ELLEN DEGENERES ‘BELIEVES IN SECOND CHANCES’—WANTS KEVIN HART TO HOST THE OSCARSJanuary 4, 2019
Ellen DeGeneres and Kevin Hart discussed the recent homophobic tweets scandal that resulted in Hart stepping down from hosting this year’s Academy Awards. Clarifying his stance on the tweets, The Upside star says he understands he was wrong and has apologized several times over the years—adding that he’s not the same “immature comedian” he was 10 years ago. With regards to whomever dug up the tweets, Kevin believes “this is bigger than the Oscars” and was an attack to ruin his career and those around him.
