The talk-show host weighed in on a trailer that was released for the documentary, Don’t F**k This Up, which chronicles the behind-the-scenes life of the comedian.
Hart uses the six-part series to address some of the controversies he’s been caught up in since his career took off, including his infidelity and his short-lived stint as the host of the 2019 Academy Awards—a position he stepped down from after video surfaced of him making allegedly homophobic comments.
Williams told viewers she thinks Hart should have left his controversies in the past, saying, “For me, I almost forget about all the crap Kevin Hart has done.” She added, “But he’s bringing it up himself, so you forget about his homophobia and you forget about him cheating on his pregnant wife.”
Viewers on Twitter also weighed in, with some saying they had no interest in watching Hart try to defend himself:
No thanks. I have no interest in watching him play a victim after being homophobic. The irony is too much. He wasn’t the victim in this.— Aaron MW (@Aaronforever87) December 17, 2019
Wait so Kevin Hart is not only homophobic but he cheated on his pregnant wife and Netflix wants us to watch a 6-part redemption series about it because....?— cyn donnelly (@cyndonnelly) December 18, 2019
But others said they were looking forward to seeing the funnyman open up:
