Jonah Hill again apologized for using a gay slur over the weekend and urged his fans to use him as “an example of what not to do.”

“The Wolf of Wall Street” star was being pursued by a paparazzo in Los Angeles when he lost his temper when the photographer commented on his shorts. Hill responded with an expletive and used a gay slur.

However, within hours of film footage of the incident emerging online on Tuesday, Hill made clear he deeply regrets the incident. Hill said people should not respond with “anger or hatred” because it adds “ugliness to the world.”
