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

Kevin Hart says he won't be hosting the Academy Awards.

Earlier this week on his Sirius XM show "Straight from the Hart" program, he again apologized to the LGBTQ community.

Was Stormy Daniels' prime-time address on Tuesday more informative than President Trump's?

Hart was then asked if he was surprised that DeGeneres had received some backlash for her decision to defend and support him on her show.

"You may not like the way he said it, but he said it there". By Friday afternoon, Hart had told Variety that it wasn't going to happen.

"I'm over it", Hart said multiple times when asked about his apology or the controversy.

Speaking with Strahan Wednesday about potentially hosting the Oscars in the future, Hart said, "if it does [happen], it does, but it's not the conversation of today". That's a fear. Keep in mind, I'm not homophobic. "I know that within my apologies I've taken 10 years to put my apology to work".

But he's made it crystal clear this time that he is OVER IT, he will NOT be talking about it, and wants everyone else to let it go too. "But I don't believe in going backward". In another, he said if his son were to play with a doll's house, he would break it over the boy's head and tell him to stop being gay.

This will be the first time the event hasn't had a single host.

Hart backed out of the hosting gig after people discovered years-old tweets where the comedian and actor made homophobic comments.

The program also included Lemon saying Hart is not a victim in this situation, but he had words for the LGBT community as well.

"I really had to dive into the whole thing, even the tweets", said Hart. I know that I've apologised. Hart stepped down as Oscars host after the posts were brought to light. "I apologize", he said on his show.

"We thought it was okay to talk like that [in the past], because that's how we talked to one another".

"The Academy had been considering welcoming Hart back if he had used the opportunity in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres to demonstrate contrition", reports Variety. "You're not getting me". "There isn't. The Academy are wonderful people".

Ultimately he called on his critics to be more accepting that people can change.

"The fight is the will and want for equality". The fight is the will and want for equality. I'm riding with you guys.
