Kevin Hart Reveals Why He Decided to Defend Ellen DeGeneres & Nick Cannon

Kevin Hart is revealing why he decided to defend Ellen DeGeneres, as well as Nick Cannon recently amid controversies.

“Well, I don’t lose sight of the definition of friendship, and in our business, it’s one thing that people don’t really hold on to. There’s a lot of relationships that are fake, and there’s some that are real. In my case, the ones that are real are the ones that I’m always going to be adamant about speaking on behalf of. I know the people that both of them are, and knowing the people, all I can say is my experiences with those people. That’s not to take away from what other people are saying that they have had, and that they have done. It’s just to highlight what I’m saying I know, and what I can speak on behalf of,” Kevin told Deadline. “In times like this, I know also how dark it gets. I know how lonely it gets, because I know that these are times when people just turn their back on you. So for the ones that you love, that are close to your heart, you just want them to have some support, when it seems that there is none out there, and that’s just who I am as a person.”

He added, “That goes for anybody, across the board, that I consider a friend, and that’s not a big group of people. Everybody doesn’t get that conversation and that feeling from me, but the ones that do, I’m serious about it. I’m true to it, and it doesn’t mean that you have to speak on behalf of the problem. It doesn’t mean that you have to disregard the things that others are saying. It means that I can just speak on my relationship with my friends. When it comes to Nick, and it comes Ellen, I know who they are, and I know who they’ve been for the years that I’ve been around them, and I can only speak to that. Those are two of the most amazing people that I know.”

Kevin and Ellen recently met up for lunch together.

“Just when I thought it couldn’t get any worse…2020 is definitely the most f–ked up year I’ve ever witnessed! After waking up & barely rising from my own dark contemplation of continuing my physical existence on this planet, this powerful warrior actually had the balls to do it,” he wrote.

“I’ve said it once and I will say it again, this was the strongest dude I’ve ever met! Just over a year ago a San Diego Police Officer rushed in his home and unjustifiably shot him placing him in a coma for months. I stood by his bedside and promised him that if he made it out & fought the good fight that I would make his dream come true and put his album out and share his story with the world. He fought and fought, he woke up, they stitched him up, he learned to walk and talk again and within months we were back in the studio recording,” he went on to say.

“Even through his strength he would whisper to me that ‘Everything Still Hurts’ His music was definitely his safe haven and it was amazing. Paying for lawyers, putting money in his pocket, even putting the music together all meant nothing because I feel like I failed my little brother,” he added.

“The Cops will get away with shooting another kid, everyone will just look at this as yet another loving farewell post, but to me @ryanbowersob was so much more than that. Once again my brother you have put this world in perspective for me. You would do that quite often because I never understood how someone who was experiencing sooo much pain could still laugh and smile through it all. This photo was the last time we seen each other in person. It was your first show back! Soldout crowd in our hometown San Diego and you rocked it!! You were so happy!! Proved to so many that you could do it and that you were Super Human! The greatest comeback I ever saw!! We almost made it little bro! But I guess even flying Super Heros have to land eventually. But I am certain that your energy will never die and your Spirit is eternal, so I ask you still to forgive me for letting you down Warrior. I can’t help but think if I wasnt so engulfed in my own bullshit I could’ve been there for you when you finally took your life after several attempts… F–k this place!! #CantWin #ForLosing🙏”

We are sending our condolences to Ryan Bowers‘ loved ones, and also our positive thoughts to Nick Cannon.

Nick Cannon sent out a tweet on late Thursday night (July 16) that has his fans concerned for his well-being.

The 39-year-old entertainer was fired by ViacomCBS earlier this week due to anti-Semitic statements that he made. He later gave an apology for the things he said, but now he says his community is turning on him for that apology.

“I hurt an entire community and it pained me to my core, I thought it couldn’t get any worse. Then I watched my own community turn on me and call me a sell-out for apologizing. Goodnight. Enjoy Earth 🙏🏾 💙,” Nick tweeted.

Fans are showing their concern based on Nick ending the tweet with “Enjoy Earth.”

One fan replied, “am I the only one worried bout that enjoy earth line?” Another said, “Don’t do anything crazy bro.” Someone else wrote, “This tone concerns me. Peace to you immediately.”

Nick Cannon Says He Is 'Ashamed' For His Anti-Semitic Remarks In Apology

Nick Cannon is owning up to his anti-Semitic remarks in two apologies.

The 39-year-old entertainer came under fire within hours after claiming that Black people were “the true Hebrews” and discussed anti-Semitic conspiracy theories with a guest on his podcast.

Within hours, Nick was dropped by ViacomCBS but went on to defend his remarks.

Now, Nick is apologizing in two statements on social media.

“First and foremost I extend my deepest and most sincere apologies to my Jewish sisters and brothers for the hurtful and divisive words that came out of my mouth during my interview with Richard Griffin,” he wrote. “They reinforced the worst stereotypes of a proud and magnificent people and I feel ashamed of the uninformed and naïve place that these words came from. The video of this interview has since been removed.”

He added, “It’s never hate speech. You can’t be anti-Semitic when we are the Semitic people, when we are the same people who they want to be. That’s our birthright. We are the true Hebrews.”

Later on in a Facebook post, Nick apologized for his remarks again.

“I must apologize to my Jewish Brothers and Sisters for putting them in such a painful position, which was never my intention, but I know this whole situation has hurt many people and together we will make it right,” he penned. “I have dedicated my daily efforts to continuing conversations to bring the Jewish community and the African American community closer together, embracing our differences and sharing our commonalities.”

Following his remarks, Nick gained some support from other celebrities and this one even offered him a job.
