Kevin Hart Breaks Silence on Anti-Gay Tweet Controversy: "I Love Everybody"

Kevin Hart has addressed the controversy over dozens of his anti-gay tweets that resurfaced after he was announced as this year's Oscars host.

In a black-and-white Instagram video, Hart, lying in bed shirtless, says, "I swear man, our world is becoming beyond crazy. I'm not going to let the craziness frustrate me or anger me especially when I worked hard to get to the mental space where I'm at now."

He continues, "My team calls me, 'Oh my God, Kevin, this world is upset about tweets you did years ago.'"

"Guys. I'm almost 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 or explain their past, then do you. I'm the wrong guy, man," Hart says. "I'm in a great place, a great mature place where all I do is spread positivity."
