When asked if he is hosting the Oscars this year, he simply said, "No" and that it's too late to prepare.

Just three days later, he stepped down after homophobic tweets from eight years ago re-emerged; he said he's already apologized for the tweets and that he's not the same person he was at that time. "I apologize", he said on his show.

Hart added that with his future standup and comedy acts, he would also make sure he doesn't say or do anything offensive towards the community. We thought it was okay to talk like that, because that's how we talked to one another. "I don't want people to think there's a thing between me and the Academy, because there isn't. I understand you. But in the fight for equality, that means that there has to be an acceptance for change".

"I'm over it", he said repeatedly to nearly every question on the topic during a sometimes testy interview on ABC's 'Good Morning America'. Right now, from a time perspective, I don't have the time [to return as host]... After facing some criticism for his appearance on Ellen last week, Hart further addressed the controversy over his old "homophobic" jokes on his Sirius XM radio show.

Quoting the start of one of the controversial jokes from his 2010 stand-up routine during the show, Kevin paraphrased: "I want to say that I have no problem with gay people".

Hart on going over his past remarks: "I really had to dive into the whole thing, even the tweets. Where does the equality part come in?"

Hart has also said he previously addressed the controversial tweets and stand-up routines, but outlets including CNN and New York Magazine's Vulture could find evidence of an apology until after Hart chose to step down.

"I shouldn't have to prove who I am", Hart said Wednesday. Shortly after, reports have floated that ABC is open to Hart returning hosting the Oscars, which have flagged in viewership over the past few years.

'If you keep feeding this energy, then it's going to grow, ' he said.

Kevin added the landscape of the world has changed now, particularly with the prevalence of social media, and he regrets the way he spoke on his Twitter page.

Hart later came to her defense, saying: 'When did we get to the point where we forgot that we all learn, then we all have the ability to grow and with that growth comes a wealth of knowledge.

Hart apologized in December for "insensitive words from my past" and told DeGeneres last week in an interview on her talk show that he does not "have a homophobic bone in my body".
