Oscar-nominated actor Jonah Hill gave an emotional apology on The Tonight Show Tuesday (3 June) for calling a photographer a 'faggot' over the weekend.
Hill, who had earlier apologized on The Howard Stern Show, explained that when he used the word in anger and frustration, 'I didn't mean it in a homophobic way.'
But he offered no excuses.
'How you mean things doesn't matter. Words have weight and meaning, and the word I chose was grotesque. And, you know...no one deserves to say or hear words like that.'
