Kevin Hart blasts NBC News for using his photo in story about Usain Bolt Testing Positive to COVID-19

With NBC’s misrepresentation of Kevin Hart  in a story about eight-time Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt testing positive for coronavirus — but the comedian called the mistake “disrespectful on so many levels’’, the media house has tendered an apology in that regard.

Apparently, the 5-foot-4 inch comedian doesn’t exactly resemble the 6-foot-5 inch sprinter, but NBC News chalked the gaffe up to a technical issue and quickly corrected the story.

“A previous version of this article included an incorrect photo on some platforms due to a technical problem. The photo depicted actor Kevin Hart. It has been replaced with a photo of Usain Bolt,” the article now explains.

NBC News further articulated the technical problem on Facebook.

“In the content management system, a social image was not selected, and the system reverted to an image of Hart from an unrelated video. The display image has been corrected,” NBC News wrote on its official Facebook page.
