Jonah Hill got fed up with a photographer’s comments about his outfit, and lashed out by hurling a gay slur at him, yelling … “Suck my d***, you f*****!”
Hill was out in the Larchmont area of L.A. over the weekend when a couple paparazzi started asking questions. Hill kept silent … even when one of the guys (not from TMZ) mocked his floral print board shorts, saying … “I like the shorts though, bro. They are pretty sexy.”
The photographer followed Hill for another 40 seconds or so before wishing him a good day — and that’s when an obviously angry and frustrated Hill uncorked the homophobic slur.
Jonah’s been a very vocal supporter of gay rights, and famously blasted Russia’s anti-gay laws leading up to the Winter Olympics.
Making rounds on the Howard Stern Show and other talk show. The actor recalled how the paparazzo in question had been following him all day, calling him names and attacking him personally until he just couldn’t take it any more.
“In response, I wanted to hurt him back, and I said the most hurtful word that I could think of at that moment,” Hill admitted.
Though he claims he didn’t mean the term in a homophobic way, the actor went on to say, “Words have weight and meaning, and the word I chose was grotesque. And no one deserves to say or hear words like that.”n
