JONAH HILL LAMENTS HIS 'DISGUSTING' LANGUAGE

“This has been a heartbreaking morning,” Johan Hill revealed to Howard Stern this morning.

Earlier, TMZ released video of Jonah Hill using a homophobic slur -  what Jonah termed “a disgusting word” - in response to day-long harassment from the paparazzi. Hill, however, was not making excuses. 

Calling Howard “the perfect person to talk to about this,” Jonah faced the controversy of calling the paparazzo a "F*ggot" head on:

“I’m not at all defending my choice of words. I’m happy to be the poster boy for thinking about what you say. Those words are rooted in hate, and that’s bullshit.”

Howard, who’s had plenty experience with paparazzi, tried to console Hill and even joked about the his words profane absurdity.  But Hill accepted full responsibility for saying the wrong thing after losing his cool.

“I’m happy to take the heat for using this disgusting word….What would break my heart is for anyone to think, especially after all the work I’ve done, and all the loved ones I have,” Hill said, citing LGBT family and close friends, “that I’d be against anyone for their sexuality."

Jonah lamented that he’s just not good at being a famous person.   “I’m not saying ‘poor me.’  I’m not worried about judgment. I’m worried about hurting someone’s feelings.”
