The Box Office royal Kevin Hart has woken up to find himself at the heart of new controversy after he tweet he published about ladies of the melanated persuasion was unearthed on Twitter.
What he had to say about black women and their credit scores?
#handsdown Light-skinned women usually have better credit than a dark-skinned women…Broke ass dark hoes….lol

Hart published the tweet in 2010 (aged 30) and faced little backlash in the days following its publication.
Unfortunately for him, his decision to use Twitter to criticise Starbucks customer who planned to boycott the company over its treatment of African-American patrons this week drew more attention to his account prompting the drama he is now facing.
He is yet to issue a statement.
I will never understand the colorisim within the black community fr ..

Nah, he knows and he hates himself so much that his self-hatred manifests the only way he knows.
It’s sad to see this from any of our people.

We should’ve gotten Kevin hart the fuck outta here years ago, he’s not funny and if you think he’s funny you’re probably a cornball ass coon just like him.

Those dark skin vs. light skin jokes were never funny to me. Kevin Hart must have really been struggling for laughs back then if that’s what he had to resort to for material.

I really cannot fathom being black and being a full on coon for white folks. I don’t think I could sleep at night.

As this tweet was published eight years ago Hart may be unaware that black women, the women he is referring to, now stand as the fastest-growing group of entrepreneurs in the United States.
