Kevin Hart, Still Wrestling With Homophobic Tweets, Sort of Apologizes

Because now we're in a space where I'm around people of the LGBTQ community, and I'm now aware of how these words make them feel, and why they say 'That s**t hurt because of what I've been through'.

The Hollywood Reporter states that Hart issued an apology for his past comments on his Straight From the Hart podcast this week. "You're the best", Rock said.

Kevin Hart speaks at Morehouse College on September 11, 2018 in Atlanta. "So anything, anything that I say that's not appropriate, that's wrong. you're gonna pick me apart". If he doesn't want to be an ally or a spokesperson for the gay community, he does not have to do that. He said that "acceptance for change" is necessary. The fight is the will and want for equality.

On Monday, Jan. 7, Hart went on his Sirius XM radio show to address the overall controversy. "Where does the equality part come in?"

Hart went on to equate the response he had received to his first apology as a form of "bullying", adding that "it turns into, you're bullying them because now, now that I said what I said the way that I would say it because I'm me, you're now trying to change me into becoming what version of me you want me to be".

Hart's "GMA" interview Wednesday capped off a roller coaster few weeks, which date back to when he was announced as the host for the Oscars on December 4.

The comedian initially rejected demands to apologize, insisting he had apologized for the tweets several times before, but later said sorry again after stepping down as Oscars presenter.

Last month, Hart chose to step down from his role hosting the ceremony after LGBT activists complained about anti-gay tweets he posted between 2009 to 2011, despite his profuse apologies. I've addressed it. I've spoken on it.

"I'm not debating right from wrong".

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. You should host the Oscars.

DeGeneres - a past Oscars host herself - said she called the Academy and asked them to reconsider having Hart host.

"I feel like if you're not homophobic anymore, you shouldn't mind apologizing for your past homophobia again", one Twitter user wrote.

Kevin added the landscape of the world has changed now, particularly with the prevalence of social media, and he regrets the way he spoke on his Twitter page.
