Kevin Hart Deemed Culturally Insensitive Over ‘Cowboys & Indians’ Party

Kevin Hart and Eniko Parrish at the Los Angeles premiere of 'Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle' held at the TCL Chinese Theater in Hollywood, USA on December 11, 2017.

After sharing images from their son, Kenzo’s, first birthday party, Kevin and Eniko Hart are being called out for what many have deemed cultural appropriation.

Eniko shared photos from the “Cowboys and Indians” birthday party on Thanksgiving Day, complete with Native American blankets, cowboy hats and teepees.

“Zos cowboys & indians party was nothing but amazing! Thanks to everyone for coming.. we love you guys,” she captioned an image of guests draped in Native American garb.

While some fans of the comedian wished baby Kenzo well, others took offense at the themed party, arguing that someone’s culture shouldn’t be worn as a costume.

“Changing the caption and deleting comments does not make your ‘cowboys and Indians’ party ok. Shame on you @enikohart and @KevinHart4real Culture isn’t a costume,” read one tweet.

“Throwin a ‘Cowboys & Indians’ birthday party on ‘Thanksgiving’ celebrates genocide, white supremacy, & slavery. R those the things u @KevinHart4real & @enikohart represent & are teaching to your child?” user @solomamihood added. “Would it be ok to throw a Master & slave birthday party? nope.”

There were others, however, who felt the backlash was unwarranted.

The Harts have yet to address the backlash.
