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.

  1. I say “vaginally challenged.”

  2. Maybe the paparazzo lost a bet to him, then happened to drive by on a Harley. It’s plausible.

    As a guy of a certain age, I definitely through around that insult as a kid, and it wasn’t so much a slur as it was a general-purpose insult, like asshole. So I can slightly sympathize with Hill because, if angry enough, I could see myself defaulting back to that and throwing it out there.

    On the other hand, Hill’s clearly a douche that thinks dropping a few pounds and being Leo’s sidekick in a shitty movie elevates him to some rarefied place, so he can take his “but I have gay friends!” apology and stick it up his ass.

  4. Does the spam filter flag comments with the f-word? (No, not fuck, the other f-word.) I hope it does, because I’d love to see the homophobes get all butthurt (ha!) because they can’t use that slur now, either. “Why can’t I say fa–ot, Fish? What about my freedom of speech? First Amendment! Is there ANY part of the Constitution you libtards won’t wipe your ass with?”

    • It does indeed. I’ll ready the popcorn.

      • What if you’re talking about a bundle of sticks, or you’re a Brit talking about a cigarette?

      • Spot-on, mate. I’m always on about smoking a pack of fags… guvna.

      • Sorry I’m late, you guys. I was working out back. There was a big crash out there this morning, gave me a spook. Turns out the tree where the coon lives had come down. I cut off the side branches, bound ‘em up, and hauled the faggots out of there, but then some gook got in the chainsaw jig, and it went queer and put a chink in the guide bar, so I had to nigger off the main trunk. Big mess. It’ll be a beaner if I can clear it by tomorrow. I should’ve had them yank that tree out last summer. You have to nip these things in the bud.

      • You must be famish after all of that. Have some crackers.

      • Gee, thanks, man. Let me just set down my spade.

      • “Ciggy” is an acceptable alternate. It has the preciousness and quasi-effeminacy intrinsic to being British without the baggage of its also meaning something derogatory.

      • Monty Python

        Then you can shove either or both up your arse.

      It’s not a first amendment issue, because that only applies to the government blocking freedom of expression. SpinMedia, a non-governmental entity, is allowed to decide what content they want to publish on their website. There are plenty of forums for expression, homophobic or otherwise. That said, it’s still valid to question such choices.

      As usual, I’m not upset with the word. Even though I very rarely use it myself, even back when I was a kid, before I even really understood what it meant. Of course, I assume you all know Louis CK’s bit (in “Chewed Up”) about it and hopefully you know the scene from his series with Rick Crom at the poker game. I think those two things covered all that needs to be said on the issue (and about all slurs, in general). Although Carlin had some nice thoughts on dirty words as well.

      I do use “cocksucker” as an insult, and will continue to do so. Even though getting a blowjob can be incredibly glorious, and therefore it shouldn’t be considered a bad thing to do, it’s taken as a terribly emasculating term for a straight male and has a really nice ring to it as a general insult. It’s the counterpart to “motherfucker”. But, by the logic expressed here about Hill, “cocksucker” should be equally off limits. You know, slippery slope and all…

      What you should actually get pissed at Jonah Hill for is his hatred of the paparazzi. If he doesn’t like being the subject of public scrutiny, then he can just fuck right off and stop turning in mediocre performances in only mild entertaining (at most) movies. If he wasn’t in movies, nobody would be taking pictures of the fat fuck. All these celebrities who make exorbitant sums for simply reading words that someone else wrote while another person tells them how to read them and a team of people control all aspects of the image have no right to be left alone in public. If they want to be left alone, let them stock shelves at a Walmart, they will be forgotten quickly, and replaced by one of the thousands of equally “talented” people sucking producer dick around Hollywood.

      Freedom of speech only applies to the government not suppressing your speech.

      It does not mean freedom from criticism from other people who don’t like what you say. It does not mean private companies can’t decide what speech they choose not to associate with.

      Learn about the first amendment before you rail against people violating it. You don’t even understand what you’re mad about.

      • Maybe re-read my comment and notice that I wasn’t saying that, I was mocking the people who make that claim. #ReadingIsFundamental

      • Somebody finally got some education on that point and is now looking for any opening to slam someone upside the head with that newfound knowledge. C’mon, who needs to actually read all the stuff you wrote after “First Amendment”?

        Seriously, it’s like getting a brand new Batman outfit and being compelled to wear it everywhere, even if it’s not always appropriate.

    Hill’s becoming an asshat, just like all the other up and comers. What is it about success that makes “famous” (no matter how meagerly famous they are) people become such gigantic douche bags? Fuckin’ celebrities…your shit stinks just like the rest of us commoners…get the fuck over yourselves!!

  6. anonymous

    How many times has that pap refer to sucking another man’s dick because Jonah Hill talks about sucking dick in EVERY movie he makes and he talks about kissing Tatum’s tip off camera.

  7. cc

    Hey, all is forgiven Jonah…the cinematic masterpiece ’22′ is coming out this summer.

  8. I gotta say I find more than a little irony in today’s “Good Morning” posting including the link to calling bullshit on “Trigger Warnings”, and now we’re talking about how hurtful simple words are for our delicate psyche.

    Personally, I’d prefer if as a society we could all just grow the fuck up and stop pretending that some collection of syllables like “faggot” has the effect of a Harry Potter curse, making us all break down into uncontrollable sobbing.

    I care a hell of a lot more that the force of law is used to enforce religious based discrimination against clearly defined groups of people than I am that Jonah Hill’s vocabulary of insults hasn’t improved since 5th grade.

    The South Park writers are working on an episode titled “Jonah Hilling” at this moment.

  10. Boy, what a fucking fa … I mean, gorbellied clotpole.

  11. I’m not a homophobe–one time I was watching some porn where 2 guys were double teaming a girl. They were DPing her and their cocks touched. I didn’t freak out or anything.

  12. Jonah Hill Overly Excited To See Leonardo DiCaprio The Wolf Of Wall Street Premiere

    Commented on this photo:

    I think he’s saying “Suck my dick, you fa–ot!” right here in this picture. Then a whole lot of “Just kidding, man. NO WAY I’d ask you that, unless you wanted to. You don’t want to, do you?!? JUST KIDDING!!! I swear….”

  13. I don’t get it. Is it that bad to be a bundle of sticks? Man…people gotta lighten up.

    • I believe the implication has been that in Great Britain “faggots” were used to light fires and were burned as fuel. Somewhere in there is some convoluted logic saying that gays (faggots) are only worth burning. Or something along those lines.

  14. Donald Sterling

    A greedy Jew being prejudiced, what has the world come to?

  15. Umm, he was not insulting the guy, he literally wanted him to suck his dick. I mean, it’s Jonah Hill, we all know which way he really swings.

  16. As a gay man, I actually kind of appreciate the word. It’s helpful when the bigots and numbfucks identify themselves so readily.

  17. well at least Jonah Hill didnt eat the photographer.

  18. rican

    Damn, whatever happened to “sticks and stones….” fucking bunch of hypersensitive, emotional wreck pussies.

  19. Linda

    can’t decide if i like or loath this guy, but he definitely deserves credit for acknowledging what a shitty thing he did in using that fucked up word. he doesn’t need to get a medal for it, but it’s way better than the d sterling and paula deen school of stupid. maybe you just have to not be old as fuck to be able to step up and admit when you did wrong.

  20. Can we please get over everybody being so offended by words? Just get over it.

  21. bobby

    So you rip on Jonah HIll for using the word faggot and issuing what is probably the most sincere apology I’ve seen from a famous person, then you go ahead and imply Jonah Hills homosexuality with a negative connotation.

    Sticks and stones… they don’t go in your butt.
