Kevin Hart Steps Down as Oscars Host After Homophobic Tweet Backlash

Image Kevin Hart Deletes Old Anti Gay Tweets After Being Chosen as Oscars Host Image #2

Netflix still has up Kevin Hart's Seriously Funny despite it containing homophobic jokes that have forced him to step down from hosting the Oscars.

Instead we've been treated to a few posts on social media in which Kevin Hart insists he's a family man and calls those who are outraged by his remarks "angry people".

Update: Hart posted the following video and accompanying text to Instagram in response to today's flurry of scrutiny. It seems that he (*gasp*) told some bad jokes about gay people back in the day, making him Unfit For Duty.

"I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past", he tweeted.

"I passed. The reason I passed is because I've addressed this several times". I have said where the rights and wrongs were.

You @KevinHart4real are NOT FIT a model, or representative to Host for the @TheAcademy which CELEBRATES & WELCOMES talent of all genders, sexualities, & ethnicitieas. you frequently reveal yourself to occupy the malevolence you treat people who don't sexually exist like you as.

"I swear, man, our world is becoming beyond insane".

Did you hear that comedian Kevin Hart was picked to host the Oscars? "I hope we can meet again".

He signed off by saying, "Regardless, the Academy, I'm thankful and appreciative of the opportunity". On the 4th of December, Tuesday, the 39-year-old comedian said he would be at the helm of the Oscars next year. Some of them were seen as racist, such as when she wrote, "Coworker at forever21 dates black guys and she said she will set me up on a blind date for valentines, I said yes but I'm scared". "I've done it", the TV star continued. Hart reportedly declined the Academy's request to apologize for the tweets and instead stepped down, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

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

"I was asked the most unbelievable question from my kids today on the phone....they said "Dad why don't you get mad when people talk about you on the internet" ...my answer was 'I never see that stuff because I'm to busy being happy & loving you 2, '" he wrote. "I'm in a completely different space in my life".

Hart answered the outrage with a video Thursday, stating: "I swear, man, our world is becoming beyond insane".

Kevin Hart expressed a number of anti-gay sentiments and what could be considered phobic terminology and slurs dating back to 2009.
