Kevin Hart Asks ‘National’ To Give The Bus Driver Who Took A Selfie A “Pass”



Kevin Hart is doing all the can to get the bus driver, who was suspended without pay for taking a selfie with him, a “pass.” In a video posted on Instagram, the comedian begs the National Rental Car to bring back on Genesha Bradley.

“This message is for the National Rental Car. It’s been brought to my attention that Genesha has been suspended for taking a selfie with me. I’m asking National to please give this woman a pass. I love National. And if I would’ve seen me I would’ve took a selfie with me too. Come on, have some compassion,” he said in the video.


I’m asking “National Rental Car” to please give Ganesha Douglas a pass. She has learned from her mistake. She nor I intended for this to happen. #LoveMyFans

Last week, Bradley was driving a shuttle bus at LAX when she spotted Hart outside, so she jumped out to take a quick snapshot. According to Genesha, the passengers on board were totally supportive her taking the photo.

Netflix’s ‘Step Sisters’ Is ‘Bring It On’ … But Way More Woke!



Netflix is getting ready to “Bring It On” … in more ways than one. The streaming service’s new flick Step Sisters is reminiscent of the 90s dance film, but delves deeper into racial themes like cultural appropriation, tokenization and interracial dating.

In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.

“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”

What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.

“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”

Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
