Kevin Hart explains why he tried to crash Eagles’ trophy presentation
Kevin Hart is offering an explanation for his hijinks after the Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl on Sunday night.
The actor-comedian and Philly native took to Instagram on Monday to discuss the incident where he was hilariously turned away by security as he tried to make his way onto the stage for the Vince Lombardi Trophy presentation.
“To all the kids out there, I just wanna say, ‘Don’t drink.'” Hart said in the video post. “You know, when alcohol is in your system, you do dumb stuff. Me trying to go onstage with the trophy [is] definitely in the top-two stupidest things I’ve ever done. But who cares? The Eagles won the Super Bowl. Yeah I’m still a little tipsy, but the world can kiss my a–.
“My wife was the first one to say, ‘Babe, don’t go up there,'” he added. “I told my wife, ‘No honey, chill out. I gotta be up there with my city.'”
Indeed, Hart attempting to crash the stage only be to stonewalled by a much larger security guard definitely made for quite a scene in the postgame chaos.

After being denied entry to the stage, the “Ride Along” star then went on the air with NFL Network, admitted he was drunk, and then got kicked off for dropping a curse word.
