KEVIN HART STEPPING DOWN AS OSCARS HOST OVER ANTI-GAY TWEETS

Following the announcement that Kevin Hart would be hosting the upcoming 2019 OSCARs, he is now stepping down. The move comes after anti-gay tweets from several years ago have come to life.

Taking to Twitter, Hart said “I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past,” following up in another tweet “I’m sorry that I hurt people…I am evolving and want to continue to do so.”

The question is now will those same tweets affect other areas of his growing entertainment empire and personal brand. For now the search is on for Hart’s replacement.
