Ellen DeGeneres Wants Kevin Hart to Host the Oscars Still

Share

After their interview aired, many fans took to Twitter to disavow Hart - and also DeGeneres, for saying that those who criticized Hart's refusal to apologize for past homophobia were just "haters".

In a tweet announcing his decision to walk away from the job, Hart said: " I do not want to be a distraction on a night that should be celebrated by so many incredible talented artists. Let me assess, just to sit in the space and really think.

Hart said he felt under attack and did not want to be the center of attention at the ceremony. "This is stuff I've addressed and apologized for already", Kevin shares. Is that how it works now in Hollywood - you have a career in comedy, where you sometimes offend people, and you have a "right" to host the industry's most prominent awards show? "Because that was wrong".

DeGeneres, who is openly gay, tweeted a clip from the interview in which Hart again apologised for the tweets, but said he did not want the Academy Awards to be about him. "So, to get the moment, celebrate the moment, oh my god I can't believe it's happening, and then the next morning, after a day of congratulations and celebrations, I'm hit with an onslaught on social media of my past coming back up again".

For defending Kevin Hart and believing in giving him a second chance, DeGeneres was quickly attacked. "So I'm on board, let's let Kevin Hart host the Oscars".

People Magazine reports the Academy is considering asking Hart back following the controversy. This is a conversation I needed to have, I'm glad that I had it here, and I'm glad that it was as authentic and real as I could have hoped that it would be. "The black community has been so targeted by bias and racism and prejudice for so long, you would think he would be an ally to the LGBTQ community".

"What we're going to get to see on stage with you hosting the Oscars is sophistication, class, hilarity and you growing as a person", Ellen told Hart on Friday's show. I'm sorry. But either my apology is accepted or it isn't.

As of now the spot for Oscars 2019 host is vacant as the Academy hasn't been able to hire someone for the job.
