Are we living in 1950?
No? Well, that is what Kevin Hart seems to think. I mean, you would probably understand what I’m saying if you watched this week’s episode of Saturday Night Live. It was all going okay when he started to joke about parenting in his usual style.
However, it all started to go downhill when he said that dads were usually ‘the fun ones.’ Now I don’t know about you, but I am quite tired of this old stereotype. Following is what he said.
You never heard a kid say, ‘I can’t wait to get home and play with my mom. You ain’t never heard that. ‘Can’t wait for mommy and me time.’ That don’t exist. Don’t no kids say that. All the fun responsibility lies on the shoulder of the father.
People hate his opening monologue probably because he cheated on his pregnant wife. She allegedly did forgive him, but the Internet is nowhere close to that. And his ‘jokes’ just hit the nail in the coffin.
Apparently, Moms aren’t fun.
Kevin Hart, do u know it's 2017?? This cold open would have been funny in 1950 #SNL

Hard pass fro me too.
Gosh, what a groundbreaking monologue about traditional gender roles and how dads are more “fun” than moms, Kevin Hart. Hard pass. #SNL

I am guessing they were all out that day.
#SNL Women of SNL cast…how the hell did you allow that awful, sexist Kevin Hart monologue to happen??? REALLY???
— DebraDG (@DebraDG) December 17, 2017
Nah. It’s too sexist for even 2016, and that is saying something.

Cheating is not something you ‘forget.’
Given the recent problematic specifics of Kevin Hart’s personal life, this would not have been the monologue direction I’d have taken. #SNL

He probably had a drink too many.
Kevin Hart is annoying. His whole SNL opening monologue was just a bunch of dry ass reinforced gender stereotypes. Heteronormative af too. Can we leave him in 2017? #SNL
