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...

We're never that surprised when we encounter people who are lackluster at their jobs. Bad waiters, rude customer service people, dishonest contractors, or inept colleagues abound throughout daily life.

But it's interesting that we expect to encounter that kind of ineptitude far less with certain professionals.

On the internet, people tend to say things they likely would not in the real world. The anonymity of a forum or comment section--composed only of verbal contributions beneath made up names--compels us to socialize with less inhibition; we take more risks with the peers we can't see in the flesh.
