In the aftermath of the conversation, in which Hart revisited tweets posted on his account in the past and stressed his repeated attempts to apologise for them, Hart said that he was "evaluating" his decision to step down as host.

"When I was given that ultimatum, this is now becoming a cloud".

The report also describes the trouble the Academy has had in finding a replacement for the ceremony celebrating excellence in film, while also coming on the heels of Hart's appearance on The Ellen Show.

"Ellen did, in fact, call the Academy about reinstating Hart", the insider confirmed.

Ellen also added, "You have grown, you have apologized, you are apologizing again right now".

In the clips, Hart said he recognized that his comments on Twitter were risky and said he had apologized and grown in the 10 years since he made them.

"Comedians are some of the biggest risk-takers", Hart said. He initially refused to do so, saying that he had already apologised for his homophobic comments.

In the same video, he said: "The reason I chose to pass is because I've addressed this several times".

On December 7, Hart stepped down from hosting the Oscars and issued an apology on Twitter: "I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past".

"I know you are not that guy because I know you", she said.

In a Friday rant, Schneider, 55, defended his peers, tweeting "comics are the ones who are supposed to say the awful things we all think but don't". I don't want to hear a hostile retelling of how we didn't hear your meager apology the first time. The Oscars is no longer about Kevin Hart stepping on that stage and taking an intense night where people are so uptight and making it loose and fun. Once again, I'm sorry these words hurt.

After a show of support from fellow comedienne Ellen Degeneres, rumors began to circulate if Kevin Hart would set aside his differences with the Academy and host the Oscars anyway. Whatever is going on in the internet, don't pay attention to them. "To go through 40,000 tweets to get back to 2008?"

But Behar wasn't feeling it, saying she had a whole list of other people who could host the show - people like Adam Sandler, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Steve Martin - before comparing the situation to Brett Kavanaugh. "If he was asked back as host it would be because he has now done so". "I'm in a completely different space in my life". "And I would like to see him become the host of the Oscars and use the opportunity ... to become that ally". "That's why they haven't found another host".
