Kevin Hart steps down as Oscars host over homophobic Tweets
Kevin Hart steps down as Oscars host after apologises to LGBTQ community following backlash over his gay tweet joke.
“I have made the choice to step down from hosting this year’s Oscar’s…. this is because I do not want to be a distraction on a night that should be celebrated by so many amazing talented artists,” the comedian apologises….
“I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past.” The apology continued into another tweet!
“I’m sorry that I hurt people… I am evolving and want to continue to do so,” the comedian continued. “My goal is to bring people together not tear us apart. Much love & appreciation to the Academy. I hope we can meet again.”
Kevin says in an Instagram video, the hateful response to his old tweets illustrates just how PC-crazy our world has become … and he says he’s not going to let the haters bring him down.
“I just got a call from the Academy and that call basically said, ‘Kevin, apologize for your tweets of old or we’re going to have to move on and find another host.’ I’m talking about the tweets from 2009 and 2010,” he said in an Instagram video, posted on Dec. 6
