‘I’m over it’: Kevin Hart rules out hosting the Oscars

Kevin Hart Apologizes Again for Past Gay Jokes

"Once again, Kevin Hart apologizes for his remarks that hurt members of the LGBTQ community", the Night School star said in the third person. "I don't want people to think there's a thing about me and the Academy".

If you thought Kevin Hart's interview on Ellen was the final stop of the Kevin Hart Apology Tour, the comedian has added a few more dates. "It's a choice that I personally made to say, 'I'm not addressing it anymore.' That's not from an angry place".

In others, he used the words "fag" and "gay" pejoratively, referring to actor Dwayne L. Brown as a "fat fag" and actor Damien Wayans as "a gay bill board for AIDS".

"You're talking about two weeks that I would really have to prepare", he said. "I don't have a homophobic bone in my body". 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*cking piece right here.

He went on to explain why he sent those tweets, which have since been deleted.

Chrystia Freeland criticizes Russian Federation in espionage case resulting in detention of Canadian
He has been visiting Russian Federation for business and pleasure for more than a decade, his brother said. Interfax said he added that "there is no connection" with the case and any Russian citizen in the US.

But CNN's Don Lemon offered an emotional and thoughtful rebuttal to Hart's indifferent and indignant reaction, calling the plight of gay and black children a matter of "life and death", asking Hart to become an ally to a group of young Americans who live in danger due to cultural homophobia and backlash.

Thoughts, Perezcious readers? Are we collectively letting go of this controversy, or does Kevin need to prove he's honest in his apology just a bit more? "This is wrong now". "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- hurt because of what I've been through'". The Academy eventually declared they would welcome him back with open arms. And if that's received, then great, then it means we've achieved something. "'Hey, let's not do this". I shouldn't have to prove who I am.what more do you want from me? If you don't want to accept people for their change, then where are you trying to get to the equal part? "Where does the equality part come in?"

Which leads us to a 10-plus minute segment in which an obstinate Kevin Hart stonewalls Strahan's tireless effort to find any contrition or charm in the potential Oscar host. He issued an apology after that. Ellen referred to critics of his homophobic statements as "haters" and told him to ignore them.

Hart, a previous Oscars presenter, stepped down as host of the show on December 6, days after the academy selected him following a prolonged search and declining ratings for the annual broadcast.
