Comedian Kevin Hart to step down from hosting 2019 Oscars

Comedian Kevin Hart announced his decision to step down from hosting this year's Oscars.

"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 apologise for my insensitive words from my past," Hart tweeted.

This comes after some of his "insensitive" tweets resurfaced online after his appointment as the host of the Oscars.
