Don Lemon, Kevin Hart, Ellen DeGeneres

Kevin Hart once again apologized to the LGBT community for anti-gay jokes and tweets from a decade ago. The 39-year-old comedian pulled out of hosting the 2019 Academy Awards following the public backlash to his old tweets dating back to 2008 and 2009.

Hart initially rejected the Academy's demands to apologize, saying he's apologized multiple times already. But on Monday, Hart apologized again during a discussion on his SiriusXM radio show Straight from the Heart.

Speaking in the third person, the Night School star said, "Once again, Kevin Hart apologizes for his remarks that hurt members of the LGBTQ community."

But he affirmed that he still doesn't approve of his son growing up to be ghey.

Quoting one of his standup jokes, in which he said he would beat his son if he saw him playing with his sister's dollhouse, Hart paraphrased: "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!"

Acknowledging that times have changed, Hart said he regrets tweeting his thoughts on the microblogging website.

"These weren't words that I said to gay individuals. I didn’t say these words to [ghey] 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--k! This is wrong now."

The father of two sons and a daughter said he is willing to help Black people become more accepting of members of the LGBT community.

"I think that in the times that we’re living in, we have to be understanding and [be] accepting of people and change."

CNN anchorman Don Lemon, who is openly ghey, rebuked Hart for appearing on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on Friday. He accused Hart of insulting the LGBT community by portraying himself as a victim.

Ellen DeGeneres defended Hart during the episode, telling him to ignore "haters" in the LGBT community who seek to destroy his comedy career.

In a scathing commentary on his CNN show, Lemon, 52, condemned Hart's joke about his son. "That was a joke to Kevin. The truth is, that is a reality for many little boys in the United States. Somewhere a black dad is beating his black son."

Lemon went on to say how his friend, filmmaker Lee Daniels, was "thrown into a trash can" by his dad for being gay and claimed Hart needed to do more to challenge homophobia [in the Black community] before he is forgiven for his past remarks.

GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis told Deadline.com she reached out to Hart's camp multiple times, but has not gotten a response.

"Kevin Hart shouldn't have stepped down; he should have stepped up," said Ellis. "Hart's apology to LGBTQ people is an important step forward, but he missed a real opportunity to use his platform and the Oscars stage to build unity and awareness. We would still welcome that conversation with him."

Last week, a source told Variety magazine that Hart changed his mind about returning to the Oscars hosting gig. The Academy bosses expressed an interest in having him return. But Hart said hosting the Oscar Awards would be a distraction.

  • Kim’s Original Face

    Why does he keep apologizing ? he apologized once he should have kept it moving.

    Wait does he have a movie coming out?

  • Navybeans95

    There is nothing wrong with heterosexual people wanting their own kids to be the same way...this mess is getting ridiculous..

  • iWasteTime

    Yes. Friday. serious one

  • cherrypie

    This is ridiculous!!!! He bet NOT apologize no more!!!

  • Yardgirl

    OK now THIS makes sense. Hollyweird and their "any publicity is good publicity" sheesh! We get it you are sorry and you are not going to host. Let.It.Go.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    So things not right untill more and more black men filled with aids and taking it in the rear

  • http://yourpushfactor.com/ Sheila Makena

    As a gay person, I completely agree. It's what you want for your child and I personally respect that. My hope is that if this same child tells you that he/she is gay, that you will not "throw him in a trash can".

  • Bossy704

    Most black comedians that I've seen poke fun at homosexuals and I've never found it offensive. Think of Damon Wayans and David Allan Grier. Was In Living Color offensive? The real issue is Kevin is not a comedian. He is a slap stick actor - so when you ask him to write jokes that is not a skillset he possesses. Let's have realistic expectations. Host the show Kevin. You know you want to.

  • Ryan

    This is overkill, and I don't even like Kevin Hart's comedy.

    Also, Ellen is one damned ugly woman.

  • speakinmymind

    Exactly. Gays are the biggest bullies. He doesn't need to apologize anymore or even speak on it further.

  • Jethro

    No preview of Benedict Donald's lie fest tonight? ?

  • Jethro

    Hey, it worked for R. Kelly. ????

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    I dont think he's funny but full stop on this apologizing. My children and are accepting of anyone loving who they love, but my Mommy it's a no on her end and that's her preference and so is Kevin's or anyone else.

  • Lovely1

    Stop trying to change people's opinions. He is who he is!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    The problem with Hart is that children are free to be whoever they are and shouldn't be given conditional love by their parents but unconditional love.
    Parents are the ones who owe the child since the child didn't ask to be in this world.
    What do parents owe their children? Unconditional love is the most important thing.
    But it's obvious that Hart didn't get the love he wanted or needed from his parent so he does have a warped view of the parent/child relationship.

    I feel so bad for his son.. Even if his son did turn out Gay all of this extra and unnecessary comments his own Father has said will set him back. This is why so many men and women decide to stay Down low. He needs to apologize to his son not the Internet trolls..

    Look! Stay strong...

  • LeeSeeCee

    I. Don't. Care. How many times is this going to be brought up? I am by no means a KH stan, but, DAMN. He said what he said. He has apologized umpteen million times. Whether it is sincere or not, again, I just don't have any fu*ks to give. There are far WORSE behaviors with the folks running our country and people chose to focus on this sh*t?? GMAFB..

    Why is he continuously apologizing? Didn't he say he wouldn't apologize again after the last 3 apologies? He should have just hit'em with the "I SAID WHAT I SAID" and left it at that. He's annoying asf, the lgbtqrstuv community is annoying asf. Everybody have a f*king seat and stfu!!!

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Let's play a game, by a show of hands who is eager to bring up a black gay man in this society? It's difficult enough to be a black male.

    Take EJ for example, he cant post one pic without getting dragged. If Auntie post a pic of EJ right now, I bet 95% of yall will drag him at some capacity.

    Furthermore, let's stop pretending that black gay men are happily gay black men!

    THIS!
    he can express his preference for his child. it seems that someone CHOSE to take his words literally in order to claim that him saying he'd 'beat his son' for playing with a dollhouse, was somehow in support of little gay boys everywhere being justifiably beaten. but, like him or not, if you're familiar with his stand-up, you're probably not gonna take his words seriously.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I agree. If Kevin's son announced he was gay, I believe Kevin would accept him.

  • BingBangBoom

    This is why Queen Latifah keeps the trolls out of her business.. We all know what it is but yet she doesn't spill her tea.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    The problem is internalizing and projecting. Folks internalize too damn much then project their bullchit on to others. STFU Don LOL.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    that's why i say this 'protest' against Kevin specifically is a bit disingenuous because the offended parties couldn't have heard or read this one'joke' without also hearing or reading how much Kevin dotes on his son... he's constantly talking about those kids and how his "lil man' is his best friend,etc.
    the way he carries on about those kids, he'd fight the first dude who tried to bully his gay kid (might not win, but he'd fight) LOL

  • Anunnaki, in A twilight Zone

    Yep To those who choose to entertain them.

  • Decked Out

    THEY do to MoFo MUCH. So wanting to be STRAIGHT now is a MoFo CRIME?

    BTW we all know who RUN Hollyweird anyway. LGBT are Bullies and have DEEEEEP Pockets. And they call it their "Civil Rights" but they can be RACIST as a MoFo.

  • Sid

    After these fools compared being gay to slavery. I have wiped my hands clean. Everyone is not going to accept you and that’s life.

  • VernadineTheQueen?

    So people can’t say they don’t want a gay child now? I got 2 daughters and I would not want them to be gay. Having a gay son it would be heartbreaking also!!

  • Mark mcharm

    This is what they do they can't string you and beat you like Kunta kinte so they make you keep apologizing until they break you.

  • Kimocha

    OMG!... I wish they would stop talking about this already and just let it go!... Why does he have to keep apologizing over and over again!... Just Stop!... Damn!

  • Itzgoingdown2

    Gay and Jews control Hollyweird. They try to break anyone who publicly disagrees with and or questions them. It's about power and control

    He's Black and insulted "those" people ??.

  • HRH_DORIT

    Well his career is dead, back to black hood comedies

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    Nope!! 1 apology (maybe) that's all you get. If I say sorry the first time and you don't accept it that's on you, not gonna keep saying it.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames
  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    The fact that he keeps apologizing means the pressure from the influential members of the LGBT community is intense. They will not lift their boots from his neck until he says he approves of his son being ghey.

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    And that's all well and good, but he's said sorry seriously like 55 times already and he pulled out of hosting. Why keep bringing it up? Like let it go you said you were done so be that. Impress me and apologize for not being funny since "SAY IT WIT YO CHEST"

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I think he's worried about how this might affect his career moving forward. Gays have a lot of influence in Hollywood, so he's probably nervous about how this will affect his coins.

  • Itzgoingdown2

    CNN's LaDonna (Don) Lemon has no BLACK AGENDA. No heterosexual black man or BLACK WOMAN would still have a show if they had LaDonna's putrid low ratings. He's not on the air because he's black. He's on the air because he's GAY and to promote and push an EXTREMIST liberal, homosexual agenda and to keep blacks mentally paralyzed with emotional bullchit to limit INDEPENDENT, CRITICAL BLACK THOUGHT.

    I’ve been warning you all about these LaDonna (Don) Lemon, BLM Black Gays that White liberals are propping up and financing as the new black spokesmen and NEW LEADERS OF BLACKS. They gas blacks up 24/7 Pretending to be black militants on some fight the power, fight racism bullchit. However, they’ll always show their true colors and true intentions whenever the point is made that white liberals are a part of and help enable systemic racism. Watch how quickly they’ll flip and Start deflecting saying Blacks are doing great! We’ve made so much progress.... everything is wonderful! Just sit back and watch and observe their fvckery whenever white liberals and or homosexuality is challenged and questioned. Black blogs and black Twitter is infested with these girlymen agents and infiltrators.

  • Jay

    I'm really over this story. He said what he said. I didn't see anything wrong with with what he said nor should anyone else. That's what HE WANTS FOR HIS FAMILY. If he has to continue to apologize for that then an apology isn't what they want.

  • Cujaneer

    So they want him to lie?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Wrong, but the saddest part of this is in the follow-up interview several years after the initial tweets is that Kevin said it was more about how it would reflect on him as a father..
    So basically he didn't want his son to be gay because he was worried that other people would judge him.
    This is why black people are so far behind--we care too much what other people think about us and they ain't paying anyone else's bills.

  • HRH_DORIT

    Let's be honest Sandra no one cares if his son is gay its the inference of violence on his part towards a child that is disturbing

  • http://www.legalizemelanin.com Legalize Melanin

    MySpace is back?

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Well no parent wants their child to be gay. A lot of bad comes with being gay, so I understand. I can just do without all the name calling, hit your son with the dollhouse, etc.

    If a father wants to use his energy to stop (insert laugh here) his son from being gay, go for it. He shouldn't be pressured to keep apologizing or forced into 'wanting' a gay son. Gay Mafia: Kevin's son is school age so cut ish. Anyone thinks what he's enduring from cruel lil ugly kids at school since all this came out? Drop it please.

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    Im tryna tell you!!! They can't tell that man what to accept from HIS SON. That's his son... his household. Who TF do they think they are. My career would be over cuz I woulda been told them people to suck my d*k!! in real life. They ain't nothing but some bullies who want everybody to be accepting of their way of life. But when it's flipped and someone is telling them about the heterosexual way of life then they are offended. FOH!! Miss me yo!!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    That's not parenting.

    Parents wanting x,y, or z for their child is selfish.
    All parents should want to do is love their children unconditionally and want them to be healthy and happy and not want them to be like dad or mom or a famous star.

  • FukkFolks2019

    AND this statement from 2 flights down applies to this VERY situation:

    But know when WE (people of melanin) raise our hands to get certain high profile gigs,That THEY (mayo people of LESS melanin or whatever group it PERTAINS TO) WILL be digging up every damn piece of dirt you have ever HAD in your LIFE. So be ready. KEVIN'S team wasnt ready. Had to issue an additional statement etc. HE may as well issue an apology to every GAY he has worked with. Make sure that nobody bullied anyone and so on and so forth.

    SEE what I did there?

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    CNN's Don Lemon already said he wants to see Kevin "be an ally" of the gay community. Probably not gonna happen... but clearly some of the gaynazis are trying to milk this situation for alll they can get out of it.

  • kennedy220

    she doesn't have to spill it lol sandra will pour it for us

    I remember my old boss was MAD bc I REFUSED to give my personal cell phone number. This MY phone. I am not obligated to give you this number. Same thing. THATS his son. He is not obligated to raise him different. People are a whole trip

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Kevin said in a follow-up interview a couple of years later that he didn't want a gay son because it would reflect badly on him and he would wonder what he did wrong.

    That's the problem with black people we care too much about what other people think.

    It's called "Buck Breaking". G00gle it. Been going on since the first black man set foot on this continent.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    It was a joke, period. Most people took it that way. The man is a comedian... that's what they do. Maybe it was a tasteless joke, but I think most people understood it was just a joke. I dont think the man would seriously decide to hurt his own son if he told him he was gay.

  • kennedy220

    i'm on the fence about it...i want comedians to be able to continue to joke as they have always. they always go into those controversial zones. i honestly love seeing them make fun of gays, whites, blacks, asians, str8s..if it was even playing field we probably wouldn't even be having this conversation. as a gay black male i do understand where don is coming from. what was don to lee daniels as a child sucks and there will always be parents like his out there no matter how inclusive we become in life and tv. racism and homophobia will never go away no matter the agenda presented on tv or any medium . at least not in our life time imo

  • Renee26

    As a parent of a gay child the fear of public judgement for ME wasn't of people knowing he was gay it was not wanting him to experience the hate and discrimination that comes along with being out. I used to tell him to not adapt feminine ways to attract attention to his sexuality that way people wouldn't be able to look at him and tell... My son took it as a personal attack and said I don't fully accept and love him cause I want him to be a "trade". SMH I can't take back my words and it's a gamble if he will ever feel my unconditional love for him based on those comments.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™
  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Isn't is "gayness" portrayed in his fashion?
    As unapologetic as he is, he is a double minority (black and gay) and for Kevin it's about acceptance. No one wants their child to not be accepted in schools, society or our very own communities. Who wants to go through that? Could you imagine waking up in the morning and not being able to be who you are bc society wont accept you? Who wants that for themselves, let alone their children...

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Well in that respect, stand your ground Kevin. I can separate people being OK with gays, but don't want that for their own kids. I get it.

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    But he has to take a stand for what he believes in. He did it at first and then back tracked. NO, if you don't want your son to be gay, stand behind that shyt!!! I don't believe it will stop him from loving his son and that's not what he's implying. But he has a right to feel that way...the same way they want the right to be able to marry and have families without someone else trying to tell them how to live their lives. It's the same thing. How they gon try to tell him how to live his? *Kanyeshrug*

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    S***? You rang?

  • TMW

    I still don’t really understand this. Is the LGBTQ community really upset because Kevin Hart doesn’t want his son to be gay? If so, WHY THOUGH?

    No matter how acceptable being gay has become in society, gay people in their everyday lives still face a lot of hate, bullying and discrimination. Why is it wrong for parents not to want their child to endure any type of hardship?

    I will never choose for my child to be gay. But that doesn’t mean that if she is, I won’t accept and love her and support her choices. Like the comfort of your skin, I don’t think you can change who you love.

    I can’t stand the tiny man, but this time I really don’t understand the issue.

  • hi-liter

    Kevin handled this whole thing backwards as Hell. If he gonna keep apologizing, he shoulda just did that the first time and STILL hosted the Oscars ceremony. Now he just out here apologizing over and over again for what? Ain’t nothing to get out the situation at this point.

  • HRH_DORIT

    About adults not children

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Yep, sure is. They've been speculating til no end about what that lady sleeps with. She still will not give in.

  • Coy little wink

    Idk...I just know EJ is an extreme example and I'm not sure he is gay he is transgender I think.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    yes. my thing was him practically saying he'd beat the gay outta the son.

    I don't think any parent wants a gay son. A lot of parents are coming around to accepting it, but that still doesn't mean they agree with it or want it for their son.

  • Peace

    Them gay demons want that boy. They had his mom Torrei on one of them night mags access Hollywood or something crying saying kevin would accept him if he was gay. It's a real Man@Kevin Hart to stand for what he believes is right. Just look at the headlines coming out of Hollywood. White man killing black gay me. Keep it moving Kevin. Protect your seed Bro

  • TMW

    Ok, missed the “beat the ghey out part.” He’a ignorant.

  • Applebum

    Blacks don’t have any powers in this country. No matter how rich you are, they can always make you fold and bow down. Kevin is nothing but a paid puppet. People are so obsessed with money and fame, they’ll do just about anything to get it. Pathetic!

  • Dun Dilly

    KEV just "playing the game" right. He has a movie OPENING this weekend. I'm sure he had to think about the producers of that film and chose to take the heat off to ensure box office success. He played them at their own bitchazz game. Kev for the win.

  • Allergic2dumbstuff

    Lerd, I'm sooooo tired of this topic. I keep asking. "How long will or how often is Kevin going to have to apologize? And why? Will it be until he's YT in the face or 'til he turns ghey his darn self? This horse has been beaten to defisis.

  • HRH_DORIT

    Yes but the people who write his checks did she something wrong.

  • Phillybruh

    This is the first and hopefully the last apology.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    They need to leave him alone already. I haven't been a fan of his for a couple of years now but that doesn't mean I think he should keep apologizing over a joke he made.

  • Phillybruh

    Kev has other movies that he wants to be in and they started looking at other little black actors so he finally offered up an apology.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    Yeah this indicates he'd 'blame' himself. Still doesn't suggest he'd actually punish his child.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Right?! There have been many times I've said to my kids "I will beat the brakes off ya a**" and we laughed about it and I didn't touch them. Kev seems to love his kids a lot so I personally don't think he would disown his son "if" he ever came out as gay. Hurt? Yeah, but not to the point where he would lay hands on him or disown him.

  • Phillybruh

    I don't think anyone wants him to say that, but maybe if he is, I'm not going to beat it out of him.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    But you're blaming the victim by telling him not to act a certain way so as NOT to attract attention.
    That's like saying a woman asked for being raped because she was wearing a short dress.
    People need to mind their own damn business.
    I remember this guy who's Hispanic and he grew up in NYC and his mother was from homophobic Dominican Republican.
    He got beat up because other kids labeled him as gay so his mom asked her family what to do.

    Well she sent him to one of those reparative therapy places and they literally gave him electroshock treatment.
    He is now openly gay and a makeup artist and he's making much money and taking care of his mom.
    She's lucky because I don't know if I were him that I would be able to forgive her for basically blaming him for being a victim of other people's hate.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    The point is that a lot of gay people have experience violence from parents and others and that's why his joke struck such a raw nerve.

  • Sushi

    Ok so I am so over this......I was the same way when someone asked me how would I feel if my brother turned out to be gay, and I said, I would be hurt and I would not like it.... Why they asked because if you are like me, I knew at 5 that I was attracted to boys, I just always knew, and it is not easy being who you really are when society tells you it is wrong.....PLEASE let this go.... It is tired......

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    see Renee, the way you articulated it leaves NO room for misinterpretation. unfortunately, Kevin was not as eloquent AND he was attempting to be 'funny' ...now that attempt at humor has landed him in a fight he was unprepared for, unfortunately.

    Ellen knows it took for people to understand that no one should be discriminated against for their sexuality. She had a successful show and was canceled when she came out After LGBTQ awareness she is back and lots of people love her. So I'm sure many entertainers have learned about acceptance from 10 years ago.

    clearly his joke triggered Some folks because they recalled how their own parents may have rejected them when they 'came out' to them.
    so now they're projecting that pent-up anger from years ago onto Kevin because they couldn't unleash on their own parents at the time they rejected them.

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    ALL LIES!!! I'm a true Taurus and once I say it's done, it's done (which sometime comes back to bite me in the azz, but it is what it it) I'm walking off set like F*k u, F*k u, F*k u, you cool, and F*k you!!!! Like I said you get one apology, take it or leave it! I don't know how to grovel and I don't kiss azz

  • Phillybruh

    He's just not good at those kinds of jokes, it just wasn't funny. Chapple or Tracy Morgan could have landed the punchline.

    OMG DWL!! Theee onliest reason I don't fuss at my husband for us still having a house phone. Here ya go this mah number :-))

    You say that online, but let them start messing with the 20 million from the backend your supposed to make off that movie.

    yep, that's pretty much it... it just fell short (no pun) LOL!

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    Philly chill...you don't know me. I've been in plenty situations where all I had to do was bend and I wasn't going. This would be even more in effect if it were to come down to me saying I don't want my son to be gay! I just so happen to have a son and I DO NOT WANT HIM TO BE GAY when he comes into his sexuality. I would love him still and accept any choice he makes because he's my son and no one loves him like I DO!! However, if I stood to gain $20 million dollars just to say "Oh I would love for my son to be gay as an adult" I would just be out of $20 million dollars. I'm saying it online offline byline however!!

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    yeah, i get that too. i just said the same in another reply... it triggered Some people who may have experience rejection from parents. i just don't see it as an INTENTIONAL 'dog whistle' for gay bashers to get to bashin' https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9c5524b933f3a29872256af8b9d30b4c9ec5914b980fdc0a0817cbbe688aa153.gif

    Just because you don't like something doesn't mean you would actually discriminate against or harm another person.
    He's discussed his point and apologized.
    I don't even like Kermit but think folk should let him of the hook now. Find another host.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Huh?
    Really?
    He said that white men are a threat and that Trump is racist?
    What does Don have to say to have his black card validated?

  • Phillybruh

    But that's not what they asked him to do. He said he would beat the gay out of his son and then passed it off as a joke. I'm gay and a father of two boys and the last thing I want for either of them is too be gay, sure when it will be easier for them then it was for me and my partner. But I still don't want it for them. But if they were, beating it out of them is never part of the equation, he's not apologizing for not wanting his son to be gay, but he is apologizing for it coming off as so wrong too him that he would resort to beating him with the dollhouse that he caught him playing with.

  • Itzgoingdown2

    So many kids of Famous blacks coming out ghey that I suspect those kids are being targeted at a very young age. jmo

  • Candance

    This is so wack on so many levels. Kevin Hart quit apologizing 100 times. Do you and live your life! Let those people who want to be mad be mad but please dont start a platform to bring awareness to the black community we are all aware!

  • Reina1718

    Im tired of Kevin Hart ?????

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    I’m so sorry ? mmmm don’t like the way you said it so do it again . I apologize ? Nerp didn’t like that one either I need moooore emotion more sincerity. Ooookkkkk I’m sorry for 2004 (Rubin studdard voice) Nawl still didn’t like it????? Like wtf the LGBTQXYZ ELLA MENA P community starting to come off as bullies and they need to be called out for it at this point. They are bulling and harassing heterosexual ppl who don’t agree with their lifestyle there is a difference in a person not agreeing with something and a person being nasty and mean about it. Until ppl start calling this out the bulling will get out of hand and continue into forms of discrimination and abuse this is unacceptable.

  • Phillybruh

    They told him to say it with chest and he did just that!

  • DroneRivers

    wtf! This dead horse has been beat to smithereens!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    LOL. Intentional or not it struck a nerve and it's a widespread attitude throughout the black community.

  • Thanos of Titans

    I'm gay, and at first I felt a certain kind of way when Kevin refused to apologize...but he has now apologized multiple times since his tweets have come to light again. After hearing his latest apology...i feel like I can hear the remorse in his voice. It seems like a humbling experience for him and I hope he is able to recover from this.

  • Phillybruh

    The threat of Little Duval as a potential replacement can humble a negro...lol

  • Thanos of Titans

    lmao

  • Youcan’tbanmesucka

    Kevin needs to stop right now!!! He doesn't owe them shit. No more apologies Kev, fuck'em..

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    I know you're a Gay man, I know you have children, you've said this multiple times on this very blog. Just like I know why they want him to apologize for saying he would hit his son with a dollhouse. IT WAS A JOKE. He was doing stand up comedy and the punchline was...If Gay America can't take a joke then that's on them. They laugh and joke about everything else. Had it been a white man making jokes about black people it would have been hilarious.
    Now with that being said even if he did apologize for saying, what difference would it make? Is he the one to change the black man's perceptions/views about gays? Will his apology be the driving force behind black men in America accepting their gay sons? Will the lgbtq community breathe a sigh of relief because they got one Black man out of 100 million to apologize? #questionsthatneedanswers

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    the attitude yes, but i don't think the actual violent response is as widespread as it used to be. sure, you still have pockets of ignorance, but even 'the black church' is starting to come around. and, with the increasing number of --BTQxxxx in 'the community' most folks that EYE know, barely blink at regular ol' LG folk. I think the 'trans' members get the more violent end of the stick because people 'claim' they were tricked a lot of times.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    i should have added "until recently"

  • Phillybruh

    But thing it, it wasn't stand up. It was a tweet that he tried to pass off as a joke, he doesn't write his own jokes. I've seen Chappelle tell some of the funniest jokes about Gay people and I wasn't offended, I wasn't even offended by this. Except, everyone kept pointing to this apology that never existed, Don Lemon pulled the tapes the other night, he never apologized until he was going to lose the Oscar gig and even then it was half azz. I don't know if he will be a driving force, but its a start. There a lot of black fathers who love their sons for exactly who they are and there are some who can't love because they worried about how it makes them look.

  • rockstar2142

    Kevin you owe these folks no apologies. You have every right to feel how you feel. Just say f them folks and keep it moving!!

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    He did it in his stand-up routine too. It was a joke and he shouldn't have to apologize profusely for making a joke bad or good. I CANNOT STAND KEVIN HART but If you don't find it funny don't laugh. But then don't get mad cuz everybody else is laughing and you're not in on it cuz you wanna be sensitive when it suits you!! Gays want the right to be married they want the right to adopt they want the right to dress how they want to dress. Well straights want the right to not be with the shyts if we don't want to be!!! #periodt

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    I'm done with this shyt! #movingon

  • supastar

    Can this go away!

  • Phillybruh

    Who said yall had to be with the shytz...lol In the same breath I just don't get how folks just wanting to live bothers yall so much.

  • Phillybruh

    I figured this has one more leg until his movie comes out next week and out of sympathy black folks go see it. That's why he drummed it up again.

  • Mz_Opinionated

    I was thinking the same thing. Like...it's enough now. Seriously...

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    NOOOOOOOO!!!!!! You don't get to say thaaaaaat!!!!!! Cuz that's what we're saying!!!! He just wants to live!!!! And LGBTABCD wants him to be witht the shyt and apologize every time they think about what he said!!!!!! And who tf is bothered by ya'll wanting to live. NO ONE REALY CARES that much. Like our government is shut down, we have f*king idiot occupying the white house, the ozone layer has a hole in it!!!! There is so much more to be concerned with beside this shit right here!!!! TF!!!! Ayee Stop! I'm done

  • Mz_Opinionated

    Great way to put it! LOL!

  • Applebootay

    Nope, nope and nope again. iTs 2019 new topic please...

  • Phillybruh

    Who saying he can't live? He can't and shouldn't be making jokes about beating the gay out of his kid with a doll house. And the sad part is that doesn't even say that the kid is gay just that he's playing with a dollhouse. LOL black folks don't care about any of the shit you mentioned before the gay agenda. Yall will die on that sword no matter what else is going on.

  • Mz_Opinionated

    LOL!!!! I don't care for him either. And it's so sad! He tried it...

  • TheOwley

    I just wish people had balls and stand by their convictions. Have tolerance for LGBT people whilst wishing them safety, but if you do not accept it, then let it be so. That's your soul and your truth. You don't sell that to anyone. It's worth more than money, power, fame. Enough is enough. Is every comedian going to apologize for previous material. Now they are attacking Seinfeld FFS. LGBT needs to stop acting like the new gestapo.

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    Yes he can. Cuz he's a grown ass man with the rights to say and do what he wants within the limits of the law. But leave it to the Gays to say there needs to be a law outlawing gay jokes. But I digress. You're being a bully at right now and you don't even see it. And don't come at me with the....I can't be the bully cuz I'm gay...not gonna work. You're being a bully about this situation and you're being a bully toward me right now. Guess what? I said what I said. He shouldnt keep apologizing and please don't make me block you cuz I actually like conversing with you on the blog.

  • Phillybruh

    Well then he can say it but if he wants to continue to be in movies produced by gay people in some cases then he apologized.

  • SunRiseBlossom

    My only concern about this topic is why did Kevin even "have" to apologize?! If the man do not want his son to be gay, where is the problem? That is his child and his personal right to feel how he feel #smh

  • iWasteTime

    In this post, yes ...

  • A D N

    His opinion no matter how wrong...still his opinion.

  • A D N

    Ghey or not, I want my child here on earth for me to love, so Kevin's platform on the issue alongside his stardom can cause a child to question life or death. Although I do not believe in the lifestyle, I will make sure not to offend or cause harm with my words regarding the lifestyle. Children, confused or born that way, are taking their lives, acting out in school and communities because they are embarrassed or harassed and bullied, running away from home in fear of parental backlash. Yes, he has a right to his thoughts on his own child, but his also has to be aware of his influence on the public as well. Afterall, isn't that why he endorses products?

  • Shira Harding-James

    That’s the thing....
    We as Parents should be way more engaged becoming heroes to our kids and not let Hollyweird be their influceners

  • Shira Harding-James

    Right I’m not apologizing for how I choose to parent my children

  • Myopinion

    To me all his jokes fall short(no pun) lol. He's not a good comedian to me, but I do innerstand what he means.

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    Ok Philly he apologized and that should be it. Can we agree on that. He shouldn't have to apologize every time it's time to do a movie. Can we agree on that? And no it's not that you called me out of my name, I just felt like you kept coming even after I said I was done. I wouldn't expect you to be sleepless over a blocking Hon! This is just one we will have to agree to disagree on. :=)

  • A D N

    No man can top my dad. Hard worker, love his girls, spent quality time every weekend with us, took us to the movies, ate dinner at the table with us every night. When mom became ill, he combed our hair, tried to prepare boiled chicken and poured BBQ sauce over it in our plates LOL. (We didn't eat it lol). But when Michael Jackson hit the scene...my goodness...just magical lol. Michael influenced the way I thought...I switched from Coke to Pepsi, the way I dressed...bought the red zipper jacket and the glove...the way I danced...moonwalked. Yes, outsiders have influence. That's just life because our parents can not provide everything a child needs or desires.

  • Dun Dilly

    Yeah, I'm NOT mad. He held back that apology long enough that WE ALL know that this recent one is meaningless. Get your bread Kevi Kev. FK EM!

  • Phillybruh

    Nah this one actually meant the most, because they played with him long enough and almost stopped his bread.

  • jayhawkpride

    As a gay person, do you find it wrong or offensive that he wants his son to be a heterosexual?

  • A D N

    The difference is once a black male child is here, we have a strong influence on how the child reacts to he being ghey. Ghey children are often suicidal. Our words can be distorted as bullying.

  • http://yourpushfactor.com/ Sheila Makena

    A parent wants their child to live as conflict-less a life as possible. As unrealistic as this may be, I completely understand a heterosexual parent wanting their child to be heterosexuals as well. It's not easy being a child knowing that you're attracted to the same sex as you. It's terrifying. I imagine a parent would never want their children to go through that. I speak from my own perspective.

  • lovelygamour

    Leave african-americans outta this. Kevin heart who left his first wife cause she was too dark doesnt speak for me. Don lemon doesnt care about black people either. This is a ghey issue not a black one. Plenty of white parents run their ghey kids off. Leave us alone.

    Where is the outrage from all these individuals when a Big Time democrat donor, Ed Buck, keeps coming up with dead black gay men in his home. How is this not news. Where is the advocacy for these men that keep ending up dead. Where is Don Lemon who doesn't like white men but is about to marry one. It's this faux outrage that should motivate people to tell all these people to FO.

  • Renee26

    I've heard Jonathan tell his story and it was tragic.
    I don't see my comments as shaming him. I'm saying carry yourself in a manner that shows you are a man cause it's not necessary to mimic women's way of dress and mannerisms just because you're gay. Your sexuality should be private cause it's nobody's business what you do in your private life. Not every gay man has to be finger snapping and flamboyant and those who aren't necessarily on the DL or in denial about being gay. His peers put pressure on him to be flamboyant and I ain't with it. When his female friends call him girl or sis I check those bihs...he's a male and they need to respect that and stop trying to emasculate him.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

  • Li-Wright

    It's totally admissible and allowable for Kevin to NOT WANT HIS CHILD TO BE GAY. What's wrong with that? Most parents are devastated when they have a gay child. If you don't believe me, watch and see how many FATHERS divorce or leave the home when they find out their son (or dau) is gay. Especially the men.

    "People who should be able to be who they are and if it makes someone else uncomfortable then that's their problem."

    I agree... and I have trans and flamboyant gay males in my life too and I would never practice ill treatment on them. To each their own.

    I want him to be true to himself and not try to fit into the narrative of what society typically expects from gay males...for them to take on feminine traits.

    By the way Ion like loud and obnoxious personalities in either males or females... It irks my nerves so I wouldn't hang out with that type of person gay or straight.

    Being gay is only complicated because of bigots!!

  • the guest

    They want his position replaced with a white gay comedian. They are targeting Kevin to serve their agenda.

  • the guest

    Nobody wants their kids to be gay and the only people who intentionally raise their children to be gay are Cherlize Teron, Angelina Jolie, the owner at J Crew, Gwen Stefani, and the parents of that eight year drag queen the media has made a side show out of.

    The gay movenment has no right over the personal values and aspirations of parents. The gay movement is walking a fine line into McCarthyism. The gay movement is taking part in historic racist scrutinizing of black parenting with the racist inference that whites are authorities on parenting.

    Kevin married both mothers of his children, he loves and takes care of his children. He does not abuse his children. This is the extent of his accountability to the law. He does not have to want this children to be gay.

    What I want to know is why the white Christian Right will be all over every other cause but why are they not defending Kevin Hart’s right to a standard Christian belief? Look at the hypocrisy there....

    They made sure that white marriage clerk kept her job. They made sure the white bakery owner didn’t have to go against his values to make gay wedding cakes. They made sure the Duck Dynasty Family didn’t gave backtrack and apologize for not supporting gay rights.

    BECAUSE there is an overall white society agenda to emasculate black boys and black men as means of population control. This is WAY bigger than the Oscars and Kevin needs to say so but he’s scared of politics and desperate for Hollywood acceptance.

  • the guest

    Speak!!!!
