Kevin Hart Officially Shuts Down Oscars Gig: "I Don't Have The Time"

Kevin Hart Officially Shuts Down Oscars Gig:

There was speculation that he might return, but on Wednesday he told ABC's Good Morning America: "I'm not hosting the Oscars this year". "I understand you", he continued, adding that he hopes the LGBTQ community can forgive him and accept he's a different person from the one who sent those tweets nearly a decade ago.

He told "GMA" he's not giving any more explanations.

Hart and Cranston tried to be as authentic to the characters as they could, the actor said, adding that the film really dives into perceptions, considering the two men come from two very different backgrounds. "I'm not saying I've changed anymore".

"If you didn't [hear the apology], I don't know what you're looking for".

"I'm not going to continue to go back and tap into the days of old when I moved on, and I'm in a completely different space in my life", Hart said in a video on Instagram.

Kevin continued to speak about the scandal on his SiriusXM show Straight From the Hart on Monday, taking the opportunity to apologize again. I didn't say these words to people, at the time, this was our dumb asses on Twitter going back and forth with each other.

"We thought it was okay to talk like that [in the past], because that's how we talked to one another", Hart explained. "I apologize", he said on his show.

"If the fight from the LGBTQ community is equality, that's the fight".

Hart said that the backlash Ellen DeGeneres received for supporting him proved that there was "no ending".

Later that day, Hart quit ― and apologized for the homophobic tweets.

Hart was named as host of the 2019 Academy Awards show on December 4th of a year ago but stepped down amid the controversy of homophobic jokes. "I've said who I am now versus who I was then". "The opportunity was presented, I could have still done it, but I don't have the time to make it my own". I'm not addressing it. I've said where the rights and wrongs were. While he told her, at the time, that he would "evaluate" his decision and get back to her, it appears as he's ultimately chose to walk away, for good. "You're the best", Rock said.

"You're not getting no more of my energy from it", he added. He took proudly to social media afterwards to announce it but his elation was short-lived.

They ended the Oscar talk with Andy asking whether he'll ever host any award show in the future, something he clearly was not opposed to.

Hart later came to her defense, saying: 'When did we get to the point where we forgot that we all learn, then we all have the ability to grow and with that growth comes a wealth of knowledge.
