"I have made the choice to step down from hosting this year's Oscars", wrote Hart, who as well as his stand-up work is the star of films like Ride Along and Jumanji.
He said: "I sincerely apologise to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words of the past". "I don't know what to tell you", Hart said.
But several of the tweets were screenshot by Twitter users like journalist Benjamin Lee and spread online, sparking an angry reaction.
Hart broke his silence Thursday in a video he posted on Instagram, in which he said he was "not going to let the craziness frustrate me or anger me".
It'd be one thing if this was a one-time tweet (Still bad, but not as bad), or if he apologized, or if he didn't call out people who were alarmed by him repeatedly using the word "gay" or "fag" in a derogatory manner.

The Block will be the dedicated area for player-created content, and players will help determine what gets featured in that area. There isn't a game that has changed as much as Fortnite and you really feel it when you sit down and look back at past seasons.
On Thursday, Hart wrote on Instagram that critics should "stop being negative" after years-old tweets surfaced in which he used gay slurs.
"I've addressed it, I've spoken on it, I've said where the rights and wrongs were, I've said who I am now versus who I was then, I've done it".
Other tweets still live on Hart's Twitter include messages like: "I just saw a n-a put a whole chicken wing in his mouth and pull it out with no meat on it!" But we hope he has a attractive day.
ET has reached out to the Academy for comment on Hart's role as Oscars host as it now stands.
It's possible the Academy will consider Hart's statements sufficiently in the past and move on, but it's tough to say what will happen next. I'm nearly 40 years old and I am in love with the man I'm becoming. "We feed internet trolls and we reward them". I'm not gonna do it, man. Even though Hart is now deleting the offending tweets, one imagines he hasn't had a change of, ahem, heart about them.
Hart's defenders are few and far between with really only his wife stepping in to say that only God can judge him. If you don't believe people change, grow as they get older, I don't know what to tell you.
