[ # ] Kevin Hart steps down as the Oscar host
December 7th, 2018 under Kevin Hart, Oscars


On Tuesday, Kevin Hart was named this year’s Oscar host. Almost immediately, some of his old homophobic Tweets came back to haunt him and people asked for him to be ousted. Including the Academy.

The actor says they told him to apologize or they were going to have to search for a new host. He refused to do it because he claims he has apologized for those old tweets in the past. He also says he is not the man he used to be.

Then hours later 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. I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past.?” Then he added, “I’m sorry that I hurt people.. I am evolving and want to continue to do so. My goal is to bring people together not tear us apart. Much love & appreciation to the Academy. I hope we can meet again.”

He had no choice and neither did Academy and ABC. After all, the latter already fired Roseanne and James Gunn over past tweets, so they could let him off the hook if they didn’t let the others.

When it comes to who should replace him, they probably go with Wanda Sykes. She is an African-American lesbian who appears on an ABC show. But I would love if they went with Rob Lowe. He needs redemption after the last time he was part of hosting the Oscars.

Actually, I would prefer no host and no montages that are a waste of time; but we know that is never going to happen in our lifetime.

Oh and I love you Billy Crystal, but I think your time has passed.

Who do you think should host the Oscars this year?
