Twitter OUTRAGED At Ellen For Giving Kevin Hart A Pass — What Do YOU Think??

This is not a good look for Ellen DeGeneres right now — or is it?

The daytime TV queen brought on Kevin Hart Friday to give his side of the Oscars controversy — and explain why he wouldn’t give in to the ultimatum to apologize for past homophobic jokes.

Ellen not only forgave him, she revealed she’s called the Academy on his behalf to fight for his position.

Oh, and she called the people who spoke out against his words and his lack of contrition “haters.”

If you haven’t seen yet, here’s the ENTIRE conversation (below):

Ellen was not trying to hide her goal, straight up giving Kevin her blessing.

But a great many offended members of the LGBTQ community were not ready to forgive and forget.

See some of their very strong statements (below)!

OK, so now you’ve heard both sides.

We absolutely think people should be able to get a second chance and be forgiven for past words and deeds. People grow. People change.

But when people grow, shouldn’t they be willing to show contrition for all the awful things they said? To prove it isn’t who they are anymore?

A lot of people clearly just don’t think Kevin has done so yet.

So what do YOU think??
