In addition to the backlash over his past anti-gay tweets, Hart has also come under fire for his 2017 cheating scandal. He had apologized to his then-pregnant wife, Eniko Hart for his “bad” behavior and she has since forgiven him.
Hart had announced on Tuesday that he would host the 2019 Oscars. Users then unearthed anti-gay tweets he posted years ago, which he soon deleted .
He later revealed that the Academy asked him to apologize for his past homophobic remarks as a condition for him keeping his Oscars hosting gig. He initially refused, saying, “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 gonna continue to go back and tap into the days of old when I’ve moved on.”
