"I called them. I said Kevin's on, I have no idea if he wants to come back and host, but what are your thoughts?" This is stuff I've addressed, I've talked about this.
In the interview, Hart insisted he had previously apologised for his homophobic tweets and said that the timing of the news reports revealing his homophobic tweets "wasn't a coincidence", but instead was a "malicious attack on my character".
Members of the LGBTQ community publicly characterized DeGeneres' endorsement of Hart on Thursday as a "betrayal", while others scolded her for seemingly belittling journalists and other knowledgeable critics for researching the incoming host's background.

He was willing to meet Trump again at any time, he added, "to produce a result that will be welcomed by the global community". Trump shakes hands with North Korea leader Kim Jong Un at the Capella resort on Sentosa Island, in Singapore.
He went on, "I've taken 10 years to put that apology to work ... I'm in a completely different space in my life".

"And I believe in Ellen", another social media user tweeted. I believe in second chances.

Ultima Thule was named for a mythical, far-northern island in medieval literature and cartography, according to Nasa. Scientists wanted New Horizons observing Ultima Thule during the encounter, not phoning home.
Because of those things, some fans believe that Ellen could help Hart with the controversy in two ways: For one, she might be giving him the platform he needs to address it, which he should be comfortable with since they're both comedians.
In the next clip, DeGeneres - who has herself hosted the Oscars - says that she called the Academy to say that she would support reinstating Hart as host.
Kevin Hart seemed like a sure thing - until he wasn't, after past homophobic tweets resurfaced and he didn't apologize. Hostin added. "When is a person allowed to become an ally? Please accept my apology'". It was, "Kevin Hart steps 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. You're apologising again right now. don't let those people win.
Hart also acknowledged that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the governing body in charge of the Oscars, had given him an "ultimatum" to make a public apology in the wake of the outcry. Maybe. But his attitude in response to his own hurtful words kind of spoiled the whole shebang, and even though he apologizes in this Ellen interview, he still seems indignant about the entire ordeal. "Either I can move forward, or I can't". "I don't want you to have to wait, so now it's gonna air tomorrow". DeGeneres faces scrutiny for being too lenient with a friend and using her own status as a famous and powerful gay person to let his previous comments go. That's why they [The Academy] haven't found another host.
