Kevin Hart has dubbed himself the “dumbest man alive” after tore a muscle and fell into a wheelchair after a run-in with a former NFL star.
The comedian explained on social media Wednesday how a 40-foot dash against former Patriots running back Stephen Ridley left him badly injured.
in Instagram videoThe father of four told his 178 million followers: “44 and sit my ass!!!!! I have to be the dumbest man alive!!!!! what do i do fk ???? I blew…. I’m done. FML.”
“I’m in a wheelchair. Why? Well, because I tried to jump in there and do some little things,” Hart said, adding that he was now temporarily unable to walk.
“This discussion was based on who is the fastest. Those who know me know that I am very fast,” Hart continued. “Kevin, there is no way you can beat me.” Stephen is a former NFL player [who] He played for the New England Patriots. A very good man.”
Hart said the blunder resulted in him blowing “all I’ve got”—which he also attributed to his advancing age.
To all men and women 40 and over. It’s not a game, respect that age, Hart shared.
“Respect this age, or else this age will make you respect it. I just had to respect it. This is just a PSA because I know people might see me out. And I don’t want you to worry, but I’m in a wheelchair.
The “Hart to Heart” host said he tore his lower abdomen, as well as his hip abductors.
“I don’t know what it is, but I tore them up, and I tore them too. I can’t walk,” he said, adding, “Tell you what I just lost, son. I’ve missed every opportunity I had to race you any time soon. I finish. What are we competing for at this age? What do I do? Why did you even race? Dumbest thing ever, now I can’t walk.
Soon after Hart’s position, Ridley made his stand Instagram story To make fun of the comedian’s accident.
“I’ve seen @TOMBRADY do that at your age, so I thought you had so much fun bro!” Ridley wrote, referring to former New England Patriots captain Tom Brady. “My bad @KEVINHARTFOREAL! Heal and peek at what makes us all laugh!
