Kevin Hart is rethinking hosting the Oscars after talk with Ellen DeGeneres

Kevin Hart Ellen De Generes Show

But DeGeneres urged him to host the show during an interview that aired Friday on her talk show. In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Hart said he has grown as a comedian. However, the dream soon came crashing down. "You've already expressed that it's not being educated on the subject, not realizing how risky those words are, not realizing how many kids are killed for being gay or beaten up every day", said DeGeneres. This is stuff I've addressed; I've talked about this stuff. "This isn't new. I've addressed it".

Hart also took the opportunity to apologize again for his previous statements, saying, "I stepped down because I'm not going to allow this to tarnish an awesome night for the other actors and actresses that are going to be on stage that night".

In the aftermath of the conversation, in which Hart revisited tweets posted on his account in the past and stressed his repeated attempts to apologise for them, Hart said that he was "evaluating" his decision to step down as host. Who knows? I certainly don't claim to have the answer.

Popovich hopes Leonard shown 'respect' on return
DeRozan is averaging just over 23 points a night, but lately has been stealing Lowry's game plan and bumping his assist totals. As Leonard heard it from the crowd, DeRozan was filling up the box score to the tune of 21 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists.

"For me to take the moment of hosting the Oscars into an apology tour - because that's what it would become - that didn't make sense to me", he shared.

But Nick Levine, a United Kingdom journalist who writes about pop culture and LGBTQ issues, told the BBC: "Like Ellen DeGeneres, I believe in forgiveness and second chances, but I also believe those things need to be earned. Your past is your past for a reason", Hart continued. "I don't want to step on that stage and make that night about me and my past". "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". And you know what? I know that I've apologized.

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 instagrammed a picture of himself in conversation with Ellen and said that he "stopped by" Ellen's show for a promo of his upcoming film The Upside but he "ended up staying on for the entire hour" during which they discussed the "Oscar controversy in depth". Many are unhappy that she chose to characterize those who brought up concerns at Hart's hiring as simply "haters", letting him off the hook for true self-reflection. "The night will be about you, and it should be about you, and you should host the Oscars". "That's an attack, that's a malicious attack on my character, that's an attack to end me, that's not an attack to just stop the Oscars". "It's bigger than just the Oscars". "Yeah, because that's why we do things 16 years in", the show's executive producer Andy Lassner scoffed.
