Jonah Hill Funny Man Makes a Mistake
Jonah Hill wasn't thinking
Jonah Hill said some pretty nasty stuff to a paparazzo that was following him around. The paparazzo was obviously bothering him but then again that is a part of their job. Jonah Hill trying to get away from the man was unable to gain his freedom and it began to infuriate the actor. The actor then spewed some hate where he told the man to suck his di-- you f'n f-g. Now the gay slur here is really what has caused the commotion. It appears that the man is using the context of word fag as a hateful word. Now, even though he may have meant something rude out of this is not justifiable to say Jonah Hill is anti-gay or someone who is homophobic. Simply the term has been used as an insult. Now it is easy to say that this was the poorest choice of words he could have used on a live media stream. Understandably, some people may have been upset by this, but it's much different then a hate response. You see even though Jonah Hill is being scrutinized for the words he has used, rightfully so, we need to look at this from a broader prospective. Remember that for many years in this country and many others the word fag has been used to insult many. Though this is wrong many people use it and do not truly mean the context of the word. A matter of fact the word fag has really nothing to do with homosexuality in it's origin. Today the word is associated with people who partake in same sex relationships. Think about this though, the word is used in songs and movies to insult someone. Many times though it isn't really an insult about being gay.
The context of words
When someone is insulting someone else they may call them things like bitch, or mother f'er. Though these things have meaning, it isn't always that meaning that makes them insulting. Some words are taken in ways that they are not meant. Bitch is not in most cases referring to a female dog. But we take as a very deep insult meaning many other things from a girl who is mean to a girl who is a common whore. In many cases when we say mother f'er we aren't referring to someone who sleeps with peoples mothers. In many cases that would be a strong and strange insult. No usually when that term is thrown around it is either describing something or to cause anger in another person and let them know you think they are nothing or trash. So lets rationalize a little what is going on here with Jonah Hills outburst again this member of the paparazzi. It appears that Jonah Hill said some rude thing to him but in fact this guy is not a homosexual. Jonah Hill may have told him to do something that would come off as homosexual for one man to do to another, but it really wasn't something to be taken in that manner. Many times ins media we will here things like suck my dick. Usually t doesn't mean literally do that. A lot of time what that means is you are lower then me and I do not care about what you have to say. In sense suck my dick is just put out there to tell an individual to shut up. It is without a doubt a crude thing to say. When later calling the man a fag, I think it is clear that what he is doing is saying, get away from me and stop asking me questions you nobody. Unfortunately, saying things like that don't have the power of using more powerful words.
Jonah Hill explains
Jonah Hill in Russia
apology on Howard Stern
Jonah Hill is a gay rights activist
Jonah Hill has stood up for gay rights in Russia against a regime that had spread its distaste for it. Jonah Hill let his opinion be known during the Olympic games. He stood up in equality and fairness and pushed his feelings of how he felt it was unfair that homosexuals were going through that kind of hate. Jonah Hill is a much kinder man in real life then some of his roles portray. He is a very funny actor and really great comedian, he really deserves more respect then he gets. Now that he has angered a group of people though, he was very quick to apologize. There was no hesitation and he knew that saying something of that magnitude would upset a lot of people. In many cases though, I feel the media targeted him with this. They made seem as if he was hateful toward the gay community and I feel like it is much more apparent that he is not. Jonah Hill as established apologies on the web and taken it as far as The Howard Stern Show to apologize. The big question though is are the people of homosexual origin upset. Honestly, there hasn't been backlash from the gay community and Jonah Hill has still made his business to issue and apology. It appears that he has a strong conscience and really doesn't want to hurt anyone's feelings. I think it really is safe to say that he did not mean any harm from what he has said in the past. He is a proud supporter of gar marriage and really has no hatred toward that community. I personally feel he is getting a bad wrap for everything due to his status symbol as a celebrity. This is by far a completely different situation then the article I have written about Donald Sterling. Now that man offended a group of people meaning to be racist and still hasn't issued a real apology. In my opinion Jonah Hill is really going out there to make amends for what he did. Jonah Hill has a strong amount of regret in his voice when he speak about the situation. Again, this really is nothing like the Donald Sterling situation. http://joedolphin88.hubpages.com/hub/Donald-Sterling-So-Stupid
Forgiveness is ok here
I think people should forgive Jonah Hill for this slip of the tongue because this wasn't suppose to be a slur toward gays. This was meant to be an insult toward a man who was really upsetting the young actor. It's undisclosed what kind of things were said off camera to upset Jonah Hill as this Paparazzo has. In that their is surely a good reason to why the actor spoke with the words he did. I think it is safe to say that Jonah Hill won't be saying anymore gay slurs. He is young man of character and intellect. The mans job is to make people laugh. He isn't the kind of guy who says jokes about a select group. He's the kind of guy who makes fun of everyone equally. I haven't watched a movie where I felt he had stepped over the line and quite frankly saying something like this though regrettable is really not said in the type of meaning that it is being received. Jonah Hill doesn't seem like the kind of guy who hates anyone of any race creed religion or sexual preference. The guy seems very equal rights for everyone. Thus I find it necessary for people to forgive him. He really is not a man of hate. Think about how many times he has said things in the sake of comedy that could be taken as an insult, again he is a comedian. Lets just say forgiveness is key here.
