Yesterday, Jonah Hill appeared on Howard Stern‘s show to apologize for the recent homophobic slur he hurled at a paparazzo. He explained in the apology that he is actually a champion of gay rights, and that the photographer had been following him around all day and baiting him with insults. It seems the apologizing isn’t over just yet. He appeared on The Tonight Show to discuss it even more.
Jonah became emotional as he discussed what happened this past weekend. “Words have weight, and meaning. The word I chose was grotesque,” he said to Jimmy Fallon. “I don’t deserve or expect your forgiveness.” He looked directly into the camera to appeal to the young people at home and people who he may have hurt. Watch the video below to see how he handled the tough moment.
