Kevin Hart apologises again to the LGBTQ community over homophobic tweets

Kevin Hart has apologised once again to the LGBTQ community again over his decade-old homophobic tweets.

The comedian and actor made this known during his SiriusXM show Straight from the Hart. According to him, he is sorry for the comments credited to him in the past against the gay community.

“Once again, Kevin Hart apologizes for his remarks that hurt members of the LGBTQ community. I apologize,” he said. He went to talk about how there has to be an acceptance for any change to take place.

“I’m not debating right from wrong. I’ve already stated it’s wrong. But, the other side of it is this. If the fight from the LGBTQ community is equality, that’s the fight. The fight is the will and want for equality. I’m riding with you guys. I understand you,” he said.

It would be recalled that about a month ago, some of Kevin Harts old tweets resurfaced on social media where he was accused of being homophobic. The comedian then came out to say he was stepping down as the host of the Oscars because of the uproar the old tweets were getting.
