Kevin Hart was going to host this year's Academy Awards. Then a bunch of old homophobic Tweets surfaced.
According to Hart, he was given an ultimatum of either stepping down as host or apologizing for his Twitter jokes. He decided to step down.
“I chose to pass on the apology,” Hart said. “The reason why I passed is because I’ve addressed this several times. This is not the first time this has come up. I’ve addressed it. I’ve spoken on it. I’ve said where the rights and wrongs were. I’ve said who I am now versus who I was then. I’ve done it. 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.”
Snoop Dogg was among those who thought Hart made the right decision.
"Don't trip, that ain't our kind of shit anyways. Oscars? Yeah right, come do the BET Awards, cus. Or Soul Train," he said. "They don't care. You a comedian, crackin' jokes... Really? Y'all want me to host it now? Nah I don't think so. I got shit to do ... Kevin Hart, smoke a blunt. Tell the Academy to suck a dick or die trying. Fuck 'em. We still love you, nigga. Fuck the Grammys too," Snoop said.
