We're very curious what y'all think in Hill's case, because we went back and forth while listening to this interview between both sides...

Days before "22 Jump Street" (which is apparently quite progressive in terms of the way it deals with LGBT people), the generally gay-friendly Jonah Hill had an Alec Baldwin moment: He was caught on camera telling a photographer to "Suck my dick, faggot!" 

He immediately went on to Howard Stern to address this, seemingly sincere in his embarrassment as he rather eloquently explained how his choice of words were "disgusting" and "not at all reflect how I feel about any group of people." It's an interesting interview, and one that continues to extend the debate about how aggressively we police words and whether or not it's warranted. We're very curious what y'all think in Hill's case, because we went back and forth while listening to this interview between both sides… On the one hand, he has absolutely no ownership of that word, and on the other… Doesn't it waste our time to direct anger at folks like Hill, who are clearly not really the enemy?
