Kevin Hart says he’s tired of taking “sh–” and he’s bringing receipts to silence his critics.

The actor and comedian went off on a Tweetstorm Tuesday morning, in response to social media users who called him out by saying “he’s not funny.”

The Ride Along and The Upside star insisted he normally he tries to ignore the criticism, but not this time.

“Sometimes you gotta sit back & laugh at some of the sh– that you hear….and I hear it all,” he began.

About 40 minutes later he followed it up with: “I got time today….”

He returned with: “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.”

Hart then added: “I have been the highest grossing comedian in entertainment for years now….I have also been the highest grossing comedian in the box office with over 4 billion in earnings.”

Next came a post saying, “I have also turned my comedic talent into a place of business and branding and radio and other revenue streams….The hate/slander fuels me to do more.”

“You guys are what makes this business fun….because it’s not about getting to the top….it’s about doing your best to stay on top after you get there,” he added.

“I rarely talk sh–….but I felt the need to today. Stop believing these headlines and read the actual articles…. you guys fall for the banana in the tail pipe trick every damn time,” Hart said to his critics.

People began to call the stand-up comic out after he shared his thoughts on “cancel culture” in a weekend interview with the U.K.’s The Sunday Times.

He was quoted as bragging about being “talented as f–k,” and saying he “personally doesn’t give a sh-t” about being canceled.

Harts’ braggadocious comments did not sit well with some social media users who ripped, slammed and blasted him on Twitter.

The Hollywood heavyweight previously faced being canceled back in December 2018, when social media sleuths resurfaced old homophobic tweets and jokes from years earleir, after he was announced as host of the 2019 Academy Awards.

Days later, Hart stepped down from the Oscars hosting gig amid backlash.
