Mike Epps GOES THERE: Once Again Calls Out Kevin Hart For Being Not So Funny, Kevin Throws Back A Read

Veteran comic and actor Mike Epps just went there–again. Four years after calling fellow entertainer Kevin Hart “overrated”, the ‘Friday’ legend has now gone and said that “everybody” is funnier than Hart in an Instagram post.

Its not the first time Epps–and plenty of others–have said something similar.

According to Comedyhype.com, the drama kicked off when a fan on Instagram commented that Eddie Murphy is still funnier than Kevin Hart. Mike Epps responded: “Sh*t everybody is…”.

That led Hart, who is more sensitive than I imagined, to hit below the belt–right in the pocket area to be exact: “It’s a shame that not everybody is not selling tickets like me tho,” he wrote in the comments section.

Kevin Hart has been a top-selling comic for several years. Back in 2011, the Philly native broke Eddie Murphy’s decades-long standing ticket sales record by pocketing over $1.1 million for a two-day Los Angeles tour stop of “Laugh At My Pain.”

But Mike Epps has a theory about that, suggesting that Kevin Hart might be getting “forced on people”.

“One thing about Hollywood is, if you’re in a movie and you’re good in it and it don’t make money, guess what? You won’t get recognized,” said Epps in a 2014 interview with HuffPost. Epps is best known for his roles in the “Friday” film franchise.

“But it’s a lot of bad movies that comedians get in and they’re not good in them and they make money, and then people just keep putting them in movies.

“In this business right here, guess what — sometimes marketing can be bigger than talent. This business is not about being funny. This business is about being forced on people,” Epps continued.

That’s the background. Now back to the most recent mess.

Kevin wasn’t content with just pointing out that he has the bigger bag–he also decided to write a multi-sentence-long read on top of that:

All I can say is that your a sad individual. I talked to you several times face to face in attempts to put the B.S behind us. I even reached out to u like a man and tried to get to the bottom of your bitterness. When will you realize that my success has nothing to do with you or your journey. Unlike you I want to see you win…I’m actually a fan champ. I’m praying for the day that you will realize that so many of us entertainers have a crabs in a barrell mentallity. You are the biggest crab I know…I will continue to shine and continue to make history and continue to do comedy at the HIGHEST level. If that makes u sick then so be it….I will hand u a throw up bucket because this next year that I’m about to have will be my best Mr bitter…..While u worry about this Grown Little man please know and understand that all I am worried about is SUCCESS!!!! #CatchUp

Mike Epps then responded to that response:

you still starving to be a victim? I said it “wasn’t press worthy” and here you go as usual trying to show the world how great you are because people pick on you. Gtfoh! You have a long line of sh-t to clean up before you can hand me a MF bucket. I’ve been doing this sh-t 25+ yrs Mr. Victim. Don’t get too cute lil brother. This sh-t is a lifetime achievement. & stop following my comments around the World Wide Web. How do you find this sh-t? I talk about everybody but you always take it personal. The whole internet talk about you, so don’t stop here you got a lot of responding to do. And for everybody reading this me and Kevin been knowing each other too long so this is not a beef. If it was I would have never responded. Again, like I told you face to face Congrats on everything man. You seem to be a great person… but I stilll don’t think yo ass funny.

OK, this could go on for days. These two have been doing this for a long time so its probably not the last time we’ll hear about something like this between them.
Fans on social media are now debating who is the funnier comedian. But one fan had a theory that might put a fitted cap on the whole dispute:
