Will Ferrell's 'Get Hard' Stirs Controversy With Gay, Racial Jokes

LOS ANGELES (Variety.com) - Kevin Hart introduced his latest comedy "Get Hard" at SXSW on Monday night by telling fans to give him their reviews on Twitter. "If you don't like it," Hart said with a sarcastic bite, "what I want you to do is go in the middle of the street and kill yourself." His co-star Will Ferrell added that he wasn't as involved with social media. "Send me handwritten notes," Ferrell said. "Hopefully, on nice stationery."

He might be getting a lot of mail. "Get Hard," which Warner Bros. opens on March 27 , is packed with gay and racial jokes that had the audience in Austin laughing and cringing at the same time.
