Kevin Hart has recently given his fans a quite shocking update by revealing that he is in a wheelchair after attempting to race NFL running back Stevan Ridley. The Jumanji star took to Instagram to share the news, stating, “Guys, I blew all my s—t.” 

What did Kevin Hart say about his latest injury?

In the video he posted on his Instagram account, Hart, 44, rolled into the wheelchair in front of the camera and blamed being older than 40 for his situation. “Tore my lower abdomen, my abductors are torn,” he revealed. “I don’t even know what that is, but I tore ’em. … I can’t walk!” The actor then claimed that his injuries were caused by a “debate” over “who is faster” with the 34-year-old retired New England Patriots player. “I tried to jump out there and do some young stuff … and I was told to sit my ass down,” he continued

Apparently, Hart challenged Ridley to a 40-yard dash, but the race ended up in defeat for the Me Time star. He ended his message with a PSA urging older fans to “respect their age” and to refrain from being “alarmed” if they saw him moving around in a wheelchair. “What are we competing for at this age? What am I doing?” the comedian added. “Why did I even race? Stupidest s—t ever! Now I can’t walk…”

“Ladies and gentlemen, the age 40 is real. Respect that age or that age will make you respect it. I was just forced to respect it. Sit my ass down. This is 44.”
