Following Jonah Hill’s apology on The Howard Stern Show for homophobic language used towards a paparazzo last weekend, his 22 Jump Street co-star Channing Tatum has spoken out on the incident, calling it “unfortunate”.
“I think it’s awkward for him, obviously. I think people can tell that he didn’t mean that,” said Channing.
“It was just a thing in a hateful moment, when someone was being hateful to him, and he said probably the most hateful thing he could think of, not even thinking.
“It was unfortunate.”
