Ellen DeGeneres Is Trying to Get Kevin Hart Reinstated as Oscars Host

From Ellen's description of her conversation with the Academy, it sounds like the job is Hart's if he wants it, and from what Hart had to say there seems to be a decent chance he is going to return as host, at the very least he is thinking about it. "I think the night will be about you, and it should be about you, and you should host the Oscars, and I'm going to talk you into it". The Hollywood Reporter said DeGeneres faced "backlash", citing several tweets from Twitter users pelting DeGeneres with insults for giving Hart a pass.

He also said sorry on Twitter, writing: "I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past".

DeRay McKesson, the civil rights activist and Black Lives Matter supporter, tweeted: "I expected Ellen to actually ask Kevin Hart some sort of challenging question".

A major issue here, obviously, was that many people were unaware of Hart's past jokes, and so an apology would have gone a long way. "Because that was wrong". "I called the Academy today, because I really want you to host the Oscars".

DeGeneress told Hart he should take the job, to prevent his critics from winning. Telling Hart she called the Academy herself, DeGeneres encouraged Hart to focus on what matters - his multiple apologies and his growth - rather than critical voices online.

Kevin Hart might still have some friends in charge of organizing the Academy Awards, as sources say there are some who would still be open to him hosting the 2019 awards ceremony. Not everyone heard, read, or was aware of Hart's past apology, so for many these old tweets and jokes were brand new.

"As a gay person", she added, "I am as sensitive to all of that".

LGBTQ watchdog organisation GLAAD reiterated its position that Hart not step down as host but instead use the platform to "send an unequivocal message of acceptance to LGBTQ youth". It was, "Kevin Hart steps down because he refuses to apologize for homophobic tweets.' This was what was said and it was blasted all over the internet, and the word 'again" somehow got lost, which was a major word. "I don't want to step on that stage and make that night about me and my past".

After people were upset that the comedian suspiciously sounded like Mike Pence, the Academy gave him an ultimatum: Apologize or quit. I've yet to go back to that version of the immature comedian I once was. "Either I can move forward, or I can't".

But DeGeneres said they will win if he doesn't host the Oscars. "So, as a member of the 'mob, ' I guess, I still say what I said before: Find another host this year". The tweets suggested Hart would be physically abusive towards his son if he were ever to come out as gay.

He maintained that tone Thursday when Ellen DeGeneres informed him that she'd been working behind the scenes to get him onstage as host. "I'm not that guy", he said, explaining why he stepped down from his Oscars hosting gig.
