Kevin Hart confirms he will not host the Oscars

"I'm not giving no more explanation of who I am, I'm just done". NOTHING. I work hard on a daily basis to spread positivity to all....with that being said.

"If you didn't [hear the apology], I don't know what you're looking for", Hart said. "I love to love - if you don't see that, then that means it's a problem with you..."

While speaking on the red carpet of the National Board of Review Awards on Tuesday night, Awkwafina, 30 (real name Nora Lum), said she'd host, if asked. "I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past". I apologized after that apology.

"We thought it was okay to talk like that [in the past], because that's how we talked to one another", Hart explained. This is wrong now.

Kevin Hart speaks at Morehouse College on September 11, 2018 in Atlanta. For instance, LGBTQ advocate and journalist Don Lemon criticized Hart's appearance on Ellen and said he believes the actor can use his celebrity to be a voice of change against homophobia. I swear I wish you guys could see/feel/understand the mental place that I am in.

When asked to, once again, address the issue that remains a trending topic on social media, the comedian dodged most of Strahan's questions by repeatedly saying he is "done with it". "I can't do that right now", Hart continued.

Powell: Fed can be patient as US economy evolves in 2019
The Fed has projected two more rate hikes, but Powell is now signaling the Fed will be "patient" on any further hikes. Clarida repeated Powell's assertion earlier in the day that monetary policy was not on a preset course.

"I've done it several times and I've tweeted it, I've talked about it when I went on Ellen and on the radio show - I'm just done".

Hart withdrew from the Oscars in December after receiving criticism for his past homophobic jokes.

In an emotional interview last Friday, DeGeneres revealed to Hart that she lobbied the Academy for him to be brought back. "This is not the first time this has come up. I'm not addressing it anymore". "I have nothing else to prove".

Despite the intense backlash behind the Academy's first-choice host, Kevin Hart, the show must go on. "It's all they ever wanted him to do, and he's doing it in spades".

The Oscars host debacle has come to a surprising end, it appears. "You can't let them destroy you and they can't destroy you because you have too much talent".

Previously, Lemon called on Hart to be a supporter of the LGBT community. "I'm going to be me; I'm going to stand my ground".
