Well, nobody had to ask how Kevin Hart’s night went. The comedian apparently had the time of his life at the Super Bowl LII on Sunday, drinking and celebrating as his home team, the Philadelphia Eagles, played their way to victory in an astonishing upset against the New England Patriots.
The Philly native first crashed the on-field NFL Network set after the Eagles’ 41-33 win, interrupting an interview and accidentally dropping an f-bomb on live TV.
“Philadelphia’s a great city. I thought, I hope this is an example of what we can do. We gave a fuck,” Hart said before realizing what he had said and putting his hand to his mouth.
“I’m out,” he joked, laughing before walking away.
Cameras then caught the comedian attempting to get on stage to help the team receive their first trophy, only to be blocked by security. Hart tries to argue and push past with no avail.
Early Monday morning, Hart posted an Instagram video to explain his behavior, acknowledging that he had been drinking at the time but was too excited about his team’s win to care about any backlash.
“When alcohol is in your system, you do dumb stuff,” he joked in the video. “Me trying to go on stage with the trophy ...definitely in the top two stupidest things I’ve ever done but who cares? The Eagles won the Super Bowl.
He said that his wife, Eniko Parrish, had warned him not to go onstage, but he could not be swayed.
“It didn’t work out good,” Hart said of his attempts, before referencing the security guard who blocked him. “That man did his job, didn’t he?”
