So, is Howard Stern's show the go-to place for apologies to LGBTs? And are F-bombs the go-to response to paparazzi who get under your skin? (Another Hollywood guy got caught doing the same thing about a month ago, I can't recall who.)
BilericoActor Jonah Hill, a two-time Academy Award nominee and an outspoken LGBT ally, hurled a homophobic slur at a paparazzo over the weekend.
The photographer was part of a group of paparazzi following Hill down the street. He made fun of Hill's outfit (the actor was wearing a polo shirt, floral print board shorts, neon green sneakers, and a baseball cap), then continued tailing Hill for several more seconds before saying goodbye. At that point, an obviously frustrated Hill replied, "Suck my d*ck, you f*gg*t."
This morning, Hill owned up to the incident and apologized on the Howard Stern Show. "I'm upset, because... from the day I was born, and publicly, I've been a gay rights activist," he said.
Rough timing with his big movie out there. Apology's sort of the "Sorry I got caught!" variety, but Jonah will probably get the ol' "pass."
