Anti-Gay Tweet DRAMA: Kevin Hart Has Stepped Down As Oscars Host

Comedian Kevin Hart announced Thursday night that he will no longer host the 2019 Oscars after refusing to apologize for posting anti-gay tweets years ago that had recently resurfaced, reports BuzzFeed.

The controversy over the tweets began earlier this week following the announcement that the Night School actor would host the upcoming Academy Awards. Some of the tweets dating back years were deleted, but screenshots revealed several posts using anti-gay language and repeated use of the words “fag” and “homo.”
