MTV can be all about inclusion and understanding, but when it wants a cheap laugh, it's not about calling in the little people. Cue VMA host Kevin Hart, who entered the show escorted by a cadre of Secret Service types, all played by little people. True, the 5-foot-2 Hart was mostly poking fun at his own height, but when the coolest character on TV is played by a little person (Peter Dinklage), maybe it's time to rethink the easy jokes.
