Kevin Hart has once again issued an apology to the LGBTQ community for his old tweets which were labeled as homophobic.
He addressed the controversy on his own SiriusXM show, Straight to the Hart which aired Monday night.
"I will say this, and I want to make this very clear," Hart said. "Once again, Kevin Hart apologizes for his remarks that hurt members of the LGBTQ community. I apologize.
"Here is how it starts off. I want to say that I have no problem with gay people. I don’t have a homophobic bone in my body. I want you to be happy, be gay, be happy.' And then I say as a heterosexual male, if I can do something to stop my son … that’s where the joke starts!
"The only clip that I have seen all over the media is the one where I go, ‘stop! That’s gay.’"
"I really had to dive into the whole thing, even the tweets. These weren’t words that I said to gay individuals. I didn’t say these words to people, at the time, this was our dumb asses on Twitter going back and forth with each other. We thought it was okay to talk like that, because that’s how we talked to one another. In that, you go, f*ck! This is wrong now.”
"If the fight from the LGBTQ community is equality, that’s the fight," he said. "The fight is the will and want for equality. I’m riding with you guys. I understand you.
"But in the fight for equality, that means that there has to be an acceptance for change. If you don’t want to accept people for their change, then where are you trying to get to the equal part? Where does the equality part come in?"
The new apology comes amid news that the Oscars are considering offering Hart the opportunity to sign back on as the host.
