This after Hart pleaded on social media over the weekend for understanding after his appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show on Friday stirred up a second wave of criticism over the idea of his hosting the February 24 Oscar gala.

Kevin Hart's drama over hosting the Academy Awards deserves its own Oscar for all the high-octane shenanigans. One insider close to the production said Hart himself would have to approach them with willingness to return, while another said AMPAS is still waiting for Hart to have a "meaningful" conversation about his old tweets ("Ellen", alas, was not it).

The 39-year-old played up his Monday night episode on Twitter as "unreal" and "one that you do not want to miss". People have pointed out that they haven't been able to find any of the apologies.

"I said I would much rather step down and apologize again", Hart told DeGeneres this week.

"But in the fight for equality, that means that there has to be an acceptance for change".

DeGeneres said that "as a gay person", she had been "sensitive" to the comedian's homophobic remarks but believed he had "grown".

Others, however, were upset with what was viewed as an "attempt to speak for the LGBTQ community as a whole".

The comedian and actor chose to step down from hosting next month's ceremony following an online backlash over a series of homophobic tweets he posted 10 years ago. You've done it. Don't let those people win.

In an Instagram post, the Get Hard star asked for the opportunity to learn from his comments and emphasized the importance of "growth" from past mistakes. Please grasp this and use it in 2019. "They have to LEARN and develop to be great at their job".

Meanwhile, the Academy appears to be planning an Oscarcast devoid of a host and will instead will enlist some of the biggest A and B-listers to present awards.

The apology comes on the heels of Hart's raw interview with Ellen DeGeneres, which aired Friday.

He echoed those sentiments on his radio show: 'I think that in the times that we're living in, we have to be understanding and accepting of people and change.

Deadline.com reports, "Hart felt his hosting would become a distraction, a continuing controversial narrative that would take the spotlight off the people and movies being honored".
