"When are black celebs like @KevinHart4real & @MarlonWayans gonna stop doing stereotypical movies?" @tashyonlaneigh asked. 

The question must have touched a nerve with Hart, because he immediately responded.

Here's the thing—not every movie is for everybody. But that doesn't mean there wasn't some truth to @tashyonlaneigh's question. It seems as though when it comes to black comedies, there's only one type of formula, and Hart and Wayans seem to have mastered it.
