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.
