Kevin Hart is “done” with the controversy over his historic homophobic tweets.
The 39-year-old actor has spoken out twice to apologize for the tweets which were resurfaced when he was announced as the host for the 2019 Oscars next month. He declined the offer amid this controversy but says he won’t be giving the situation “any more energy.”
In his words: ‘I won’t be defending my stand anymore–I’m done. That controversy will get none of my time anymore.’
The Night School star continued, ‘This is the reason I said for the last time, I’m addressing this…There’s no more conversation about it. I’m literally over that…I’m over the moment and I’m about today.
‘If my apology is accepted today–great–but if it’s not, there’s nothing I can do about it…There’s no need crying over spilled milk.
‘I already offered explanations on how I changed, which makes me say it’s all over–and I won’t repeat that… I owe nothing anymore–not even an explanation of who I am…I’ve done it–several times–and I’m just done.’
Kevin star believes that no matter how many times he addresses the situation some people still won’t be happy, so he’s chosen not to speak about the topic any more. He recently claimed he’s reconsidering his decision to walk away from the Oscars because the organizers are yet to find a replacement host, but now says he isn’t going to be working on the ceremony this year.
Speaking on ‘Good Morning America’, he said: “No. I’m not hosting the Oscars this year. It’s hard to predict what can happen … right now I don’t have the time.”
