Kevin Hart may be out of the Oscars – but he is still in the headlight.
One day after the comedian released his concert hosted by Hollywood’s night after his yearly homophobic tweets, critics and other celebrities continued to weigh into the controversy – and how he would have handled it.
“Kevin Hart is a comedian, the problem is that he is not kidding gay people. He has long been a problem with HBT comments and refuses to apologize and be allied. If he has developed so much, an excuse is not so hard, ” tweeted ” Queer Eye “star Jonathan Van Ness on Friday.
The comedian and actor late Thursday descended from hosting rebellion over his anti-gay tweets from years ago. Hart said that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences had asked him to apologize or quit ̵
1; and he did not want to apologize.
“The reason I passed [on the apology] is that I’ve treated this several times” he told the fans at Instagram. One hour later, he tweeted that he went down.
“I apologize to the LGBTQ Group for my insensitive words from my past,” he added.
But some said they were disappointed that Hart did not hold the concert and use it to lower the offensive jokes.
“Kevin Hart should not have gone down; he should have intensified,” tweeted Sarah Kate Ellis, president of HBT organization GLAAD.
“Hello apologies to LGBTQ people is an important step forward, but he lacked a real opportunity to use his platform and the Oscars scene to build unity and awareness.”
Others were left rolling eyes and said enough excuses .
Hart had so recently, as of 2015, been obliged to comment on his “insecurity”.
“How many times does he have to apologize, do you think?” Joy Behar from ABC’s “The View” asked Friday morning. “Or is he cooked?”
With the host’s hostess, they are worthy of “this kind of mob mentality as we see, these compulsions, you know, everyone hopes for the bandwagon, which does not allow people to evolve without allowing people to belong . “
Heart’s only comment Friday was a Martin Luther King Jr. quote.
“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands at the moment of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy” tweeted him .
