Kevin Hart is getting some support from Australian fans and fellow comedians in the wake of stepping down as Oscars host following his refusal to apologize for his previous homophobic comments and tweets.
Hart returned to the stage for the first time since resigning late Thursday from his role as host of the 2019 Academy Awards, performing stand-up shows in Sydney, Australia, on Friday and Saturday.
The 39-year-old actor posted about the performance in a NSFW video on Instagram Saturday. “Two sold-out shows in Sydney, Australia and I gotta tell you, I’m (expletive) blown away,” he said in the video.
“All I can say is WOOOOOOOOW…..Thank you so much Sydney Australia,” he captioned the video. “Making the world laugh is forever a priority. Blessed to be able to bring laughter on a international level & do what I love!!!!”
