Kevin Hart is dishing on his Oscar Hosting Controversy with Ellen DeGeneres

Kevin Hart ‘evaluating’ returning to host the Oscars after Ellen De Generes sit-down

In an hour-long appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing today, Kevin Hart revealed that he's "evaluating" his decision not to host the Oscars after DeGeneres called the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, asking them to reconsider their position.

"Would I ever do it?" "I'm now taking away from those moments because the night is focused on something else now".

"The next morning, after a day full of congratulations and celebrations, I'm hit with an onslaught on social media of my past coming back up again".

"I believe in forgiveness".

He also labeled the process of looking through his roughly 40,000 old tweets an attempt to "damage" him - "a malicious attack on my character".

DeGeneres, who is openly gay and hosted the Oscars in 2007 and 2014, said the Academy, which organizes the ceremony, had responded that they would be "thrilled" to have him host the February 24 awards.

"You have put a lot of things on my mind". I was called fag by people I loved before I even understood what being gay meant.

She wrote in another post: "In this conversation, @KevinHart4real was authentic and real, and I'm in his corner. I am evolving and want to continue to do so".

Hart's non-apology tour could be a signal that the Academy is planning on offering the hosting gig to him again. However, a number of comedians came to the defense of Hart at the time and now Ellen DeGeneres is as well. "The manipulation of headlines is what was unbelievable when this whole thing hit". "You have apologised. You're apologising again right now". This is stuff I've addressed.

With less than two months before the ceremony, the most prestigious awards in the movie business, the Academy has not announced a replacement. Fans, however, haven't been able to locate an apology. I had to address it when I did Get Hard promo with Will Ferrell because of that joke I had about my son.

He chose to step aside as host rather than apologise, later saying "I have made several mistakes, and I embrace them all". You don't know what perfection is unless you've experienced imperfection.

"On my side, openly I say I'm wrong for my past words". I can't do nothing about the tweets because they're out there. I thought it was an fantastic thing. Not "I'm sorry people are so sensitive". "I have no idea if he wants to come back and host but what are your thoughts?'" DeGeneres said. Louis C.K. recently took heat online for mocking Parkland shooting survivors and others in a leaked comedy set. Moreover, Hart's indignant response felt as though maybe he wasn't actually remorseful, or that he didn't think it was that big of a deal.

DeGeneres also took to Twitter to back the comedian. "I've said who I am now versus who I was then". "I'm just now getting there ..." I'm gonna ignore it because it's 10 years old. "No, it's done. It's done", Hart told Variety.

"I stepped down because I'm not going to allow this to tarnish an unbelievable night for the other actors and actresses that are going to be on stage that night", Hart admitted.

Kevin Hart seemed like a sure thing - until he wasn't, after past homophobic tweets resurfaced and he didn't apologize.
