Kevin Hart Is Deleting Old Homophobic Tweets After Being Announced As Oscars Host

PA
Kevin Hart’s past has come back to bite him on the ass in the form of some not-too-old tweets pertaining to homophobia.
The comedian, who is set to host next year’s Oscars ceremony, has set social media alight with such comments: ‘If I can prevent my son from being gay, I will.’
One from 2011 reads: ‘Yo if my son comes home & try’s 2 play with my daughters doll house I’m going 2 break it over his head & say in my voice “stop that’s gay”‘.
It was deleted between Wednesday and Thursday, according to BuzzFeed.

Benjamin Lee, an editor at The Guardian, first pointed out Hart’s forgotten tweets, writing ‘I wonder when Kevin Hart is gonna start deleting all his old tweets.’
Other deleted ones include, ‘U should ask the question like this, how many “gay: men sweat when they wear dress shirts because real men don’t lmao p.s fag’ and another criticises a fellow Twitter user for looking like a ‘gay bill board for AIDS.’
Adam B. Vary, a reporter for BuzzFeed, went on to search Hart’s Twitter handle with homophobic terms. What he found was jarring to say the least.

He wrote:
I did a search for every time Kevin Hart tweeted “fag,” “homo,” or “gay,”It was… a lot. And he seems to have basically stopped tweeting those words after 2011 – i.e. the year his first stand-up movie became a hit.

Don’t Run Away When The Love Feels Stale
Wednesday July 31, 2019

There are plenty of reasons why you should run away from a relationship. Because it has become toxic. Because you realized you want completely different things from your future. Because you were hurt beyond repair. Because you aren’t sure this person is meant to be your forever. But if the reason you’re thinking about running … "Don’t Run Away When The Love Feels Stale"

One commenter defended Hart’s old tweets, saying:
Is it possible that he learned, even at a late stage in life, that those terms are cruel and hurtful in a way he hadn’t previously comprehended? Is it possible for a person to change? Even my gay brother used slurs wen he was younger, until he learned better?

After seeing this @benfraserlee tweet, I did a search for every time Kevin Hart tweeted "fag," "homo," or "gay." It was…a lot. And he seems to have basically stopped tweeting those words after 2011 — i.e. the year his first stand-up movie became a hit. https://t.co/P8nTOilFgx pic.twitter.com/6uzPhnvt4F

Another said:
Blatant homophobia? Where? Are jokes not allowed in society? Should we start legally controlling language so peoples feelings are never hurt? That’s a slippery slope no one wants to go down.
One vented, however: 
How is it possible that the Academy isn’t making absolutely sure of this kinda stuff… ya know what, that’s on them! They should have to keep Kevin now and rude out the wave of backlash. Then maybe they won’t do it again.
A fourth added:
Because he’s a famous actor/comedian, he will never get banned. He has also had domestic violence accusations from his ex wife so not who the Oscars should be picking to host the show.
Hart is yet to comment on the controversial tweets.
