Ellen DeGeneres Seemingly Responds to Kevin Hart Interview Backlash

Ellen DeGeneres is facing some backlash for defending Kevin Hart and asking him to host the Oscars after stepping down due to resurfaced, homophobic tweets.

Among some of the things Ellen said in her interview with Kevin, she added, “As a gay person, I am sensitive to all of that. You’ve already expressed that it’s not being educated on the subject, not realizing how dangerous those words are, not realizing how many kids are killed for being gay or beaten up every day.”

Ellen also added, “You have grown, you have apologized, you are apologizing again right now. You’ve done it. Don’t let those people win — host the Oscars.”

“But for you to be the bigger man and to not pay attention — There are so many haters out there. Whatever is going on on the internet, don’t pay attention to them. That’s a small group of people being very, very loud,” she added.

Many took offense to Ellen‘s words, calling those offended by the homophobic tweets, “haters.” See what Ellen tweeted on Friday…
