"And I believe in Ellen", another social media user tweeted.
Now the talk show host is facing her own backlash for defending him during the interview, in which she encourages him to take up the presenting slot again.
DeGeneres said she called the Academy this week to urge that Hart be brought back, and was told that officials would be "thrilled" if he did. Not "I'm sorry people are so sensitive".
"I called them. I saidKevin's on, I have no idea if he wants to come back and host, but what are your thoughts?" "I think if you want to make it a teachable moment, go out there and make it a teachable moment".
In December, it was announced that Kevin Hart would be taking the helms of the Oscar hosting position making him the fourth Black comedian in history to hold that title.
Hart wrote so-called homophobic remarks on Twitter mostly between 2009-2011, including one where he said: "Yo if my son comes home & try's 2 play with my daughters doll house I'm going 2 break it over his head & say n my voice 'stop that's gay.'" It was later deleted.
While the 91st Academy Awards is still set to air on February 24th without any announcement of a host, the world is still fixated on the public fallout between the Academy and the host that should have been.
At the time, Hart also uploaded a video on Instagram in which he explained that the Academy demanded a public apology for his homophobic tweets, a public apology Hart initially didn't believe was necessary due to him addressing the controversy in the past.
The clips posted to DeGeneres' verified Twitter account did not include Hart's final decision. "I've apologized for it". I'm a guy that understands now.

"We have got to let go of people who have apologized", she said. You've already expressed that it's not being educated on the subject, not realizing how risky those words are, not realizing how many kids are killed for being gay or beaten up every day...
Hart told DeGeneres that he has apologized for his past words but that this was a tough incident for him because he felt it was a attack by "trolls" on his character and career.
