"There are so many haters out there, whatever is going on the internet don't pay attention to them, that's a small group of people being very, very loud". "To go back through 40,000 tweets to get back to 2008 that's an attack, that's a malicious attack on my character, that's an attack to end me, that's not an attack to just stop the Oscars". It's all over the place. The comedian refused to apologize for the comments, saying that he had previously addressed the controversial tweets. Everyone took those headlines and started to run with it.

She noted that, as a lesbian, she had discussed his past homophobic material before the taped interview and said that she felt the Hart of those jokes had matured beyond them. "Now I'm a little upset". "I knew how important it was and how it was a dream". I know that within my apologies, I've taken 10 years to put my apology to work. I'm cultured. I'm manufactured. I'm a guy that understands now.

In the article, titled The Problem With Ellen DeGeneres' Kevin Hart Interview, Anderson said that the interview with Hart should have instead been conducted by a queer person of colour, such as Robin Roberts or Don Lemon. "I've addressed this several times". I am sensitive to all of that... I remember hearing this kind of language from my own family as young as 11-years-old, quietly listening to relatives make fun of the "down low" coworker and watching them turn their noses up at the cousin who brought their "roommate" home for Thanksgiving. I don't joke like that anymore, because that was wrong. "I don't do that".

The Oscars are due to be held on February 24, and a replacement host has not yet been named. She can not forgive Hart for what he has said, because she was no affected by it in the same way.

For the first time since stepping down as Oscars host, Kevin opens up to Ellen Degeneres about the rollercoaster ride of being hired to host the event, celebrating, then receiving a mountain of digital hate from fans. That's my reason for doing it. "I'm now taking away from all those moments because that night is now focused on something else now". "That's how I see it".

It said: "Many who might appear ideal to host have sidestepped the job". Once again, I'm sorry if these words hurt.

In the first seven days alone since the film was released, Netflix says that more than 45 million accounts have watched it. According to Netflix's Q4 data , the streaming platform reached 137 million subscribers earlier this year.

"I personally thought his apology after ... all this broke was sort of a non-apology apology", Huntsman said. "Either I can move forward, or I can't". And you know what? I don't know the flawless person society's now looking for, but it's not me. There is no ideal bone in my body. I don't want you to have to wait, so now it's gonna air tomorrow.

"I think he needs to come out and say I was wrong, that was ignorant, we have people that are killing themselves and committing suicide", she continued.

"They were like, 'Oh my God! I think you're great and you should host the Oscars!" a tweet read.

"LGBT people who love the Oscars were legitimately startled to see just how harsh his words were", Vary said.

"We want him to host, whatever we can do, we'd be thrilled", DeGeneres said the Academy told her in a phone call.

"You have grown", DeGeneres told him. I hope we can meet again.
