For years, great scholars will teach of these celebrity rivalries, but they will all pale in comparison to the bitter feud between two-time Academy Award nominee, Jonah Hill, and 50-year-old baby, Grogu.
Firstly, I think it’s disgusting that Jonah simply thinks he can throw his weight around, because he carries a certain level of fame; thinking that he can publicly attack someone a lot older than him; especially as Baby Yoda isn’t old enough to develop speech yet. It makes me sick.
I’m glad I got that off of my chest. I used to be a fan of Jonah’s, but after this, I think it’s a step too far.
According to reports, Leonardo DiCaprio kindly introduced Jonah to Grogu via his EMMY-winning series, The Mandalorian.
Speaking to W magazine, Jonah Hill said that Leo “made me watch The Mandalorian when we were making Don’t Look Up, and it was like, Baby Yoda was so cute, but I just didn’t give a fuck because I didn’t know anything that it was about.”
Is that not the most self-centred, egotistical thing you’ve ever read? Jonah Hill refused to acknowledge poor Grogu’s existence because he – and I quote – “didn’t know anything that it was about?” How about reading a book sometime, Jonah. Ever heard of the 95,000,000-word document on the history of Arvala-7?
Despite Jonah shaming Grogu with his ‘one rule’ (“If it didn’t happen or it couldn’t happen, then I just wasn’t interested”), Baby Yoda took the higher ground and refused to comment; seemingly taking himself off of social media to avoid the conflict.
Clearly, this backlash has effected Jonah, as he took to Instagram to share a message; saying, “LOL is there anything cornier than literally all media . They’re literally trying to create beef between me and Baby Yoda.
“I’m getting ahead of it. I wanna say this once on the record officially: Baby Yoda and I are dear friends and text at least once a week. We may not be text every day type of friends and yes Covid put a strain on our friendship , but we are all good. And that’s all I will say on this matter ! Now please respect our privacy at this time.”
While I hope for Jonah’s sake, Grogu learns to forgive him, I wouldn’t hold it against Baby Yoda if he didn’t. To attack a baby like that is simply inexcusable.
