Tweets of Kevin’s Hart past have resurfaced once again. The homophobic tweets are from about 10 years ago. Tweets that Kevin has already apologized for and spoken on multiple times in the past. Being that this week, Kevin announced that he would be the host of the 2019 Oscars, this morning he posted on his Instagram explaining that he was given two options by the Academy: to apologize or step down.

Kevin chose to pass on the apology since he has apologized multiple times already in previous years. Adding that he has changed as a person and has made that known many times. He added that if the Academy chooses to go a different route with the host then so be it, but he will not continue to be badgered for something he has already settled in the past.

Kevin has since tweeted to say he will be stepping down as the host of the 2019 Oscars. He continues to say he does not want to be a distraction on a night that should be celebrated. He ended by apologizing to the LGBTQ community for his insensitive words in the past.
