Kevin Hart remembers the time he pissed off Michael Jordan
Michael Jordan is a tough target to roast.
There's not a lot of entryways into humiliating a man who, by all standards, is the picture of athletic, business and social dominance. There is 40 feet of cigar smoke and stacked $100 bills between him and the rest of society.
But Kevin Hart tried anyway. The comedian went on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Monday night and told a story about the time he went onstage at Jordan's own charity auction and torched him in front of a less-than-amused crowd.
Naturally, he targeted Jordan's only weakness: fashion.
"I lock eyes with Mike, he's in the front row, and I start teasing him," Hart said. "I was like, 'Man, what age do you get to where it's okay to wear your pants that high and nobody addresses it?'"
Hart went on to flambe Jordan's tiny lip-stache. Mike apparently wasn't happy.
"Nobody's laughing," Hart said. "[Jordan's] actually giving me the look like 'You gonna keep on going? You ain't gonna stop?'"
Somebody had to do it, Kevin. And you took the charge upon yourself.
