Jonah Hill Apologizes For Homophobic Slur

Jonah Hill is speaking out after lashing out at a photographer.

"Suck my d**k, you f****t," the "22 Jump Street" star is heard telling the photographer, in a clip posted on TMZ.

The whole thing started when the paparazzi were harassing Hill on the street in Los Angeles to an uncomfortable degree, taunting and filming him, leading the very frustrated actor to hurl a homophobic slur in the camera guy’s direction. “Oh, a real bully!” the camera guy exclaims, obviously thrilled that he provoked this result.

Hill explained to Stern that the paparazzo had been following him around all day, making fun of his family and saying other terrible things — and so he snapped, using a ”disgusting and hurtful term,” and he regrets it.

“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,” Hill said. “And how those words — even if you don’t intend them in how they mean — they are rooted in hate, and that’s [expletive], and I shouldn’t have said that.”

Hill went further on “The Tonight Show” — coincidentally there to promote his upcoming movie “22 Jump Street” — looking like he was about to cry as he apologized again, saying, “My heart is broken.”

“I was genuinely hurt by this and made angry by this. And in response, I wanted to hurt him back, and I said the most hurtful word that I could think of at that moment. I didn’t mean this in the sense of the word. I didn’t mean it in a homophobic way,” Hill said. “And I think that — that doesn’t matter, you know? How you mean things doesn’t matter. Words have weight and meaning, and the word I chose was grotesque, and no one deserves to say and hear words like that.”

He goes on to say he’s been a supporter of the LGBTQ community his whole life, apologizing repeatedly.

“I’m sorry, and I don’t deserve or expect your forgiveness. But what I’ll ask is that at home, if you’re watching this, and you’re a young person especially: If someone says something that hurts you or angers you, use me as an example of what not to do.”

Like most movie fans, we here at THG love Leonardo DiCaprio.  How can you not? He's an incredible talent with an amazing body of work; by all accounts he's a super nice guy, and he's even been known to snub the Kardashians. He's basically Superman without all the snooty moralizing and we don't even begrudge him the endless string of supermodels that he bangsand dumps dates.  All that being said, we've gotta call Leo out fo ...
