Hart posted about the incident on Monday morning, explaining he had been drunk when he tried to get on the stage. He used several hashtags in his post including, "#iShouldHaveListenedToMyWife," "#iWasCaughtUpInTheMoment," "#ImSoHappyForMyCity," "#AtLeastiDidntPunchaHoarse," and "#ThatSecurityGuardDidHisJob."
In the video he posted, Hart said, "When alcohol is in your system, you do dumb stuff. Me trying to go onstage with the trophy, definitely in the top two stupidest things I've ever done. But who cares? The Eagles won the Super Bowl!" He added that he was still tipsy as he recorded the video.
Hart, who was honored in his hometown with a mural last year, is a vocal supporter of Philadelphia sports teams.
