Hill, 30, was walking with friends as he was followed by paparazzi shouting out comments in hopes the actor would respond, when one photographer began teasing him about his pink shorts: “I like the shorts though, bro. They are pretty sexy.”

The photographer followed Hill for another 40 seconds or so before wishing him a good day — and that’s when an obviously angry and frustrated Hill uncorked the homophobic slur, reports TMZ.

“Suck my dick, you faggot!” Hill responded.

On Tuesday, Hill apologized for the slur on Howard Stern’s radio broadcast.

“In that moment I said a disgusting word that does not at all reflect how I feel about any group of people,” said Hill.

Hill — who has been active in supporting gay rights and has spoken out against Russia’s anti-gay laws — said the photographer had been following him for a while and saying mean things about his family and himself.

“I played into exactly what he wanted and lost my cool,” he told Stern. “I shouldn’t have said that.”
