Looks like comedians are united against the whole Kathy Griffin situation. Comedian-actor Kevin Hart recently shared his views on Bill Maher using the N-word on the air and Kathy Griffin posing with fake blooded Trump head.

With anything comes change, and I think the times are different now and As a comedian, you have to understand and respect that.
He added also showed the changed that Era of social media has brought:

I’m not in a place to do that. I won’t throw any negativity that way, but I will say that certain things can just not be tasteful
He further added:
I don’t think Bill Maher is a racist, but you know the consequences of using the word, and you know how many people view into your show. It was stupid.
Afterward, he took a few moment to show his support on Kathy Griffin Issue, he offered up an advice to Kathy Griffin and said
“I get that it was a joke. It wasn’t received well, you apologize, you step away from it.
We all know Kevin on his standup acts as a comic makes a lot of offensive jokes but they are mostly on himself and what he tried to pursue in simple words means that he feels for both of the celebrities as they just tried to move a card a little forward and the act backfired but according to Hart, that is what a comedian is supposed to do. They are going to make mistakes and learn from it. Sometimes people don't usually laugh at jokes and may feel offended but that doesn't mean anyone should stop doing comedy and loose his/her jobs.
