Kevin Hart withdraws from hosting the Oscars

Kevin Hart has stepped down as Oscars host.

In a tweet posted late on Thursday, the comedian said he did not want "to be a distraction" on the night, and apologized to the LGBTQ community for his "insensitive words from my past."

Hart added in another tweet that he was "sorry that I hurt people," and hopes one day he and the Academy can meet again.

I have made the choice to step down from hosting this year's Oscar's….this is because I do not want to be a distraction on a night that should be celebrated by so many amazing talented artists. I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past.

I'm sorry that I hurt people.. I am evolving and want to continue to do so. My goal is to bring people together not tear us apart. Much love & appreciation to the Academy. I hope we can meet again.

The actor and comedian was announced as the host of the 91st Academy Awards on Wednesday, but it was quickly followed by concerns over some of his older, now-deleted tweets which contained a number of homophobic slurs.

After seeing this @benfraserlee tweet, I did a search for every time Kevin Hart tweeted "fag," "homo," or "gay." It was…a lot. And he seems to have basically stopped tweeting those words after 2011 — i.e. the year his first stand-up movie became a hit. https://t.co/P8nTOilFgx pic.twitter.com/6uzPhnvt4F

Hart then made a non-apology via Instagram on Thursday afternoon, where he told people to "stop looking for reasons to be negative."

In a later Instagram post, Hart revealed he received a call from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, who had asked him to apologize for his tweets or they would find another host.

Hart at the time said he had "addressed" the slurs, and that he wouldn't give an apology. That now, of course, has changed.
