"I'm done with it".

On Wedneday, Kevin told "Good Morning America's" Michael Strahan, "No, I'm not hosting the Oscars this year".

'You know what, if they give me the call, I would do it, ' the comedian said.

The 39-year-old Hart repeatedly reiterated to Strahan on Wednesday that he is "over" talking about his old tweets and said there would be "no more conversation about it".

"I'm literally over that". "I'm over that. I'm over the moment". "If it's not, it's not [something] I can control". Some things are left out of your hands.

The academy in early January reconsidered Hart, after a controversial campaign led by former Oscars host Ellen DeGeneres.

He has faced criticism from the LGBT community over the tweets and his handling of the controversy.

After Kevin Hart bowed out following controversial tweets re-surfacing, the latest rumor claims there will be no host at all. "I'm not saying I've changed anymore". I've done it. I've done it several times. I know that I've addressed it. And I'm going to say it just in case you guys try to take this sh*t and chop it up, I will rebuttal with this f*cking piece right here. "I've done all that I can do".

'I think they're working on finding someone that's gonna be great, ' Awkwafina added on the red carpet. Further, he believes that anyone who wants to continue the discussion and won't accept the apologies that he has already made "means it's a problem with you".

"It shows me that there is no ending to it".

"It shows me that there is no ending to it", he said of the backlash.

"You will not hear me say anything else about it", he insisted during his GMA interview. "And then I say as a heterosexual male, if I can do something to stop my son ... that's where the joke starts!" In 1989, the broadcast opened with an 11-minute musical number which culminated in Rob Lowe and an actor playing Snow White singing a re-worked version of Proud Mary; a performance which Lowe has never really lived down and which ruined producer Alan Carr's career. However, as pressure built and became more heated, Hart chose to bow out of the Oscars and issued a brief apology "to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past".

"No, I'm not hosting the Oscars this year", he later confirmed in ABC interview.
