Nick Cannon Calls Out Female Comedians Over Past Homophobic Tweets While Defending Kevin Hart

Nick Cannon is sticking up for his pal Kevin Hart.

After Kevin announced that he had stepped down from hosting the 2019 Oscars after his past homophobic tweets resurfaced, the 38-year-old former America’s Got Talent host took to Twitter to call out female comedians Amy Schumer, Sarah Silverman, and Chelsea Handler that he says also used homophobic language.

“InterestingšŸ¤” I wonder if there was any backlash here…” Nick tweeted while calling out Chelsea and Amy for using “f-g” in their tweets from 2010 and 2012.

Nick also brought up Sarah‘s tweet 2010 when she wrote, “I don’t mean this in a hateful way but the new bachelorette’s a f—-t.”

Sarah recently opened up about her past mistakes saying, ā€œAll I can do is learn from it, be changed forever by it, and do what I can to make it right going forward…Certainly stuff that I did 10 or 15 years ago, I cringe at now.”

Kevin stepped down from the Oscars and apologized to the LGBTQ community and initially refusing to apologize for his homophobic tweets.

    Because these are two comediennes who have been very outspoken in the movement of ppl being held accountable, they also have tried to change the way they are seen, and yes WOMEN(because a lot of men have been dragged and made to be held accountable. It is not one sided. ALL SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE!!!). MeToo,GLSN,The Trevor Project, and numerous others are there not to just come at men. Its to hold everyone to the exact same standard. Men have been dragged and its not just them. Men are abused, gay men are dragged and called disgusting names. Everyone should be held to the same thing. Sarah has said racist things and even written off what her male friends have done to women that have crossed lines. So yes they should have been called out especially because both are problematic. Just saying, hopefully this doesn’t seem to come at you aggressive
