Ellen DeGeneres wants Kevin Hart to host Oscars despite homophobic comments

The magazine has also called hosting the Oscars "the least wanted job in Hollywood".

In December, Hart withdrew from hosting the Academy Awards after outrage ensued over past homophobic jokes and tweets. "And I believe in @KevinHart4real".

In a third segment with Hart - in which he still hasn't talked about LGBTQ young people who have been rejected, abused, and killed by their parents - he said that he would consider doing the Oscars.

After letting the press circulation sit for a while, Hart brought up that he has indeed addressed and apologized for his past tweets and not that he's older and wiser - he knows better.

Adding that she's never one to buy into "mob mentalities" herself, McCain said that, for her, "Kevin Hart's apology hasn't really come up to snuff yet". "Trust me when I tell you that you won't want to miss tomorrows episode", he wrote. "We feel like maybe he misunderstood or it was handled wrong or maybe we said the wrong thing, but we want him to host.' The Academy is saying, what can we do to make this happen?" Whatever we can do. Whatever's going on on the internet, don't pay attention t them.

He also says that now that DeGeneres has backed him, he's "evaluating" taking up the job again.

She then told him that she had spoken to the Academy and wants Hart to take back the gig, starting the hashtag #OscarsNeedHart.

He continued, saying he was put off by the demand to apologize because he felt he had previously apologized for the tweets numerous times and contended that he did not have a "homophobic bone in his body". I remember the span in 2011 when this came up, and I had to say to a person in the LGBTQ community, 'Hey, I understand.

Kevin Hart will be stopping by "The Ellen DeGeneres Show", according to reports and it won't be a typical visit.

"It was an attack".

"When I go on that stage, it will be because I've somehow figured out a way to win the Oscar", Hart said.

Hart described having to address the tweets at press events over the years, including as recently as 2015 while promoting the film Get Hard with Will Ferrell. "No, it's done. It's done", Hart said.

A Guardian article published shortly after Hart's announcement went beyond his Twitter account, pointing to a 2010 comedy special in which Hart does a bit about how his "biggest fear" is his son growing up to be gay. I have nothing against gay people. Be happy. Do what you want to do.

He added: "Either my apology is accepted or it isn't". I'm glad that I had it here. "I don't think she is usually known as a tough interviewer, but maybe she will be this time". These things become public spectacles. "We are a huge group of people who love you and want to see you how the Oscars".

During the interview, however, Hart seemed to warm up a little to the idea of returning.
