No one should be judged by what the tweet when they're 17 years old. Hader owned up to his mistakes and deserves to know that the fans support him. The standing ovation was appropriate.

Did Hader return from war? Was he a victim who recovered from a traumatic event? Did he achieve something great? No. Hader apologized for being racist and homophobic. That doesn't deserve a standing ovation, which is an honor reserved for real heroes.
