Hollywood star Nick Cannon took to Twitter recently to call out Hollywood's hypocrisy following the backlash comedian Kevin Hart received causing him to step down as host of the Oscars.

**WARNING: Strong Language**

According to The Daily Wire:

Comedian Nick Cannon came to the defense of his friend Kevin Hart Saturday, striking back at "woke" comedians who demanded Hart step down from his position hosting the Oscars awards ceremony by revealing their individual histories of making "homophobic" and "problematic" comments on Twitter.

Hart stepped down from hosting the Oscars on Friday, after pro-LGBTQ activists revealed that Hart had written "homophobic" tweets in the past about what he might do if his son turned out to be gay.

Hart initially refused to apologize for his past tweets, claiming that they were immaterial to his current career, but eventually caved to pressure, announcing late last week that he was "sorry" for his behavior and that he would not be hosting the Oscars, so as to "not be a distraction" from the Hollywood awards ceremony.

That's when Cannon stepped in, posting to his own Twitter feed examples of "homophobic" tweets from some of Hollywood's most recognizable "woke" names: Amy Schumer, Sarah Silverman, and, of course, Chelsea Handler.

  Cannon stated that he does not want the comics to have to apologize but just wanted to bring to light the hypocrisy he sees. Hart faced backlash while so many others did not.
