“If The Academy Awards doesn’t do this then they should be shunned by every comedian,” Schnieder, 55, said on Los Angeles news outlet KTLA. “If he doesn’t host the Oscars, then the Oscars is a shameful organization.”
“I think the Academy Awards is just such a sucky ‘blow with the wind’ organization and they’ve always been that way … It’s all promotion,” he added.
Hart stepped down from hosting the February award show after some homophobic tweets of his from as early as 2008 resurfaced.
Schnieder, who was promoting his Netflix show “Real Rob,” also applauded DeGeneres and Hart’s conversation on Twitter.
DeGenerous has been receiving backlash for conducting the dialogue that took up the whole hour of her daytime show.
“I support @TheEllenShow supporting @KevinHart4real,” Schneider tweeted on Friday. “Comics are the ones who are supposed to say the horrible things we all think but don’t.”
Schneider also referred to DeGeneres as a “voice of reason in a world of idiots,” in another tweet.
Amid his social media rant, he also shared a quote said by late comedian George Carlin: “Political correctness is just fascism disguised as manners.”
“FREE LOUIS CK,” he wrote. “JOKES ARE WORDS YOU F#CKING MORON C#NTS”
