Jonah Hill Hurls Anti-Gay Slur At Paparazzo, Apologizes On 'Howard Stern'
According to TMZ:
Jonah Hill got fed up with a photographer's comments about his outfit, and lashed out by hurling a gay slur at him, yelling ... "Suck my d***, you f*****!"
Hill was out in the Larchmont area of L.A. over the weekend when a couple paparazzi started asking questions. Hill kept silent ... even when one of the guys (not from TMZ) mocked his floral print board shorts, saying ... "I like the shorts though, bro. They are pretty sexy."
The photog followed Hill for another 40 seconds or so before wishing him a good day -- and that's when an obviously angry and frustrated Hill uncorked the homophobic slur.
Jonah's been a very vocal supporter of gay rights, and famously blasted Russia's anti-gay laws leading up to the Winter Olympics.
Hill called into The Howard Stern Show this morning to apologize for using the slur and voiced his support for the LGBT community:
"This is a heartbreaking situation for me...I'm upset...From the day I was born, and publicly, I've been a gay rights activist...This person had been following me around all day saying hurtful things. I played into exactly what he wanted and I said a disgusting word...It's bulls--t and I shouldn't have said that. I'm happy to take the heat for using this disgusting word. What I won't allow is for anyone - it would break my heart to think that anyone - especially with all the work that I've done and all the loved ones that I have - that I would be against anyone for their sexuality."
