Kevin Hart apologizes via Instagram for drunken Super Bowl hysterics
Hart attended the Super Bowl Sunday night and as a native Philadelphian, he was predictably pumped to see the team play in the game.
Throughout the game, Hart danced it up with fellow comedian and Philadelphian Spank Horton in the bleachers.
Turns out. Kevin Hart was wilding out the whole time!

And at the end of the night, after his team won, a very drunk Hart headed down to the field to tell everyone about how excited he was. One of his stops included the NFL Network—where he dropped the F-word in the midst of an impassioned speech about the Eagles.
“Philadelphia is a great city and I thought, ‘I hope this is an example of what we can do,’” he said. “We gave a fuck… oops.”

The highlight of the night, however, was when Hart attempted to join the Eagles onstage as they approached the podium.
As the Vince Lombardi trophy was carried out, viewers could catch a glimpse of Hart arguing with security personnel about getting onstage. Thanks to YouTube user David Engel, fans can rewatch the moment over and over again.
Fans of Hart on Twitter thought his behavior Sunday night was hilarious.
Thank you @KevinHart4real for making this morning so damn hilarious …

On Monday morning a hungover Hart posted a video on Instagram and addressed the public reaction to his actions.
“To all the kids out there, I just wanna say don’t drink,” he said. “When alcohol is in your system, you do dumb stuff. Me trying to go onstage with the trophy is definitely in the top two stupid mistakes I’ve ever made, but who cares? The Eagles won the Super Bowl.”

Eagles fans are notorious for going wild and rioting in the streets of Philadelphia, regardless of the outcome of the game. In fact, after the game ended Sunday night, fans were documented climbing street signs, flipping over cars, setting things on fire, and climbing atop various building enclosures. As Hart wreaked havoc on the field in Minneapolis, he was just doing what any good Eagles fan would do.
