Kevin Hart May Return as Oscars Host Thanks to Ellen Degeneres

In a Variety piece that was published the same time as the Ellen interview, Hart said that he would not consider going back to host the Oscars as it would be a step backwards.
She said that a teaching moment requires Hart "to come out and say 'I was wrong, that is ignorance -- we have people who are killing themselves.' he hasn't said any of that!" "This isn't new", he said.
The vanilla talk show host, who has also hosted the Oscars, has made a surprisingly vigorous defense of the actor/comedian - and rightly received a Twitter lashing from members of the LGBTQ community.
He went on, "I've taken 10 years to put that apology to work ..."
DeRay McKesson, the civil rights activist and Black Lives Matter supporter, tweeted: "I expected Ellen to actually ask Kevin Hart some sort of challenging question". I don't want to step on that stage and make that night about me and my past, when you have people that have worked hard to step on that stage for the first time and receive an award. "Because that was wrong".
DeGeneres also tweeted: "I believe in forgiveness. And I believe in Kevin Hart".

DeGeneres, for her part, revealed that she called the Academy to ask its leaders to reconsider having Hart host the Oscars.
DeGeneres said on the show that she believes that it is important for Hart to host, so much so that she says she personally called the Academy to get him back on.
"Has Kevin Hart made any meaningful effort to reach out to the LGTBQ community and listen to their perspective on why his past comments are so offensive and damaging?" Hart has not fully apologized or learned from his actions, and to give him the hosting gig would send the message that non-apologies are the way to go-not to mention possibly negatively impacting the Oscars' already low ratings. I've said who I am now versus who I was then.
He previously apologized for the tweets, and did so again in December. Twitter users didn't have to comb through "40,000 tweets" worth of content to find Hart's homophobic jokes as Hart insists. "You've done it. Don't let those people win - host the Oscars". This is a conversation I needed to have. I've moved on. I'm a grown man.
Adding that she's never one to buy into "mob mentalities" herself, McCain said that, for her, "Kevin Hart's apology hasn't really come up to snuff yet". This is what I want people to understand: "That's an attack to end me".
