Jonah Hill appeared on the Howard Stern Show publicly apologizing for hurling a gay slur at paparazzi over the weekend.
Hill was captured saying, “Suck my d***, you f*****!”
This morning, Hill told Stern, “I’m upset, because, from the day I was born, and publicly, I’ve been a gay rights activist.”
“I said a disgusting word, that does not at all reflect about any group of people,” Hill said. “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, and how those words – even though you don’t intend them — they are rooted in hate, and that’s bulls*** and I shouldn’t have said that.”
Hill added that he is “pretty good at making movies” but not “good at being a famous person.”
“What I said in that moment was disgusting and a hurtful term… Instead I use a word I don’t use in my personal life, it’s not part of my vernacular. I’m happy to take the heat for using this disgusting word… It would break my heart for anyone to think I would be against anyone for their sexuality.” source
