"There's no more conversation about it". I'm over the moment.

During his hit on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Hart notably did not apologize and drew ire from many who noted that he was playing the victim card.

The actor said he has given all he can thus far and "said everything I can possibly say". "The microscope on me is so f****ng thick that they're looking for everything".

"'You want blood? You want my arms?"' he went on.

"It's hard to predict what can happen", Hart continued. "I don't want people to think there's a thing about me and the Academy", he added. "Because now we're in a space where I'm around people of the LGBTQ community, and I'm now aware of how these words make them feel, and why they say 'That s- hurt because of what I've been through'". We thought it was okay to talk like that, because that's how we talked to one another. This is wrong now. Additionally, Kevin spoke to Don Lemon on the phone over the weekend.

"I will say this, and I want to make this very clear", he said.

This week, Kevin Hart went to his "Straight From the Hart" SiriusXM broadcast to apologize to the LGBTQ community for his past anti-gay tweets.

Lemon did say, however, that he accepts the comedian's choice to not be an ally for the LGBTQ community and everyone else should, too.

"I might get a lot of blowback for that, but I'm just being honest". On Wednesday morning, however, Hart appeared on GMA, where he emphatically closed the door on the Oscars issue. Shortly after, reports have floated that ABC is open to Hart returning hosting the Oscars, which have flagged in viewership over the past few years. This time he did it in the third person.

Harts homophobic tweets from 2009 - 2011 resurfaced last month after he was given the gig. I've addressed it. I've spoken on it. "So anything, anything that I say that's not appropriate, that's wrong. you're gonna pick me apart". I shouldn't have to prove who I am, I shouldn't have to prove the levels of love that I am capable of giving.

Last week, the influential talk show host Ellen DeGeneres revealed that she had called up the Academy to vouch for Hart's good character and urged him to take back the role as host to the anger of many left-wing activists. She says its reps instantly replied that they still wanted the funnyman to be the night's MC.

'If you keep feeding this energy, then it's going to grow, ' he said.
