Jonah Hill on homophobic slur: ‘Oops, shouldn’t have said that’

jonah hill

So, you know how Jonah Hill took a paparazzo’s joking comments about his shorts to the next level by calling the guy a faggot and losing his damn mind? Yeah, oopsies on that one. He apologized on the Howard Stern Show yesterday, and it was somewhat heartfelt… until he started playing the “I have gay friends” card. He actually told Howard that he was spending that very day with his gay friend who’s getting gay married soon. Uh… fuck off. He also claims that the paparazzo had been following him all day and saying mean things about his family. Which, of course, would make anyone want to use a homophobic slur.

Here’s the whole thing, if you’d like to listen:

I do think it’s nice that he apologized and copped to it and didn’t try to deny that he actually said it, etc. And I do think he maybe feels pretty sorry for it – especially if he does have a lot of gay people in his life and, you know, if he’s a decent person. I just hope this situation has maybe helped him think a little more about what he’s doing and how he speaks.

  • look people aren’t perfect far from it but he said it and he apologized because and only because there was a backlash. When was the last time you heard someone come out and say nobody knows this but last week I called someone a f@ggot and I want the world to know I’m sorry that’s not who I am I am a big supporter of gay rights …….

  • He apologized just to shut up the non-stop whining from the PC crowd. It would be like being in the midst of a cloud of mosquitoes – annoying but ultimately harmless.

  • Jonah hill is pretentious as hell… I am an avid stern listener and I have heard him defend his Hollywood friends, he did the thing that stern gates and wouldn’t talk about a girl he was dating, and he was telling a story on stern about a girl who auditioned for 22 jump street who was on a television show and when Howard asked what show he said,” I don’t know, I don’t watch tv” fuck off!!!!!
