He stood down as the host of next year's Oscars after he was accused of homophobia

Kevin Hart has apologised to the LGBT community after pulling out of hosting the Oscars next year.

The American comedian was only revealed as the ceremony's host on Tuesday.

Three days later he stepped down.

He's been accused of homophobia after tweets between the years 2009 and 2011 were highlighted.

Kevin Hart insists he's "changed and evolved" since then but says he doesn't want to be a distraction on the night.

No replacement has been announced yet.
