Will Ferrell & Kevin Hart's 'Get Hard' Sparks Controversy Over Racist Jokes at SXSW 2015
Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart are all smiles while attending the premiere of their upcoming film Get Hard during the 2015 SXSW Music, FIlm + Interactive Festival held at the Paramount Theatre on Monday (March 16) in Austin, Texas.
The two actors were joined by their director Etan Cohen.
After the screening, one of the audience members showed their displeasure over the movie’s jokes about African Americans by saying, “This film seemed racist as f–-k.”
Etan responded by saying, “The truth is, that was a delicate balance to find. When we were testing the movie, Ferguson was going on. It was hard to modulate… how far to push it.”
He added, “When you do satire, that’s a big problem. That’s a dangerous thing. It’s a very small window–that’s what we’re trying to find.”
