Hart was forced to withdraw after refusing to apologize for his tweets that were deemed to be anti-gay.
“I have made the choice to step down from hosting this year’s Oscar’s, this is because I do not want to be distraction on a night that should be celebrated by so many amazing talented artistes,” he wrote on his Instagram
Hart revealed that the Academy had given him an ultimatum to apologize or they would seek a new host.
