Kevin Hart thinks people need to lose the ‘attitude’ of cancel culture.

The Night School actor faced widespread criticism in 2018 over past homophobic tweets – which led to him cancelling plans to host the Academy Awards – but Kevin thinks the public need to be more ‘realistic’ in their expectations of entertainers.

He said: ‘You gotta get to a point where you become more realistic.

‘What I mean about being realistic is: nobody’s perfect, nobody’s going to be.

‘We’re living in a time where we’re just expecting perfect, as if people don’t slip and fall down the steps, or everybody walks straight all the time.

‘But you stumble … it’s weird to really hold people at a level that they never asked to be held at.’

The Jumanji: The Next Level star thinks people need to be able to ‘grow’ without being held ‘accountable’ for ‘childish behaviour’ when they’re younger.

Speaking to OprahMag.com, he explained: ‘If babies came out with all the knowledge, then what’s the point of going from age one through 21?

‘You get to 21, and there’s a celebration of you now being an adult, because you spent those years being a kid, doing the things that a kid is supposed to do.

‘So you can’t hold me accountable for things that I did as a kid that were childish behaviour, at 21, when I’m now an adult … well from 21, to 31, I was a young adult, so I didn’t know what life was going to be like as an adult, so I messed up as a young adult.’
