Kevin Hart considering return as Oscars host after Ellen DeGeneres steps in

04 Janvier, 2019, 17:36 | Auteur: Christine Menetries

Ellen DeGeneres wants Kevin Hart to host the Oscars, despite homophobic comments the comedy star made several years ago. "It's depressing that Ellen's enthusiasm for Hart hosting the Oscars ... led her to contribute to a narrative that Hart is the victim of "haters" & "trolls" out to "destroy" him", said Adam Vary, a journalist for BuzzFeed and one of the Twitter users who highlighted Hart's homophobia when it was first announced he would be hosting the Oscars.

While speaking to DeGeneres on Friday's episode of her eponymous talk show, Hart discussed his thought process in apologizing for the tweets and stepping down as host.

"I had an incredible and honest conversation with [Kevin Hart] about hosting the #Oscars".

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. This is a conversation I needed to have, I'm glad that I had it here, and I'm glad that it was as authentic and real as I could have hoped that it would be.

"There is no ideal bone in my body". I knew how important it was and how it was a dream. I know that I've apologized.

He went on, "I've taken 10 years to put that apology to work ..." Maybe we said the wrong thing but we want him to host. I've yet to go back to that version of the immature comedian that I once was. "I've done it. I'm not going to continue to go back and tap into the days of old when I've moved on, and I'm in a completely different space in my life".

"That's why they [The Academy] haven't found another host".

Hart spoke out about the jokes since he told them, telling Rolling Stone in 2015 that it spoke of his "own insecurities" and that he "wouldn't tell that joke today, because when I said it, the times weren't as sensitive as they are now".

"They were like, "Oh my God, we want him to host!" "We feel like that maybe he misunderstood or it was handled wrong. You've done it. Don't let those people win - host the Oscars". "Whatever we can do, we would be thrilled, '" she said.

The Oscars ceremony, which is now without a host, will take place February 25.

DeGeneres, who came out as gay in 1997, defended Hart by saying, "As a gay person..." I said, 'Kevin's on.

Agreeing that he has "grown" and changed and fully "apologized", Ellen said, "Don't let those people win".

While she said she is very "sensitive" to homophobic language as a gay person, she stressed that Hart has "already expressed that it's not being educated on the subject, not realizing how unsafe those words are, not realizing how many kids are killed for being gay or beaten up every day".
