Kevin Hart Now
Kevin Hart was appointed to host the 91st Oscar ceremony (February 24, 2019). However, the comedian voluntarily resigned after the scandal with his old (about 8-10 years ago) publications on Twitter, in which the actor had released a few offensive jokes about homosexuals. The movie Academy representatives called Kevin and asked him to apologize for his old jokes if he wanted to host the ceremony. Hart apologized (again on Twitter) but decided it would be better if he refused to be a host.
I have decided not to host the next Oscar. I do not want to attract attention that many talented artists are worthy of. My sincere apologies to LGBTQ community for my offensive words in the past.
