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.
