Ice Cube, '22 Jump Street' Directors Respond To Jonah Hill's Anti-Gay Outburst

Posted: Updated:

Ice Cube and the directors of "22 Jump Street" joined HuffPost Live this week, sounding off on (among other things) Jonah Hill's recent anti-gay debacle.

"I give people a little room to say stupid stuff," Ice Cube said. "We all say something stupid every now and then."

Instead, the hip-hop artist and actor said the paparazzi should be taking the heat.

"What we really need to do is kick the paparazzi in the ass," he said. "It's extremely annoying to be sitting somewhere, and somebody's 20 feet away with a camera pointing on you and you don't know how long that camera's been on you."

The film's co-director Christopher Miller called the incident "very disappointing and surprising, but it wasn't the Jonah that we know."

Hill stopped by "The Tonight Show" earlier this week to apologize for the controversial outburst.

"Words have weight and meaning, and the word I chose was grotesque," he said. "And no one deserves to say or hear words like that."
