Kevin Hart's 'SNL' Monologue Sparks Controversy, Says Moms Aren't 'Fun'

Kevin Hart‘s opening monologue from his Saturday Night Live hosting gig has sparked some controversy.

The comedian spoke about gender roles and his views on the difference between moms and dads.

“You have to take your hat off, when it comes to dealing with kids, to the women. Women, I give you so much credit. Like, you guys do so much. I take my hat off to you. … But the one thing that you’re not, the one thing that you’re not, is fun,” Kevin said.

“The fun becomes the hardest job because the kid doesn’t know how to shut the fun off,” Kevin continued.

Twitter reacted to the monologue with criticism including, “Given the recent problematic specifics of Kevin Hart’s personal life, this would not have been the monologue direction I’d have taken. #SNL,” as well as, “2017 has seen incredible progress for women. Kevin Hart’s opening monologue belongs in 2016. Disappointed in @nbcsnl for a #sexist opening monologue #snl”
