Kevin Hart backs out of hosting the Oscars


JOINING US NOW, RAYMOND ARROYO, BEST-SELLING AUTHOR OF THE WILL WILDER SERIES. ALL RIGHT, KEVIN HART WAS SET TO HOST THE ACADEMY AWARDS, WHAT HAPPENED THERE?>>LORETTA, THE ACADEMY AND ABC WANTED JUST WHAT THEY DID IN THE CASE OF ROSEANNE BARR, A LARGER-THAN-LIFE EDGY ACT THAT WOULD DRAW A BIG AUDIENCE. BUT WHEN CONTROVERSY FOLLOWED THEY RAN FOR THE EXITS. GOING BACK TO 2010, THIS IS A BIT OF KEVIN HART’S ACT. YOU KNEW WHAT THEY KNEW WHAT THEY WERE GETTING INTO.>>ONE OF MY BIGGEST FEARS IS MY SON GROWING UP AND BEING. IF I COULD PREVENT HIM FROM BEING, I WILL. EVERY KID HAS A MOMENT, BUT WHEN IT HAPPENS, YOU HAVE TO NIP IT IN THE BODY, STOP IT RIGHT THERE.>>NOW, HE ALSO WROTE SIMILAR TWEETS AND OVER THE YEARS ABC ON THE ACADEMY HAD TO KNOW THIS. NOW THEY FIRED A DIRECTOR REMEMBER A FEW YEARS BACK FOR MAKING AN ANTI-GAY SLUR ON TWITTER AND YOU WILL REMEMBER WHY THEY PROBABLY HIRED KEVIN HART, IS A BELOVED AFRICAN-AMERICAN PERFORMER IN THIS AGE OF OSCAR’S WHITE, AND YOU REMEMBER HE’S SIDED WITH THE NFL KNEELERS AND TOLD THE PRESIDENT “TRUMP, SUCK IT.” THE ACADEMY LOVED HIM UNTIL THE HOLLYWOOD AND THE COMMUNITY STARTED PUSHING BACK ON SOCIAL MEDIA CALLING HIM HOMOPHOBIC AND ANTI, AND THEY REACHED OUT TO HIM. WATCH.>>I JUST GOT A CALL FROM THE ACADEMY AND THE CALL BASICALLY SAID, KEVIN, I APOLOGIZE FOR YOUR TWEET, OR WE WILL HAVE TO MOVE ON AND FIND SOMEBODY ELSE. SO I PASSED. THE REASON WHY I PASSED IS BECAUSE I HAVE ADDRESSED IT SEVERAL TIMES.>>HE SAID HE WOULDN’T APOLOGIZE. APOLOGIZE, BUT EVENTUALLY HE DID BUT ABC WHICH IS THE NETWORK INVOLVED IN THE ACADEMY AWARDS, THEY DID NOT LEARN THEY OF ROSEANNE BARR LESSON WHICH IS WHEN THE PC DOGMA MAKES MOVES ON YOU, STAND FIRM. YOU CAN GET PEOPLE TO APOLOGIZE FOR OUTRAGEOUS THINGS BUT YOU CAN’T COLLAPSE AND THROUGH YOUR TALENT OVERBOARD OR COMEDY, THE LANE FOR COMEDY WILL NARROW. GIVE PEOPLE AN OPTION.>>Laura: WHAT DID WE PLAY LAST NIGHT FROM JERRY SEINFELD WHEN HE WAS ON?>>WE HAVE ANOTHER ONE. WATCH THIS. COMEDY IS BY NATURE DANGEROUS.>>AND IN THAT CLIP OF KEVIN HART, IT SOUNDS LIKE HE IS A SELF CHARACTER. IT’S COMEDY. YOU DON’T BELIEVE WHAT HE IS SAYING, I UNDERSTAND WHY PEOPLE WOULD SAY, THAT’S NOT — AND I GET IT BUT THE IDEA THAT — OF COURSE IT’S NOT THE WAY HE FEELS.>>WATCH THIS, SEINFELD.>>I DO THIS JOKE ABOUT, PEOPLE FEEL THEY NEED TO JUSTIFY THEIR CELL PHONE AND I NEED TO HAVE IT WITH ME. WHILE THEY DON’T SEEM VERY IMPORTANT THE WAY YOU SCROLL THROUGH THEM LIKE A FRENCH KING. AND THEY THOUGHT, WHAT DO YOU MEAN? WHAT ARE YOU DOING, WHAT DO YOU MEAN? AND I THOUGHT, ARE YOU KIDDING ME?>>THIS IS THE PROBLEM, EVERYBODY IS SO SENSITIVE. WE NEED TO HAVE OUR FOIBLES SO
