Jonah Hill Apologizes for Homophobic Slur

I hate paparazzi as much as the next guy (not really, I’m not famous), but it’s never ok to go on a tirade of F-bombs at someone, especially when that F word is a homophobic slur.

Jonah unleashed his unholy F-bomb at the pap, but promptly apologized. You’ll get this free pass, Jonah, but that’s all. [UsWeekly]

Jonah Hill spoke to Howard Stern on Tuesday morning after the clip came to light and apologized for his actions. “What I said in that moment was disgusting and a hurtful term. I should have said either nothing, or f–k you,” he told Stern, adding that the situation is “heartbreaking” because he is a gay rights activist.

“I used a word that I don’t use in my personal life. It’s not part of my vernacular. I’m happy to take the heat for using this disgusting word. What I won’t allow… it would break my heart to think that anyone would think, especially with all the work that I’ve done and all the loved ones I have, that I would be against anyone for their sexuality.”
