Kevin Hart is not ruling out a future invitation to host the Oscars, despite recent backlash that prompted him to step down from the coveted role. Hart has issued multiple apologies over the past month, including a new statement a few days ago, and the door seemed to be open again, per Academy member and past Oscars host Ellen DeGeneres, who urged him to attempt to reclaim the gig. Hart's appearance on the show only furthered the controversy for the actor and for DeGeneres. Hart says he won't be hosting the Academy Awards. "There's no more conversation about it". I'm over the moment. if it's accepted, great, and if it's not, it's nothing I can control.

He told "GMA" he's not giving any more explanations.

He added, "If you didn't [understand] I don't know what to tell you or do". "I'm a good person, I love to love, if you don't see that,'s a problem with you".

He added: "I am not hosting the Oscars this year".

"If you keep feeding this energy, then it's going to grow". "I understand you", he continued, adding that he hopes the LGBTQ community can forgive him and accept he's a different person from the one who sent those tweets nearly a decade ago.

The comedian initially rejected demands to apologize, insisting he had apologized for the tweets several times before, but later said sorry again after stepping down as Oscars presenter.

Kevin Hart says he has repeatedly apologised for his homophobic jokes.

"If the fight from the LGBTQ community is equality, that's the fight". I'll be watching regardless, because unlike the Golden Globes (which are a joke voted on by only 90 worldwide journalists), at least the Oscars paints a better picture of what the actual people working in Hollywood think about the year in movies.

Variety reports that for the first time in thirty years, the Oscars will be moving forward without a host. "This is wrong now", he said on the show.

The 2019 Academy Awards, set to air on Sunday, Feb. 24 on ABC, now does not have a replacement host. And I'm going to say it just in case you guys try to take this sh*t and chop it up, I will rebuttal with this f*cking piece right here.

During his hit on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Hart notably did not apologize and drew ire from many who noted that he was playing the victim card. "I love The Academy, I love everybody that's involved with the process of building the Oscars and making it". Hart has also said he previously addressed the controversial tweets and stand-up routines, but outlets including CNN and New York Magazine's Vulture could find evidence of an apology until after Hart made a decision to step down.
