Kevin Hart's Offensive Black Women Cartoon
Is Hart being sabotaged prior to the release of 'Think Like a Man'?
UPDATE: Kevin Hart has nothing to do with the "Message To Black Women" cartoon.
Today he tweeted:
"ATTENTION EVERYONE.......I have been getting google alerts all day about a cartoon that's being credited to me that talks about black woman."
"I have nothing to do with this cartoon, I am not behind it or involved with it in anyway shape or form!!! THIS CARTOON IS FRAUDULENT"
"With that being said if the promotion of this CARTOON is not stopped ASAP I will be taking legal actions against all parties that r involved."

Comedian Kevin Hart has a message for black women that doesn’t come off as humorous as he had intended it to be; or maybe humor wasn’t his intent.
In the cartoon illustration below, Hart depicts three angry looking, half-dressed black women dismissing a well-dressed, well-to-do black man, calling him a “geeky nigga with no game.”
He is basically trying to say that being a strong black woman doesn’t mean walking around with a bad attitude.
Perhaps, not so bad in theory, yet, the illustration also suggests that black women’s bad attitude persona is the reason why black men date white women.
Come on, not again.
Even more disturbing, is how the women are depicted in the drawing compared to the fully clothed, relatively preppy dressed white woman.
This isn’t the first time Hart has been offensive to black women. In a previous twitter post, Hart had this to say about women with darker complexions:
“#handsdown Light-skinned women usually have better credit than a dark-skinned woman…Broke as dark hoes…Lol”
After receiving backlash from his fans, Hart told dark-skinned women to stop being so sensitive, and to remember he’s a comedian.
