Will Kevin Hart Host The Oscars? Ellen Defends Him [Video]
Kevin Hart stepped down from hosting the Oscars declaring he would not apologize for his past homophobic comments which were resurfaced after it was announced he would host the Academy Awards. The star later had a change of heart and did apologize.
Despite the tweets and comments he made, DeGeneres said Hart had grown as a person.
“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. We’re a huge group of people who love you and want to see you host the Oscars,” she said.
