Kevin Hart posts cryptic post amid Oscars controversy

Men like Kelly are worth defending but not the black women and girls in our communities who fall prey to these men

Hart then promised he was "going to make sure that I don't do anything else offensive [in comedy] because I talked to some friends of mine" who had given him their point of view. According to Entertainment Weekly, Hart apologized again on Monday during his SiriusXM radio show Straight to the Hart.

The comedian stepped down from hosting the Oscars last month after coming under heat for failing to apologize for resurfaced tweets dated from 2009 to 2011 in which the comedian spewed blatant anti-gay rhetoric.

"I said I would much rather step down and apologize again", Hart told DeGeneres this week.

Lemon believes Hart has the potential to serve as an agent for change in the Black community.

Kevin Hart says Kevin Hart is so sorry.

Kevin added, "I'm not debating right from wrong". "I don't think it's wrong for people to have their own personal beliefs". But, the other side of it is this. Then, in a controversial move, she forgave him on behalf of the LGBTQ community and asked the Academy to reconsider his hosting position. If the fight from the LGBTQ community is equality, that's the fight. I don't like - like Don Lemon goes - Don Lemon goes on CNN and he's like 'you can fix this, become an ally.' That's not my - that's not my - that's not my life dream. "You can't change without a (sic) understanding of what GROWTH means".

Lemon revealed on air that the two had spoken for more than an hour over the phone, followed by some texting in a mostly off-the-record conversation so that Hart could speak his mind.

UAE's Sheikh Mohammed, PM Khan hold "wide-ranging talks"
A 21-gun salute heralded the arrival of the crown prince who was visiting Pakistan at the invitation of Prime Minister Imran Khan. The two leaders chose to form a task force for taking all necessary measures to deal with matters relating to trade enhancement.

An insider close to the production said Hart would have to approach them with "willingness to return". We thought it was okay to talk like that, because that's how we talked to one another.

The "Night School" star went on to explain he had revisited his tweets, as well as his 2010 comedy set on "Seriously Funny" in which he made homophobic jokes, as he claims he now understands how his material can "hurt" people.

The comedian has since deleted the tweets, but that wasn't before screen captures began circulating online.

Despite her support, Hart later announced that he would not be hosting the 2019 Academy Awards.

Hart admitted his is "evaluating" the idea.

Meanwhile, the Academy appears to be planning an Oscarcast devoid of a host and will instead will enlist some of the biggest A and B-listers to present awards.
