Ellen ‘forgives’ defiant Kevin Hart’s homophobia & says he should host the Oscars

"Somehow I'll get to the stage but it's not going to be in this way because it just comes with such a weird cloud at this point".

The Academy asked Hart to apologize but Hart declined, saying he'd already done so numerous times, and stepped down from hosting the Oscars.

Despite everything - possible previous apologies, headlines he thinks are misleading and the thought that comedians are "risk-takers" - Hart did tell the magazine that he's "sorry" for the tweets themselves.

The entertainment director added: "Hart is one of the most recognizable Black faces in pop culture and that's why he should especially seek forgiveness from Black queer folks in addition to his broader appeals, something DeGeneres can't grant". Moreover, Hart's indignant response felt as though maybe he wasn't actually remorseful, or that he didn't think it was that big of a deal. DeGeneres said that while she is sensitive to homophobia, she also accepts his apology.

He announced last month he was stepping down from the position and issued an apology to the LGBTQ community for his "insensitive words" from the past. I know where our relationship stands.

The insider added: "A lot of people at the Academy scratching their heads because he did what they wanted him to do so really he didn't need to quit in that case. Whatever we can do, we want him to host". Once again, I'm sorry these words hurt.

DeGeneres' insistence that it is Hart's "right" to host the Oscars was so offensive that many detractors registered their disdain on social media.

In the interview, which aired overnight, the talk show host revealed that she had spoken to Hart about his controversy soon after it all blew up, and she told him that she had contacted Oscars top brass to try and get him reinstated as host.

But if that doesn't work out, may we suggest Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as hosts? "There are so many haters out there".

"I have no problem with her interviewing him provided it is a real interview", someone wrote. I've yet to go back to that version of the immature version of the comedian that once was.

"This whole ellen/kevin hart thing is a ideal example of how privilege and constant praise distorts a person's reality so much that they perceive any criticism, however valid, to be an attack on their entire livelihood", added another. "If he was asked back as host it would be because he has now done so". "I've done it. I'm not going to continue to go back and tap into the days of old when I've moved on, and I'm in a completely different space in my life". "That's why they haven't found another host".
