Jonah Hill apologizes for using gay slur: 'I'm happy to be the poster boy for thinking about what you say'
Jonah Hill called a papparazzo a gay slur over the weekend — and now, he’s apologizing for it.
“In that moment, I said a disgusting word that does not at all reflect how I feel about any group of people,” Hill told Howard Stern in a radio interview.
When you create something for public consumption, you’re putting yourself in a very fragile position. For example, creating a popular television show means handing your beloved characters over to the world for weekly scrutinizing. Then again, it also means handing them over for weekly adoration. But no matter how beloved a show, movie, album, or book might be, no creator is perfect. And by default, no creator’s work is perfect.
That being said, there are few times in the world of pop culture where a creator has come forth and apologized for a large piece of work. Do rappers often have to apologize for certain lyrics? Yes. Are there controversial moments in television episodes that get addressed immediately? Of course. But looking back at an entire season of television or a film and saying “sorry” to fans is a rarity in this business. And in honor of Aaron Sorkin’s recent apology to fans of The Newsroom, we’ve rounded up some other notable apologies. And you know what? We’re not sorry about it.
