Should Kevin Hart be reconsidered as the 2019 Oscars host?

Kevin Hart backed out of hosting the Oscars after homophobic tweets he made resurfaced. Ellen DeGeneres is advocating for Hart to get his job back as host, but not everyone is welcoming Hart with open arms. Hart went on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" to explain himself, but LGBTQ people of color aren't buying what Hart is selling. They also say DeGeneres is not the spokesperson of the LGBTQ community and doesn't have the authority to excuse Hart's comments. Should the Oscars take him back?

Members of the Black LGBTQ community say Hart's apology was insincere. Some also say it wasn't DeGeneres' place to forgive Hart and that LGBTQ people of color were the ones singled out by the comments. Journalist George M. Johnson took to Twitter to share his thoughts. He says LGBTQ people of color cannot be spoken for by DeGeneres because they do not share the same experiences.
