Kevin Hart Has Put The Final Nail In His Coffin With An Assault Accusation

The latest in a long list of awful things he's been involved in.

It really seems like every time Kevin Hart takes one step forward, he somehow takes two steps back. However, this time he may have gone backwards for good.

After it was announced that he’s making a new reboot of Scrooged that literally no one asked for, TMZ is reporting that he is getting sued by a woman for assault after his security team allegedly knocked her down when exiting a building.

This is just the latest in the long list of awful stuff Hart’s been involved with over the last few years and it’s perhaps time we finally – finally – put the nail in his career’s coffin.

Gonna need some more paper.

To recap all the cancel-worthy stuff Hart’s done in reverse chronological order, this assault accusation comes a few months after he stepped down as the 2019 Academy Awards host after repeatedly refusing to apologise for some old homophobic jokes he shared on Twitter and in his 2010 stand up special, Seriously Funny, only to later sheepishly apologise after he left the gig, presumably because his mum grounded him or something.

The Oscar gig came about a year after he freely admitted to cheating on his then-pregnant wife, Eniko Parish, whom he married after divorcing first wife, Torrei Hart, who he also cheated upon numerous times as per his memoir, I Can’t Make This Stuff Up: Life Lessons. And just as an extra cherry on top of this bitter cake, Hart also revealed in his memoir how his marriage with Torrei was a stormy one filled with assault allegations, alcoholism, and police being called to their house.

Throw in a few instances involving DUIs and embarrassing call outs by fellow celebs (including Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson) for milking otherwise good causes, and you have to wonder just why he’s allowed to be the voice of a mega popular animated kid’s film franchise.

Yes. Yes it is.

Look, people have their flaws and Kevin is prone to moments of weakness like the rest of us. But what makes his sagas so unbearable is his absolute refusal to apologise or take any sense of genuine responsibility for his actions while simultaneously trying to justify his actions.

Irrespective of whether you like his movies and comedy specials, it is perhaps time to put Kevin Hart in the “cancelled” bin because it’s clear he’ll use up every second chance he gets while never being sorry for anything. Sorry Ellen, we’re going against you on this one.

It's Time We Got A Modern Day Reboot Of The Greatest 90's High School Sitcom Ever: Saved By The Bell

It worked for The Karate Kid and Boy Meets World, so why wouldn't it work for Saved by the Bell?

The last few years have seen reboots and continuations of TV shows that have been laying dormant since the 90s, and the results have generally been surprisingly good compared to its movie counterparts.

I don’t think anyone would’ve pegged shows like Twin PeaksWill & GraceThe X-Files, and Roseanne would remain relevant in 2018, let alone still being good. Except Roseanne Barr, she still sucks.

Seeing as how the reboot hammer is still swinging strongly, I think it is the perfect time for the return of a quintessential high school sitcom that basiscally defined the 90’s: Saved by the Bell.

During the recent 2018 Television Critic Association’s Summer Press Tour, Mark-Paul Gosselaar – aka Zack Morris – expressed interest behind doing a reboot of Saved By The Bell.

I’d like to see a version that was worth everyone’s time. There’s a lot of versions that we see that don’t do it justice. But I’d like to see a version, yeah, I’d like to see a version that we’d all agree on.

Hell. Yes.

However, don’t expect a Saved By The Bell reboot to happen anytime soon despite Gosselaar’s interest (and my unwavering enthusiasm) he has no idea what the show would even be in 2018, other than doing something tonally similar to Cobra Kai, the 2018 continuation of the 1984 classic film The Karate Kid.

I do like what Cobra Kai has done. I think that that’s a very interesting way of doing a reboot. I don’t know if whether or not we could do that with our show, but I’d be interested in something that was along the lines of that.

And you know what? I think Gosselaar is right on the money in regards to using Cobra Kai as a model for what a Saved by the Bell reboot could be.

Rather than redo the story all over again, Cobra Kai continues the story from the old Karate Kid movies and features the original characters returning as older versions of themselves alongside a new cast. Tonally, the show is also darker and more in line with 2018 sensibilities than the 1980s campiness of the movies.

This is exactly the right approach for a Saved by the Bell reboot could be.

Plus, this approach worked well for Girl Meets World, the modern day continuation to another quintessential 90s high school sitcom Boy Meets World, so why wouldn’t it work for Saved by the Bell?

High school life in America has changed a LOT over the past 25 years and there’s nothing more fitting than an iconic 90’s high school sitcom coming back with a contemporary perspective on things.

And besides, Gosselaar looks almost exactly the same as he did 25 years ago, so you might as well take advantage of his sorcery-enhanced eternal youth and bring Zack Morris back to offer up some of his trademark fourth wall breaking thoughts on what’s happening in the world today.
