Kevin Hart is brushing off the Oscar uproar by returning to the stage for sold-out shows in Australia. The comedian was set to host the upcoming Academy Awards ceremony until some of his old tweets, which some consider to be homophobic, resurfaced. Back home, his ex-wife defended him in an exclusive interview with Inside Edition. Torrei Hart said Kevin is not homophobic and the tweets were meant as a joke. The two were childhood sweethearts and married before he was famous.
