Jonah Hill Apologizes After Saying Anti-Gay Slurs to Paparazzi

Jonah Hill was caught on camera saying anti-gay slurs at paparazzi in a new video released by TMZ.

TMZ obtained a video where Jonah Hill and two friends are being followed by several photographers. At one point, one of the photographers makes fun of Jonah Hill's board shorts saying, " I like the shorts though, bro. Those are pretty sexy." Jonah Hill continues walking in silence for a bout 40 seconds, then the paparazzi says, "Have a good day, enjoy." Hill responds, "Suck my dick, you faggot." Hill has been a proponent of LGBTQ rights and marriage equality. Last year, he told E! that he supports gay rights because  "I have tons of gay friends, gay family members. It's like saying, "why do you think people should breathe?" Earlier today, he appeared on Howard Stern and apologized. "Publicly, I've been a gay rights activist... Just to give it some context — not excusing what I said in any way— this person had been following me around all day and saying hurtful things about my family, really hurtful things about me personally, and I played into what he wanted and lost my cool. In that moment, I said a disgusting word that does not at all reflect how I feel about a group of people... 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... It would break my heart for anyone to think, especially with all the work that I've done and all the loved ones that I have, that I would be against anyone for their sexuality."
