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."

In an accompanying message, the actor/comedian writes, "Stop looking for reasons to be negative ... Stop searching for reasons to be angry."

"I love to Love," he writes. "I LOVE EVERYBODY.....ONCE AGAIN EVERYBODY. If you choose to not believe me then that's on you."

The controversial tweets in question were posted between 2009 and 2011. In one, Hart wrote, "Yo if my son comes home & try's 2 play with my daughters doll house I'm going 2 break it over his head & say n my voice 'stop that's gay.'" In another, he calls someone a "fat faced f-g."
