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.
