Move Over, Jamie Foxx: Kevin Hart May Also Be A Clone

Move Over, Jamie Foxx: Kevin Hart May Also Be A Clone

“Send in the clones” used to be a hacky comedian punchline, but now it appears to be a rallying cry. In certain corners of the Internet, fans are convinced that their favorite comics have been replaced by duplicates. It’s easy to laugh off, but join us for a jump down the rabbit hole — you too might become convinced that all of your favorite comics are being run through the copy machine.

One comic who has found himself drawn into the clone rumor mill is the incredibly handsome Jamie Foxx. After his recent bout with illness, Foxx returned to social media to assure fans that he was on the road to recovery. But his hospitalization took a toll, leaving Foxx looking noticeably thinner. What other reasonable conclusion could the Internet come to other than Foxx must have passed away and been replaced with a malnourished clone?

Ice-T, for one, wasn’t having it. 

Foxx himself confirmed the news that he’s an actual human being. (It probably didn’t help the confusion that Foxx is starring in the new Netflix show, They Cloned Tyrone.)

And now comes news that fans believe Kevin Hart might also have multiple comic copies. The rumors stem from a 2019 car accident when Hart’s muscle car was totaled, leaving the comedian unable to walk on his own after back surgery. Then Hart gave conspiracy theorists all they needed when he gave a post-recovery interview to Men’s Health: “It’s a resurrection. That’s the best way for me to put it. I feel like the other version of myself died in that moment and this new version was born to understand and to do better.”

Proof! Hart admitted it himself! But just in case you need more evidence, he kept throwing logs into the clone fire. 

In a SportsCenter appearance, Hart told Stan Verrett that “I have a clone.” In fact, Hart says, he has three clones! “This is major news that I’m giving you, all right? I’m the first person to ever use it. I’m cloned.” Never mind that Hart was clearly giving a joke response to a question about how he manages to juggle stand-up comedy, movies, and running his wonderful-by-some-accounts vegan restaurant chain, Hart House. There’s too much smoke here for there not to be a clone fire. 

Oh, so now Dave Chappelle has a clone too? There’s no stopping the clown/clone trend, with all of our favorite funny people being replaced with simulations. On the off chance that all of this is true, can we please ensure Rob Schneider gets nowhere near this technology?
