Kevin Hart on Sunday (August 27, 2017) took to Instagram and issued the Hurricane Harvey Challenge. It’s a challenge and call to action to all celebrities to help with the Harvey Relief efforts underway in Houston. He called out The Rock, Chris Rock, Jay Z, Dave Chapelle, Beyonce, Dave Chappelle, Jerry Seinfeld, Steve Harvey and Justin Timberlake.
