Comedian Kevin Hart is by far having the best year ever. The comedian has starred in hit movies this year, is expecting a child with his new wife, and has even launched his own comedy network. Recently, Kevin made headlines again but for reasons that are not so funny. Apparently, a fan of Kevin Hart is alleging that he was beat up by Kevin’s security and then was called a “b*tch, p*ssy, coward”. According to TMZ,
“Jay Collins claims in a new lawsuit he was an invited VIP guest at Kevin’s Philadelphia concert on August 29, 2015 when he was “aggressively approached and detained by stadium security.” He does not say in the lawsuit why he attracted the attention and ire of the hired muscle.
The suit claims stadium security handed him over to Kevin’s personal security, and that’s when the brutality began. Collins says Kevin’s security threatened to taze him and then jammed the prongs of the tazer into his face, neck and back.
Collins says it didn’t end there. Security then threw him to the ground and struck him in the head, neck and shoulders, and kneed his rib cage for bad measure. On the way out he says they called him a “bitch, pussy, coward.”
He wants more than $50k … probably a lot more. He’s suing Kevin because he says the comedian has to take responsibility for his people.”
So far there has been no word regarding the validity of the allegations from Kevin or his camp.
So, what are your thoughts? Do you think Kevin should be held responsible for his security guards’ actions? Do you feel that Kevin was even aware that the incident took place? Should the law suit be against the company the security guards work for instead? Let me know in the comments.
