Hart has addressed his offensive old tweets several time in the past and just recently. However, the academy gave him an ultimatum and told him to apologize or get replaced.

Hart made the quick decision to step down because he did not want to apologize. He explained in a Twitter post,

“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 amazingly talented artists. I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past,” Hart tweeted. “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.”

There were a lot of mixed feelings about Kevin’s decision. Some people were actually upset that tweets from the past caused him to lose the opportunity of a lifetime. While others were happy to hear that he would not be apart of the awards show.
