Jonah Hill, an actor best known for telling poop jokes and making fart noises in cinematic masterpieces such as Superbad, Knocked Up, and This Is the End, yelled a homophobic slur at a photographer in Los Angeles yesterday afternoon.
“Suck my dick you faggot,” he said.
Hill used the extremely offensive slur in response to the photographer’s compliment on his disgusting outfit. As you can see in the video, Hill is sporting an unwashed polo shirt with his floral K-Mart sale rack board shorts — the photographer is apparently a fan of this look, because he says “I like the shorts though, bro. They are pretty sexy.”
The paps followed Hill around the corner and wished him a good day. That’s when Hill, perhaps believing he was no longer being filmed, requested that the photographer “suck his dick” before calling him a “faggot.”
Jonah Hill is no friend to the gays, though TMZ would like you to think so. They point to a celebrity bandwagon campaign he jumped on in 2013 to condemn anti-gay legislation in Russia ahead of the 2014 Winter Olympics as proof that he is “pro-gay rights” — he tweeted a picture of himself wearing a shirt that read “Love Conquers Hate in Russia.”
Gee, thanks for all the support, Jonah!

Update: Jonah Hill offered what he believes to be an “apology” during the Howard Stern Show this morning. He alleges that he is “a gay rights activist,” justified saying “faggot” because photographers were “saying hurtful things” to him, and plays the “I have gay friends” card at least three times:
