Posted on 01/03/2019 6:49:47 PM PST by EdnaMode
In a somewhat surprising turn of events, The Ellen DeGeneres Show will serve as the first stop on the Great Kevin Hart Redemption Tour of 2019. The actor who stepped down as host of the Academy Awards last month after refusing to apologize for homophobic remarks from his past will appear on Ellen DeGeneres talk show on Friday for what she calls an incredible and honest conversation.
DeGeneres broke the news herself Thursday night, tweeting, I had an incredible and honest conversation with @KevinHart4real about hosting the #Oscars. It was supposed to air on Monday. I dont want you to have to wait, so now its gonna air tomorrow.
The responses to DeGeneres announcement were mixed. Some followers commended the host, a married lesbian, for her willingness to shine a light on anti-LGBT behavior, while others questioned the purpose of DeGeneres giving Hart a platform for his redemption. Ellen executive producer Andy Lassner personally brushed off one followers catty remark (Anything for ratings ), tweeting, Yeah because thats why we do things 16 years in.
The 91st Academy Awards, for which a new host has yet to be found, will air Sunday, Feb. 24 on ABC. What are your thoughts on DeGeneres and Harts upcoming sit-down? Will you be tuning in? Whatevers on your mind, drop it in a comment below.
Recently, CBS spent millions pimping a reality show starring Hart. Some sort of Ninja Warrior knock-off.
They promoted it for months.
Lasted about 4 episodes.
Hart ain’t funny. Or talented.
Neither is Degenerate. The immoral mafia in Hollywood have for too long tried to dictate what we should think, believe and watch. Nonsense. I do not watch this crap, I never will.
I think the order is Muslim, transgender, gay, black. But I’m not 100% sure.
The Thought Nazis can’t find anyone pure enough to host their Academy and need saint Ellen to give him absolution.
Kevin to Ellen: I love watching lesbians in the xxx movies I see on cable.........
First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out
Because I was not a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out
Because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for meand there was no one left to speak for me.
Did Kevin Hart speak out when conservatives were being targeted? Will he speak out in the future when the next conservative is targeted?
