This week, the liberal community directed its outrage at comedian and actor Kevin Hart. Hart gave up the position of host for the 2019 Oscars just two days after being asked, after critics dug up some of the comedian’s old controversial tweets and comments.
After that debacle, Fox News meteorologist Janice Dean suggested canceling the Oscars altogether. “Why not just cancel the #oscars altogether? Would anyone really miss it?” she asked on Twitter.
More Political Correctness
After the Jumanji star was named as the host to the Oscars, the liberal hit squad started digging into his past to see what they could find.
What they came up with were tweets from nearly a decade ago that were deemed to be homophobic.
Hart immediately came under attack, but he did not break, at least initially.
As the outrage grew, Hart simply said he was not going to apologize.
“I chose to pass on the apology,” Hart said in an Instagram video. “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.”
But hours later, Hart bowed to the pressure, issuing an apology and withdrawing from hosting the Oscars.
“I have made the choice to step down from hosting this year’s Oscar’s….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,” Hart wrote on Twitter.
“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,” he added in a followup tweet.
Cancel the Show
As a solution, Janice Dean suggested canceling the event altogether.

Before the annual Hollywood awards show became political, it generated roughly 55 million viewers.
Compare that to last year’s edition, which had less than 30 million viewers.
The lead up to the show made it quite apparent it was going to be nothing more than a parade of actors lecturing regular Americans on how they should live their lives and shaming anyone for supporting Trump and/or being a conservative.
Liberal Hollywood seems to forget half the people in this country support Trump, and they managed to alienate them all based on the declining viewership.
Hart’s replacement will no doubt be a liberal who toes the line, which will mean more Trump bashing and more than likely, even fewer viewers than when Jimmy Kimmel hosted the show last year.
