Kevin Hart Out As Oscars Host

Posted by Bob Saye on 2018/12/07

Well, that didn't last long. A few days ago it was announced comedian Kevin Hart was going to host the Oscars. Not so fast. He has stepped down as host. Some tweets he made a decade ago that were homophobic came to light again. The Academy told him to apologize or they would find a new host. Initially he refused but today (Friday December 7th) he apologized to the LGBTQ community for his insensitive words. He still stepped aside as host saying he didn't want to be a distraction. Kevin said, "I passed along the apology. I'm not going to continue to go back and tap into the days of old when I've moved on. I'm in a completely different space in my life."
