As he stepped down from hosting the Oscars 2019, the Hollywood star said: 'I have made the choice to step down from hosting this year's Oscars... this is because I do not want to be a distraction on a night that should be celebrated by so many wonderful talented artists. "I don't know what to tell you", said Hart, who added, in all-caps: "I love everybody".

GLAAD, the advocacy group for LGBTQ rights, said Thursday that it reached out to Oscars broadcaster ABC, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, and Hart's management to "discuss Kevin's anti-LGBTQ rhetoric and record". 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'". And he has a huge social following.

'Oscars host has become a not very desirable job in Hollywood.

People have stepped down from being the public face of the event amid controversy, as producer Brett Ratner did in 2011 for anti-gay slurs.

By Thursday morning, a few publications had written articles about them and the outrage escalated. Actor D.L. Hughley commended Hart for his decision.

'A Comedian says something that offends people and refuses to apologize? Hart said the film academy told him he had to apologize or he'd lose the gig. F*** 'em if they can't take a joke! Approximately 48 hours later, Hart stepped down from the prestigious post.

Import growth was 3 per cent, the slowest since October 2016, and a fraction of the 14.5 per cent seen in the poll. The customs data showed that annual growth for exports to all of China's major partners slowed significantly.

The film academy has yet to address Hart's departure. He bowed out on his own, and with an apology.

Many keep coming back to Whoopi Goldberg, who has hosted the awards four times. A woman? A comedian? All of the above? In an accompanying video, a shirtless Hart said he wasn't going to "let the craziness frustrate me".

Other possible hosts floated by Variety include Billy Eichner; Donald Glover; Ken Jeong; Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele; Melissa McCarthy; Lin Manuel-Miranda; Patton Oswalt; Issa Rae and Wanda Sykes.

Busy Phillips threw her own name out there tweeting: 'I AM AVAILABLE'.

Hart initially failed to issue an apology, insisting he had addressed the situation "several times" already.

But the film academy will need to move quickly.
