The Friday appearance on the daytime show seemed to be an attempt to make amends and apologize to the LGBTQ community for the Philadelphia native's past remarks on homosexuality, which included threats of violence toward his son if he were to identify as gay.

"I will say this, and I want to make this very clear". I'm sorry.' But then they go, 'But you didn't say it right.

It remains to be seen whether Kevin Hart will be offered the Oscars hosting job again, but we do know that Ellen has forgiven him, apparently on behalf of all queer people around the world. "You've already expressed that it's not being educated on the subject, not realizing how risky those words are, not realizing how many kids are killed for being gay or beaten up every day", said DeGeneres. I've said where the rights and wrongs were.

He added, "I don't think it's wrong for people to have their own personal beliefs".

"I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past."
Instead of just talk, critics called for Hart to become an ally and use his platform for LGBTQ advocacy, specifically in the Black community. I want you to be happy, be gay, be happy.' And then I say as a heterosexual male, if I can do something to stop my son... that's where the joke starts!'

He continued, "If you don't want to accept people for their change, then where are you trying to get to the equal part?"

LAS VEGAS-Apple has for years carefully maintained a walled garden for its streaming video features and services. This is to "create a consistent experience across Samsung's platform", said Samsung.

But en route to that decision, Hart had to deal with heat from newscaster Don Lemon.

The father of three explained he had revisited his offensive tweets and his comedy set on his 2010 comedy special Seriously Funny in which he also made homophobic jokes.

Late last week, Hart was a guest on The Ellen Degeneres Show where the host stated she spoke with the Acamdey of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences who still wished to have Hart take on the role of host.

Hart did reconsider hosting the show after the support from DeGeneres and his fans, but ultimately, it looks like he won't be hosting the 2019 Academy Awards. He wants us to accept him.
