(NBC) - Actor Jonah Hill apologized on "The Tonight Show starring
Jimmy Fallon" Tuesday night for using a gay slur during an encounter with a paparazzo over the weekend.
Hill said he was angered when a TMZ photographer harassed him all day, called him names and made hurtful comments about his family.
He called his choice of words, "grotesque".
Hill added that he's been a supporter of the LGBTQ community his entire life.
Before the Winter Olympics this year, Hill promoted a campaign opposing anti-gay laws in Russia.
