Nooo!! Pineapples! Kevin Hart Steps Down From Hosting Oscars???

Wednesday afternoon, comedian Kevin Hart announced that he would be the host  for the upcoming 91st annual Academy Awards. However after a lot of controversy over some past tweets the comedian made, by Thursday night, he had stepped down.

This all happened over previous anti-gay tweets, and comments Hart made during stand-up routines nearly 10 years ago. Some of the tweets were deleted throughout the day on Thursday, leading to an Instagram video from the comedian that only made matters worse.

“My team calls me, ‘Oh my God, Kevin, everyone’s upset by tweets you did years ago,’” he said in that video. “Guys, I’m nearly 40 years old. If you don’t believe that people change, grow, evolve as they get older, I don’t know what to tell you. If you want to hold people in a position where they always have to justify the past, do you. I’m the wrong guy, man.”

Stop looking for reasons to be negative…Stop searching for reasons to be angry….I swear I wish you guys could see/feel/understand the mental place that I am in. I am truly happy people….there is nothing that you can do to change that…NOTHING. I work hard on a daily basis to spread positivity to all….with that being said. If u want to search my history or past and anger yourselves with what u find that is fine with me. I’m almost 40 years old and I’m in love with the man that I am becoming. You LIVE and YOU LEARN & YOU GROW & YOU MATURE. I live to Love….Please take your negative energy and put it into something constructive. Please….What’s understood should never have to be said. I LOVE EVERYBODY…..ONCE AGAIN EVERYBODY. If you choose to not believe me then that’s on you….Have a beautiful day

Those words were considered to be a non-apology for some. Hours later, Hart resurfaced with another video stating that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences had given him an ultimatum: Apologize or we’ll find a new host.

“I chose to pass on the apology,” the 39-year-old actor-comedian said in the video. “The reason why I passed is because I’ve addressed this several times. This is not the first time this has come up. I’ve addressed it. I’ve spoken on it. I’ve said where the rights and wrongs were. I’ve said who I am now versus who I was then. I’ve done it. I’m not going to continue to go back and tap into the days of old when I’ve moved on and I’m in a completely different place in my life.”

Less than two hours later, Hart announced via Twitter that he was removing himself from the opportunity, and apologized.

“I have made the choice to step down from hosting this year’s Oscars,” he wrote. “This is because I do not want to be a distraction on a night that should be celebrated by so many amazing talented artists. I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past. I’m sorry that I hurt people. I am evolving and want to continue to do so. My goal is to bring people together not tear us apart. Much love and appreciation to the Academy. I hope we can meet again.”

The lesson in this story is that you have to always be wise about what you say, but at the same time, never say anything that will come back to haunt you. Honestly I was looking forward to seeing Kevin host the Oscars just as much as I was when Chris Rock hosted. I just knew there was going to be a ton of jokes to make the show worth watching. I think we live in a world where we can forgive and maybe the Academy should forgive and allow Kevin to still host the Oscars! That’s just my opinion so who knows.

We are so quick to bring up the past of others but how many of us have a past? I’m sure no one in Hollywood is perfect and I’m sure every individual there has done something in the dark that they don’t want the world to know. This man has proven that he has changed and matured since 10 years ago. I’m so tired of people acting like they are so perfect. None of us are who we were 10 years ago!  In the most recent video below with Steve Harvey, he states that he loves everybody!

It’s time we stop searching for reasons to create negativity. I hate to say it but we have become such a sensitive society overall. We want everyone to basically be clones when it comes to their thoughts and opinions. True enough, I don’t agree with dissing anyone based off of their sexuality but we have got to let people be human and have their own personal opinions without forcing our ways upon them. This man has every right to feel however he felt 10 years ago but now he is a family man and he has learned his lesson from making bad mistakes. I’m not saying he is perfect because I don’t know him personally but what I am saying is that the bible says we all have fell short of the glory and that a good man falls several times. I applaud that even though he fell a few times…the man got up and owned his mistakes. I say to the Academy Awards crew…let this man host the Oscars so we can have a great show! We all make mistakes…how dare we demand someone to suffer today for what they did 10 years ago?!

“It would be the honor of a lifetime for me as a comedian,” said Kevin Hart.

The star is emceeing the event for the first time. First-time producers Donna Gigliotti and Glenn Weiss will oversee the show, with Gigliotti serving as producer and Weiss on hand as co-producer and director.

Earlier on Tuesday, The Hollywood Reporter reported that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences had held talks with the comedian about hosting the February ceremony.

“I appreciate @TheAcademy for the opportunity,” wrote Hart in his post, adding, “For years I have been asked if I would ever Host the Oscars and my answer was always the same…I said that it would be the opportunity of a lifetime for me as a comedian and that it will happen when it’s suppose to.”

The last two Oscar shows were hosted by Jimmy Kimmel and produced by Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd. But each year ratings declined, with a record-low 26.5 million viewers tuning in for last March’s broadcast, which adds to the pressure the new team will face in mounting the kudocast.

The Academy, which has promised that the show won’t run over three hours, has already announced one change — not all the awards in the 24 Oscar categories will be revealed live. Instead, six to eight categories will be announced before the audience at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood during commercial breaks, and edited excerpts from the acceptances will be aired later in the broadcast.

In August, the Academy’s board also recommended the creation of a new award, a so-called “popular” Oscar, that it said would recognize “outstanding achievement in popular film,” ensuring that some of the biggest box office successes of the year have a prominent place at the awards. But that idea met with so much resistance that the Academy shelved it a month later.

Hart previously hosted the MTV Movie Awards along with his Central Intelligence co-star Dwayne Johnson. He has publicly spoken about wanting to host the Oscars since at least 2015, when he told the morning show Live With Kelly and Michael (now Live With Kelly and Ryan) that he was actively campaigning to get the role. “That would be a major accomplishment. With what I’ve done and the progress I’ve made in my career, that’s definitely the next major step, I feel, for a comedian,” Hart said to the hosts at the time.

The Oscars will air live on Sunday, Feb. 24, on ABC.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle In Theaters For Christmas Starring Kevin Hart, The Rock & More!

The movie we all grew up on is back and this time it’s being told with a bit of a twist. Of course it’s not like the original one we remember with the late star, Robin Williams, but it is quite interesting. I would like to think that having stars such as Kevin Hart, The Rock, Jack Black, Nick Jonas and others help to make the movie worth watching.

The movie tells the story of four high school kids  who discover an old video game console, and are drawn into the game’s jungle setting, literally becoming the adult avatars they chose. What they discover is that you don’t just play Jumanji – you must survive it. To beat the game and return to the real world, they’ll have to go on the most dangerous adventure of their lives, discover what Alan Parrish left 20 years ago, and change the way they think about themselves – or they’ll be stuck in the game forever.

The movie is set to release just in time for Christmas on December 20, 2017.
