Kevin Hart recently dropped by Power 105.1 FM‘s “Breakfast Club” to chat about a variety topics, including his upbringing, Bill Cosby the ongoing Bill Maher n-word debacle.

Hart stopped short of calling Maher a racist, but he told Charlamagne Tha God that he felt Bill was too comfortable when he blurted out the word on his HBO show:

“It’s inappropriate. It’s inappropriate, and it’s not right,” Hart claimed. “So to say that — to say that in the way you said it, as comfortable as you said it in a joking form, you’re wrong.”

Hart clearly thought the joke was in poor taste, and he continued to vent his opinion on the issue whilst clarifying that he thinks Maher has learned a lesson:

“Now, granted, you can issue all the apologies you want — he says it — you know he says it around his friends. That’s something that he’s not gonna say anymore, but for you to say it on your platform — that’s tacky. That’s tacky,” Hart said.
