Kevin Hart was a guest on a recent episode of Ellen DeGeneres' "The Ellen Show" and he dished on all about his Oscar hosting controversy. In this case I just said I wanted to walk away because it was a conversation that was just going to continue and continue and continue.
"To see a friend reach a moment like that, to be able to share it with him and then two days later the entire energy is shifted, it hit him pretty hard", says Cannon, who's now hosting the hit new Fox series The Masked Singer. It was, 'Kevin Hartsteps down because he refuses to apologize for homophobic tweets.' This was what was said and it was blasted all over the internet, and the word "again" somehow got lost, which was a major word. "I know he doesn't need to, and that's one of the reasons I commended the stance he took".
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". However, just because there's a vacancy in the hosting gig does not mean that Hart needs to return, or just because one gay person has forgiven him does not mean that the rest of the community has to forgive him as well. "Because that was wrong".
At the end of the hour, Hart said, "You have put a lot of things on my mind", promising that he was "evaluating this conversation". "We are a huge group of people who love you and want to see you host the Oscars", she said.
DeGeneres shared the first clip on herTwitter account, captioning it "I believe in forgiveness". Now all of a sudden it's a little darker because the conversation isn't about me hosting the Oscars, the conversation is about Kevin Hart's tweets 10 years ago and homophobia.
But Behar wasn't feeling it, saying she had a whole list of other people who could host the show - people like Adam Sandler, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Steve Martin - before comparing the situation to Brett Kavanaugh.
DeGeneres, who is openly gay and hosted the Oscars in 2007 and 2014, said the Academy, which organizes the ceremony, had responded that they would be "thrilled" to have him host the February 24 awards. He has also made anti-gay comments in his standup in the past. "I'm glad it's as authentic and real as I could've hoped it would be", he added.
The Kevin HartOscars saga is far from over, it appears. Not "I'm sorry people are so sensitive". The comedian refused to apologize for the comments, saying that he had previously addressed the controversial tweets. So I was going to leave it alone.
DeGeneres also revealedshe had spoken to the Academy about Hart, and tweeted the hashtag, #OscarsNeedHart. "I don't want to step on that stage and make that night about me and my past". I've moved on. I'm a grown man.
The Academy has not named a new host in the month since Hart stepped down. "Comedians are the people that are going to say what you think but never say".
I'm hoping that it will be a warm welcome back to San Antonio , a place where he has won a championship and grew up here. Leonard isn't anxious about the reception, saying that a negative reaction "can only make me a better player".

Local TV footage showed the small van with a smashed-up front end, as ambulance workers and police officers rushed to the scene. It was not immediately clear whether he was referring to a specific execution or the country's system of capital punishment.
The clip then becomes distorted, with the television going black and showing an announcement, "One summer can change everything". As you can see in the following video, Netflix used a Dick Clark's New Year's Eve broadcast and turned it Upside Down.
Although we fully expect it to be launched in the first half of 2019 , picking out a particular month will be tough right now. Additionally, the Samsung Galaxy A50 will support more than one rear camera, and the primary one will have a 24MP sensor.
