I hope this does not open the door for another Kimmel hosting gig.

I know his name is not as big as it use to be but why not Conan O' Brien or get a actor like Hugh Jackman?

Please, it's not like ABC/Disney is going to make a big deal over what were clearly JOKES, however tasteless, made on Twitter years ago.

“I just got a call from the Academy and that call basically said, ‘Kevin, apologize for your tweets of old or we’re going to have to move on and find another host.’ I’m talking about the tweets from 2009 and 2010,” the 39-year-old comedian said. “I chose to pass on the apology. The reason why I passed is because I’ve addressed this several times. This is not the first time this has come up. I’ve addressed it. I’ve spoken on it. I’ve said where the rights and wrongs were. I’ve said who I am now versus who I was then. I’ve done it. I’m not going to continue to go back and tap into the days of old when I’ve moved on and I’m in a completely different place in my life.”

The Academy may have to go "old school" and get an older comedian that worked clean his entire career if they want a comedian to do this gig. Jay Leno, Jerry Seinfeld...

Just give the gig to Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Everybody will be happy with that.

Seinfeld will run into trouble too. Check out this React video where Millennials freak out over some Seinfeld episodes:

I don't blame Hart. He's already discussed the issue in length and he certainly doesn't need to host the Oscars to further his career.

PC has essentially killed comedy as any host I'm interested in seeing will not meet the sniff test for the SJW's these days. I usually don't watch the Oscars, but I was going to tune in for Kevin Hart.

How about Dave Couiler? Joey from Full House based his entire career on clean comedy.

I say they bring Gallagher out of retirement as nobody has ever been offended by him! He can smash Watermelons after each Award to keep it interesting!

Honestly, just get Ricki Gervias and call it a day. It would be the most watched Oscars.

@ Hart for stepping down. Gotta watch what you Tweet so it doesn't kick your ass later. I'm not sure why people find that so hard to understand....
