Kevin Hart recently had to let fans know just how successful he was, after people tried to tell him he was “not that funny“. With all his success and accolades, its hard to think he’d be stopping anytime soon. However Brandon T. Jackson feels like a wardrobe choice in his latest film might derail his career completely like it did for Jackson over 10 years ago.
Brandon T. Jackson is an actor and comedian best known for his roles in Roll Bounce, Lottery Ticket, Percy Jackson and the Big Momma’s House franchise. It was the last film that Jackson feels destroyed his very promising career in Hollywood. In it, he and Martin Lawrence both got up in drag to play the father/son duo undercover as two women.
In a 2019 interview with Comedy Hype, Jackson claims this role completely ruined his career. “Everything went wrong when I put on that dress” he says in the interview. He looked at his career at the time before Big Momma and the time after. He recalls it as a negative changing point in his career and says his personal life was in shambles. While he acknowledges that it was the height of his career and that he was honored playing Martin Lawrence son.
With that experience in his rearview he feels qualified to critique Kevin Hart and his latest role, where he wears a school girl outfit for a scene. Hart has had his fair share of opinions in recent weeks stemming from a series of interviews he’s done where people have deemed him “not funny enough for the aggravation he be causing”.
Hart did not take likely to these taunts, and in a series of tweets bragged about his success listing off his accomplishments in comedy and film. “The “He’s not funny” slander is the best….this is for you. I have 3 stand up comedy specials that fall in the top 10 highest grossing comedy specials of all time….2 of my specials are in the top 3 of all time.”
Well Jackson is the latest to blast Hart, pointing out the scene in his recent film and how it might be time for him to take a time out. “Love you bro, but I walked away from this and now, Yah will exalt my horn is HIS name. You are gonna have to sit down for a while in the spiritual penalty box!! Yah is mad at you, but I’ll help you through it brother.”
