There was speculation that he might return, but on Wednesday he told ABC's Good Morning America: "I'm not hosting the Oscars this year". There is no more conversation about it.

"Once again, Keivn Hart apologizes for his remarks that hurt members of the LGBTQ community", he said. "I'm not giving no more explanation of who I am, I'm just done".

The comedian initially rejected demands to apologize, insisting he had apologized for the tweets several times before, but later said sorry again after stepping down as Oscars presenter. "I hear everything you're saying, but I want everybody to know I'm done with it". If you don't see that, then that means that's a problem with you...

"It's hard to predict what can happen". "I love The Academy, I love everybody that's involved with the process of building the Oscars and making it".

On Monday, Jan. 7, Hart went on his Sirius XM radio show to address the overall controversy.

"I've said everything I can possibly say and I'm over it".

Thoughts, Perezcious readers? Are we collectively letting go of this controversy, or does Kevin need to prove he's honest in his apology just a bit more? This is wrong now. Hart's hire was engulfed in controversy after homophobic tweets and jokes he had made earlier in his career resurfaced.

The actor's conversation with Don Lemon was then brought up, which went down after the CNN anchor delivered a passionate speech admonishing Hart's words on air over the weekend.

According to the report, some 2630 people were stung across the weekend, with nearly 1000 hurt in a matter of hours on Sunday. More than 18,000 stings were recorded in Queensland in December, three times more cases than a year ago over the same period.

Hart added that with his future standup and comedy acts, he would also make sure he doesn't say or do anything offensive towards the community.

The comedian says he wants to join the fight for equality, but encourages LGBTQ listeners to recognize when someone owns up to their mistakes and wants to grow from them. "You're talking about two weeks that I'd have to prepare..."

"The Academy, they're incredible people", he added.

Ellen, who has always been an icon in the LGBTQ community, was lampooned for throwing her support behind the comedian afterwards. "Where does the equality part come in?" "That's what I'm trying to say".

DeGeneres, who is openly lesbian, said she forgave Hart for the series of homophobic tweets and jokes.

"I think it's my best work to date", Hart said about playing an ex-con, who cares for a quadriplegic.

Just three days later, he stepped down after homophobic tweets from eight years ago re-emerged; he said he's already apologized for the tweets and that he's not the same person he was at that time.

"Despite the efforts of former host Ellen DeGeneres, Kevin Hart will not reemerge as host of the 91st Academy Awards, multiple sources are telling Deadline", the outlet reported.
