And he explained/apologized for the routine in the past. And it seems like he has grown since then. His life is very public and I don't think people currently associate Kevin Hart with homophobia.

He's smart to step away. Even if he apologized again, the same folks are still gonna be mad. The only way to win is to not play.

you gotta do the full penance payment tour. tearful press conference. and so on.

the backlash to his non-apology is prolly just as notable as the backlash to the tweets. he got other celebs and industry luminaries on his ass now.

they *will* remind you exactly who you are.


he better book that somber ellen appearance soon.

If his whole reason for not apologizing was because he had "grown as a person since then"...isn't apologizing for shit you did a sign of growth?

And if you're hell-bent on not apologizing...then don't! Don't turn the gig down cause they want you to apologize....THEN APOLOGIZE!!

Dumb ass

dudes whole image was built on being the safe funny good hearted nonthreathening black guy.

‘they’ gave him a pass for cheating on his pregnant wife. but you cant piss off gay people and not repent. not as a black man in hollywood fam. not as someone sponsored by nike.

this is the type of shit ‘they’ hound you with in every interview you do for the rest of your career. like a domestic violence incident nshit.

half of black people already hate on him too (especially other black comedians) so they will prolly cheer the downfall.

"I'm sorry for the bad tweets, I've learned a lot and changed as a person since then, yada yada," this is somehow actually dumber than Joy Ann Reid claiming the Russians hacked her and made her be homophobic ten years ago. This almost seems like he didn't want to host the Oscars to begin with and this is his way out, unless he's really that dumb.

he tried to flex what Hollywood muscles he thought he had at this point.

This whole thing have to be incredibly humbling for him. Like others have said, it'll be interesting to see how much thi$ hurt$ him going forward.

Like, that seems like a dumb street joke you'd overhear in a bar, as opposed to something an actual successful professional stand-up did.

In response to Reply # 35


  

          

Everything now is for the brand




"That, too, rang hollow for many. Less than two hours later, Hart announced via Twitter that he was removing himself from the gig, and he finally offered the apology everyone was looking for.

I have made the choice to step down from hosting this year's Oscar's….this is because I do not want to be a distraction on a night that should be celebrated by so many amazing talented artists. I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past."

there's not even a semblance of joke anywhere in them, funny or not.

He should have clearly, fully apologized when he first addressed this a few years ago. But even now, he should have apologized again.

My guess is that he thinks he's taking a stand against PC pressure on comedians (which is a real thing), but *this* is not the...mound to expire on. Save that for instances where you actually made a real joke, preferably an actually funny one.

No one should have to keep apologizing over and over because folks just now seeing old clips.

I’m with KH ok this.

I got too much money to be out here bending over backwards every time someone plays anold clip.

Dude has generated billions since that joke so nah... it’s not like this is new jokes. If Eddie Murphy was asked to do the Oscars and they pulled up his Raw material does he have to apologize again.

Fuck’em, find another nigga to do that stale ass award show.

shut up already, damn

32. "His Raw material were actual jokes (that were received as extremely"
In response to Reply # 29


  

          

funny at the time.) KH's tweets in question here don't read like actual jokes.

And also, what I read of his former apology didn't come off like an actual apology. But let's say he fully apologized in the past. Why wouldn't he post a link to his former apology now and just say something like "everything I said then in my apology I continue to feel today", rather than just drop out of hosting the Oscars? Either he thinks he's bigger than the Oscars and doesn't need to do that, or he knows his former apology isn't really an apology. Or both.

Like I said, *this* is not the case for him to take this stance on.

It will be forgotten in a week because America will move onto the next OMG moment.


It will come up again right before the Oscars and then Kevin will have a stand up special where he makes another $100 mill while joking about how they tried to bend him over for that lame ass hosting gig.

People will dig up the thing you said 5 or 10 or 20 years ago, but the bulk of the outrage will go away in a few days. By the time he promotes something else it will have faded to where it may come up occasionally.

He plays this game now, he'll need to address it at every turn from now until the oscars.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

which is why he apologized on the way out.

it wasn't about apologizing. he didn't like the academy holding it over his head, like, we're only gonna give you this thing if you apologize. He said fuck your thing, then apologized. People will question the sincerity of his apology either way, but I would guess more so if it appeared like he was only doing it because was getting something out of it.

then for the next few months, every appearance is him giving the same rehearsed speech. Why deal with any of that if you don't have to?

To think that everyone is always going to get along, not be offended, and not be exposed to offensive statements is simply naive and spineless.

What a stiff and humorless room that must be, where a bunch of professional pretenders sit (desperately) and stew and wait to hopefully have their names called. To be so sanctimonious themselves, to go and hang it over this guy's head after he already expressed regret and demonstrated his own personal growth... that's actually just gross.

In response to Reply # 47


          

being afraid that your son will turn out gay is the literal definition of homophobia

everyone is hung up on the word apology but that's too broad

just saying you're sorry isn't really the point...its whether during that apology you demonstrate an understanding of the destuctive nature of your words and the underlying assumptions behind them.

I don't know if he did that back then, or even now.

I sure know that he didn't say "i no longer fear my son being gay"

which would be WAAAAAY more powerful than any apology.

I'm actually most shocked at Handler. I knew she was problematic, but not out there tweeting the "F" word

Schumer and Silverman's brands are basically genderbent edgelords. Hollywood just figured out how to "cuten" them up for a general audience. so them saying this shit doesn't surprise

61. "I have a number of thoughts about this"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

1) the comedy routine based on his son possibly being "gay" is homophobic, and if confronted about it, he should address it and how harmful that stuff is in a statement, preferably written in polite-society appropriate language from a publicist like everyone else does. and then if people still want to give him grief, he at least has something to show he acknowledged how bad it is.

2) the tweets are worse. and since the Internet tends to be "forever" unless you anticipate these changes, why even TWEET shit like this in the first place when it's been shown you can be Summerjammed in seconds if someone don't like you. since they're out there, you gotta address that head on and with the "correct" language, not this bull-headed shit, even though the reasons (I'll detail below) might be some bullshit.

3) some of the social media outrage about his pre-Hollywood comedy is being generated in bad faith; Kevin Hart hosting an awards show like this is kind of inconsequential to the point that I wouldn't expect him to be up on that stage making gay "jokes". it's like how Eddie Murphy DAMN sure isn't going to be out there in 2018 making the jokes he did in Delirious. because this is coming from a largely white gay or white and "liberal" (quotes for reason) audience, I find this unearthing kind of suspect. had it come from Black gays and allies I think I'd feel less conflicted about this; it reminds me of how Cernovich, Hannity et al go at dudes when they start slandering their boy 45. I find it HARD to believe they give that much of a shit about Kevin Hart and the homophobia of his comedy acts other than it makes him look bad.

Yes, I'm mad. Let's move on.

Like rap; Why is okay for Ice Cube to say something you wouldn't accept from a politician or a businessman?

Because of context, and who he is.

This is a stupid attempt to make comedy "fair and balanced" and also misses the fucking point. If someone isn't gay but the gay community accepts them and knows that aren't homophobic and then that person says something funny (or stupid) it isn't taken the same way as say if Trump said it. Trump words are meant to be hurtful - Amy Schumer's are not.
