Things got ugly for comedian Kevin Hart after he reportedly referred to his 15-year-old daughter as a "hoe" but later cleared he called out his daughter’s “hoe-like activity.” The controversy began when Hart made his contentious comments on his new Netflix comedy special ‘Zero Fucks Given’, which is streaming currently on the site. During his stand-up comedy act he was accused of disparaging Black women and delivering misogynistic jokes, according to reports. At one point during the act that had a meager live audience in the room, Hart was blasted for referring to his 15-year-old daughter as an "hoe" as she reportedly showed interest in multiple boys.

Hart said during the act mentioning how quickly his daughter changes the boys she likes. "A week goes by, 'Dad, I don't like Rob no more.' I like this boy named Tim,'" Hart said. He continued on what he perceives from this, "Instantly, in my mind, I said, 'My daughter an hoe. This is hoe shit. This is hoe shit. Hoe activity right in front of my face.'"

After the act that also appeared on the audiovisual app, Clubhouse, a number of women slammed Hart for the remark, which they considered as sexist. As per Complex, Hart then jumped into his defense and questioned his critics' intent. He reportedly suggested they simply wanted to see his downfall. Hart also referenced comedian Hannibal Buress who called Bill Cosby a rapist in 'The Howard Stern Show'.

After the controversy and being slammed as sexist for his act, Hart took to Instagram on November 28 and explained to clear the air on what he meant. He insisted he never called his teen daughter "hoe". The star captioned the video saying, "THIS IS NOT AN APOLOGY....this is common sense.....also THIS IS WHY I MADE THIS SPECIAL!! This is why....now go stream that b**ch!"

The comedian said in the video, "We gotta stop. Stop with the false narrative, it's a false narrative that’s being created. If you were in the Clubhouse and a part of the conversation, this wasn't about Black women. It wasn’t about me going against Black. The question was asked about the joke about my daughter and me referencing my daughter having hoe-like activity. I gave an answer to it. Here’s what it is, guys: I'm not calling my daughter an hoe, I'm saying what she did is hoe-like activity." He added, "I called three former hoes I know and asked them, 'Is this hoe-like activity?' ... Stop with the false narratives and the clickbait and the back-and-forth."

Now despite Hart clearing the haze on his jokes, people on the Internet are hell-bent to cancel him. Many took to Twitter to allege he made demeaning comments on his daughter and women and seem unconvinced by his explanations. A user asked on Hart's, “Do u know how damaging it is to a girl to have her father call her a h*e. Kevin hart is canceled forever.” A user suggested to Hart, "Slut-shaming your daughter?? Kevin Hart’s daughter gone grow up & be like f**k your money. He not gone know what to do. Kevin get your relationship with your daughter better." Another user wrote against Hart, “If y’all would’ve canceled Kevin Hart for being a terrible person YEARS AGO, we wouldn’t be at this point—This clubhouse thing didn’t need to happen.”

A user quipped, “Kevin Hart thinking he can’t be canceled is comical. sorry to those who had to deal with a dude.” A user wrote against Hart, "For Kevin Hart to even utter Cosby’s name in the context he did is disgraceful. We need to hold each other accountable, not uplift each other in our most toxic forms. Forget Cosby... He should be working on learning how to respect black women." A user felt his jokes were disrespectful, “I really didn’t care for Kevin Hart’s newest stand-up. It was to watered down and disrespectful for me. There were a few funny moments tho.”
