DeGeneres revealed that she had called The Academy and asked them to bring Hart back as host. With that in mind, Hart was recently asked the question by Good Morning America's Michael Strahan, to which the comedian responded with a resounding no.
"I'm over it. There's no more conversation about it ..." I'm over that, I'm over the moment, and I'm about today. An anonymous awards show and live events producer told the outlet: "The people who produce that show are hogtied by the Academy, who as a group are not willing to change very much. I don't know what you're looking for", he told Strahan on Wednesday. "You're not getting me".
"If you keep feeding this energy, then it's going to grow". "If you don't want to accept people for their change, then where are you trying to get to the equal part?" he added. In one tweet, he said he would hurt his son if he turned out to be gay: "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". Less than 48 hours later, Hart bowed out of his hosting duties after a social media mob came after him for decade-old tweets (as social media mobs do). Moreover, Variety's sources say the Academy was "furious" at what they call a "mischaracterization" of Ellen's call with them, as DeGeneres said on her show that she spoke with Academy members who said this was a big "misunderstanding" and would love to have Hart back. "It's hard to predict what can happen, and I don't want people to think there's a thing between me and the Academy, because there isn't".

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.
"I really had to dive into the whole thing - even the tweets", Hart said of the resurfaced past jokes. Following backlash and pressure from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Hart apologized to the LBGTQ community for his "insensitive words".
