Ellen DeGeneres still wants Kevin Hart to host the Oscars

2018 brought more conflict to the already controversial Oscars when host Kevin Hart stepped down after refusing to apologize for homophobic jokes made in the past, including one about hurting his son if he found his son playing with a doll house.

Ellen DeGeneres is urging Kevin Hart to reconsider hosting this year's Oscars.

Hart said his hesitation to host, which he said was a dream for him, comes from fear of the people who went through his almost 40,000 tweets to find incriminating ones. So let me assess, just to sit in this space and really think. "The black community has been so targeted by bias and racism and prejudice for so long, you would think he would be an ally to the LGBTQ community". I know that within my apologies, I've taken 10 years to put my apology to work. "When me and Will Ferrell did Get Hard, and we did the promo tour, that's when Kevin Hart was hit with so much stuff... Because that was wrong".

DeGeneres shared the first clip on her Twitter account, captioning it "I believe in forgiveness".

"Leaving here I promise you I'm evaluating this conversation", Hart told DeGeneres.

The Academy apparently asked Hart to publicly apologize, but he initially refused.

In the next segment, Ellen said that she wants him to host the Oscars and that she even called a representative of the Academy to try to get him his hosting gig back.

Ellen "Spokesperson-for-all-the-gays" DeGeneres has, for some reason, absolved Kevin Hart of all of his sins. She also hoped that if Hart does end up hosting, he uses the situation as a "teaching moment", something Sunny Hostin also agreed with.

"I personally thought his apology after ... all this broke was sort of a non-apology apology", Huntsman said. You have grown, you have apologized, you are apologized again right now. "I am evolving and want to continue to do so". You've done it. Don't let these people win.

While Cannon says he hasn't "had any real conversations" with the women he called out, he's "looking forward to them".

The former Saturday Night Live star added "FREE LOUIE [sic] CK!" and declared that if Hart doesn't host the Oscars he will boycott. So I was going to leave it alone. The comedian gave up the gig after the academy asked him to apologize, but later had a change of heart and apologized to anyone who was offended by his statements. "I'm not that guy".

When DeGeneres tweeted about the interview on Thursday, fans had mixed feelings to the news: some commended DeGeneres for giving Hart a platform on which to speak while others argued Hart did not deserve the chance.
