Kevin Hart received some support from Australian fans and fellow comedians after he withdrew from the Oscars for his refusal to apologize for his previous homophobic comments and tweets.
Hart returned to the scene for the first time since retiring Thursday late Thursday from his role as host of the Oscar Awards in 2019, on Friday and Saturday in Sydney, Australia, before leaving for Brisbane on Sunday night. He is next to play in the Orlando Sparco Arena on Tuesday night.
The 39-year-old actor announced on Saturday that he will perform in the Instagram video. "Two sold shows in Sydney, Australia and I have to tell you, I'm blown away," he said in the video.
"All I can say is WOOOOOOOOW ….. Thank you very much Sydney Australia," he wrote a video. "The smile of the world is forever a priority. Blessed is I able to bring laughter to the international level and do what I want !!!!"

Comedian Nick Kenen tried to defend Hart by renewing the old tweets by Sarah Silverman, Emmy Sumer and Chelsea Handler. The first one America got talent host grew three tweets from comedians, one from 2012 and two from 2010, with all tweets using homophobic slander.
"Interestingly," Twitter reported along with Tweeter Handler in 2010. "I wonder if there are any reactions here …"
He added: "And I … I love Break Ralph!!! "along with a tweet from Silverman, with whom he entertains Ruin – it's Ralph and the sequel, Ralph interrupts the Internet.
Cannon completed his twitter digging with a 2012 Tweet from Sumer, adding: "I'm just saying … should we continue?"
Kevin Klein also advocates Hart, saying comedy is different even a few years ago.
"People are joking about gay people, about the Jews, about the Afro-Americans – the times are changing, but you know, at certain times, it was the usual food for standing comedians," said Klein, 71, TMZ. "But I think Kevin Hart is very funny. Cut it down!"
Michael Bleks defended his fellow comedian, saying that black comedians "especially" made mistakes.
"Why do they give him a job without seeing him first?" Blackhead told TMZ in video. "Especially black comedians, we all said things in our life, whether it was 10, 20 years ago … at that particular moment, it's probably a hot topic for which it was supposed to talk." Back to the 80s – Eddie Murphy, Richard Prior – they made every comment about everything. We all made mistakes. There are no perfect black comedians. "
"There is a perfect black comedian who never said he is wrong, and he looks where he is," added Flexon, referring to Bill Cosby. "He's in jail!"
Hart withdrew as host only two days after the announcement that he had achieved the desired gig.
"I made the choice to retreat from the Oscar hosting this year … this is because I do not want to be a distraction of the night that so many amazing talented artists should celebrate," Hart wrote on Twitter on Thursday. "I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past."
He said that in a video posted on the Internet, he was told by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to apologize or cancel his hosting tasks. Within a couple of hours, Hart stepped back from the prestigious awards showing hosting work.
