The Hollywood Reporter states that Hart issued an apology for his past comments on his Straight From the Hart podcast this week.

He said: 'Once again, Kevin Hart apologizes for his remarks that hurt members of the LGBTQ community. Hart said it's something he's already apologized for and didn't want to keep saying sorry.

'We thought it was okay to talk like that [in the past], because that's how we talked to one another. This is wrong now.

In one of his 10-year-old tweets, Hart used a gay slur, and he also said he wouldn't want his son to be gay during an old stand-up routine.
