With the latest debacle surrounding Kevin Hart's Twitter history, the Academy Awards has found itself in a bit of a pickle regarding a new host for its 91st annual award show.

Comedian and actor Kevin Hart was slated to host the upcoming Oscars, but some of his past tweets came back to haunt him.

Hart's Twitter history included numerous homophobic posts.

In one such tweet, Hart shared his fear about his son's sexual orientation.

"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.' "

Other tweets, all which have now been deleted, included phrases like "a gay billboard for AIDS" when describing a photo, as well as other insensitive comments like "gay by association," "no homo" and "fat faced fag".

Hart did not contain his homophobia to just his Twitter.

In his 2010 special, "Seriously Funny", he (again) discussed his son's sexuality.

"One of my biggest fears is my son growing up and being gay. That's a fear. Keep in mind, I'm not homophobic. . . . Be happy. Do what you want to do. But me, as a heterosexual male, if I can prevent my son from being gay, I will."

The controversy surrounding Hart's comments caused him to bow out as Oscar host.

Since his departure from the job, speculation of who will replace him has swirled, but the internet has solved the problem.

People everywhere have decided that the new host should be none other than the googly-eyed mascot of the Philadelphia Flyers: Gritty.

Some fans would even settle for Gritty to act as a co-host.

A petition is now circulating to get Gritty onto the stage as host for the Academy Awards.

It remains to be seen if fans will get their wish, but does Gritty even talk?

That could be a problem...

Has science gotten to a point where we can make mashed potatoes by just adding water to flakes, producing a smooth and consistent texture?

Also yes.

Because sometimes the "old way" is just better, and I'm very serious about my potatoes.
