Kevin Hart, Will Ferrell Address Claims That Get Hard Is Racist and Homophobic

HitFix’s Louis Virtel asked the Get Hard co-stars if they thought some of the blue humor in their forthcoming movie was mildly mean-spirited or dated. (The film has received a fairly consistent stream of backlash since its SXSW premiere, for what some critics are calling unnecessarily homophobic and racist quips.) Hart’s and Ferrell’s answers are variations of “Sorry, not sorry” and “The buck doesn’t stop here.” Get Hard comes out Friday.
