On Wednesday, August 23, the 44-year-old spoke to fans via a video uploaded to his Instagram account to inform them he was unable to walk after participating in a race against former NFL star Stevan Ridley, 34.
"44 and sitting my a-- down!!!!! I got to be the dumbest man alive!!!!! What the f--- am I doing???? I blew my s---….I’m done. FML," Hart captioned the clip describing his recent chain of unfortunate events that led to his serious injuries.
In the video, Hart incorporated his renowned sense of humor, as he explained: "I'm in a wheelchair. Why? Well, because I tried to jump out there and do some young stuff."
"This debate was based off who's faster. Those that know me know, I'm pretty fast. Stevan said, 'Kevin, ain't no way you're gonna beat me.' Stevan is an ex-NFL running back [who] played for the New England Patriots. Very good guy," the Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle star recalled regarding how he ended up in a 40-yard dash.
The aftermath of the race quickly made Hart regret his decision to agree to a friendly competition, as it resulted in him injuring "all [his] s---."

"To all my men and women out there that are 40 years old and above. It's not a game, respect that age," the comedian hilariously confessed. "Respect that age, or that age will make you respect it. I was just forced to respect it. This is just a public service announcement because I know people may see me out. And I don't want you to be alarmed, but I'm in a wheelchair."
Hart detailed his injured — including a torn lower abdomen and tears in his hip abductors, which prompted him to joke: "I don't know what that is but I tore them, I tore those, too. I can't walk."
"What are we competing for at this age? What am I doing? Why did I even race? Stupidest s--- ever, now I can't walk," the legendary comedian concluded, seemingly in disbelief by the reality of his situation.
