Kevin Hart wanted to apologize by “changing” following his homophobic tweet controversy.
The 39-year-old actor stepped down as the host of the Oscars when historic homophobic tweets he had written were resurfaced, and some members of the LGBTQ community were left angry when he didn’t apologize immediately for his comments.
But Kevin – who has since apologized twice – says he didn’t physically say the word “sorry” at first because he believed the “best way to say sorry” was through “never doing it again”.
When asked if he regretted how he handled the situation, the ‘Night School’ actor said: “The way that I handled it in the beginning was never from a place where I’m being negative or angry or playing victim. It was, ‘Hey, guys, I apologized about this. I talked about this years ago and I said I’ll never do it again.’ To me, that was the apology. The apology was never doing it again.”
And Kevin insists he spoke to several people within the LGBTQ community to understand how he should make amends, and hopes people now know he doesn’t have “any ill will toward anybody”.
