The Latest: Kevin Hart steps down as Oscars host

"Asking Hannah Gadsby to host the Oscars is the most obvious thing in the world, come the eff on, Academy", wrote Rachel Vorona Cote on Twitter. On Thursday, Buzzfeed reported that Hart had begun deleting some of his more offensive tweets, including this one from 2011: "Yo if my son comes home & try's 2 play with my daughters doll house I'm going 2 break it over his head & say n my voice 'stop that's gay'". "My team calls me, 'Oh my God, Kevin, everyone's upset by tweets you did years ago, '" he said in an Instagram video, apparently exasperated with the current times.
Kevin Hart is out as host of the Oscars in the wake of an escalating backlash involving the actor/comedian's homophobic social-media history.
In the clip, obtained by TMX, the actor replied that he is aware of the harm his words can inflict on gay people and said: 'I don't want that problem.
"I'm nearly 40 years old". Hours later, Hart resurfaced with another video stating that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences had given him an ultimatum: Apologize or we'll find a new host.
Turns out the Ride Along star has addressed the tweets back in 2014 and also failed to adequately apologise, as the words "sorry" or "I apologise" were missing yet again. If you don't believe that people change, grow, evolve as they get older, I don't know what to tell you. This is not the first time this has come up. Ahead of the 2012 Academy Awards, producer Brett Ratner, who had been paired with host Eddie Murphy, resigned days after using a gay slur at a film screening.
That year, a tried-and-true Oscars veteran - Billy Crystal - jumped in to save the show, hosting for his eighth time.
The film academy moved up this year's ceremony to February 24, giving producers little time to find a replacement. Hart said the film academy told him he had to apologize or he'd lose the gig. I've said who I am now versus who I was then.
Griffin hoped Hart's departure would open the door for a woman comedian to host the show.
Insiders say that celebrities in Hollywood don't want to host the Oscars as it places "a target on your back", just as it did with Hart.
Terry Crews, who described Hart as a "brother", said he respected Hart's decision to walk away from the show. I've said where the rights and wrongs were.
