Kevin Hart Steps Down As 2019 Academy Awards Host After Homophobic Comments Resurface

Kevin Hart will no longer be hosting the 91st Academy Awards. His decision comes shortly after the 39-year-old, refused to apologize for homophobic tweets and comments he made in the past. Hart announced the news via Twitter on Thursday night (December 6), which offers a "sorry" to any person of the LGBTQ community he is offended.

"I have taken the decision to resign from the celebration of this year's Oscar....this is because I don't want to be a distraction on a night that should be celebrated by so many amazing artists with talent," he wrote on twitter.
