Kevin Hart, a beloved actor and comedian, has been injured and is taking to social media to warn others. Keep reading to learn more about what happened to Kevin Hart and what message he has for his fans.
Kevin Hart recently turned 44 years old. But as always, the actor feels young at heart. But now, he went through an incident that changed his perspective on what aging is like.
He took to social media to say, “Ladies and gentlemen, the age 40 is real. To all my men, women out there that are 40 years old and above, it’s not a game,” Hart shared in his post. “Respect that age, or that age will make you respect it. It just made me respect it.”
“I’m in a wheelchair. Why? Well, because I tried to jump out there and do some young stuff… and I was told to sit my ass down,” the comedian went on to explain.
All of this came from an ill-fated sporting event. Hart had challenged ex-New England Patriots star Stevan Ridley to a 40-yard dash, and it did not end well for him. The comedian then went on to explain how this situation even came about.
“This debate was based on who’s faster. Those that know me know, I’m pretty fast,” Hart recalled with some humor. “Stevan said, ‘Kevin, there ain’t no way you’re gonna beat me.’ Stevan is an ex-NFL running back, who played for the New England Patriots. Very good guy… [So] we get out there, we go run the 40-yard dash.”
“Guys, I blew all my s**t,” Hart revealed, before he went on to give details about his injuries. “I tore my lower abdomen, my abductors are torn, I don’t know what that is but I tore them, I tore those, too. I can’t walk.”
“What are we competing for at this age? What am I doing? Why did I even race? Stupidest s**t ever, now I can’t walk,” Hart said. “What was I thinking, son? I’ve got to be the stupidest man alive.”
In the caption for the video, he simply wrote, “44 and sitting my ass down!!!!! I got to be the dumbest man alive!!!!! What the f**k am I doing???? I blew my s**t….I’m done. FML.”
His famous friends had his back. Actor Will Smith commented, “Getting older is REAL!! Heal Up, Kev!!”

Ridley also posted the video to his story and added comments. He wrote, “I saw @TomBrady do it at your age so I figured you had the juice too big bro!”
But of course, Ridley continued with an apology and said, “My bad @KevinHart4Real!” he wrote. “Heal up and keep making us all laugh!”
