Ice Cube on Jonah Hill: We All Say Stupid Stuff!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Ice Cube and the directors of 22 Jump Street are making the media rounds this week, which means he's being asked a lot about Jonah Hill's anti-gay slur.

Not that the rap legend seems concerned by the incident. At all.

"I give people a little room to say stupid stuff," Ice Cube noted.

"We all say something stupid every now and then."

Cube says it's the paparazzi who should be taking the heat for this.

"What we really need to do is kick paparazzi in the ass," he said.

"It's extremely annoying to be sitting somewhere, and somebody's 20 feet away with a camera pointing on you and you don't know how long that camera's been on you."

Jonah Hill's apology, twice over, certainly helped him in the court of public opinion, as the actor confronted his failure head on and very sincerely.

The co-director of 22 Jump Street, Christopher Miller, called the incident "very disappointing and surprising, but it wasn't the Jonah that we know."

Hill would agree.

"Words have weight and meaning, and the word I chose was grotesque," the star said. "And no one deserves to say or hear words like that."
