I’m not a card caring fan of either comedian. I’ve never watched a Kevin Hart stand-up routine or film. I’ve only seen one Katt Williams’ stand-up routine. However; I have watched clips of both comedy actors numerous times over the years.
Kevin Hart is cool but I cringe at many of Katt Williams’ ideology and views.
I had no knowledge of any ongoing tensions between the two but it’s not surprising being that Katt Williams always has a beef with somebody or something. He is similar to Kanye West in that regard.
At a recent stop in Atlanta on his Conspiracy Theory Tour, Katt goes in on Hart calling him a Hollywood “puppet”, why…because fuck you it’s Katt Williams.
“I’ve already proven that if the best they got in comedy is Kevin Hart than — don’t you boo a black man working hard, baby. Even if that nigga’s a puppet, it’s not his fault. We don’t get mad. Just because I’m better than some black dudes doesn’t mean I’m better than no black dudes. I’m saying if you want to be mad at Kermit The Frog, don’t be mad at Kermit The Front. Be mad at Jim Henson. Don’t say, ‘Fuck Donald Duck” when you really mean, ‘Fuck Walt Disney.’
I don’t care nothing that happens to Kevin [Hart], I just wish him the best. I just know that that’s somebody’s hand stuck up that baby, you understand. Oh, we’re a puppet show, boo boo. Please believe it. You’re looking at the only nigga that ain’t.
So, since I’ve already officially proven to myself that I really am who Richard Pryor passed his torch to, and that I was able to do it without letting a man suck my dick, or sucking a man’s dick. I walked in with a virgin asshole, I walked out with a virgin asshole. I got the same soul today that I had when I did Pimp Chronicles all the way to the end of Pimp Chronicles.”
There’s a factual saying that Black people have to work twice as hard as white people, just to get a foot in the door. For many, there are some additional parameters that need be met in order for success to be gained by Black Hollywood mainstream celebrities.
For Black conspiracy theorists and the Black consciously woke, there are two primary reasons why Black celebrities are successful in Hollywood;
1. They have been influenced by and have accepted the illuminati.
2. They are closeted homo/bisexuals who have offered up their bodies for sexual favors to the Hollywood elite ruling class.
That’s it in a nutshell and you just heard and read it directly from Katt Williams.
Regardless if you believe or don’t believe in the illuminati, it’s damaging and sends the wrong message to the Black community. The message is that only a hand-full of Black entertainers can achieve a certain level of mainstream success by selling their souls and bowing down to the white man.
This line of thinking guides the idea that, Black writers, directors, actors, etc.; no matter how hard they work, no matter how disciplined their grind is…unless they join the illuminati, they will not make it. This furthers the narrative that successful Black people who “made it” are now sell-outs, dysfunctional or think-they’re-better-than the Blacks who haven’t made it but may work just as hard. The latter Blacks embrace the struggle because they will not bow down to the white “illuminati” man.
Because Katt Williams has yet to achieve the level of cross-over mainstream success of Kevin Hart, somehow Hart achieved it wrong and is a puppet being controlled by Hollywood white elites. Katt’s struggle is real, true and righteous, even though he is still (by many metrics) a successful popular Black house-hold-name comedian.
An interesting element of possible contradiction within Katt’s statement is that he feels and claims “I really am who Richard Pryor passed his torch to.” This is his opinion and I’m sure others may share it…cool. Nonetheless; Katt followed this up with negative characterizations by contrasting himself against Kevin’s sexuality when he proclaims of not sucking dick and having a virgin asshole.
Deflowered assholes aside, is he (Katt) and others aware that Richard Pryor openly admitted to dating a transgender woman, fucking f@ggots (Pryor’s own words) and sucking dick?
Katt’s supposed torch passer performed in the same realm of sexual activities he is attempting to belittle and insult Kevin Hart with.
I’m not in the mind of Katt but it could be he’s stating, “at least Richard Pryor acted out his homosexual activities on his own and with no quid pro quo,” and Kevin Hart is basically “gay for pay”…maybe. I don’t know but regardless this is still very damaging because the message to the audience is because Kevin may have homosexual tendencies, this makes his success less valid because his sexuality makes him less of a real man. This attitude reinforces anti-homosexual sentiments within the Black community.
I know from firsthand experience, that there are closeted homo/bisexual Black and Hispanic professional entertainers in sports and mainstream (movies, tv, music) media. These types of under-handed anti-homosexual sentiments play a part in keeping these professional entertainers in their proverbial closets. This kind of public spectacle reaffirms that if they’re open with their sexualities, it would be a killer to their careers. Unlike those White Hollywood illuminati participants who can be out / open with their sexualities while still being championed and have mainstream accomplishments.
Due to the appeal of both of Katt and Kevin, this is a national mainstream story. Within the sections of the more urban, hip-hop themed web sites and within Black social media, the comments are littered with Black people calling both Katt and Kevin, f@ggots, homos, queers, and suspect. “Suspect” being code word for one’s perceived questionable sexuality. Katt Williams supporters are calling him the Tupac of comedy and saying he will be assassinated by the Hollywood elites for bring attention to the Illuminati. All the while saying Kevin Hart is a gay Hollywood puppet because he wore a dress that one time.
As the world watches, Kevin Hart just so happened to release a “let me rise above this foolishness” statement via Instagram:
