Kevin Hart Issues New Apology To The LGBTQ Community Over Offensive Remarks
Jan 10 2019
"It's all they ever wanted him to do, and he's doing it in spades". The 39-year-old Night School star responded by saying on Straight From The Hart, "Don Lemon goes on CNN and he's like 'You can fix this, become an ally.' That's not my.it's not my life dream". Hart said it's too late to prepare.
The Awards are being held on February 24, six weeks from now. You're not going to hear me say anything else about it. And I'm going to say it just in case you guys try to take this sh*t and chop it up, I will rebuttal with this f*cking piece right here. "I would like to call myself a perfectionist, so if I do something I want to give it my all".
"If it's accepted, great", he continued. "I'm literally, I'm over that, I'm over the moment".
But any goodwill that created was squashed last week when he appeared on The Ellen Degeneres Show and attacked the people who he said were out to "destroy" him. If you don't want to accept people for their change, then where are you trying to get to the equal part? But once they did, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences have botched the response, yielding a how-not-to class in public relations and stewardship of the entertainment industry's most prestigious award.
The outlet reported that, as of this writing, neither producers nor the Academy have reached out to one single host to step into Hart's shoes.
Among them were posts where he labeled people "f**gs" and jokes about what he would do if his son came out as gay. After an appearance on Ellen Degeneres' show, it was rumored that the Academy had considered welcoming Hart back as the host had he used the opportunity to apologize.
Just three days later, he stepped down after homophobic tweets from eight years ago re-emerged; he said he's already apologized for the tweets and that he's not the same person he was at that time. She said she'd called the Academy and been told they'd love to have him back, adding that to not take the job would let "the haters win".
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".
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.
"But in the fight for equality, that means that there has to be an acceptance for change. I'm glad he apologized".
"The Oscars are poised to embark on one of the most radical reinventions in the awards show's long history", reportsVariety.
