbar. Although the procedure was a success, Kevin is still going through hell. We’re told he has to be heavily medicated because the pain is just that intense.
Hart’s recovery will not only be painful, but it’s also expected to be a weeks long (if not months long) rehabilitation process. And now, it looks Kev may need to rehabilitate from some online pain that’s currently brewing up.
Well before his accident, Kevin, along with Lil Nas X and others, shot an episode of The Shop: UNINTERRUPTED. Ironically, it’s the comedians Constantine interrupting that has folks online in an uproar.
Kev’s history with homophobic statements is well-documented. And after this year’s debacle, in which the 40-year-old pulled out of hosting the Oscars, the optics on this situation make people think he’s overcorrecting to appear as though he’s never had any homophobic issues at all.
Kevin Hart is more homophobic when he’s trying so hard not to show that he is, in fact, homophobic. The same man questioning Lil Nas when he said they were brought up to hate gay people is the same man who said his biggest fear in life is his son being gay 🤷🏻♀️ https://t.co/7An6z0Bj2I

the fact that kevin hart tried to act like he doesn’t know about the internalized homophobia in the black community is ridiculous smh this is exactly why it was so powerful for lil nas x to come out when he did

Kevin Hart acting like he doesn’t know why Lil Nas X would be scared to come out is like someone who stole the thing you lost helping you look for it. https://t.co/ZmfRNMktel

Hopefully, Kev’s so medicated that he doesn’t;t even know this is going on — and furthermore, he can just focus on his recovery, not folks trying to cancel him (again).
