After Kevin Hart's departure, finding new Oscars host won't be easy

  • Kevin Hart addressed those tweets way back in 2014

It suggests that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences gave him an ultimatum to apologize or step down.

"I'm nearly 40 years old". This is not the first time this has come up.

'I sincerely apologise to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past'.

Kevin addressed his previous homophobic comments and revealed that he would no longer be hosting the Academy Awards in February to avoid "distracting" from the real objective of the night.

The comedian made some comments on Twitter between 2009 and 2011 that included derogatory language about homosexuals. If you don't believe that people change, grow, evolve?

He opted out of apologizing, arguing, "The reason why I passed is because I've addressed this several times".

Earlier in the week, Ellis told CNN, "This wasn't the conclusion I think everyone would have liked", adding that GLAAD is still willing to speak with Hart.

Hart's attitudes about homosexuality were also a well-known part of his stand-up act.

When Rolling Stone asked Hart about his anti-gay schtick in 2015, Hart said, "I wouldn't tell that joke today, because when I said it, the times weren't as sensitive as they are now".

"Hart's apology to LGBTQ people is an important step forward, but he missed a real opportunity to use his platform and the Oscars stage to build unity and awareness", said GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis.

Kevin Hart received a warm welcome this weekend in Australia, where he performed two comedy shows at a stadium, just after he stepped down as host of the 2019 Oscars following backlash over past anti-gay tweets.

And as comedian and actor Billy Eichner tweeted, "A simple, authentic apology showing any bit of understanding or remorse would have been so simple".

"He checks all the boxes for a show like the Oscars", Belloni said. This time, speculation has already been rampant that few in Hollywood want the gig, for which few win glowing reviews.

Between Tuesday night and Thursday night, there was a public pushback over Hart's selection.

The film academy moved up this year's ceremony to February 24, giving producers little time to find a replacement.

"He wrote that tweet eight years ago when gay marriage wasn't even legal yet, so we all do things. God knows in my 23 specials I've said heinously inappropriate things", she said.

The film academy has yet to address Hart's departure.

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. I've said where the rights and wrongs were. Blessed to be able to bring laughter on a worldwide level & do what I love!
