Ellen Fans Turn On Her After She Admits She Phoned Academy To Have Kevin Hart Reinstated
Ellen DeGeneres is facing backlash over her support for Kevin Hart. The 60-year-old dismissed those who have criticized Hart for making homophobic comments.
Appearing on Friday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the talk show host revealed she has called the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. She confessed that she “really wants him to host” and asked the Oscar panel to reconsider their decision to drop him.
Two days after Hart was given the high-profile gig, he was forced to back out when some of his tweets blasting homosexuals resurfaced. The tweets were from a decade ago. But Twitter has exploded with angry messages.
