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.

Cashion Police Stubbornness is a vice we can all relate to.  To quote the line from Captain America: Civil War: ‘Even if the whole world is telling you to move, it is your duty to plant yourself like a tree, look them in the eye, and say, no, you move.’ Alas, there are times where … "Woman Refuses To Accept $80 Fine And Gets Tasered By Police"

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.

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.
