    Jonah Hill's hopes of never having to talk about this incident again after the Howard Stern show were quickly shut down.

    The actor, who has openly supported gay rights for years, made headlines after he was caught using a homophobic slur during a run-in with paparazzi recently, and although Hill has already apologized (more than once) for what he said, the discussion on what happened continues.

    But that's OK, because Jonah had more to say about it. During an appearance on Good Morning America this morning, the celeb made a promise to never use such language again.

    "Words can be really destructive and this kind of defamatory language can have a profound effect on someone who is questioning their sexuality and it's never OK to use that kind of language and I personally vow to never ever use that word ever again and I urge everyone to do the same," Hill said.

    After being followed by a shutterbug for nearly an entire day, Jonah became frustrated and snapped, "Suck my d--k, you f----t." Since then, he's expressed his remorse with Howard Stern and once again with Jimmy Fallon.

    He told Fallon and his audience, "My heart's broken and I genuinely am deeply sorry to anybody who's ever been affected by that term in their life. I'm sorry and I don't deserve or expect your forgiveness, but what I ask is at home, if you're watching this and you're a young person especially, if someone says something that hurts you or angers you, use me as an example of what not to do. Don't respond with hatred or anger because you're just adding more ugliness to the world. And again, I am just so sorry."
