Kevin Hart Steps Down As Oscar Host After Old Homophobic Tweets Resurface

Comedian Kevin Hart speaks onstage at The Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber at Sony Pictures Studios on March 14, 2015 in Los Angeles, California. The Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber will air on March 30, 2015 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.

We reported earlier today that Kevin Hart addressed the outrage caused from old tweets he posted that recently resurfaced. Much like what happened to James Gunn and Rick & Morty creator Dan Harmon earlier this year, internet warriors dug deep into Hart’s profile to discover that he made questionable jokes on Twitter years ago. Hart uses homophobic slurs and uses the word “gay” disparagingly to describe those partaking in actions he deemed to be homosexual. Hart just announced earlier this week that he was set to host the 2019 Oscars, but now, he has stepped down.
