It’s been all over the internet the past few days: Jonah Hill lashed out at a paparazzi and called him a homophobic slur. Of course, it was all caught on tape and it was on TMZ.
Almost immediately after it hitting the gossip news sites, Jonah apologized to fans on the Howard Stern Show.
“Publicly, I’ve been a gay rights activist…Just to give it some context — not excusing what I said in any way— this person had been following me around all day and saying hurtful things about my family, really hurtful things about me personally, and I played into what he wanted and lost my cool. In that moment, I said a disgusting word that does not at all reflect how I feel about a 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… It would break my heart for anyone to think, 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.”
He then took the chance while on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to once again apologize for his remarks.
Watch the video below. Do you think he is being sincere?
