GLAAD to Perez Hilton: Shame On You!

GLAAD to Perez Hilton: Shame On You!

The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) is speaking out against celebrity blogger Perez Hilton after he admittedly used an anti-gay slur (f—ot) in an altercation with Will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas.

Rashad Robinson, Senior Director of Media Programs at GLAAD: “These are vulgar anti-gay slurs that feed a climate of hatred and intolerance toward our community. For someone in our own community to use it to attack another person by saying that it is, quote, ‘The worst possible thing that thug would ever want to hear,’ is incredibly dangerous. It legitimizes use of a slur that is often linked to violence against our community. And it sends a message that it is OK to attempt to dehumanize people by exploiting anti-gay attitudes. We have reached out to Hilton and asked him to apologize for promoting this anti-gay slur and we would ask media outlets to avoid repetition of the slur in their coverage of this story.”

Perez responded, saying, “I am saddened GLAAD chose to victimize me further by criticizing me for how I non-violently dealt with a very scary situation that, unfortunately, turned violent. While I doubt I will get an apology from GLAAD, nor do I expect one, I would just hope people know how difficult it is to intellectualize a situation and think rationally when a thug disguised as a musician is screaming at your face and intimidating you. I am just very fortunate and grateful that nothing more serious happened to me.”

Pop culture chronicler Rich Juzwiak adds his two cents about Perez: “I just kind of want to throw up my hands (or in my hands) and call out this character, this persona, this online half-person for what it is: bad for the Internet, bad for gay people, bad for the world. I can’t help but feel like everything would be better off without him… I racked my brain and I’ve still come up with absolutely nothing positive or pro-social that he has brought to the world.”

    PEREZ HILTON IS AN ABOMINATION TO THE GAY COMMUNITY FOR USING THAT WORD EVEN WHEN HE IS GAY HIMSELF! HE SHOULD HAVE DEALT WITH THE MATTER IN A MATURE WAY INSTEAD OF POSTING A BLEEPING VIDEO ABOUT HOW HE WAS ATTACKED INSTEAD OF FINDING OUT THE FACTS AND SAYING HEY YOU HIT ME WHAT WAS UP WITH THAT AND THEN GET ON WITH HIS LIFE AND NOT BE A FREAKING ATTENTION WHORE GEZZ HIS SISTER MAY BE IN THE NEWS MORE THAN HE IS BUT SHE ISNT AN ATTENTION WHORE LIKE HIM!

  • Eve

    I cannot stand that pimply faced idiot. I only regret that that dude’s fist didn’t slam into his face instead of the back of his bubble head.

  • altair

    I’m ok with homosexuality. I’m ok with beautiful people. I’m ok with every race that exists. But when you become annoying and trying to make a “pointless point”, that is when I get upset. It’s kind of like reverse racism–a group gets into an issue and then they blame others outside of a group for being racist based on their thoughts or reactions (which do not necessarily imply bias/racism). I was uncomfortable that my roommate left a stranger in our apartment one day when she stepped out (without telling me someone was going to be there), and she accused me of being homophobic.

    With that said, Perez is a dumbass and distastefully rude, and I say that based on his words and actions.

  • catty

    Violence is never the answer, I agree Perez. But have you heard the phrase “the pen is mightier than the sword?” You have been freely weilding your “pen” around without conscience for many years. You have done much worse to people than punch them in the eye. I was particularly offended by your recent treatment of Adam Lambert. You lambasted him for not pronouncing that he is gay every time someone stuck a mic in his face. That was none of your effing business. Adam was not closeted and you were insinuating he was. You went out of your way to post the worst pictures you could find of him every time you posted a story on him. Thank you to GLAAD. I hope Perez will read all these posts today.

  • ahhhhhh

    How about just pure entertainment? His site is up to the person reading the blog to decide if it’s funny or truth or just plain silliness.

    If someone goes on that site and thinks that is real than they are the issue.

    I just don’t get it. EVERY single word anyone ever says, dummy, ugly, old, whatever…someone on this earth is going to take offense.

    Someone punched him in the eye. that is called assault. Isn’t there a People for the Ethical Treatment of Bloggers? PETB……

  • susan

    Perez also blatantly lied at first and said will.i.am hit him when, now that the picture is out, you can see he was hit from behind and couldn’t see who hit him. Plus the guys hand looks like a white guy. He’s a hatemonger and hating and verbally abusing people brings hate back on you. Boycott his site. Clicking on his site is what gives him his money. Lets help to put him out of business.

  • Marieme

    That choice of photo is priceless! Lol!

  • TwilightGirl

    Perez thinks that he’s so famous and so cool!
    well wake up dude! you’re not!
    everyone hates perez he’s so mean with the celebrities and he thinks that make him cool
    I’m just saying that he’s a totall fugly guy!

  • Lorah

    Perez Hilton is a scumsucking pig. He deserves everything he gets and I don’t think this will be the last fist he sees against his face. It’s been a very long time coming. I don’t think violence settles anything but in this case, Perez had it coming. What’s funny to think of is that the line of people that would have loved to have been the one to smack him is probably so long and now all those people are cheering today. Perez is disgusting and is one of the exact kind of people that give the gay community a bad name when they do NOT deserve it.

  • Sam

    I’m so sick of Will being blamed because he didnt TOUCH him i was there

  • perry

    Two Queens fighting, Perez deserves alot of things but come on don’t send your homeboy to beat him up.

  • Jacie

    Perez must be on drugs. He doesn’t recognize what he did wrong. He twittered his fans to call 911 and messed up the toronto lines when people really needed ambulances. He is ridiculous. He said Will assulted him and then later said both Will and his manager assulted him. He is a liar. To pretend to be Fergie’s friend at parties and events and then bully her appearance daily and say her husband is too sexy for her is beyond rude. Not to mention fake.

  • ohcomeon

    Please read comment # 13. So right! Perez needs to realize abuse is comes in two forms..physical and “verbal”. It’s not OK to verbally abuse people every day either. He was bound to get beat up at some point. He’s an extremely mean and nasty person. The world gets needs to stop idolizing nasty celebrities because they contribute nothing to the world…

  • Joe

    If someone else would of said that it would of been all over Perez’s website and he would of bashed them but we should overlook it when he does it?? Hypocrites!

  • kel

    wow so you just now write about this, jared? and post a really ugly ass photo of perez? haha, tried to avoid it but just had to huh?

  • CaliWriter

    And this ass is famous why?
    All he’s got going for him is a big mouth which he has no idea when to keep shut. He always comes off looking like a total moron who should have spent his money getting an education so he’d have a clue.

  • CaliWriter

    Oh and maybe someone should direct him to the proactive counter at the local mall…keep the crack pipe away from him and throw him in the freaking shower.

  • TWPumpkin

    THIS PIG OF A MAN DESERVES EVERYTHING HE GETS. HE MAKES HIS MONEY AND FAME FROM ATTACKING OTHER PEOPLE. WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO SAY ABOUT MISS CALIFORNIA NOW YOU BIG UGLY FAT MEDIA WHORE!!!

  • rocky

    @TWPumpkin:

    ITAWU 100%!!! He’s a poor example of a human being! One thing though, insulting a poor pig was not nice! Pigs have more class than this piece of S**T!

  • roxanne

    OMG!! Perez is so bu Tt a$$ ugly, and I can’t believe this fat piece of sH! T makes fun of people on his site. People that looks like Perez only put others down to feel better about himself.

  • melissa

    perez, who are you anyway? you’re not even famous and have done nothing in your life to become it. all you did was create some publicity stunt for yourself because you haven’t been in the media spotlight for awhile. oh and by the way, this photo is waaaaayyyyy gross and it is called Proactive!

  • Peach

    Perez can dish it out but he can’t take it. Being a gay man he should know better than to use that word. Can you imagine how he would react if someone yelled it at him.

    Also – someone who’s a friend – please give him the name of a good dermatologist. If he took some of the money spent on screwing up his hair and used it on good skin products – he wouldn’t have such bad skin.

  • Emma

    This incident is showing the world Pigface Hilton’s true colors. IMO, he should have been charged with assault for the threats he made to will i am and his manager. He is not a victim he is making himself out to be.

    Karma’s a bitch, isn’t it Mario.

  • mare

    oh please stop complaining. He is gay. Fergie is ugly and does think she is better then everyone else. So does her bandmates. Can’t they take a little criticism without freaking out and hitting someone??

  • Sam

    @aj: Exactly. The best thing that the world can do is completely ignore Perez Hilton. Don’t talk about him, tweet about him, follow his blogs or tweets, and don’t watch anything that disusses him. All he wants is attention….no matter how he gets it. If the public doesn’t give it to him eventually he will go away because he’s not getting support.

  • palis2009

    To Anne:

    Be grateful you don’t know or visited his website. His website is degradable to society. He promotes hatred. I have visited his website a long, long time ago…after that I did not have a good feeling about myself. Needless to say I did not respect myself in the morning.

  • Annie

    This is one of the reasons why most people hate gays – people like Perez tarnishing their own community’s image.

  • meh

    Ha how hypocritical for him to abuse Carrie Prejean of being antigay when he’s running around calling people fa-gs. And his whole BS about how violence is illegal but defamatory words are ok just doesn’t cut it, like hello you can get taken to court for defamation. i’m so glad i stopped visiting his bs website full of fucccckery ages ago.

  • ma74

    People are finally realizing that he is a hypocrite.His comments are hurtful and useless.I don’t feel sorry for him at all.He represents everything that’s wrong with the celebrity-obsessed world.

  • m

    Ha he’s twisting it around like he needs an apology from GLAAD?

  • chinchilla villa

    so THAT is perez hilton. and he has the nerve to make fun of others? i guess it beats getting real work.

  • [marie]

    I’m a psych major and it’s very telling that Just Jared used this horrid, unflattering photo of Perez and posted the comment Rich Juzwiak said.

    I think JJ can’t stand Perez, but is too polite (unlike Mr Lavendera) too completely sh!t on him on his blog ao he used Juswiak’s thoughts to explain his own.

    I myself can’t stand Perez, ever since he started the “Wentworth Miller is gay rumor. ” Anybody who would try to out somebody like that is just lame in my book.

    He helped get Isiah Washington fired for using the f-word but then turns around and uses it himself..? How Hypocritical..

    He’s a hypocrite and gives LBGT Americans a bad name along with Chris Crocker and Andy D!ck..

  • Sara

    Looks like Perez needs some Proactive!! He looks digusting in this pic!! Ugghhh I think I need to puke now excuse me!!

    Gross, WHO is this guy and why do we care?

  • http://meganwebgirl.com Jolie hot chin not

    I think it is disgusting. Perez spends his “career” insulting women calling them w****s and s***s and then gets up in a tizzy because someone attacked him. Granted violence is not the answer but Will’s manager was upset that he called Fergie fugly and then the hypocrisy he calls will a slur used to denigrate gay people. Perez should know just cause he says it does not mean it is ok. So does that mean if a straight personn says it out of anger in a moment of rage that it is ok? No, Perez, this is Karma. He is so vile that this was inevitable.

  • Xray

    Deep down inside Perez hates himself for being GAY. If a straight person said this Perez would call for his head to be cut off and his balls.

  • http://www.thatshideous.com that’s hideous

    haha!!
    i like the picture you chose ;)

    He is simply a disgusting and revolting person. It’s sad.

    gonna warn u because i hate this guy so bad im gonna rant on him

    1st of all ok he got hit, but this little biztch was asking for it
    last time i heard when ur in an intense conversation and one guy pushes it that’s when fists r drawn
    assault imo is a whole different thing, this my opinion
    assault is when it’s really bad for if u just ask a person for no reason
    this pus-c was asking for it
    gays dont like 2 b called that and straight ppl def dont like that
    he just wants attention imo
    ive noticed lately with his book and all that he’s been in more hollywood type stuff and i think this shiz is getting 2 him
    PEREZ UR FREAKING NOBODY!!!ALL U DO IS WRITE ON A BLOG

    and what i find hilarious is that this guy talks like if he’s some gay rights activist when he says that
    LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!
    really, i lost all u respect for u when u put those pictures of the gay screenwriter for milk, or whatever he did
    how u can do that 2 one of ur own ppl is beyond me, when i say ppl i dont mean gays but ppl who r fighting for gay rights
    and when u say that u make in excuse about u being assualted
    stop being a pus-c, it doesnt even look like u got hit bad
    nothing but some lame ass ugly biztch
    fu perez

  • Heather

    I totally lost respect for Perez when he put on his website the pictures of Milk screenwriter having sex with his partner–there was absolutely NO REASON to put that up on his website, what was the purpose??? He better watch his back–there’s more coming his way, there’s a long line of celebrities who are ready to punch his face in!!

  • TWPumpkin

    @rocky
    Sorry Rocky you are right.

  • diane

    Perez is a shit. He spends his life trashing people and judging people. Im glad someone finally thumped his ugly ass.

  • SharonT

    Will I AM is gay and in the closet. This was a fight between two gay people. Mayer is gay and in the closet got busted that’s why Mayer is jumping into it. As if John Mayer treat people better. Look at how Mayer treat women like dogs. John Mayer need to shut up, he is just trying to rise back to the top so he can use and bash more women.
