Blame the mayor of Minneapolis, Jacob Frey, for Kevin Hart[1]’s shenanigans at the Super Bowl.

Before Hart, a rabid Eagles fan, was caught on national TV trying to crash the trophy ceremony and then dropping an F-bomb, the actor and his entourage attended a pregame brunch organized by nightlife impresario Barry Mullineaux, during which Frey presented Hart with a key to the city.

Since the event was sponsored by Tequila Revolución, Frey, 36, and Hart, 38, decided to pound a few shots for good luck. The rest, as they say, is history. Also at the brunch were newly inducted NFL Hall of Famers Ray Lewis and Randy Moss.

Hart’s ex-wife, Torrei, defended the funny man[2]. “Was he driving? No. Was he at the Super Bowl celebrating a victory? Yes,” she told Page Six. “It’s the Eagles. That’s our city. We’re both from Philadelphia, so let the man live. He works hard.”
