Jonah Hill has apologized for using a homophobic slur at a paparazzi last weekend.
Walking in LA with a friend, the 22 Jump Street actor was fed up with being followed and shouted at cameramen, "Suck my d**k, you f****t,".
Jonah has since apologized for his poor choice of words on the Howard Stern Show, saying: "This is a heartbreaking situation for me,”
"I'm upset because from the day I was born, and publicly, I've been a gay rights activist. Now, this person, you saw a 40-second video. This person had been following me around—just to give it some context, not excusing what I said in any way—this person had been following me around all day, had been saying hurtful things about my family, really hurtful things about me personally, and I played into exactly what he wanted and lost my cool," said Hill, who has worked with the Human Rights Campaign.
"Now what I said in that moment was disgusting and a hurtful term. I should have either said nothing or just 'f--k you.' instead I used a word that I don't use in my personal life," Hill added on SiriusXM's radio show.
"It's not part of my vernacular. 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 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."
