Kevin Hart has stepped down from hosting The Oscars this year.
The decision to drop out of the show comes after some homophobic tweets from 2009 resurfaced. Kevin addressed the tweets and his choice not to host the show in this message to his fans:
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. I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past.
