Kevin Hart Refuses to Apologize, Despite Academy Ultimatum, for Past Anti-Gay ...


It appears the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences may be looking for a new host for the upcoming Oscars ceremony very soon.


In a new Instagram video , Kevin Hart, who was tapped to emcee the ceremony earlier this week, says the Academy called him issuing an ultimatum if things were going to proceed as planned.


“I just got a call from the Academy and that call basically said, ‘Kevin, apologize for your tweets of old or we’re going to have to move on and find another host.’ I’m talking about the tweets from 2009 and 2010,” the 39-year-old comedian said.


I’m not going to continue to go back and tap into the days of old when I’ve moved on and I’m in a completely different place in my life.”


In a previous Instagram video , Hart addressed escalating concerns over a long history of hate speech and derogatory jokes about the LGBTQ community on social media, resurfaced in national news after he was named host of the Oscars on Thursday.


“Stop looking for reasons to be negative,” Hart wrote in the previous Instagram post.
