Seriously - he's not super funny and he basically refused to learn from his mistakes.

I’ve recently gotten into GMM. I know a lot of viewers are pre teens, but they make a lot of jokes I don’t think they’d understand lol. Also, I like throughly researched them and they haven’t said anything super bad. I saw their podcast where they re apologized for some video they made in the past. So I’m cool with them. They’d be hilarious though.

I agree that the context was different but I don't know what Billy is talking about, she was not using it as an affectionate term. Either way, it's not okay for her to say that and she should apologize.

I think the point is, is that she already has. Multiple times.
And has also learned about the mistakes she has made, whereas Kevin Hart clearly hasn't.

The screenshot above shows, Sarah points it about herself, that her reasoning back then, was wrong and she has apologized for years now. And as per the other screenshot, someone else has pointed out that she's practically gone through her previous joke history, and talked about why she wouldn't say it today.

I know that admitting a wrong, apologizing for it several times, and doing real life thing to be a better ally, isn't a big thing on ONTD, but I think that allowing people growth is an actual thing, and a good thing at that.

I didn't realize she apologized for it. That's good. I'm actually a big fan of hers.

And most of his tweets where he was using the slur weren't attempts at jokes at all.

After seeing this @benfraserlee tweet, I did a search for every time Kevin Hart tweeted "fag," "homo," or "gay." It was…a lot. And he seems to have basically stopped tweeting those words after 2011 - i.e. the year his first stand-up movie became a hit. https://t.co/P8nTOilFgx pic.twitter.com/6uzPhnvt4F

LMFAO of course these women are being defended. Of course.
