Kevin Hart’s recent interview with Rolling Stone is showing a not-so-surprising side to the comedian when it comes to raising his son. Hart thinks that his job as a father is to make sure his son doesn’t ‘turn out’ to be gay.
“One of my biggest fears is my son growing up and being gay. That’s a fear. Keep in mind, I’m not homophobic. . . . Be happy. Do what you want to do. But me, as a heterosexual male, if I can prevent my son from being gay, I will,” Hart stated.
Now how exactly does one prevent their child from being gay? Is there a gay-prevention parenting class?
“It’s about my fear. I’m thinking about what I did as a dad, did I do something wrong, and if I did, what was it? Not that I’m not gonna love my son or think about him any differently. The funny thing within that joke is it’s me getting mad at my son because of my own insecurities — I panicked. It has nothing to do with him, it’s about me. That’s the difference between bringing a joke across that’s well thought-out and saying something just to ruffle feathers,” Hart continued.
I’m thinking Hart should probably focus more on his son not sounding ignorant like him when he grows up, or even making sure his son realizes that there’s nothing wrong if he ‘turned out’ to be gay.
Clutchettes, do you think that should be Hart’s or any parent’s concern about their child?
