'I wonder if there was any backlash here?' Nick Cannon digs up old tweets in which Amy Schumer and Chelsea Handler both used homophobic language, after Kevin Hart loses Oscar gig for doing the same

Nick Cannon digs up past homophobic tweets from female comedians in support of Kevin Hart

  • Nick Cannon reignited controversy by digging up old homophobic tweets from Amy Schumer and Chelsea Handler in defense of fellow comedian Kevin Hart
  • Hart  stepped down as host of the 2019 Oscars amid backlash for anti-gay tweets he posted in 2009 and 2011
  • Cannon questioned whether Schumer and Handler faced similar criticism for controversial tweets they posted
  • Hart took to the stage in Australia on Friday, where he broke a comedy record
Kevin Hart is asked by Academy to apologize for homophobic tweets
Hart's offensive tweets were posted nearly a decade ago and were well known, but it's current backlash has booted him out of the host gig this year.

In 2018, an unsavory social media post can cost someone their job.

Playing with fire: Chelsea Handler wrote in 2012: 'This is what a f*g bird looks like when he flexes'

Hart stepped down as host of the 2019 Oscars on Thursday.'I have made the choice to step down from hosting this year's Oscars,' he tweeted.   

'This is because I do not want to be a distraction on a night that should be celebrated by so many amazing talented artists. I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past. 

'I'm sorry that I hurt people. I am evolving and want to continue to do so. My goal is to bring people together not tear us apart. Much love & appreciation to the Academy. I hope we can meet again.'

In 2011, Kevin wrote in a since-deleted tweet: 'Yo if my son comes home & try's 2 play with my daughters doll house I'm going 2 break it over his head & say n my voice ''stop that's gay.''  

And during his 2010 stand-up comedy special, Seriously Funny, he was quoted saying that one of his 'biggest fears' was that his sons would grow up to be gay.

'Keep in mind, I'm not homophobic,' Hart said during the routine. 'I have nothing against gay people, do what you want to do, but me, being a heterosexual male, if I can prevent my son from being gay, I will.'

OSaturday, a clip from Conversations With Ed Gordon was obtained by TMZ where the host grilled Hart over backlash he'd recently gotten for a joke regarding black women. 

'You drew a line at homosexuality, why didn't you draw a line at women of color,' asked Ed Gordon from the 2014 interview.

'Here's why I drew the line at homosexuality,' began Hart. 'Homosexuality right now is in a place where...it's not a joke to them. And I don't even like to use the word "them". The words and terms used at a certain time are considered slander. Are considered violent terms.

'Due to the fact of all the hate crimes that have been had, all the verbal attack that people have had... It's blown up to a bigger thing. So I personally don't think it's funny. I don't joke about it. I don't want that problem. I don't need any enemies.'

'It could stop a career,' interrupted Gordon. 

'What! It could stop a career?' Hart said in shock. 'It could throw you under the bus! You could be in that check cash line. I don't want that problem' 

'I get why it is a serious thing. I don't mess with it.'

The Academy Awards is yet to comment on Hart's departure.

Hart did say, however, that the academy told him to apologize publicly or he'd lose the gig. He chose to bow out on his own, without an apology.

All eyes are now turned to the Academy to choose another host.

Many keep coming back to Whoopi Goldberg, who has hosted the awards four times. Others have suggested Ellen DeGeneres, who hosted one of the Oscars' highest-rated shows, or Tom Hanks, who has a longstanding academy relationship.

Keegan Michael-Key and Jordan Peele, Will Smith or Lin-Manuel Miranda are other names in the mix.

Busy Phillips threw her own name out there tweeting: 'I AM AVAILABLE.'

She also suggested Issa Rae, Sarah Silverman, Ali Wong, Samantha Bee, Robin Thede and Aisha Tyler, or 'any other woman working in Hollywood right now who wants to.'

But the film academy will need to move quickly as the 91st Oscars ceremony is less than three months away slated for February 24, 2019.

caribmama thats to carry their agenda and to strengthen their groups they dont care about blacks or indians but moatly blacks thays why they always sympathizing with the homocaits victims but never slavery, as sad as it is many of you may not know before obama left office in February of 2012 he passed a bill to set extra funding for the holocaust victims but give nothing to blacks especially the victims of black wall street thats why i never favored him, but black people make excuses for him when you ask yhem how come obama never did anything special for black people they say he cant be president for one race but dont realize he was President for the gay and the Jews community they all hot what they wanted black people dont have any pne who cares about that or to represent them so no one cares thats why negros in hollywood or the work place will always have to apologize or bowdown to a white person they will always do as they say i call it forever servants never free

You are totally right Mr1Stroke. If you go after gays or Jews, they will destroy you. Remember the temple shooting. After that shooting they had classes showing school kids the holocaust video to sympothise for them. A lot of these kids knew nothing about holocaust. But do they have classes showing the genocide of the American Indians or The African Slaves? Do they have classes of cops killing out black relatives? How many mass shootings have we had already? Are we playing videos of all the mass shootings all over the United States so we can have sympathy for those victims? But we suppose to sypothise for the Jews. They even telling people to join their Temple. Man please!
