*Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson’s action-comedy “Central Intelligence” opened with $34.5M in its domestic debut, and $6.8m in 24 overseas markets, giving the $50m action comedy a $41.3m global bow. While promoting the movie on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”, Hart recalled the time Michael Jordan asked him to host one of his charity events in Las Vegas. During his set, Kevin decided to joke about Jordan’s personal appearance and style choice.
“So I get up there and I’m like, ‘Hey, man, loosen up, you’re here to have a good time.’ So as I’m saying stuff, I lock eyes with Mike. He’s in the front row, and I start teasing him. I was like, ‘Man, what age do you get to where it’s okay to wear your pants that high and nobody addresses it?’ I said, ‘You’re telling me I’m the only one that think Mike is past the legal limit at the waist?’ It was fun jokes! He had the little square mustache at the time and I was like, ‘What is that?’ I said, ‘It looks like a thumbprint.’ Nobody is laughing! It got to the point where nobody is laughing, right? He’s looking straight. He’s actually giving me a look like, ‘You gonna keep on going? You ain’t gonna stop?’ I don’t care. I’m having a good time. I was laughing. I may or may not have been drunk at the time,” said Hart.
The Urban Daily notes that Hart’s heckling ended when he got off stage and Jordan “gave him a very strong handshake and told him to have a good day.” Kevin alleges that he hasn’t spoken to or seen Jordan since.
