The comedian Kevin Hart has said he will no longer be the host of 2019 Oscars, after criticisms about past homophobic comments.Hart who is in Sydney Australia, for a show made the announcement in several tweets Friday morning.
In his initial response hours before stepping down, Mr. Hart did not apologise. “Guys, I’m almost 40 years old,” he said in a video. “If you don’t believe that people change, grow, evolve as they get older, I don’t know what to tell you. If you want to hold people in a position where they always have to justify or explain the past, then do you. I’m the wrong guy, man. I’m in a great place. A great mature place where all I do is spread positivity.”
