The Timeline of Kevin Hart’s Oscars Debacle
December 7, 2018
Just days after announcing he will host the Oscars, Kevin Hart has dropped out after backlash over old homophobic tweets. Hart's speedy downfall was head-spinning. Earlier this week, British newspaper The Guardian uncovered his old tweets and ran the story, “Oscars Host Kevin Hart's Homophobia Is No Laughing Matter.” Now that he’s out, some names under consideration reportedly include Jimmy Kimmel, Ellen DeGeneres, Hugh Jackman, Chris Rock, and Jon Stewart, all of whom have hosted before.
