Jonah Hill Called A Paparazzo A ‘F*ggot’, This Jonah Hill Right Here

The Superficial / June 3, 2014

Jonah Hill looks like this whenever he’s around Leonardo DiCaprio and makes box office bets that end with him kissing Channing Tatum’s penis which makes him one of the last people who should walk around going Alec Baldwin on the paparazzi. Which is exactly what he did over the weekend when he yelled, “Suck my dick, you faggot!” at a photographer which, in fairness, could’ve been a simple, friendly request when viewed in context. But it wasn’t, so here’s Jonah apologizing on Howard Stern this morning because everyone he’s ever known, loved to or been related is gay as shit. Please let him still work with Leo! Via Gawker:

I played into exactly what he wanted and 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 grew up with gay family members. I’m leaving here to go spend the day with one of my closest coworkers, a best friend who is gay who’s getting married who I’m going to stand at his wedding. I am 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 if you don’t intend them and how they mean, they are rooted in hate. And that’s bullshit and I shouldn’t have said that.

In Jonah Hill’s defense, at least he realized what he did was wrong instead of going, “It’s just a word! South Park got it totally right,” which should be grounds to fire someone into the sun. Because, listen, saying faggot is almost as bad as saying nigger now that we’re very, very, depressingly slowly evolving as a species, and it’s the insult of choice for shitheads. And I say that as someone who used to fling it around in his younger years because I was a stupid shithead like everyone under 25. There’s no fucking need for it, and there are better ways to get your point across like publishing red carpet photos of Jonah Hill palpably wishing he could eat Leonardo DiCaprio’s penis like a giant cup of Froyo on your Internet blog. Use your mind, kids.
