Kevin Hart is setting the record straight. He’s not hosting the Oscars, and he is not going to address the controversy over his homophobic tweets anymore.
“I’m over the moment. I’m about today,” he said in an interview with Good Morning America‘s Michael Strahan on Wednesday. “I want everybody to know: I’m done with it.”
He said he’s tired of trying to prove his character.
“No matter what you do, it may still not be received,” he said. “And you’ll find yourself in a position where you go, ‘Well, What else do you want? You want blood?'”
Hart added that he’s apologized back in the late 2000s when the comments first happened and multiple times after.
“I’m not giving no more explanation of who I am,” he added. “I’m just done.”
“If you didn’t [hear the apology], I don’t know what you’re looking for,” he continued. “I’m a good person, I love to love, if you don’t see that then it’s a problem with you.”
When asked if he is hosting the Oscars this year, he simply said, “No” and that it’s too late to prepare.
“It’s hard to predict what can happen. I don’t want people to think there’s a thing about me and the Academy,” he added. “It shows me there is no end to it,” he said. “If you keep feeding this energy, it’s going to grow.”
