Kevin Hart being one of the funniest men in comedy faces ridicule over a tweet posted over 5 years ago. This controversy lead to many apologies and what appears to be a choice not to host the Oscar. The comedian and actor appeared on "Good Morning America" on Wednesday telling host Michael Strahan "no" when asked if he will helm the Academy Awards this February. It is said that Hart stepped down 2 days after he announced he would host allegedly following the release of what some say are “homophobic” comments he made years ago.
I had a chance to review the interview posted below and there are a few questions that can come of this. Question: Why are we so concern what people do in their past? Do we not know people grow and mature? Also, aren’t comedians allowed to be politically “un-correct?” Using the words "I'm over it," Hart made a great point of how America loves to hash over things that offend and requires more and more no matter how you apologized. Although Michael continued to provoke conversation Hart continued to say:
"There's no more conversation about it. I'm over that, I'm over the moment. I'm not giving no more explanation of who I am ... I'm just done. If you didn't [hear the apology], then I don't know what you're looking for." "I'm a good person," he added. "I love to love. If you don't see that, then that means it's a problem with you. I have nothing else to prove." –Kevin Hart
I believe he is sincere in his apology and hope that America will use reason and accept it. What are your thoughts? Comment below or on Facebook!
