Kevin Hart Resigns As Oscars Host Over Past Tweets

Kevin Hart said he’s stepping from hosting the 2019 Oscars — just two days after getting the gig.

He tweeted: “I have made the choice to step down from hosting this year’s Oscar’s….this is because I do not want to be a distraction on a night that should be celebrated by so many amazing talented artists.

The announcement he would be quitting the show came just minutes after he posted a message on Instagram saying Motion Picture Academy officials has asked him to apologize or they would find another host — and he refused to apologize.

Despite that, Kevin did offer an apology in his later tweet, saying: “I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past.
