He’s seemingly learning from his mistakes. Kevin Hart is continuing to find himself in the midst of a controversy involving the Academy Awards. Last month, Kevin stepped down from his gig as the host of the 2019 Oscars after multiple homophobic tweets and comments resurfaced online. Earlier this week, Kevin made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show where Ellen advocated for him to return as a host for the upcoming awards ceremony. Now, Kevin seems to be reflecting on this learning experience in an Instagram message to his followers.

Kevin, 39, shared a text post with an inspiring message, reminding his followers that doctors, teachers, basketball players, and a handful of other people who work in those professions aren’t just born automatically great at their job, but it’s something that they have to learn to do. Kevin added his own inspirational message in the caption.

“When did we get to the point where we forgot that we all learn, then we all have the ability to grow and with that growth comes a wealth of knowledge,” Keven wrote. “You can’t change without an understanding of what GROWTH means. #Message #LiveLoveLaugh #HappySaturday… Please grasp this and use it in 2019.”

Many fans took it as Kevin’s way of revealing that he’s learned from his past mistakes involving homophobic comments in the past. “And you can’t grow without making mistakes. In a world where no one is perfect, many tend to forget their own faults while pointing their fingers all around. @kevinhart4real you, my dear, are a gem,” one fan wrote, while another commented, “Do the Oscars… just do it.”

During his appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Ellen revealed that the Academy was hoping that Kevin would change his mind and come back as a host. “I believe in forgiveness. I believe in second chances. And I believe in @KevinHart4real,” the 60-year-old wrote in a caption of a video clip of their interview posted on Instagram.
