Kevin Hart reportedly apologizes for old tweets after Oscars backlash

Less surprising was the fact that the night's hosts, Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh, had a few jokes to crack about Kevin Hart and his short-lived tenure as Oscars 2019 host.

After causing mass hysteria for partially absolving Kevin Hart of his homophobia-laced humor, Ellen DeGeneres has found herself an ally. I've said where the rights and wrongs were. One can charitably see this as an admission that he has grown in his understanding of the plight of gay children in the black community, but that's not explicitly stated. "Because now we're in a space where I'm around people of the LGBTQ community, and I'm now aware of how these words make them feel, and why they say 'That s**t hurt because of what I've been through'". "If the fight from the LGBTQ community is equality, that's the fight", he said. Please grasp this and use it in 2019.

"Leaving here, I'm promising you I'm evaluating this conversation. I think they were secretly hoping that you would come back", she added.

Just two days after the announcing that Hart would be the host of the 91st Oscars ceremony next month, he stepped down. And I'm going to say it just in case you guys try to take this sh-t and chop it up, I will rebuttal with this f-ing piece right here.

"Kevin, if anything this is the time to hear other people out, to hear why they might have been offended, the openly gay anchor said".

In an Instagram post, the Get Hard star asked for the opportunity to learn from his comments and emphasized the importance of "growth" from past mistakes. Teachers are great teachers when they LEARN how to get thru to kids correctly.

It's also been pointed out that besides Lemon, several prominent journalists, including Buzzfeed News' David Mack, have criticized Hart's response to the controversy over his past homophobic remarks as well as his Ellen appearance.

Deadline.com reports, "Hart felt his hosting would become a distraction, a continuing controversial narrative that would take the spotlight off the people and movies being honored".

On his show Friday, Lemon carefully broke down why Hart's "apology" wasn't good enough for him. However, not having a host means the show would be flirting with disaster.
