Kevin Hart’s decision to not host the Oscars was polarizing to say the least. Many fans backed up Hart after he decided to step back instead of apologizing for the old tweets. Some people felt that Hart did the right thing while others felt a type of way about the apology. Detroit rapper Obie Trice defended Hart during a concert in Toronto while at the same time saying homophobic slurs. The MC took to Instagram to apologize to his fans for his statements.

“First of all, I want to apologize to anyone I offended out there. I understand the different perspectives and, you know, not wanting to be call any slurs,” he said before defending himself. “But I’m a hip-hop artist and everything can’t be taken so seriously. I didn’t say anything last night — the other night — to purposely offend anybody. I have no bias towards the LGBTQ+ community. The gay people I know we bullshit like that with it, that’s how we talk.”

Everything he said during his Toronto show can be seen here:

“The state’s trying to bully you into respecting this gay sh**. The state’s trying to bully you into respecting this gay sh**.” He continued, “But we supposed to respect gay and they took my man Kevin Hart. [He] had to duck down [and] get off the Oscars because of this. All he wanted to do was the mothaf*****’ Oscars.”
