Jonah Hill Apologizes For Gay Slur: I Lost My Cool ...

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Jonah Hill isn't ducking the controversy behind his gay slur whatsoever, speaking to Howard Stern on his radio show today about the mistake he made.

Fully admitting he made the hurtful quote - Hill said "Suck my d--k, you f----t" to a photographer - Jonah was both sincere and remorseful about it:

While explaining the Jonah Hill gay slur in context, he was steadfast in saying: "What I said in that moment was disgusting. I shouldn't have said that."

Hill took the blame for his remark before noting that the paparazzo had been following him around all day, saying hurtful things about his family.

Jonah noted that he's been an outspoken gay rights supporter, has gay family members and will be in the wedding party at his gay friend's wedding.

The 30-year-old actor sounded upset - at himself - and said he's happy to be the poster boy for what not to say and how words can hurt people.

Hill says he "sucks at being a famous person" and "lost his cool," but that his remark is not a reflection of his feelings toward any group of people.

Apology accepted?

I'm sure his apology cost a pretty penny from a team of writers who were paid to ensure the general public still goes to his movie this week.
what kind of excuse what have come out of his mouth if he didn't have a movie premiering this week? We all say stupid things from time to time and usually it's the things we are thinking!!!! Had he said the "N" word would everyone be as forgiving? The phrase he chose to use usually comes along with an ass beating or a Matthew Shepard style killing. Words have power and now kids think "Hey, Jonah hill can say it when he's mad. Nothing is wrong with gay bashing." Gay people are the last acceptable group of people to hate. What's a little slip of the tongue right....after all he did take a picture of himself wearing a t-shirt in support of gay rights that only had Russian words on it so English speaking people couldn't tell what it was...but hey, this classifies him as a "long time supporter of Gay rights".... let's get back to his movie that opened this week... at least that will still make money now that he has apologized.

So sick and tired of hearing Celebrities having to apologize every time they say something about either how they feel about the gay lifestyle, or for making a gay reference. The difference between making fun of or making slurs toward someone's race, is that that is truly what they were born as, and it cannot be helped and neither should it be. THAT should be embraced. But making slurs or even making comments that do not support the LBGT Community, is NOT a slur, and no one should have to support something that is chosen, or be forced either by public humiliation or peer/family/media pressure to support a group of people who think they are fantastic because they celebrate having sex with the same gender. That is not a race and it is not a culture it's a deviance that has pushed every boundary and broke almost every barrier all due to what.....sex. Filthy filthy filthy sex in the most unnatural and perverted way. The only reason these celebrities support these LBGT Communities is to gain popularity, to increase their fan base and to be accepted. Because let's face it, if you don't accept the LBGT, if you have personal values, still believe in upholding MORALS, and refuse to allow yourself to become so entrenched with this all new popular fad of desensitization, or heaven forbid you believe in God, you are shunned, publicly humiliated (Take Kirk Cameron and Phil Robertson as just one of many examples) and verbally beheaded unless you do obeisance to the LBGT Community regardless of whether or not it offends you. You are called, a hater, a biogot, a zealot, a rightwinger, and anything else they feel necessary to call you, all because you don't support them. I look forward to the day when the LBGT Community and their supporters will make public apologies to us for bashing us, the ones who do not share, uphold, celebrate or condone their chosen lifestyle, and apologize for forcing it in our faces and down our throats. It's ok to force it into movies, (Wolf of Wall Street- Absolutely vile and disgusting!) and force it into our T.V programs, and schools but we have to sit there with our hands tied behind our backs, our mouths taped shut and have this filth rubbed in our faces! Yet you so much as say "I don't agree with gay marriage, or the gay lifestyle" and they will burn you at the stake! So sick of the LBGT Community running to Mommy Media every single time someone calls them a name! Guess what, if you look like a clown and act like a clown, you're going to be called a clown! Accept it! If you don't like being called gay or names, then go get help and don't be gay! Quit forcing it on everyone, and you won't get backlash! The hypocrisy of Hollywood is gut turning. The only reason they support the LBGT Community or say they do, is to gain a larger fan base, to remain popular and accepted by everyone. Just because your family member is gay, doesn't mean you have to agree with it or support it! How many people support their family members who are alcoholics??? Drug addicts?? Pedophiles??? Prostitutes?? Swingers?? I don't see these ones out there raising a beer bottle to the alcoholics, or a syringe or pill bottle to the drug addicts, or a teddy bear to the pedophiles or a leather mini skirt to the prostitute or anything like that so why should this be the same???? Newsflash! It's ok not to support what your family/friends do! It's ok not to be okay with it! Can you still love them? Absolutely! But support them? No. This has got to stop! This constantly apologizing for not agreeing or supporting the gay community. They don't give a damn who they offend, going as far as bashing Christians and God, because God doesn't agree with or condone their chosen lifestyle, but constantly condemns and states it to be "a disgusting unnatural thing", and making their own rules and 'facts.'. The biggest load of B.S is the "born this way" excuse. All so they are not accountable or their actions, or responsible for their lifestyle. PATHETIC! Everyone knows, they know, I know, you know that NO ONE IS BORN GAY. It's a cop out, and this Generation's biggest load of B.S to get away with deviance. I am not a Religious person, I am just a normal fabulous heterosexual mother married to an amazing man, and it sickens me to constantly see and hear of people having to bow to the LBGT Community. It's time THEY apologized for being self-righteous egotistical brainwashing assholes that want everything their way or the highway!

@ Sick of LBGT

for someone SO sick of LGBT, you sure seek it out and think about it WAY WAY WAY too much, sister! And for someone not "Religious", you sure do have a lot of opinions about what God thinks! You are what one calls a BS artist! You are fake, and you are demented. Your long rant against gays shows your hate. I've never seen such a long rant that is unprovoked by another's comment! CUCKOO! Get some help.

I didn't read any hate here from So sick, I read frustration. But your comment about her 'rant' just supports everything she said. It's not acceptable to not be in agreement with homosexuality, it's not even tolerated to have an opinion different from the entire movement. As you have proven. Sorry but I don't agree with you. She said you can love the person but you don't have to support them in something that goes against your moral or personal code. How on earth is that hate?? Or is it 'hate' because it's not what you or anyone else on the rainbow bandwagon want to hear? All I have to say about this is Jonah doesn't have to fall all over himself. A simple "sorry" is fine. But I do agree with So sick, he's an Actor and has a fan base that he has to cater to. Even if that was his true feeling, there is no way he will let that be known. He would have to do and say everything needed to cover his ass. So true.

Dale, her type, the ones with malice in their heart, have the indecency to blanket smear all LGBTQ people as faithless anti-Christian(or any other faith), and for that, God (in my opinion, that is Jesus Christ) is who her type must answer to for saying gays can't be Christians! Her bashing of the gay people as godless above is the essence of sick dogmatic judgment, even if she claims she's not religious. Because, she sure behaves like one, I bet she had saliva running down her lips writing that massive rant, just look at it! goodness gracious...
