Hart - who was announced as Oscars host in early December only to step down days later after previous homophobic tweets by him resurfaced - told Variety he was doing "fine" after the controversy. I had to address those tweets in 2012 in a very, very heavy junket where I was asked questions about homophobia based on those tweets, and I had to address it and apologize and say I understand what those words do and how they hurt.
In the beginning of the controversy friend and co-star on a few projects, Nick Cannon came out to defend Hart against the Twitter mob. "His recent Instagram tirade is proof of how un-sorry he is". The funnyman said he was "upset" by people's harsh reactions to his past offensive tweets and angered that the Academy gave him an ultimatum. Have for a while now. "It was the LGBTQI+ community because we're sick to s- of it", tweeted another user.
Ellis is scheduled to appear on CNN Tonight with Don Lemon on Friday night to discuss Hart's appearance on "Ellen" in greater detail.
However, just because there's a vacancy in the hosting gig does not mean that Hart needs to return, or just because one gay person has forgiven him does not mean that the rest of the community has to forgive him as well. I've yet to go back to that version of the immature comedian that once was.
The interview clips proved divisive on Twitter, with some feeling that DeGeneres was giving Hart a pass for his homophobic comments. "If people are going to evolve, what's the point of evolving if you're not going to move on?"

"Ellen did, in fact, call the Academy about reinstating Hart", the insider confirmed. No, they weren't "haters" who came after you. "I think you're great and you should host the Oscars!".
"We want him to host, whatever we can do, we'd be thrilled", DeGeneres said the Academy told her in a phone call. "The Academy is saying, 'What can we do to make this happen?'"
"After a day full of celebrations and congratulations, I'm hit with an onslaught, on social media, of my past, coming back up again... literally the next morning", the comedian says, referring to the homophobic tweets he posted between 2009-11. Hostin added. "When is a person allowed to become an ally?"
"They're gonna win if you don't host the Oscars", DeGeneres said.
Hart told DeGeneres that he has apologized for his past words but that this was a tough incident for him because he felt it was a attack by "trolls" on his character and career.
