Jonah and Justin, penitent together . . .

If you're Jonah Hill, you might be wishin' you'd kept your burrito chute zipped. Irritated by a pair o' paparazzis dogging him 'round L.A. and commenting on his fetching floral-print shorts, Jonah invited one to perform an intimate act. It was, it says here, "a homophobic slur," and Jonah, a vociferous supporter of gay rights, went on both Howard Stern's show and Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show to apologize. . . . Justin Bieber, caught in a six-year-old video being dumbly racist (not the first time!), probably also wishes his 14-year-old self had had a brain cell. He has also apologized, and folks like Floyd Mayweather and Soulja Boy have defended him.
