Kevin Hart withdraws from hosting the Oscars

TwitterFacebook

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.
