Kevin Hart Issues Another Apology To LGBTQ Community

No. I'm not hosting the Oscars this year. In fact, following a recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which saw DeGeneres encouraging Hart to accept the chance to host, the criticism started anew, this time directed at both the comedian and DeGeneres, who was accused of allowing Hart's homophobic comments a pass. Hart said it's something he's already apologized for and didn't want to keep saying sorry.

'I can't do it this year, it's not going to happen, in the future if it does it does but it's not the conversation of today'.

"I'm not saying how I've changed anymore, I'm giving no more explanation of who I am, I've done it".

"I'm not taking anything away from actors", he added, "but I don't know that we need to be that celebratory, that's the biggest celebration on Earth, and it's just about people who are pretending and wearing makeup". "I'm a good person, I love to love, if you don't see that,'s a problem with you. You're not getting me". If you don't want to accept people for their change, then where are you trying to get to the equal part? I've done it. I've done it several times ...

It's a choice made significantly more hard by the reality that Hart is in the middle of a press tour for his latest film, The Upside, co-starring Bryan Cranston.

"If the fight from the LGBTQ community is equality, that's the fight".

Hart's "GMA" interview Wednesday capped off a roller coaster few weeks, which date back to when he was announced as the host for the Oscars on December 4. I'll be watching regardless, because unlike the Golden Globes (which are a joke voted on by only 90 global journalists), at least the Oscars paints a better picture of what the actual people working in Hollywood think about the year in movies.

Ellen DeGeneres, who was recently named the most admired LGBT+ person in the U.S., invited him on her show last week to convince him and the rest of America that he should fulfil his dream of hosting the Oscars.

"If you didn't [hear the apology], I don't know what you're looking for", Hart said. Following backlash and pressure from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Hart apologized to the LBGTQ community for his "insensitive words".

"The Academy had been considering welcoming Hart back if he had used the opportunity in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres to demonstrate contrition", reports Variety. You should host the Oscars.
