On Friday, Kevin Hart is appearing on The Ellen Show and addressed that he is “evaluating” becoming host again for the Oscars.
While on the interview, Kevin states that he did not want to pay mind to the comments about his old tweets, but suddenly his name was tainted as “homophobic.”
His old tweets stated, “If my son comes home & try’s 2 play with my daughters doll house I’m going 2 break it over his head & say n my voice ‘stop that’s gay.'” Hart also said in one of his comedy specials, “One of my biggest fears is my son growing up and being gay.”

Degeneres is also facing heat because she criticized the Hart’s backlash as “internet haters.”
She also boldly stated that the gay community was “fine” with his apology from 2014 and “re-apology” from 2018 when he said, “I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past.”
Both comedians are now receiving negative commentary for their “insensitive” remarks behind “trolls” and “haters.”
Ellen even took her remark further saying Kevin had the “right” to host the Oscars.
Do you think Hart should be the “rightful” host?
