America sure loves a plucky buffoon, proven by Jonah Hill‘s entire career.  Now, the prankster superstar is finding himself in a bit of trouble after hurling a particularly nasty gay slur at an aggressive paparazzi.  While not exactly surprising coming from a semi-schlubby king of frat boy comedy, it’s hard not to be disappointed.

As seen in a video caught by TMZ, Hill had a few choice words for a snarky pap who felt the need to comment on his outfit.  Hill’s f-word laden reproach (“Suck my d*ck you f*ggot!”)  wasn’t exactly the best response to someone telling you they “like your shorts, bro.”

The situation is obviously reminiscent of earlier incidences from actor Alec Baldwin, who had similarly aggressive and homophobic choice words for some nasty photographers last year.  The backlash from those outbursts caused Baldwin to announce his exit from public life »
