"Apologizing and moving on does not make the world a better place for people who are gay or people who are transgender, being an ally does," says CNN's @DonLemon, reacting to the Oscars' openness to Kevin Hart's return https://t.co/ITGU3Uj2ez pic.twitter.com/4u48sfBF0U— CNN Tonight (@CNNTonight) January 5, 2019
Backlash has been mounting against Ellen DeGeneres after her interview on Friday with Kevin Hart absolving him of his anti-gay history.
In a gripping segment on his CNN news show Friday night, anchor Don Lemon opened up as a member of both the Black and LGBTQ communities and called for a deeper response from comedian Kevin Hart in renewed controversy over his defunct Oscar hosting gig.
Many other publications in the entertainment and LGBTQ communities were disappointed in Ellen's tone deaf dismissal of Kevin's internet "haters."

“Ellen DeGeneres isn’t the queer savior everyone likes to think she is,” writes OUT director of culture & entertainment @TrevellAnderson, “and Kevin Hart has a lot more growing to do.” https://t.co/vatMeMSgqy— Out Magazine (@outmagazine) January 4, 2019
DeGeneres’ decision to offer Hart absolution on behalf of America’s gays is sickening. https://t.co/5VJUCRQPGI— Slate (@Slate) January 4, 2019
