Meme: Michael Sam Welcomed by St. Louis Rams, Disney Caves For Princess Leia Toys, Will Jonah Hill Sink “22 Jump Street?”

Military color guard marches in DC Pride, Justin Bieber baptized in bath tub, Sir Mix-a-Lot performs with Seattle Symphony

Deadline is wondering if Jonah Hill’s anti-gay slur is going to hurt the box office of 22 Jump Street. First of all, have they seen this movie?
