After resigning from his post as host of the Oscars several weeks ago, Kevin Hart appeared on Ellen this past January 4. After opening up about his decision to step down, Degeneres made the unexpected step of fully supporting Hart and calling for his reinstatement.



Ellen Reveals She Called the Academy to Help Re-Hire Kevin Hart As Oscars Host youtu.be

During his interview on the show, Hart claimed he'd made many apologies for his offensive tweets in the decade since making them (though many doubt the validity of this claim).

Though the endorsement from Ellen (one of the most respected and well-liked LGBTQ voices in American entertainment) did reportedly get the Academy to reconsider Hart as host, a fresh wave of criticism has also emerged to speak out against Hart's previous "apologies."

One of Hart's critics is CNN host Don Lemon, who, on his show this past Friday, January 4, broke down why a proper apology is so important:


Don Lemon to Kevin Hart: Walking away right now is your choice youtu.be

Twitter thought Lemon's words were incredibly wise.




It's unclear whether the Academy will ask Hart once again to host the Oscars, but it's pretty obvious Twitter would have some strong feelings against it.


We all make mistakes, but many believe Hart hasn't owned up for his in a truly sincere way.


Hart addressed Lemon's segment on Instagram, writing about how the greats in many professions take time to learn.

Many online hoped to see an interview between Lemon and Hart at some point.

Others felt Lemon was too harsh on the comedian.

But, for the most part, people seemed to agree Hart's actions would speak louder than words.

Perhaps there's only one way to truly settle this...

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:
