Kevin Hart Mistaken For Usain Bolt By NBC - Reveals That He Tested Positive For COVID-19 Earlier This Year

Kevin Hart had a busy week. First, he said in a stand-up set over the weekend that he tested positive for COVID-19 early in the pandemic. He shared, “The problem is that I had it around the same time as Tom Hanks, and I couldn’t say anything because he’s more famous than I am.” Then just yesterday, NBC posted a news article about Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt testing postive for COVID-19, but they mistakenly used a photo of Kevin Hart for the story! Kevin Hart got on Instagram and said, "No comment ----‍♂️----‍♂️----‍♂️----‍♂️.....I must of gotten really fast & tall overnight... P.S this is Disrespectful on so many levels....All you can do is laugh."
