Kevin Hart says he’s definitely not hosting Oscars, after homophobia row

Kevin Hart says he’s definitely not hosting Oscars, after homophobia row

While he didn't want to elaborate on how he has evolved over the years, Hart said, "I'm not saying how I changed anymore".

Hart's apology is what ruffled people's feathers in the first place with many asking if the popular comedian is really honest.

"There's no more conversation about it ..." I'm literally over that. I'm over that, I'm over the moment ... "And I'm about today". I'm not giving no more explanation of who I am ...

"I shouldn't have to prove who I am", Hart said.

Lemon, who's part of the LGBTQ community, criticized the comedian for not offering an apology when the tweets surfaced last month.

The Oscars are set to go ahead without a host for the first time ever, Variety reports. I understand life and in life you have ups and downs.

Kevin Hart was originally offered the hosting slot but stepped down amid criticism over years-old homophobic remarks that resurfaced. After an appearance on Ellen Degeneres' show, it was rumored that the Academy had considered welcoming Hart back as the host had he used the opportunity to apologize.

The comedian said on the red carpet that she couldn't be there because she was flying to NY, but she was looking forward to reuniting with everyone at the National Board of Review Awards.

And although Ellen DeGeneres called for him to be reinstated, the comedian said there he will "absolutely not" be hosting the ceremony on 25 February, saying "it's not in God's plan for him right now". She also revealed that she had contacted the academy to see if it would give him another chance.

This all comes just 24 hours after addressing the backlash in a lengthy segment on his SiriusXM radio show Straight to the Hart, that truly dissected every angle of this thing.

Michael Strahan interviews Kevin Hart on GMA.

The virus of political correctness and woke sermonizing that has wormed its way into the Academy Awards for the past decade has all but turned Hollywood's most prestigious awards show into a level of laughingstock that not even the Golden Globes has stooped to. If you keep feeding this energy, then it's going to grow. "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. "I apologize", he said on his show.

Then when asked about how he feels, he said, "I'm over it".
