Jonah Hill is showing off his monster black-eye, claiming it was caused by a surfboard accident in Hawaii.
The ‘Don’t Look Up’ star shared a video of himself relaxing in a pool, with a brutal shiner, and even joked about it NOT being caused by Baby Yoda.
If you don’t follow Mr. Hill on Instagram, it is an ongoing joke after a news outlet appeared to pit him against Baby Yoda in an article. The headline read ‘Jonah Hill Says Leonardo DiCaprio Forced Him to Watch ‘The Mandalorian’ but ‘Didn’t Give a F—.’ The story included a picture of Hill next to Yoda. So, Jonah blasted the outlet, saying, “LOL is there anything cornier than literally all media. They’re literally trying to create beef between me and Baby Yoda.”

He continued, “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 everyday 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.”
Now, Jonah decided to use the ongoing joke to explain his way out of the nasty-looking black eye.
In the video, Hill jokes, “I’m going to say this once and once only, this black eye is from my surfboard, it’s not because of a fistfight I got into with baby Yoda because of our falling out.” You can clearly see the shiner in the clip.

He continued, “That being said I do officially challenge Baby Yoda to a [Verzuz Tv] battle,” Hill wrote. “And @disneyplus definitely did NOT pay me off to protect the fact that one of their marquee stars has a big mouth and would definitely catch hands if he didn’t sucker punch me with his little baby green fist.”
Michael B. Jordan couldn’t get enough of the hilarious video and posted several crying laughing emojis in the comment section. “The baby Yoda cover up!!! The truth will surface!!! Baby Yoda don’t play that shit Homie!!!” skateboarder Chad Muska joked. Mark Ronson even offered to DJ the Versus event if it ever happens!
It appears a few Britney Spears fans infiltrated the comment section, with one saying, “Wear a blue shirt in your next video if Baby Yoda forced you to make this video!!”

As you know, Jonah Hill took a bit of a break from acting and returned to Hollywood while promoting his new film, ‘Don’t Look Up.’ The actor stars alongside Leo, Meryl Streep, and Jennifer Lawerence.
Interestingly, Lawerence opened up about how “hard” it was to work with Hill because she had to control no “ruining take after take, laughing.”
The cast even dedicated an entire day “to him just improv-ing insults at me. It was amazing…[Jonah] and Meryl [Streep] were the only ones who should do that kind of improv. Adding, “I mean, he’s just a comedic master.”
It’s your move, Baby Yoda!
