10:27 AM PT —  We’ve tried for 4 hours to contact the Motion Picture Academy to confirm the conversation Ellen recounted on her show — that the Academy still wants Kevin to host the Oscars. No one has responded to our emails or taken our calls.

10:06 AM PT — Ellen is now responding to the backlash, stating on social media, “However you feel about this, the only positive way through it is to talk about it. Thank you for being here, @KevinHart4real.”

Ellen DeGeneres is being skewered on social media for reducing the criticism of Kevin Hart‘s homophobic comments to an attack by a small group of internet haters.

Kevin Hart is appearing on Ellen’s show Friday, and DeGeneres launched a full-court attack on people who still have issues with Hart saying things like, “If my son comes home & try’s 2 play with my daughters doll house I’m going 2 breaks it over his head & say n my voice ‘stop that’s gay.'” Hart also said in one of his comedy specials, “One of my biggest fears is my son growing up and being gay.”

DeGeneres seemed to say the gay community is fine with Hart’s vague apology back in 2014 and his more recent post in 2018, in which he said, “I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past.”

DeGeneres and Hart dismissed the critics as trolls, and she then doubled down and said it was Kevin’s “right” to host the Oscars.
