Kevin Hart Gives Up Oscars Host Gig After Homophobic Slurs

This week Kevin Hart announced that he would host the 2019 Oscars.

This week he also announced that he'd step down from the job, after past insensitive homophobic slurs were dug up on his Twitter account.

Channel24 reports that Kevin posted an apology on Twitter on Friday.

In his apology he apologized to the LGBTQ community and says that he stepped down "as not to be a distraction on a night that should be celebrated by so many amazing talented artists." In a 2010 stand-up special, Hart joked "If I can prevent my son from being gay, I will." In a recent Instagram video Hart said that he wouldn't "let the craziness frustrate me," and that he "loves everybody." According to Channel24, GLAAD, a gay media watchdog group, reached out to the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences and Hart's management to "discuss Kevin's anti-LGBTQ rhetoric and record."
