People think Kevin Hart's reaction during interview confirms the Illuminati exists

People think Kevin Hart's reaction during interview confirms the Illuminati exists

The comedian could be seen 'shushing' Kelly Clarkson during a recent episode of her talk show

Kevin Hart has some fans convinced that he is a part of the Illuminati after footage emerged of him seemingly attempting to silence Kelly Clarkson in a newly unearthed clip that was posted on Twitter.

Appearing on Clarkson's talk show, The Kelly Clarkson Show, the comedian and actor could been seen making a 'shush' gesture with his finger when Clarkson described being offered money to do something she 'really didn't want to do'.

Take a look below:

In the interview between Clarkson and Hart, the former singer opened up about financial 'offers' she'd had from within the entertainment industry to do certain things - which provoked a curious reaction from her interviewee.

After telling Clarkson to 'shush' with his finger, she then inferred that people who have offered him money to do similar things "must be in the room" (where its being filmed).

"That was my way of queuing you" Hart states, adding; "its open dialogue, we can talk about anything but [not that]", before repeating the shush gesture again.

While the context of the conversation is missing from the clip, which might have revealed how tongue-in-cheek Hart was being, some social media users had seen enough already.

"Watched a video where @kellyclarkson and @KevinHart4real were talking and Kevin stopped her from talking because of the Illuminati," one person wrote on Twitter.

"Kevin was shusshing her, Kevin hart your saying someone or group has that much power over actors & singers??? Really??" they added.

"Is it the NWO [New World Order]" another person commented, to which a third user replied: "They were just joking about how silly they think conspiracy theories are."

It's not yet known whether the pair were joking or not, although Clarkson's laughter in the clip would seem to imply that it's not too be taken too seriously.

Kevin Hart appeared to 'shush' Clarkson at one point of the interview.

While this response could be interpreted in many different ways, some Twitter users have concluded - whether jokingly or otherwise - that Hart's action must be related to his involvement in the Illuminati.

As Adam Curtis details in his BBC documentary Can't Get You Out of My Head, the Illuminati conspiracy first began back in the 1960s, with some speculating that the world's elite were all members of the group - and that they used their collective influence and power to run the world.

While no such evidence of this conspiracy has ever been found, the name seems to derive from the 'Bavarian Illuminati' group, which was an enlightenment-era secret society founded in modern day Germany.

The Illuminati conspiracy gained real traction in the 2000s, with several music videos being called out online for supposedly having 'subliminal messages' in them.

Videos from the likes of Beyonce and Rihanna, where triangles were especially prevalent, were used as evidence that they were in the Illuminati - and were using the coded messages to communicate this fact to others in the know.

However, in more recent years, the Illuminati conspiracy has become something of a meme, with YouTube stars like KSI openly mocking theorists who had previously tied him to the clandestine group.
