Kevin Hart roasted Florida State University quarterback Jameis Winstone when he stopped by the university for his college comedy tour.

Kevin Hart ROASTS Jameis Winston

“You need to stop doing dumb s–t,” Hart told Winston, who won the 2013 Heisman Trophy. Hart added, “I started to bring a bunch a crab legs to see if you was gonna take ’em!”

Hart’s crab legs quip was in reference to Winston’s alleged shoplifting of $32.72 worth of crab legs from a Tallahassee, Fla., Public grocery store back in April. He apparently ordered the seafood and then walked out with it without paying. When police approached Winston at his home later that night, the star athlete claimed he’d forgotten to pay.

The following day, Winston made a statement, digging his heels in to his narrative that paying for the crab legs had merely slipped his mind.

“I went to the supermarket with the intent to purchase dinner but made a terrible mistake for which I’m taking full responsibility,” Winston said in his statement. “In a moment of youthful ignorance, I walked out of the store without paying for one of my items.”

“I realize that I am in the public spotlight and my conduct needs to be above reproach,” he continued. “Over the last year I’ve learned that my accomplishments on the fields can be a wonderful thing for my school, teammates, friends, and family. At the same time, I must realize that my mistakes are magnified and can bring great embarrassment to all those who support me every day.”


The most serious incident for Winston, who has often found himself in trouble during his college career, was in December of 2012 when a fellow FSU student accused him of rape. He ended up avoiding prosecution, but will have a hearing later this year that will determine whether or not he violated the university’s code of conduct.

Winston’s hearing will be held Dec. 2.
