The actor continued, 'We can bet whatever....Sh*t just got real.'

'I am also no longer doing comedy due to my Olympic training schedule....IM BACK BI***ES!!!!!!'

'P.S this is Disrespectful on so many levels....All you can do is laugh. Maybe the Covid 19 shrunk his legs & torso'

The apology

It wasn't long before NBC News reached out to apologise for the error.

They tweeted, 'Very sorry about that @KevinHart4real – bad technical glitch in how photos show up on Facebook.'

At the bottom of the article itself, they included a correction note:

'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.'

Kevin hasn't made any further comment.
