Kevin Hart's SNL Monologue was Offensive

Did anyone else find Kevin Hart’s Saturday Night Live monologue offensive?

Maybe I’m become too sensitive, but Hart told a story about a homeless man who came into a restaurant and put his hand on a customer’s sandwich. Hart says the customer than gave up the sandwich to the homeless person because “ You don’t want to eat a sandwich after a homeless guy had his palm on it. You’re asking for a disease at that point.”

So all homeless people are diseased? Ha! Ha! Let’s poke fun at people who have to live on the street and don’t get to bathe on a regular basis.

He then went on to compare a homeless person to a diseased monkey. Hart said, “You don’t know what an outbreak monkey has, same as the homeless guy. You don’t know what you’ll get. It could be a subtle bump or it could be full-fledged herpes.”
Making fun of politicians and movie stars is good sport, but making fun of the homeless doesn’t really seem clever to me.

Hart said in his monologue that he auditioned for the show as a cast member, but didn’t make it. Good call, Lorne.

I Agree
I thought the same thing while watching it just now. So I googled it to see if anyone else felt the same way. I found it very offensive. Homelessness could happen to ANYONE, and most people experiencing homelessness do not fit the stereotypical "dirty and drunk" image. It was a very ignorant and far from funny monologue. You aren't being too sensitive. You are a good person.

Totally offensive
Thank you for taking note when someone likens people to diseased monkeys. Homelessness is merely a condition of living and it can happen to anyone. His monologue was truly offensive, even more appalling is the lack of any reaction from the general public.

Reality Check!
Not to be insensitive, but he does make a point that deep down most of us would do the same thing, we just don't want to admit it. Join us in admitting we are human and imperfect.

Conscience Check
Granted; because I (and many others) have never been in a situation like this, you might assume the people who are agreeing with the blogger arent being honest with themselves and that we would all behave similarly. Well you're wrong. It was by far the most depraved and inhumane thing I'd ever seen on SNL and I refused to watch the rest of the program because of it. In fact I'm probably done watching the show altogether now along with every show he's ever appeared on including Ellen. It was that terrible. But the very worst of it all is that this fringe blog is his harshest critic. Clearly our society celebrates and is populated with heartless people.
