With Kevin Hart’s downfall, hosting the Oscars got harder

Kevin Hart Quits Oscars Hosting Gig Over Anti-Gay Past

The organisers of the Oscars are searching for a new host after the comedian who had accepted the job a few days ago announced that he was stepping down over homophobic remarks he had made on Twitter. The turn of events followed outcry over previous anti-gay tweets, and comments Hart made during stand-up routines almost 10 years ago.

His dismissal was lamented by GLAAD, the gay and lesbian campaign group, which said it had hoped that his "evolving" mindset might have become a "teachable moment" broadcast to millions.

GLAAD previously tweeted that the LGBTQ media advocacy organization had reached out to ABC, the Academy, and Hart's management "to discuss Kevin's anti-LGBTQ rhetoric and record as well as opportunities for positive LGBTQ inclusion on the Oscars stage".

He also wrote, "All I can say is WOOOOOOOOW.Thank you so much Sydney Australia.Making the world laugh is forever a priority".

Hart's announcement came barely an hour after he posted an Instagram video in which he candidly shared, "I just got a call from the Academy, and that call basically said, 'Kevin, apologize for your tweets of old, or we're going to have to move on and find another host.' I chose to pass".

"I'm nearly 40 years old". Among the vocal critics of Hart as a host, The Guardian's Benjamin Lee published an article, "Oscars Host Kevin Hart's Homophobia Is No Laughing Matter", with footage from his late 2000s stand-up act about his son's "first gay thought". "I wouldn't tell [a joke about fearing my son was gay] today, because when I said it, the times weren't as sensitive as they are now".
