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.”

Now won’t that be refreshing!

Proactiv much..??
Pepperoni face.

this is why i read JustJared.com and not Perez…

Feelin’ sorry for him . He needs to clean up his diet which will help his complexion.

I hope Perez reads that article! :D

I too stopped visiting his website when he posted a video and claimed it was the worst rendition of poker face ever. It was wrong of him to link to some random person on youtube to make fun of and second of all in the man he was making fun of had brain surgery so that was why he slurred his words. I have boycotted perez since then because he is simply an a…

Yeah, he should try a macrobiotic, organic diet. It will fix his face condition and his weight. Might straighten his head out too.

He’d definitely feel better about himself.

It’s so stupid to put this picture of him in the article…
AS for this story, Perez shouldn’t have insulted Will i am, of course, but come on…I think we should never accept violence like this.

i love will.i.am because i love black eyed peas i love them for standing up to perez it was maybe not in the best way but at least they said something and yes i am boycotting perez’s site

Perez should shut his mouth.. he’s just crying for attention and making stuff up.. he should search for a real talent instead of assault people on the internet

PEREZ DID THIS TO HIMSELF!
HE TALKS SOOOOO MUCH TRASH!
I’M SHOCKED HE DIDNT GET SOCKED BEFORE THIS!
HE WAS NOT A VICTIM OF VIOLENCE!
HE HAS VERBALLY AND MENTALY ABUSED PEOPLE LONG ENOUGH!
AND NOW WITH HIS DISGUSTING SLURS ON THE GAY COMMUNITY
THE BACKLASH HAS BEGUN!
JUST LIKE THE TIME OLD SAYING:
“DON’T LET YOUR MOUTH WRITE A CHECK YOUR BUTT CAN’T CASH”
SORRY GUYS BUT, AMONG MEN, IF YOU TALK TRASH YOU HAVE TO PAY.
DON’T BE A NANCY AND MAKE A VIDEO OF YOUSELF CRYING AND PUT IT ON THE INTERNET!!!!
LOL

I just love Just Jared, such a possitive site, all celebrity talk yet no hateful posts. Love you Just Jared! :) best site by far.

I really do think that PEREZ had it coming.. he criticizes the whole entire ENTERTAINMENT BUSINESS and thinks the he can get away with it…

What’s worse are all these actors/actresses who feel the need to SUCK UP to him, so that they won’t be one day the target of his BLOG…

He is not an authority figure, nor someone who needs to be placed in a pedestal… HE IS A NASTY PERSON and I DO NOT KNOW WHY THIS DUDE IS EVEN FAMOUS!!! like how he always tell the GIRLS OF HOLLYWOOD…

He always fight for GAY RIGHTS and always talking RIGHTEOUS, but how many careers or little girls has he trashed on his BLOG (and he actually makes money!??!?)….

DO NOT BE A TWOFACE PEREZ!!!! Do not try to act RIGHTEOUS, when all you are about is HATE..

So, APOLOGIZE and face that this is the end of your career.. I really, honestly would love for your NON-SENSICAL (FULL OF HATE) BLOG to be terminated!

@Fabienne:

MAYBE PEOPLE HAVE BEEN WANTING FOR THIS DUDE TO SHUT UP!

We don’t promote VIOLENCE in any way, shape or formc and I do not condone what is done to him.. but he had it coming… and this shows that not everyone is willing to shut up while his BLOG makes money off of slamming people! (artists..)

@Fabienne:

Fabienne – I may be wrong, but I thought I read this jack*ss started it previous to his encounter. He shouldn’t sling sh*t if he can’t take it himself. He’s a waste of space.

@jo:

YOU ARE SO SPOT ON!

@Kahlan: Don’t provoke violence if you’re against violence. Perez had this one coming..he should really consider this a wake up call.

This whole gay fad will be dying down soon. In a year or two people won’t be flaunting it but will be returning to better sense.

Perez makes me ill. I loathe how he calls out everyone from anything to being fat to being a homophobe, yet he’s the worst scum on earth who makes millions on reporting trash that he calls gossip. Speaking of being fat, just because he lost a few lbs, and I mean a FEW, he seems to think he can freely call anyone and everyone fat now…what a punk he is.

Perez imitates the Kate Gosselin look-cut with a gay twist.

Perez, stop taunting people that can kick your ass. Not smart at all and makes you look ugly.

In my opinion even if it was no one from the BEP who hit him, Perez got what he deserved. Perez is the one who called Will.i.am what he did and there is no denying that. I think Perez is drama queen and loves to stretch the truth.
