Jonah Hill has been in the news quite a bit over the past few days thanks to a recent declaration from the likes of Kanye West. As many of you already know, Kanye took to Instagram where he shared his love for Hill. Overall, his post was meant to be a redemption arc of sorts. Within the post, Ye said that Jonah’s performance in 21 Jump Street made him love Jewish people again. Although, no one was truly buying this post. It felt pretty maniacal and smarter fans saw right through it. However, it still got a ton of eyeballs.
“Watching Jonah Hill in 21 Jump street made me like Jewish people again,” Ye wrote. “No one should take anger against one or two individuals and transform that into hatred towards millions of innocent people. No Christian can be labeled antisemite knowing Jesus is Jew. Thank you Jonah Hill I love you.” Regardless of the message here, it’s clear that Kanye got everyone’s attention again. It also got the attention of Jonah Hill, who must be feeling pretty weird about the whole thing.
According to TMZ, Hill was actually spotted outside of a restaurant in Santa Monica recently. While leaving the spot, Jonah Hill was greeted by all sorts of cameras and paparazzi. Subsequently, Hill was asked about Kanye’s post and what he thought about all of it. Instead of answering, Hill just kept it moving as he wanted to leave the area. Overall, you cannot blame him for taking the high road here. After all, what are you even supposed to say in this situation?
Whether or not this will have fans on Ye’s side again, remains to be seen. However, it does not feel like that is going to be the case. In the months prior to this, he was hanging out with known white supremacists. Additionally, he was saying some truly hurtful things, all while siding with Adolf Hitler and the Nazis. It was a ridiculous and hateful display that ruined his legacy for a lot of people. Let us know what you think about all of this, in the comments down below.
