Actor Jonah Hill has moved quickly to defuse the controversy over his gay jibe at a photographer, branding his remark “disgusting” and admitting he deeply regrets the incident.

“The Wolf of Wall Street” star was being pursued by a paparazzo in Los Angeles over the weekend 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.

“What I said in that moment was disgusting… I shouldn’t have said that.” The funnyman said he takes full responsibility for the comment but alleged the snapper had been following him for hours.
