Kevin Hart steps down as Oscars host following backlash over Anti-Gay tweets he made 10 years ago

American actor and comedian, Kevin Hart has stepped down as host of the upcoming Academy Awards following anti-gay tweets he made in the past.

After the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced the actor and comedian as the host of the 2019 Oscar Awards, the tweets he made about 10 years ago surfaced online.

Hard had constantly addressed the comments, saying he’s now a changed man. But many people refused to back down on the criticisms, and following the backlash he decided to quit as the host of the Oscars.

He posted a video on Instagram which he captioned:

"Stop looking for reasons to be negative...Stop searching for reasons to be angry....I swear I wish you guys could see/feel/understand the mental place that I am in.

You LIVE and YOU LEARN & YOU GROW &YOU MATURE. I live to Love....Please take your negative energy and put it into something constructive. Please....What’s understood should never have to be said. I LOVE EVERYBODY.....ONCE AGAIN EVERYBODY. If you choose to not believe me then that’s on you....Have a beautiful day"
