    Take notes Jimmy Fallon. That's how a host should be when the guest are talking.

    Idiot this is different. The guys was making a statement, it wasn't not a dialogue until he concluded his point.

    +med momtez mahjoubi I don't always agree with her, but Ellen is a professional and a class act. Cannot stand interviewers who interrupt constantly.

    People are just too sensitive about everything these days. Going after a comedian for making a joke 10 years ago. Talk about intolerance from a community that preaches about tolerance all the time.

    She was being an adult about the situation and practicing patience, respect, and understanding, which is exactly what the LGBTQ+ want from others.

    "I don't know the perfect individual that society is now looking for." Exactly. This is insanity.

    It's because Americans are so used to being heard by the world, so a lot of them tend to be self-righteous. It's a good thing though bec it influences the world. But this is the extreme side effect of that: every American talking on all fronts without anyone listening. Non-Americans know how to listen first before speaking.

    The real question is: Does it REALLY Offend you?

    +Agent J To what end? Are we now supposed to apologize for every mistake we make in our youth? Its absurd.

    I think the Oscars need to apologise to Kevin Hart and the way they have dealt with this and treated him.

    if you reward people for feeling they are offended, they will become more and more offended for any reason.
