Jonah Hill continued his gay slur apology tour on Extra, and this time Channing Tatum, his 21 Jump Street co-star, was there to have his back.

Said Tatum: "I'll jump in and just say that I think most of the time when people have to go on and sort of apologize for something it might not come off all that well because it's not actually like what they mean. I can honestly say that is not who he is. It came off well and he did it well because he really means it, that wasn’t who he was that day."

Hill_colbert

Jonah Hill appeared on The Colbert Report last night and Colbert took the opportunity if he'd like to address "the elephant in the room." Of course Hill thought he was referring to the anti-gay slur.

"It was revealed that you are friends with Adam Levine. Would you like to apologize? Because I have had 'Moves Like Jagger' in my head for three years, and someone needs to say they're f--king sorry for that."

Actor Jonah Hill Apologizes for Homophobic Slur on 'The Tonight Show': VIDEO

Ts_jonah_hill

Jonah Hill issued another apology for an incident over the weekend in which he called a paparazzo a homophobic slur. Hill had issued one apology on The Howard Stern show already.

Said Hill:

"There was a paparazzi guy and he was antagonizing me and calling me names, attacking me personally, and my family personally, and I was genuinely hurt by this, and made angry by this, and in response, I wanted to hurt him back, and I said the most hurtful word that I could think of at that moment.

 “You know, I didn't mean this in the sense of the word, you know? I didn't mean it in a homophobic way And I think that, um, that doesn't matter. 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. I've been a supporter of the LGBT community my entire life and I completely let the members of that community and everybody else down when I used a word like that...I'm genuinely and deeply sorry to anyone who has ever been affected by that term in their life.

“I don't deserve or expect your forgiveness, but what I ask is that at home, if you're watching this, and you're a young person especially; if someone says something that hurts you or angers you, use me as an example of what not to do, and don't respond with hatred or anger. Because you're just adding more ugliness to the world. I'm so sorry."

Jonah Hill spoke with Howard Stern this morning after TMZ aired a video of Hill hurling a homophobic slur at a photographer.

Said Hill:

"This is a heartbreaking situation for me...I'm upset...From the day I was born, and publicly, I've been a gay rights activist...This person had been following me around all day saying hurtful things. I played into exactly what he wanted and I said a disgusting word...It's bulls--t and I shouldn't have said that. I'm happy to take the heat for using this disgusting word. What I won't allow is for anyone - it would break my heart to think that anyone - especially with all the work that I've done and all the loved ones that I have - that I would be against anyone for their sexuality."

Jonah Hill Pulls an Alec Baldwin, Hurls Anti-Gay Slur at Paparazzo

Hill

After being followed and questioned by a paparazzo from TMZ in the Larchmont area of Los Angeles, actor Jonah Hill lashed out at the photographer with a farewell insult:

"Suck my d--k you faggot!"

Video here.

It's a similar sentiment to the one Alec Baldwin hurled at a photographer in NYC last November. He was condemned by GLAAD, and blasted by Anderson Cooper and Andrew Sullivan. MSNBC canceled Baldwin's show following the incident.

Will Hill be held to the same standards?

UPDATE: Hill expresses his regret to Howard Stern...
