Kevin Hart is speaking out after seeing the way Wednesday’s riots at the Capitol building were handled by authorities.
The legendary comedian wasn’t joking when he expressed his thoughts on Wednesday. He shared an image that shows protestors scaling the walls of the Capitol building and one where a protester had his boots kicked up on an office desk inside. Hart tried his best to put his emotions into words to express how he feels the situation would have been handled if the protesters were black.

Kevin stated that black Americans have a different reality than other races.
“2 completely different America’s that we are living in,” Hart wrote on social media.
“If these people were black they would have all been shot dead. This s–t is past the word sad….at this point it’s pure disrespect to all people of color. Why can’t we see this situation handled the same way that we have seen our people handled repeatedly….when the armed officers are supposed to use force they don’t….S–t is fucking SAD!!!!!”
The actor said he couldn’t understand why everyone doesn’t see the situation the same way but, judging by the fierce debates by his fans in the comments section of his post, it’s clear that not everyone shares his point of view.
Half of his followers agreed with him about how American society is not equal and the other half was quick to point out the fact that a white woman lost her life.
“You do realize a white woman was shot dead in the Capitol today, right?” one follower said trying to make some sort of point.
“Privilege. Privilege. & Even More Privilege ???,” a fan who agrees with Kevin commented.
Shortly after 1 PM EST, pro-Trump protestors stormed the Capitol building in Washington D.C. An armed standoff occurred at the front door and one woman was shot during the incident. It was reported that the woman passed away later in the evening. Vice President Mike Pence was evacuated from the building where he was there to fulfill his role in the counting of the electoral votes.
Disturbing images of protestors scaling the Capitol walls and President Trump eventually released a video via Twitter that called for the protestors to “go home” peacefully.
