Kevin Hart stated that he will never host the Oscars, emphasizing that award show gigs are no longer “comedy friendly environments.”

He mentioned that the days of these events being suitable for comedians are over, expressing that there is now too much pressure on what is considered a joke.

“No, absolutely not,” Hart said. (Trending: Trump Responds To Biden’s Bombing In Yemen)

“Let’s just throw that hope right out the window right now. Whatever level of hope you have, I want to destroy it right now. No, not at all.”

“Those gigs aren’t good gigs for comics,” he added. “It’s no shot to the Oscars, the Globes or anything. Those just aren’t comedy friendly environments anymore.”

“The days of it being a room for a comic, those days are done,” he said. “There’s a lot of people who understand it. But if you’re not an industry comic, meaning a comic who has the relationship of all, then those rooms are very cold. … It’s not the gig that it was of old.”

Hart also addressed his past controversy surrounding tweets and jokes, explaining his decision to step down from hosting the Oscars in 2019.

“My team calls me, ‘Oh my God, Kevin, everyone’s upset by tweets you did years ago,’” Hart said previously.

“Guys, I’m nearly 40 years old. If you don’t believe that people change, grow, evolve as they get older, I don’t know what to tell you. If you want to hold people in a position where they always have to justify the past, do you. I’m the wrong guy, man.”

He emphasized that people change and evolve, and he chose not to apologize again for past remarks.

“I chose to pass on the apology,” he added. “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.”
