Kevin Hart Steps Down as Host From 91st Oscars (Full Story)

Kevin Hart

It seems the pressure got the best of the comedian and he has just announced via his Twitter account that he will no longer be hosting the Academy Awards this year.

Here are the Tweets.

Kevin Hart previously announced via his Instagram account that he was going to host this year’s Academy Awards.

Why Did It Happen?

Here’s the situation. Two hours ago Kevin Hart published a self-recorded video on his Instagram account. In which he talked about The Academy calling him and asking to apologize for something he said in 2009-2010.

Based on this video it seemed like The Academy literally threatened him by saying, apologize or we are going to find a new host for our show.

Kevin Hart made a strong and brave move by not apologizing because he has already apologized for those things previously and denied to do it again.

And honestly saying it doesn’t make any sense to apologize for something that a person already has. So, in my opinion, Kevin Hart did the right thing here.

So many artists supported him by commenting on his video on Instagram. Here are the few screenshots of the comments.

And as Kevin Hart denied for apologizing, which I believe was the right thing to do. After that, he tweeted and confirmed stepping down from the host’s position of the 91st Oscars.

Now, we don’t know whether he talked to the Academy after making that video or decided on his own that he’ll be stepping down.

But it happened and his fans and many other celebrities are disappointed because of this whole scenario and the majority of people including myself are supporting Kevin Hart in all this.
