Earlier this week Kevin Hart announced that he was going to host the 91st Academy Awards! Kevin was so excited about hosting! He said
"For years I have been asked if I would ever Host the Oscars and my answers were always the same..I said that it wold be the opportunity of a lifetime for me as a comedian and that it will happen when it's suppose to. I am so happy to say that the day has finally come for me to host the Oscars."

But as soon as the news came out, someone pulled up OLDDDDDD tweets from Kevin Hart that were homophobic! And trust me, I DO NOT in any way agree with the tweets and what he was saying, but Kevin explained that since then, he has grown and apologized for them!
Well the Oscars called him and said that he would have to apologize if he wanted to host the show!
Again, these tweets are NOT a new thing, he's addressed them and said sorry, but how many times will he have to say sorry?! Imagine you cheated on a BF or GF and then everytime after that you had to say sorry for that action to every single person you dated after that?! I understand that the tweets are hurtful and should have never been said, but if he's acknowledged them and said sorry, does that mean he won't ever be able to move on?
But once again, Kevin decided to officially step down and say sorry!
