Popular comedian and actor Kevin Hart gave a shoutout to crypto “voodoo” money at a recent charity event.
Hart hosted the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s telethon on October 24, providing a fundraiser for children living with muscular dystrophy.
During the live-streamed show, the prolific stand-up comedian was asked by actor Jay Ellis whether the charity accepted bitcoin, ethereum, or other crypto-assets for donations.
Hart responded by saying the fundraiser did not take “voodoo money.”
I don’t take voodoo money. We don’t take the voodoo. So if you’re out here trying to give us the voodoo, we don’t.
Hart paused for a moment to converse with his headpiece, before continuing,
What? We do take the voodoo? I’ve been told we do actually take cryptocurrency. I’ve been told it’s a legitimate investment. Yes, Jay, we take it.
Hart, who has previously been tied to crypto projects, was listed as a defendant last month in an amended complaint by the SEC against rapper T.I. and ICO token FLiK.
