During a special hour-long interview on her show, DeGeneres, 60, asked Hart, 39, to explain the drama.

"If he comes out vociferously apologizing, then everybody deserves a second chance", she said.

Others even went so far to question Ellen DeGeneres' commitment to the gay community for allowing Hart to "absolve" himself. "Whatever we can do we would be thrilled, '" she told Mr. Hart.

DeGeneres was met with criticism on social media, with some commenters saying that Hart's homophobic jokes were a legitimate issue for discussion, and it wasn't a case of people maliciously trying to hurt him.

"When it happened", he said of his comments resurfacing, "my first thought is, I'm going to ignore it because it's ten years old".

Hart opens up to DeGeneres about being hired to host the 2019 Oscars, which he describes as a dream come true, especially as he would have been only the fourth African-American to host the ceremony. "It wasn't a coincidence that the day after I received the job, tweets somehow manifested from 2008", Hart said.

While the 91st Academy Awards is still set to air on February 24th without any announcement of a host, the world is still fixated on the public fallout between the Academy and the host that should have been. RadarOnline.com has learned the beloved talk show host is now under fire after publicly defending her longtime pal, Kevin Hart, over his homophobic tweet scandal.

Hart refused to apologize for his past tweets on DeGeneres' show Thursday, claiming he already had.

On DeGeneres' show, Hart said that he believed he ultimately had to "take a stand against the trolls".

On Twitter, Hart apologised to the LGBTQ community for what he called "my insensitive words from my past". "I know that I've apologized", Hart said. "You've already expressed that it's not being educated on the subject, not realising how unsafe those words are, not realising how many kids are killed for being gay or beaten up every day", says DeGeneres. I don't need the Academy to make the Oscars "hip" or bring in an edgy comedian who's going to appeal to a younger demographic. "You have apologized. You're apologizing again right now".

He also says that now that DeGeneres has backed him, he's "evaluating" taking up the job again.

Ellen would add that she is in Kevin Hart's corner. "So let me assess, just to sit in this space and really think, and you and I will talk before anything else". The host of the Oscars had made anti-gay jokes, and LGBT people who love the Oscars were legitimately startled to see just how harsh his words were.
