Kevin Hart Continues Apology Tour For Past Homophobic Remarks On SirusXM Show

  • HDon Lemon right urged Kevin Hart left to be more of an ally to the LGBTQ community

He continued: "I have explained how I've evolved, which makes me say, 'I'm over it.' I'm not saying how I've changed any more. I apologize", Hart, speaking in third person, began. I'm over that, I'm over the moment, and I'm about today. He said he could not rule out hosting in future years. The Academy, they're awesome people, the offer was made, it was received, I was excited, things happened, it didn't work out the way that it should've. We thought it was okay to talk like that, because that's how we talked to one another. "You're not getting me". "And then I say as a heterosexual male, if I can do something to stop my son... that's where the joke starts!" Whether I like it or not, whether you like it or not, that is his right.

Hart went on to equate the response he had received to his first apology as a form of "bullying", adding that "it turns into, you're bullying them because now, now that I said what I said the way that I would say it because I'm me, you're now trying to change me into becoming what version of me you want me to be".

Now he's asking that people "erase" those past comments and said that LGBTQ people have to "accept people for their change".

The comedian's latest apology was an overture to a lengthy segment on the show where he dissected the entire controversy - including the homophobic jokes that first sparked the outrage. "Where does the equality part come in?"

Last month, Hart chose 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. You should host the Oscars. "I've said who I am now versus who I was then".

On Friday, Jan. 4, he went on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" to address the tweets further and also discuss dropping out of hosting the Oscars due to the controversy.

DeGeneres revealed that she had called The Academy and asked them to bring Hart back as host. She says its reps instantly replied that they still wanted the funnyman to be the night's MC. "You can't let them destroy you and they can't destroy you because you have too much talent". "We don't post this s**t on social media'".

Hart later came to her defense, saying: 'When did we get to the point where we forgot that we all learn, then we all have the ability to grow and with that growth comes a wealth of knowledge.

"I feel like if you're not homophobic anymore, you shouldn't mind apologizing for your past homophobia again", one Twitter user wrote.
