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.

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:

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...

Indeed, more often than not, people find or are told a "fun fact" about anything from an animal species to a famous celebrity which might make them want to cry or even throw up.

We've all heard some conspiracy theories about certain businesses, most of which are outrageously false.

That laundromats are simply a facade for shadier practices (including, not so ironically, money laundering) or that the Coca-Cola company invented "New Coke" with the express purpose of improving sales on original Coke.

But every now and then, we can't help but wonder what really goes on behind closed doors in certain professions.

And are eager to hear all the juicy tidbits from people working in that industry.

Finding a healthy work/life balance is extremely difficult.

Depending on their jobs, some people are barely home in time to spend any quality time with their loved ones, and weekends are hardly relaxing, as they are often devoted to chores and errands.

These are only a few reasons many people have pushed to adopt four day work weeks.

And while there seem to be multiple advantages to one's mental health and self-esteem, could eliminating 8 hours of work possibly have any downsides to it?
