Ellen DeGeneres still wants Kevin Hart to host the Oscars

Ellen DeGeneres still wants Kevin Hart to host the Oscars

He went on, "I've taken 10 years to put that apology to work ..."

DeGeneres also took to Twitter to back the comedian.

"I know you are not that guy because I know you", she said. I've addressed it. I've spoken on it.

Nothing is official yet, but many trade publications like Variety are saying there *is* a chance Hart could become the Oscars host after all, even with the outcry. "I've addressed this several times".

In December, Hart said he was stepping down from hosting the Oscars and wanted to "sincerely apologize to the LGBT community for my insensitive words from my past". "I don't do that anymore". "I don't do that".

Kevin said that when the tweets resurfaced, he made a decision to ignore them because it's something he's apologized for already and he's no longer that guy. "What was once the brightest star, the brightest light ever, just got real dark". "You can't let them destroy you and they can't destroy you because you have too much talent". "That's my reason for doing it: I'm gonna bring fun to the Oscars". Now all of a sudden it's a little darker, because the conversation isn't about positives.

While Hart originally refused to again show remorse for the 2009 - 2011 tweets, he eventually sent out new tweets to offer atonement. "That's how I see it". Once again, I'm sorry if these words hurt. DeGeneres said that while she is sensitive to homophobia, she also accepts his apology. I've moved on. I'm a grown man. And you know what? There is no flawless bone in my body.

The two took part in an exhibition fight that was clouded in uncertainty as to whether or not it was ever going to really happen. The fight was the conclusion of a freaky buildup that featured Mayweather repeatedly claiming it was off and then back on again.

Hard said "I am not perfect", adding: "There is no ideal bone in my body, I have made mistakes and I have embraced them all because I am a better man today because of it".

DeGeneres called Hart "one of the smartest people I know", told him to avoid the "haters" (it always comes back to the haters), and noted that there's "a huge group of people who love you and want to see you host the Oscars". This is a conversation I needed to have. "So I don't know the flawless individual that society is now looking for - it's not me", Kevin told Ellen.

"So I mean, the Academy is saying, 'What can we do to make this happen?' " DeGeneres said, later adding that she believed Hart hosting the Oscars would infuse the award ceremony with "sophistication, class, hilarity, and you growing as a person".

"They were like, 'Oh my God, we want him to host".

What do you think of the heat Ellen DeGeneres is taking for her position on Kevin Hart? Hart was set to host the event until controversy arose due to tweets from his past that were deemed offensive.

"Hi Ellen, I think you're a cool lady. That being said, you have no authority to forgive him on behalf of a section of the community you don't belong to".
