OLD TWEETS BITE KEVIN HART


Kevin Hart says he has quit as the host of the 2019 Oscars following a controversy over homophobic tweets.

He said he did not want to be a distraction and that he was "sorry he had hurt people". The choice of Hart for host was only announced on Tuesday.

He said he had chosen to step down "because I do not want to be a distraction on a night that should be celebrated by so many amazing talented artists".

He said: "I sincerely apologise to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words of the past." Kevin had said during a comedy routine in 2010 "One of my biggest fears is my son growing up and being gay. That's a fear. Keep in mind, I'm not homophobic, I have nothing against gay people, be happy. Do what you want to do. But me, being a heterosexual male, if I can prevent my son from being gay, I will."
