Actor Jonah Hill Yells: “Suck my dick, you faggot,” At Photographer, Apologizes – Audio

Curse

 

Jack Black Jonah Hill has apologized for yelling a homophobic slur at a photographer over the weekend.

The “22 Jump Street” star was caught on camera by TMZ over the weekend taking a stroll with a pal in Los Angeles when he lost his temper.

The 30-year-old actor turned angry at the photog following him, abruptly snapping back when he told him to have a good day.

“Suck my dick, you faggot,” Hill yelled.

Apparently the photographer was teasing Hill about his outfit choice

“I like the shorts though, bro. They are pretty sexy.” said the photog before Hill exploded.

Hill made an appearance on Howard Stern’s radio show (of all places) on Tuesday and sincerely apologized for his actions.

I’m upset, because, from the day I was born, and publicly, I’ve been a gay rights activist,” he told Stern in the audio clip.

To “give it some context, not excusing what I said in any way, this person had been following me around all day, had been saying hurtful things and I lost my cool. And in that moment, I said a disgusting word, that does not at all reflect how I feel about any group of people,”

“I’m not at all defending my choice of words but I am happy to be the poster boy for thinking about what you say, and how those words even though you don’t intend them, they are rooted in hate, and that’s bulls–t and I shouldn’t have said that.”

“What I said in that moment was disgusting and a hurtful term I should have either said nothing or f— you, instead I use a word 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 but it would break my heart for anyone to think I would be against anyone for their sexuality.


Is it really that big a big deal?  And do you think he’s ever said that to his close “buddy” James Franco?

  1. I believe his apology was sincere and I accept it. Calling someone a fagot, queer or homo is still the ultimate insult. He was angry and it came out. He regrets it and I think we should get over it.

  2. Nope, sorry but these lame excuses and apologies can’t be accepted. Lots of us get mad and annoyed all the time but never feel the need to insult an entire group of people when it happens. This sets a bad example for young people.

  3. I refuse to always be angry and bitter. You have to let go sometimes. His very apology, and sincere apology in my opinion, has set a very good example for young and all people.

  4. Again. No. To Jimmy Fallon he said it was the “worst” thing he could think of to say. Really? Murderer, pedophile or maybe rapist aren’t worse? No, to him “faggot” is the worse thing to him. This sends a horrible message to young people. He, and you Bob clearly have no idea how much that word hurts and effects young gays. And again, we all get upset sometimes but most of us can find constructive ways to deal with it. I guess we should be glad he wasn’t package or someone could have gotten shot. If we allow people to give in to impulses that’s what happens.

  5. I have lived with ugly words all my life. As have you and all people young and old. You do not know me and you can not judge me. But I will judge you. You are very bitter and angry. You need to let go. It is effecting your logic. It seems twisted to me. You seem to feel that the only way to satisfy you is to destroy Jonah Hill. Give it up or be part of the solution and not part of the angry right judging and not forgiving all people that make you unhappy. The man admitted a mistake. I forgive him whether you will or not. You’re method is very reminiscent of the Westboro Baptist Church. Don’t forgive. Just hate. Good luck. I am done with this thread.

  6. So now who is bitter and angry? To compare my logic with the WBB just shows your idiocy. And, no, you can’t judge me. You have clearly not listened to what he said in the interview so once you have done that and feel you have comprehended what he said than you can have an opinion on it. As for me being bitter and angry, well nothing could be further from the truth. But I do care about the young gay kids out there that hear the ignorant words coming from people they idolize and sink into suicidal depressions because of it. Perhaps you should get out from behind your computer and visit the real world. (I noticed you comment on a lot of things and that must take a lot of time). Once you get out there and have to deal with some of the repercussions if things like this than you can’t earn the right to comment. (I knew you would be back to read my response)

What do you think?
