The internet decided the moment should live in infamy and many Twitter users shared the exchange and added their own takes.

Prior to the launch of his talk show, Hart said Hart to Heart would feature no prep, just real dialogue between real people but it seems Hart could have done with a bit of prep when he accidentally offended Cheadle.

Cheadle was discussing his dreams of becoming a jazz musician, his private life and the future when he casually mentioned his age. After revealing to Hart that he was 56 years old, Hart exclaimed, "Damn," which was then followed by an awkward silence and a hard stare from Cheadle.

"I'm sorry," Hart quickly said. "I'm sorry. It was a thought and I blurted it out. I did not mean it that way."

Cheadle told Hart it's fine and he's fine but the tension in the studio could be cut with a knife. They went on to discuss the tone of Hart's "damn" and whether or not it was complimentary or not.

The tone of the interview may have appeared to have dropped dramatically in this moment but in the wider context of the whole interview, the two remain close friends. Sharing a preview clip of their interview on his Instagram, Hart wrote that in the show he and Don Cheadle can be seen doing what they do best "and that's being assholes to one another" followed by four laughing emojis.
