Jonah Hill Has A New Movie And Dropped A Homophobic Slur

When you have a new movie coming out like Jonah Hill does and you have a million press appearances forthcoming to discuss said movie, you like the questions to be about the movie. Well, over the weekend Jonah assured himself that the movie would not be the only topic of discussion. Jonah was being trailed by two paps and one of them commented on Jonah's shorts. He kept at it and was probably hoping for some kind of response but didn't get it. He turned away after saying have a good day and that is when Jonah said, "Suck my d**k you fa**ott. Yeah, so not sure where that came from. Maybe he went to the Alec Baldwin school of charm. Jonah is not the nicest person in the world, but he has never lashed out at the paps quite like this. You will notice that he and Brad Pitt don't speak any longer after what Jonah did at Brad's house. He never stays with a woman very long because he treats them all like crap. Unless you can do something for Jonah he is probably not going to be very friendly. He tries to come across as friendly and just an average guy, but he isn't. I don't know whether he is homophobic or just was having a bad day, but when the words come out of your mouth so easily, it's a fair bet that you have used them before. If you get in a fight with someone, is that the word that is going to come out of your mouth? Was Jonah upset because a guy commented on his shorts? Did that make him uncomfortable? To be fair, the shorts were pretty hideous. If you want to watch the video you can click here to go to TMZ.

I hope he blows up to 300 lbs. so nobody can cast him into anything except the low-brow comedy movies.

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Bieber better send Jonah a muffin basket or something for taking the heat off him.

Count Jerkula said...

Anger management issue not an I hate gays issue. Pass.

Waiting for a ruling from rosie to see if this is acceptable use of the "f" word.

Otherwise, teasing a big guy, probably a pretty open target, says something back, good for you for getting it on film. Yay entertainment

Nutty_Flavor said...

I have to agree with the Count on this one.

Susan M said...

What did he do at Brad Pitt's house?

Katie said...

Trashed it. I guess Enty just revealed a blind. Everyone knew it was Jonah but the two guesses were split between Leo and Brad.

sandybrook said...

He trashed it while Brad was away and letting him use it for free.

Kno Won Uno said...

This guy is just not worth the effort. He's unkind and ungrateful and arrogant, all while being repeatedly cast as the caricature fat guy in every film he's ever done. It's a hefty dimension, but it's still only one. Next.

T. E. Cuz said...

um, do you even see what the writing is on these movies that he stars in? and you are getting on him for this?

the paps were probably being horribly rude and trying to instigate the reaction, which if he had filmed that, could probably claim "bullying"

Dexamyl said...

He's gross. I'm pretty sure no men or women will "suck his d*ck"...at least not without a big paycheck.

Jerry Seinfeld said...

With Count.
And, please, no apology.
So, so sick of all the apologies.

Vera L- said...

Isn't he the one whose parents are in the biz, which explains his career? He's not getting by on looks, manners or charm, that's for damn sure.

OneEyeCharlie said...

There are times when I long to see an alternate pap service, where they follow the paps around all day long; harassing and verbally mocking them. Have someone waiting outside their home. It would be interesting to see how they deal with it after several days.

a big jerk

Violet said...

We can't and shouldn't all be Hollywood conventionally attractive. That said he's not particularly lovely. Don't blame him for responding tbh though. Maybe should choose his words more carefully next time.

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

REMIX!

Ray Nicolet said...

What's the deal with apologies these days?!

Kno Won Uno said...

Sorry if my apology wasn't sufficiently apologetic. I was lying.

Murphy said...

I need a refresher on what happened at Brad's house. I very slightly remember reading that, misbehaving during Brad's party? I don't remember

aemish said...

Okay, I realize it's not PC behavior.. but back in grade school when name calling amongst peers was at it's zenith, it was not any more unusual for people to call each other faggot than it was to call each other retards... just sayin'

MeanieRhysie said...

Great! After the jerk comment, I now have 'fucking jerk, fucking jerk...' suck in my head!?

Frufra said...

Dudes, we don't say faggot or retard any more, OK? You'd think Jonah's PR people would have pounded that into his brain. You'd think that would be the topic of a full day workshop that anyone with a starring role in a movie would be required to attend. Just like how I have to go to CPR refresher training every year - just part of the job. There are plenty of tried and true expletives that are still okie-dokie: asshole, dipshit, any variant of the "F word". I'm cracking up, thinking about the workshop facilitator breaking the room up into groups to do some "appropriate curse words" exercises.

MeanieRhysie said...

Uh. Um...that would be stuck, not suck!

Pip said...

That was in grade school.

TE, paps are obnoxious. He should be used to it by now. It doesn't warrant a homophobic slur. He could've come up with an different insult like "assholes".

TalksTooMuch said...

Well, thankfully it's still TOTALLY cool to make fun of his weight, right?? Which most people do on most Jonah Hill posts. Thank gawd for that still acceptable form of shaming or all those poor paps would have to go find some new way to try and get a reaction.

aemish said...

When the word retard or retarded flies out of my mouth never once has it been in reference to the mentally challenged. Can't please everybody *shrug*

Renoblondee said...

Lol @Ray. Excellent.

aemish said...

I think people should stop being so uptight about stuff. If he MEANT it as the slur that would be one thing but in this context.. smh

Hanwi said...

I wouldn't blame him for losing his temper with paps, everybody hates them for a good reason. But I agree that the words people use in heated situations like this reveal a part of their true nature.

aemish said...

It's like getting mad at people in the UK for calling their smokes 'fags' -- everyone knows in that context they are referring to cigarettes

-P said...

Here is the blind about Brad Pitt's house revealed: http://www.crazydaysandnights.net/2013/07/blind-items-revealed_26.html

I'm sorry people pile on him because of his weight, but he's a jerk. Remember the blind where he yelled at his date for leaving him to sit alone at a sidewalk cafe table for a few minutes? What an insecure dbag.

Insecurity issues. All jokes aside, he eats his emotions.

Zeeky_Boogy_Doog said...

Charlie, I've long thought the same thing, that someone should pap the paps. The TMZ guys are on TV every day, so they especially should get followed!

That show "Just Shoot Me" had a pretty good episode like that. David Spade's character met Mark Hamill and lobbed about 500 Star Wars questions his way, wouldn't leave him alone. So Hamill started doing the same, showing up, following, driving Spade's character insane. Good stuff!

The Real Dragon said...

I agree with talktoomuch.

iheartgoss said...

I really wanted to like him when he first came on the scene, but he sure makes it hard.

Gayeld said...

@FSP. A big, fat jerk.

Alita said...

Paps are a-holes. Truism.

Slurs aren't okay. And that isn't nullified because you're having a bad day.

So. I disagree with all you Jonah-apologists! (Okay that was meant to be ironically over-emotional ... Jonah apologists heeee! ... but I mean what I said above regardless)

boomom22 said...

He's an asshole just like his asshole brother Jordan Feldstein. Runs in the family. Apparently being hung like a toddler does too.

Zoe Cialite said...

Not that it matters to him or his agents, but I had never liked him even when he was trying so hard to be nice. His nasty streak would always come out. Fat bastard who can only get either mercy _uck or coke-_uck. Gross!

Haywood Jablomee said...

Little Tuna. If you really want piss off this Walrus tell him he's much funnier when he's fat.

Haywood Jablomee said...

In the sequel to the Bible story, it looks like this time Jonah ate the whale.

Jacq said...

Brad let him stay at their house in New Orleans, while he was filming a movie. He threw a rager. Trashed it.

auntliddy said...

I think in male vernacular, from someone his age, using that wird is meant as an insult to person its saud to, not to homosexuals per se. Of course he should know better and do better, but polushed and polite he's not.

Count Jerkula said...

The PC/emo world we live in, where no one is allowed to have their feelings hurt, is what breeds loonies like the kid with the hot sister who knifed and shot them people up.

Count Jerkula said...

Liddy is correct. When I grew up, Fagit was the word to use in between Jerk Off and Asshole, depending on how mad you were at someone.

Penelope said...

He's an overrated asshole.

JSierra said...

I know

JSierra said...

I didn't even know it was a homophobic slur until I was in high school, that's how far removed from it's origin it is in my generation.

When I was a little kid my cousins told me it was like calling someone a butthead so I went around spewing fbombs to all my relatives that Thanksgiving. My Dad put an end to that real quick when I yelled "hey you faghit pass me some turkey!" I think the only reason I got away with it so long was because I couldn't pronounce it at all.

Sherry said...

Here's a quote from his IMDB page:

"I despise common people. They make me throw up."

Apparently the rest of the family is in the music industry. His brother manages Maroon 5 and his dad was the tour accountant for Guns and Roses. A job my ex was supposed to do (or at least for Axel) and like the album, the tour never came to pass. He was one happy mofo to be working with R Kelly instead and he hates R.Kelly.

I like Charlies plan. While Jonah isn't the nicest guy around (understatement) having someone dog you and harass and harangue you would be too much. I'm sure anyone would blow after a while.

auntliddy said...

Jsierra- i gad zero idea that word was so offensive til the whole isuah washington dealio. Of course i have no occaison to use it, but i was like, woa, what if it slipped out and hurt someones feelings?!hasnt hapoened so um still golden, lol

auntliddy said...

Sherry- well, he is as common as they come.

Amartel said...

This guy is painfully insecure about his looks. Hero worshipped Brad Pitt during Moneyball promotion (painful) and Dicaprio during promotion of that wall street movie but probably resented them both. Hence the trashing of the home. Also was probably high as a kite at the time. Makes negative comments about other peoples' looks. Dieted down a lot but couldn't keep it off. Frustrated and angry and boom ... walking time bomb.

Riven said...

He has a penis. He can be as large as he wants as long as people think he's funny.

See: john candy and Chris Farley.

Riven said...

@Frufra holy shit on a cracker you just described my life's calling. Brb off to make millions teaching people to curse with swagger.

LowKey said...

I agree with Count, there is way too much PC bullshit around today. You can't say anything without hurting some special snowflake's feelings. It's gone too far.
And I'm speaking as one who was bullied in HS.

Dexamyl said...

It's always interesting what sort of pejorative terms people are willing to overlook...and from whom.

Homophobic slurs generally have no consequences for the user. Racist terms are more complicated.

Paula Deen, an old Southern woman, admits to using ni**er once, 30 years ago, and her career is over. The disgusting Justin Bieber is shown on video using the same term a couple of years ago as a joke, repeatedly, and TV commentators rush to his defense. Jason Kennedy still hasn't managed to dislodge his tongue from Bieber's sphincter

Rose said...

There is no way Paula Deen only used the N word once. That is just not a word you randomly use. It's either in your vocabulary or it's not.

Riven said...

It's amusing how far people go to protect their right to use words they know hurt others due to a long history of negative connotation, simply because the idea of their "right" to do so is more important to them than the feelings of people who are tormented by those very words. A++ kudos fantastic human beings all around. Do you have black friends?

If you wouldn't say "retarded" in ANY context to the face of a child with Down syndrome, you consciously know it's a horrible word. I suggest you grow up, drop your self-involvement and speak like an intelligent person in the 21st century. Jesus.

Who cares if it's a word you grew up using? It's not 20th century anymore. Our intelligence and access to information has evolved, why haven't you?

Riven said...

Edit: should read "do you have black friends, TOO" but the missing word makes that come across really poorly and misses the sarcastic mark I was aiming for.

Rome said...

Maybe the pap was gay and Jonah was hitting on him?

-P said...

Right on, Riven

Speaking of fags, happy 47th birthday to my favorite news twink Anderson Cooper

IMRICHBITCH said...

All opinions on the level of Jonah Hill's jerkiness aside, and the fact that it is NEVER acceptable to use a homophobic slur as derogatory term aside, he didn't say it out of the blue, the pap followed him down the street and at some points seemed to be within inches of him, making fun of his outfit, any sane person would loose their sh*t over that too.

Amartel said...

I hate the language police and the constant outrage like how dare whatshername say she felt the paps were kind of rapey how dare she, that sort of thing. Who cares? It's words. Grow a pair (inside or out, does not matter). Deal with the fact that the rest of humanity is not obligated nor likely to be nuanced about your particular issues. Act accordingly.

That being said, this guy's been handed a beautiful life and he's still a little bitch all the time.

M. Brown said...

At the risk of sounding too Intro to Soc when his anger flares up he goes for the predictable default, sexuality. Insults to a man 's masculinity or a woman's virtue (with weight a close second). To say that isn't rooted in homophobia and sexism is just inaccurate. Of course it is. As a society we value masculine men and have a problem with promiscuous women. We penalize anything that deviates from that. Do I think everyone that uses fag or slut is homophobic or sexist? No. But let's not kid each other from where the origins of these insults come from and why they are the 1st out of people's mouths.

Snootches said...

@Riven and we all know how their lives turned out...

Snootches said...

Agree.

NaughtyNurse said...

Touche, TTM. We can all sit around and call this guy an ugly fat fuck, amiright?

Riven said...

@Amartel Kudos for admitting "just words" hold more meaning and important to you than the physical, living, breathing and feeling human beings around you. It takes balls to admit that you find no value in improving your character when given the opportunity. I mean by god, challenging yourself to stop using just a few of the thousands of words in your vocabulary for the sake of others is just asking way way too much of you.

I'd be impressed except I'm not.

JSierra said...

Aunt Liddy I'm just waiting for the day cougar and swag become insults. Although I think swag is already halfway there.

Applepie said...

These words just dont mean the same nowdays. It doesnt mean 'i hate you cos you remind me of a gay person' its just a word. Its like calling someone a knob or twat.Yes, twat in uk means 'wanker' nothin more!

aemish said...

@Riven.. *golf clap*

Keep on making a difference hi*5

Worstcompanytoworkfor said...

Paparazzi are so annoying.

Count Jerkula said...

First they came for a word, and we did nothing. Next they will come for sentences, and everyone will still sit on our hands. When they come for paragraphs will any of you take up arms to defend them? When books that make people butthurt are pulled from the shelves and burned in the streets will you all be dumbfounded or sit there with torches and pitchforks, patting each other on the back for striking another blow against free speech and butthurtedness?

It is a slippery slope and I believe we should make our Maginot Line at words, so it never gets to gasoline and lighters at Barnes&Noble. Much like the Truman Doctrine preached containment of Communism, we need to contain censorship, before the Thought Police start implanting chips and carrying out door to door executions. Look how far electricity has come in 100years, censorship has the ability to move 10x as fast, because there is little infrastructure investment needed. I don't want to live in San Angeles, and I don't wanna learn how to use the three fucking sea shells.

TalksTooMuch said...

Book burning is absolutely nothing new

^5 for Demolition Man ref!

Count Jerkula said...

I agree w/ Rose. Paula Deen is "Old South". "Old South" has never changed and never will. Indoctrinated as children, brought up to fantasize about the "good ole days", and resent those who took it all away.

Count Jerkula said...

@TTM: Yes, but when the religious kooks do it, everyone is up in arms. Will it be the same reaction when the PC crowd does it?

Tongue N. Cheek said...

How we got from being offended by certain words to calling future PC book burners hypocrites seems a bit of a stretch. Just sayin'

LowKey said...

Damn, Count, you're on a roll today. <3

Count Jerkula said...

@Tongue N Cheek: It is natural progression. Once the PC machine is fully functional w/ swelled ranks, funding and tentacles in the media, you think after having a dozen words stricken from the language they gonna disassemble it?

Did we stop building nukes after Hiroshima? Did the Yankees dissolve the team after winning one World Series? Did Jeffrey Dahmer stop trying to make sex zombies after he fucked up and killed the first one? The answer is NO. They honed their craft and kept pushing forward.

If yer only ever worried about where you are, yer never gonna realize where yer going.

Tongue N. Cheek said...

Hang on Count... Are you Secretly the author of If You Give a Mouse a Cookie?

LowKey said...

If my choice of words hurts an individual that I am speaking to, I will sincerely apologize and choose my words more carefully in the future.
If my choice of words offends somebody's sensibilities because I "shouldn't say that" even though the word does not apply to them in any way, shape, or form... That's retarded.
And while we're on the topic, why is "retarded" off limits, but words like "cretin", " imbecile ", and "moron", which have the same history -basically, different terms for various mental disabilities or degrees of mental disability that are obsolete as medical terminology but still used at insults- these words are still OK? Doesn't make sense.

To make one thing clear - I do not go around calling people "retarded " or "faggot". I prefer more ...creative... insults.

Yeah... I'm rambling. I'll stop now.

Count Jerkula said...

@Low Key: Thank you. I enjoy tangents. The more ludicrous the references that I can use to make a point, the better.

TalksTooMuch said...

There will never be this type of legislation, people who use words like that who offend other people will be judged in the court of public opinion. Some people will be offended and not support whoever, lots won't care. That's the only logical outcome, not some PC book burning drive.

And censorship has been around since there were people, it moves about the speed of a slug stuck in tar. It is going very much in the opposite direction, actually, swear words and nudity and the like are all over the mainstream these days. If you were to follow the trend of censorship, you would see a huge decline, but still the same number that feel like PC is taking over. Like they thought it the 70s.

Tongue N. Cheek said...

I'd agree with you Low Key. But then we'd both be wrong. ;)

Amartel said...

Riven, you ignorant slut, you inadequate douchebag, you saggy little strawman, you sad excuse for a commenter. I did NOT admit to that words have "more meaning" than real people. PRO TIP: The right to free speech is there so the rest of us know who the assholes are. Thanks for serving as Exhibit A for that proposition.

M. Brown said...

Oh my God I just pictured the adult version of that book Count could write.

Tongue N. Cheek said...

But TTM... When I finish pulling the weeds out of my yard does the plant killing stop there?? No! Wait... Yes. It does. Ummm... When I throw away that pair of socks with the hole in it does the madness stop THERE?? Hmmm. Yes again. Ummm... When I trim a jagged nail... Ummm...
Tbh I don't think we should remove words that are offensive from the language. And neither, I think, does anyone else. I just think we should try to... Idk... Not be assholes to eachother.

TalksTooMuch said...

Are we...still on the same side, there, TNC?

Tongue N. Cheek said...

(Yes)

LowKey said...

Riven is none of those things, Amartel. Quite the opposite, in fact.
If you want to know who the asshole here is, might I suggest finding yourself a mirror?

Riven said...

@LowKey excellent point regarding words like imbecile and dumb. Unless I get bored or distracted (yay ADHD), I'll be back with either a good explanation or concession.

It did make me think about 'cunt' and 'dick.' But the others are anatomically-specific and therefore only reference a specific gender. I was in VagMon, so I should know the entomology of 'cunt,' but I've never reacted in any way to it so the idea of "reclaiming cunt" just didn't impact me.

Then of course there's bitch, also gender specific due to it's original definition, though it has evolved and is pretty commonly used with multiple meanings. And asshole theoretically should have universal application as we all have assholes, yet is commonly applied to men (and less commonly towards groups of people i.e. "You are all assholes").

However, I post all of this on my phone so I'm going to let someone else handle that debate should they so chose. I'm already eyeing my kindle and considering saying fuck it, advocacy quota met for the day lol.

Riven said...

I already tried to make "If You Give Low Key Popcorn" on another post but it didn't catch on. Sorry @LowKey!

Riven said...

@Count A+ for the Demolition Man ref

LowKey said...

I could discuss etymology all day, Riven, I love words!
(and popcorn, lol)

Cocoa said...

LowKey, my fellow word lover, words are more fun to discuss than insects, agreed?

hairydawg said...

@ Riven. Amartel has always been a bitchy little cunt. It's what gets him out of bed in the morning. I enjoy your posts and look forward to more.

LowKey said...

Actually, I am quite fond of entomology as well, Cocoa!

Cocoa said...

Okay, what about epidemiology?

sugarbread maker said...

His brother manages Adam Levine.

LowKey said...

Alright, I had to Google that one to be sure, smarty pants!
(but it will come in handy when the zombie apocalypse begins)

Cocoa said...

I defer to you and your doctorate in Zombology ;-)

LowKey said...

Off to bed- gotta work tomorrow. I'll leave you with this question that drove me nuts for the longest time: Why is "colonel" pronounced "kernel"?
G'night!

Meauxelle said...

@Count-you said something sweet on a post in the last couple of days, making me think you have another level...intriguing! Now, this? Very intriguing! I suspect you are a really good guy, but I promise I won't tell anyone else and ruin your bad-boy reputation!

Cocoa said...

Colonel/Kernel:

Riven said...

@LowKey so much love, I really appreciate that you spoke up to defend me. :D especially since you're, you know, that one dude's super hot in an angsty gothy way brother.

I'm not perfect, I can see that I was exasperated earlier, but I normally am very cognizant of the fine line between educating/questioning and lecturing/judging. I may have stumbled a bit while walking it today. But heeeey y'all I didn't use the word 'privilege' once! So I formally request leniency on anything that came across as overtly judgmental.

I can't stay silent, because if I'm not willing to how can I possibly expect or ask anyone else to? But I'll do better at delivery next time.

Also please tell me these discussions/debates came up before I started posting. Someone. Anyone? No? Damnit, Riven.

Riven said...

@Amartel
I think see your point, I clearly overestimated the size of your vocabulary in my earlier post. I promise that I will not make that mistake again.

I can see that my words have upset you, and you've chosen to personally attack me as a defensive response. That is your right and you are welcome to it. However, you have reduced yourself to childish name calling and immature insults towards someone you've never interacted with previously in any regard. You display a remarkable lack of depth and maturity for someone over the age of 13 (which FYI is the minimum-age requirement for most websites).

This is the quality of character you have chosen to embrace. Good luck with that.

PRO-TIP: "Ignorance" doesn't mean what you think it means.

Sherry said...

See Meauxelle. I pointed this out about the Count the other day and I was actually scoffed at, nay MOCKED. So, it's not just me.

Count Jerkula said...

Cocoa: I think Epidemiology is the study of the tube that connects the testicle to the vas deferens.

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

Funny how guys will get mad at someone and say, "Suck my dick!" In this case it means that sucking his dick must be awful and a bad job to have to do, a degrading act that would belittle the intended party.
But then.....they want their lovers to sick their dick. So ....

Iwinjen said...

Invoking the name of Jesus in a sentence to create inflection is offensive. But it's cool. Christians are totally OK to offend. Whatever you do don't draw a picture of allah, though.

FlirtyChick74 said...

+1@Amartel. Came here to say the same thing too.

Count Jerkula said...

@Sincerely: It is a dominance thing.

Cocoa said...

You. Make. Me. Laugh!!!!

Diana Maras said...

So stupid. This is not a homophobic slur. This is your basic unimaginative insult to a man questioning his manhood not a hit towards all gays. It's a homophobic slur when you hate gays and attack them with words. I wish people would stop labeling, generalizing, and playing bait cards. It's disgusting. Sadly, more disgusting than Jonah Hill.
