Kevin Hart Responds to 'Ellen' Backlash: 'We All Have the Ability to Grow'

By TheBlast Staff

Kevin Hart does not understand the volatile reaction he received after sitting down with Ellen DeGeneres to address his past homophobic remarks and the situation with hosting the Academy Awards.

Taking to Instagram on Saturday, the "The Upside" star asked," When did we get to the point where we forgot that we all learn, then we have the ability to grow and with that growth comes a wealth of knowledge."

Hart added, "You can't change without a understanding of what GROWTH means." The short-statured star included a photo naming professions, such as "Basketball players" and "Teachers," and pointing out they don't become great until they learn.

After Hart's appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," he was met with more criticism, including some who called the interview an "insult" to the LGBTQ community. Ellen, who hosted the Oscars in 2014, was also scrutinized for appearing sympathetic to the comedian.

Ellen defended the interview by explaining, "I believe in forgiveness. I believe in second chances."
