Kevin Hart Apologizes Again for Past Gay Jokes

Kevin Hart responded to Don Lemon's request for him to become and LBGTQ ally

Appearing on ABC's Good Morning America Wednesday, co-host Michael Strahan repeatedly asked the movie star to comment on his apology or controversy, to which Hart replied multiple times "I'm over it".

"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 fantastic talented artists", he wrote on Twitter.

He told "GMA" he's not giving any more explanations. "So without addressing it or apologizing again, I've done it, you have to understand and accept the change".

Hart and Cranston tried to be as authentic to the characters as they could, the actor said, adding that the film really dives into perceptions, considering the two men come from two very different backgrounds. "You're not getting me".

The comedian added: 'If you didn't [hear the apology], I don't know what you're looking for.

"I think it's my best work to date", Hart said about playing an ex-con, who cares for a quadriplegic.

Kevin Hart claims he's been trying hard to get back into the good graces of the LGBTQ community and took to the airwaves of his SiriusXM show "Straight from the Hart" this week to once again apologize for the homophobic jokes that landed him in big trouble.

He continued: "I have explained how I've evolved, which makes me say, 'I'm over it.' I'm not saying how I've changed any more". We both made valid points, he made one real strong point and when he made that point, I said I get it. "That being said, I don't have to prove that to anybody".

The Times reports on Mayor de Blasio's plan to "guarantee health care for all New Yorkers", legal and otherwise. Get the health care that you need when you need it". "And we're doing that here in this city".


Then later that night on CNN, Lemon called for the "The Upside" actor to become an ally for the LGBTQ community and help eradicate homophobia across the board, but especially in the Black community.

"If the fight from the LGBTQ community is equality, that's the fight".

Just three days later, he stepped down after homophobic tweets from eight years ago re-emerged; he said he's already apologized for the tweets and that he's not the same person he was at that time.

Kevin Hart's semi-apology tour continued on Wednesday morning during a new interview with Andy Cohen, just hours after saying he wouldn't be addressing his Oscar controversy ever again. "I've said who I am now versus who I was then".

But any goodwill that created was squashed last week when he appeared on The Ellen Degeneres Show and attacked the people who he said were out to "destroy" him. "I can't do that right now".

"You may not like the way he said it, but he said it".

As for whether he'll host this year's Oscars after all, Hart gave a definitive "no" for the first time.
