Just two days after the announcement that he’d be hosting the 2019 Oscars, comedian Kevin Hart steps down  after making it clear he won’t apologize for the tweets he made in the past.

In a tweet Thursday night, Hart wrote “I have made the choice to step down from hosting this year’s Oscar’s….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.” Hart followed up with another tweet apologizing for the hurt he caused.

“I’ve moved on,” he said. “I’m in a completely different place in my life.

“The reason why I’ve passed is that I’ve addressed it several times,” he said on Instagram. “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.”

The comedian later posted a video on Instagram, On Thursday where he explains that he’s grown as a person from the time when those tweets were posted. “I’m almost 40 years old,” he said, in response to his team contacting him over people feeling angered by his old tweets. “If you don’t believe that people change, grow, evolve, I don’t know what to tell you.”
