The Oscars Will Reportedly Go Hostless For The First Time in 30 Years—And People Have Lots Of Thoughts ????

Following weeks of controversy and uncertainty over who will host the 90th Academy Awards, Variety reports there simply won’t be a host this year.

Comedian Kevin Hart dropped out of hosting the Oscars after homophobic tweets from his past resurfaced. While there’s been a recent push from celebrities like Ellen to reinstate Hart, he’s refused to take part in the ceremony. The Academy continues to receive considerable backlash over their apparent bungling of the situation.

Reports indicate Oscars producers will instead use “a crop of A-listers to introduce various segments.”

Despite repeatedly apologizing, Kevin Hart seems frustrated at the media whirlwind surrounding the latest Oscars controversy.

“It’s an onion – no matter how many times you keep peeling it, it’s just endless. There is no end to it,” said the embattled comedian to Stephen Colbert on last night’s The Late Show. 

People on Twitter are split over how the hostless ceremony should proceed. 

The unfolding drama of the 90th Academy Awards is becoming a laughingstock online.

While some have forgiven Kevin Hart, others in the LGBTQ community won’t accept his apology.

Despite all the outrage, plenty of fans have come to Hart’s defense.

But many still feel Hart could do more to apologize and make amends. 

For some, no apology or explanation will ever make up for the homophobic jokes Kevin Hart once made on Twitter.  So while fans are bummed he won’t be hosting the Oscars, his decision to sit this one out is probably the safest move.

The lesson here? Be careful what you tweet, especially if you’re a public figure.
