In December last year, the academy committee chose Keven Hart to host 2019s Oscars. They deliberately announced it to delight the fans who've been long lobbying for the comedian. He was overwhelmed by this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. However, they offered this proposal to him on one condition that he couldn't digest.

They asked him to delete his former homophobic tweets from 2009 and also apologize for them. This pinched Kevin and he explained himself to the public that he doesn't need to say sorry for something that he is grown out of.

He steps down from hosting Oscars altogether

Many people pushed him to remove all controversial remarks from his past. This scandal was cooked to the point where Kevin started to consider not hosting role at all. He's been talked into it from his friends, or any show that he has interviewed. Maybe now, he just wants to shake it off.

He has officially ruled himself out of hosting the Oscars that will be held on February 24.  He again, apologized to the community he might have hut by those controversial tweets.

In response to his withdrawal, the academy announced that they won't have a host at all. There will only be presenters. So, Kevin Hart was not only their option but the only one for them.
