Kevin Hart ‘evaluating’ returning to host the Oscars after Ellen De Generes sit-down

Hart had backed away two days after being named host last month when some homophobic tweets he had made a decade ago resurfaced.

Kevin Hart is apparently shutting the door on hosting the Oscars, despite seeming to suggest otherwise while talking to Ellen DeGeneres.

In a tweet announcing his decision to walk away from the job, Hart said: " I do not want to be a distraction on a night that should be celebrated by so many unbelievable talented artists.

The comedienne then called the Academy and asked them if they would take Hart back, to which they apparently said yes. 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.

But many are angry that she appears to have let Hart off the hook, despite the homophobic gags, which were made during a comedy special made in 2010. "Because that was wrong".

"Yo, if my son comes home and tries to play with my daughter's doll house I'm going to break it over his head and say in my voice 'Stop. that's gay, '" read another tweet.

"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?' And they were like, 'Oh my God, we want him to host! But I don't believe in going backwards".

For defending Kevin Hart and believing in giving him a second chance, DeGeneres was quickly attacked. "What was once the brightest star and brightest light ever, just got real dark", Hart told DeGeneres in the tell-all episode.

"It's depressing that Ellen's enthusiasm for Hart hosting the Oscars ... led her to contribute to a narrative that Hart is the victim of "haters", wrote Buzzfeed senior film reporter Adam B. Vary.

Ellen DeGeneres' attempt to clear comedian Kevin Hart's name and reinstate him as Oscars host did not go over well with critics online.

In one of his previous tweets, Hart had described an actor's picture as a "gay billboard for AIDS".

"You have grown; you have apologised; you're apologising again right now". I've yet to go back to that version of the immature comedian that once was. Either I can move forward or I can't, but you can't grow as a person without mistakes.

Since them, producers of the awards show have reportedly struggled to find a replacement. When he received the ultimatum from the Academy to either apologize or step down as host, he said it was like a dark cloud had descended over everything. "She will ask him, have him clear the air and we can all put this past us". "I'm not that guy", he said, explaining why he stepped down from his Oscars hosting gig. You've done it. Don't let these people win. "I don't want you to have to wait, so now it's gonna air tomorrow".
