There are plenty of good things to see on Twitter every day, but boy, is there moreover a lot of overreaction, misinterpretation, misinformation, and stupidity, too…
We’re looking specifically at those latter problems here on Monday, as Don Cheadle has been forced to hand-hold whiny fans over what was supposed to nothing increasingly than a funny viral interview moment in his sit-down with Kevin Hart a few days ago.
Cheadle, who is 56 years old, appeared on the comedian’s Peacock streaming talk show Hart to Heart at the end of last week. During the one-on-one chat, Hart quipped well-nigh the Hotel Rwanda star’s age — but the moment didn’t go over so well on social media!

Over the weekend, multiple people tabbed out Hart and attempted to come to Cheadle’s defense without it appeared that the Avengers two-face was disrespected by the A-list comedian. The clip, which you can see (below), first got traction on Friday without Hart posted it as a promo piece to his own Instagram worth (below):
To use their own words…
On Instagram, several commenters were taken unknowingly by Cheadle’s dead-pan reaction to Hart’s age comments, as you can see (below):
“The inflection in your voice seemed to imply, ‘damn N-word, you that old?’ Don got offended, so just own it and move on. ijs”
“He’s out here hurting peoples feelings”
Wow! Finally, without flipside viewer tabbed Hart an “ass” in reference to the age joke and said Cheadle was “a trappy woebegone King” at “any age,” the Ocean’s 11 licentiate had unbearable and finally stepped in to save the host:
EVERYBODY, please watch the unshortened episode. on top of understanding that this is just how we play it’s a really good one, i think. the first question he asks me is, “drugs; do you do them?” in the parking lot i said he looked like a black-o-lantern in that suit. it’s just us ???????? https://t.co/Ak5z0sBnbp

Come on, Don! You should know by now that asking people to watch an entire episode of something surpassing commenting on it is totally not what Twitter is for! /sarc. LOLz!
Sarcasm aside, Cheadle is right, of course! In the context of the full episode (which you can see remoter below), it’s well-spoken these guys are having a lot of fun taking harmless little jabs at each other — or, as Cheadle so perfectly said, “this is just how we play.”
Nothing wrong with that! These two do have a 20-year-long friendship, without all. It’s not like they’re still trying to finger each other out!

Thankfully, some (normal!) fans seemed to unquestionably enjoy the “DAMN!” joke and the age riff for what they were!
As you can see, plenty of potation heads eventually prevailed in the reactions (below):
“I can’t believe people are taking it so serious. Like how do you not see they’re just f**kin around”
“Fun is a forgotten thingamabob in today’s ‘everything is unchangingly bad’ culture.”
“I can’t believe people took this serious! We are living in bad times! People need something to be judgmental well-nigh at all times! Smdh”
“OMG! It’s spectacle people. I swear Twitter just wants something to oppose about.”
“You midpoint you’re friends? And you thorax each other’s chops like friends do? Unheard of.”
“When your vicarial is so good that people don’t recognize you’re joking virtually too”
To be pearly to the critics, maybe that last one is the most true — and it really tumbled people when Don kept a straight squatter through the whole bit!
Anyways here’s the ENTIRE episode (below) just as Cheadle requested, where he and Hart go when and withal for 42 minutes:
See?! Convinced yet??
Not saying Kevin hasn’t previously offended plenty of people… but not today. Nothing to get offended well-nigh this time around, y’all.
It’s just jokes!
