Hart steps down as Oscars host after outcry over tweets



NEW YORK (AP) – Just two days after being nominated as a guest at the Academy Awards, Kevin Hart resigned following a clamor on the past homophobic tweets from the comedian.

Capping a rapid and dramatic fallout, Hart wrote on Twitter shortly after midnight on Friday, who was retiring as an Oscar guest because he did not want to be a distraction. "I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past," Hart wrote.

Hart stepped aside about an hour after refusing to apologize for the tweets that resurfaced after being announced as an Oscar guest on Tuesday. In a video on Instagram, Hart said the Academy of Motion Arts and Sciences gave him an ultimatum: apologize or "we'll have to move on and find another host".

Hart said: "I chose to pass on the apology The reason I went through is because I've turned over several times."

The film academy did not respond to the messages Thursday night.

Hart has deleted some of the anti-gay tweets, mostly dated from 2009-2011. But they had already been captured by the screen and shared online. In 2011, he wrote in a tweet already deleted: "Yo if my son comes home and try 2 to play with my daughters dollhouse, I'm going 2 to break his head and say to my voice & # 39; stop it being gay. " [19659002] In a previous post, Thursday, Hart wrote on Instagram that critics should "stop being negative" about his previous anti-gay remarks.

"I am almost 40. If you do not believe that people change, grow, evolve? I do not know what to tell you," said Hart, who added, in all the protections: "I love everyone."

Hart's attitudes about homosexuality were also a well-known part of his cabaret. In the 2010 "Seriously Fun" special, he said "one of my biggest fears is my son growing up and being gay.

" Remember, I'm not homophobic, I have nothing against gay people, do what I want to do, but I, being a heterosexual male, if I can prevent my son from being gay, I will do it, "Hart said.

GLAAD, the LGBTQ rights advocacy group, said it reached the issuer of Oscars The ABC, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the Hart Direction for "Discussing Rhetoric and Recording Kevin's Anti-LGBTQ"

Comedian and actor Billy Eichner said " a simple and authentic excuse that shows a minimum of understanding or remorse would have been

It is not the first time that an Oscar presenter has derailed by anti-gay remarks. In the run-up to the 2012 Academy Awards, producer Brett Ratner, who had partnered with guest Eddie Murphy, resigned a few days after using a gay muttering at a film screening, and even Murphy soon came out.

That year, an attempt – and true Oscar veteran – Billy Crystal – intervened to save the show, hosting for its eighth time. This time, speculation has already been rampant that few in Hollywood want the concert, for which few get positive reviews.

The film academy has moved this year to the ceremony on February 24, giving producers little time to find a replacement. [19659048] More from Aol.com :
