Here is the comment that was left and Jess’ response.
Suffice to say, people are offended, angry, and hurt, especially considering that Jess has so many fans in the LGBTQ community.
There’s just no room in society for speech like this. People will not stand for it and public figures with large platforms should know better. But alas, here we are.

Listen, I have NEVER been homophobic in my fucking life. I love gay people as they love me. Yesterday I called a young man a “faggot” For disrespecting me. And for that, to the LGBT community I sincerely apologize. However if I feel disrespected and that someone hit below the belt, whether they are gay or not, I’m going to return the same energy. I’m trying to control my anger at this point in my career By being more positive, but just like anybody else, it’s a growing process. I ask that the LGBT 🏳️🌈 gives respect as they want it. If you feel as if you can’t forgive me and I am still canceled on your watch I totally understand 🌈 Still Love you guys.
To the LGBTQ folks, do you accept this “apology”? Are you still a Jess Hilarious fan? We want to hear from you in the comments.
