For his part, Don appeared to suggest on social media that it was all old news—or, uh, let’s just call it water under the bridge. After a fan asked what “went through your mind” in the moment, the Space Jam: A New Legacy actor replied, “that @KevinHart4real and i need to do a movie together asap! i think this is my favorite interview ever. ‘damn!'” Don also added a number of laughing-with-tears emojis.
