In December, Kevin announced Hard within a few days, first, that he was going to stay out of the spotlight and then for his resignation from the Job. The Background of anti-gay Tweets and jokes of the comedian from the years 2009 to 2011. Now, the American actor and comedian presents a possible return to the show stage. He’ll think about it, said Hart in the “Ellen DeGeneres Show”.
The Comedian had rejected an official apology, however, wrote on Twitter: “I apologize sincerely for the LGBTQ Community for my insensitive words from my past.”
I have made the choice to step down from hosting this year’s Oscar’s….this is because I do not want to be a distraction on a night that should be celebrated by so many amazing talented artists. I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past.

host Ellen DeGeneres was not Hard, just cover the back, but was even active for his return as Oscar host: you’ve called at the Oscar Academy, which would be, in your words, “excited”, if Hard the Job would take. Hart have apologized several times for previous homophobic Statements, said DeGeneres. The 60-Year-old is married to actress Portia de Rossi.
About the reactions on the Internet on the announcement of his Oscar moderation Hart said: “This was no accident, but an attack”. You have to want to destroy his career. DeGeneres advised him to ignore the headwind of the “trolls”. “This is a small group of people, which is very, very loud. We are a huge group that loves you and you at the Oscars as a presenter wants to see.”
Not everyone sees DeGeneres’ commitment to Hard and the possible return of the Comedians on the Oscar stage positive. Especially from the LGBTQ Community criticism came.
“apologize and get on with it, does not make the world a better place for people who are gay, or people who are transgender,” said CNN Journalist Don Lemon. He can see that Hart is not a “significant commitment to the LGBT community”.
“Apologizing and moving on does not make the world a better place for people who are gay or people who are transgender, being an ally does,” says CNN’s @DonLemon, reacting to the Oscars’ openness to Kevin Hart’s return https://t.co/ITGU3Uj2ez pic.twitter.com/4u48sfBF0U

Phillip Picardi, the editor-in-chief of “Out Magazine” wrote on Twitter, “can anyone forgive in the name of the Community.” The presenter had failed to lead a productive conversation about the meaning of his words and attitude.
And furthermore, Ellen can’t forgive someone on behalf of the community, LOL. That’s NOT how that works! I think she gave Kevin a pass instead of having an actually productive conversation about what these words and attitudes mean and how prevalent they are in our society.

Also, the TV author Kris, a fifth criticized in a guest post for the “Hollywood Reporter” that Hard themselves as victims have shown: In the Interview, he tried to find the critics as “trolls” to minimize, “to illuminate rather than to the real consequences of his own words”. On DeGeneres’ support, he was shocked.
The Oscars will be in the night of the 25th. February awarded in Los Angeles. A replacement for Hart has not named the Academy so far.
