Kevin Hart Continues to Be Very Sorry For His Homophobic Remarks

Kevin Hart Continues to Be Very Sorry For His Homophobic Remarks

In a post on Instagram, Hart said he got a call from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and was asked to apologize for his prior tweets or step down as host.

He told ABC that he was no longer willing to discuss the anti-gay comments he had made on Twitter in 2010 and 2011, which caused the uproar that led him to step down as host, saying his previous explanations and apology were sufficient.

"Once again, Kevin Hart apologizes for his remarks that hurt members of the LGBTQ community", Hart said.

"I'm over it. There's no more conversation about it ..."

'I'm over that, I'm over the moment, and I'm about today, so if it's accepted, great, if it's not, it's nothing I can control.

"If you didn't [hear the apology], I don't know what you're looking for", he continued. If you don't see that, then that means it's a problem with you.

He added: "You shouldn't have to prove that, you shouldn't have to justify that". Probably not! It's 2019, and the Academy needs to get it through their heads that in our society of fractured entertainment options, the Oscars are never going to recapture the ratings they once had.

"The reason why I've passed is that I've addressed it several times", he continued.

Hart, who is promoting his new film The Upside, said he it would be too late for him to prepare to host the ceremony, which takes place on February 24.

Last month, Hart made a decision to step down from his role hosting the ceremony after LGBT activists complained about anti-gay tweets he posted between 2009 to 2011, despite his profuse apologies.

Variety reports that for the first time in thirty years, the Oscars will be moving forward without a host.

Ellen DeGeneres, who was recently named the most admired LGBT+ person in the U.S., invited him on her show last week to convince him and the rest of America that he should fulfil his dream of hosting the Oscars.

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. "So anything, anything that I say that's not appropriate, that's wrong. you're gonna pick me apart".

Later, he appeared on Ellen where both he and she called for viewers to embrace growth and change. Instead, all of them will likely stand humiliated when the Nielsen numbers the following Monday reveal the show managed to outdo last year's record as being one of the lowest-rated Oscars ever.
