Leslie Jones was quick to shut Kevin Hart down for using her name in an attempt to discredit Katt Williams as a mentor on Friday, September 21. Hart brought up Jones in his latest interview with The Breakfast Club about female comedians that Williams personally worked with. "Shoutouts to Melanie Comarcho, shoutouts to Luenell, shoutouts to Leslie Jones, who are all underneath the umbrella of Katt Williams". The Saturday Night Live star chose to slam both Kevin Hart and Katt Williams have subtly credited themselves for her and other black female comedians success.

He added: "Katt Williams, have you ever used your platform to f***ing bring the people that were under you up?"

But in a statement published by Bossip, the SNL star insisted that Katt did not "put her on".

"Real talk, both of them ni**as need to keep my name out they mouth unless they using it to eat my p***y", Jones reportedly said. "None of those ni**as put me on or any woman", Bossip quotes her as saying.

After Kevin accused Katt of never helping anyone underneath him, Leslie clapped back at Hart, by accusing him of never putting any female comedians on his tour.

She then shared that Katt displayed a [expletive] attitude to the women, though she relents that, at least, he has had women open for his on his tours.

Jones said it was legendary comedian Chris Rock and white comedian Neal Brennan who gave her a shot.

She concluded by telling both Kevin and Katt to stick to doing what they do best...telling jokes.

"Women have never had it good", she explained. While sitting beside Haddish for his interview with Power 105.1, this week, Hart launched into a rant during which he called Katt out for tearing down Haddish as a Black woman on V-103's Frank and Wanda radio show.

He told the Press Association: "I think you're looking at a different time, where diversity is welcome".
