Comedian Kevin Hart has come to the defense of the falling star of celebrity chef Paula Deen.

Hart said he was upset at first when hearing that Deen used racial slurs in the past.

But as Deen continues to lose endorsements and ties with major companies, Hart thinks the backlash has been too harsh.

"The hammer that was dropped down on Paula Deen was like the hammer of all hammers," Hart said in an interview on Yahoo!.

"I think that she should be punished but you're killing her right now," he added.
