Jonah Hill has landed himself in serious trouble after using a homophobic slur against a photographer.
The Wolf of Wall Street actor was walking in the Larchmont area of Los Angeles when he was followed by a paparazzo.
In the TMZ video, the photographer can be heard slagging Jonah about his shorts, saying: “I like the short though, bro. They are pretty sexy.”
A few minutes later, he wishes the actor a good day, to which Jonah is heard replying, “S*** my d***, you f****t.”
Though Jonah’s face is not seen in the shot when the slur is shouted, it has been reported that the voice it is that of Jonah Hill.
Hmm, we know it’s never easy to deal with paparazzi, but surely this wasn’t the wisest reaction.
Update: Jonah Hill has issued an apology for his use of a homophobic slur, saying: “What I said in that moment was a disgusting and a hurtful term. Instead, I use a word I don’t use in my personal life, it’s not part of my vernacular. I’m happy to take the heat for using this disgusting word … It would break my heart for anyone to think I would be against anyone for their sexuality.”
Jonah also said that he had been followed by the paparazzo in question all day and is upset with himself for losing his cool.
Do you think Jonah’s apology is enough?
