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 is full of c*rap. His video on his site shows he has a little cut under his RIGHT eye. Also the picture of him getting hit on TMZ show’s the punch came from the RIGHT side. On Idontlikeyouinthatway.com Perez is showing off a fully bruised eye on the LEFT side. He is such a liar and fraud. He should be run out of town.

    Violence never resolves anything but dam right we all would be better without this self-obsessed idiot who talks just because he has a mouth

    I’m so sick of Mario/Perez. Although it’s true that violence is not the answer, I can’t help but think that this moment has long been in the making. It was only a matter of time. And good for Will.I.Am for being an equal-opportunity thug. Just because someone is gay and an obnoxious wannabe gossip columnist doesn’t mean they can’t be confronted for their douchiness.

    I am so glad that he’s getting criticism for this. You do not go on and on about how gay rights are so important, and then use homophobic slurs like they are insults. He even said that that was the most insulting thing he could think to call him (or something along those lines). I wish that he would just stop playing the victim and admit that he did something wrong. Just because he’s gay does not mean that he can get away with saying something like that.

    This guy is a hypocrite, a famewhore, and just plain rude. There is a reason why I go on Just Jared and not that site and this just reinforced it some more.

  • patrice

    Perez is the most ugliest creature I’ve ever seen in the world!!!!!!!!! go n blog your damned A##!!

  • my mom was like, oh hell no.

    I’ve been to that guys site, once or twice but, for some reason, I couldn’t care less. If I want my celeb fix, I visit this site.

  • kat

    i think perez is a total idiot…like seriously dude. Instead of hurting other people do something more useful with your life. Plus, that video was ridiculous! The only thing Perez wanted was media attention…he got it, but what comes around goes around b!tch.

  • eden

    @Katie: i couldn’t agree more with the pop culture columnist. perez even continues to call him a “thug” disguised as a musician. i mean, are you serious? you are a disgrace to the GLBT community and a disgrace to humankind in general!!! just poof disappear!

  • sweetiepie*babycakes

    A bully is getting bullied.

    On his site, Perez Hilton called a 3 year old girl ugly.
    Perez is used to bullying children, women, and civilized human beings. Perez is hateful (he goes above and beyond gossiping and is vulgar, cruel, and despicable!!!)

    If he wants to live like a devil, then he needs welcome the HELL that he has created!!!!

  • sweetiepie*babycakes

    And Perez Hilton looks as ugly as SIN!
    How in the world, can he rip on ANYONE’S PHYSICAL APPEARANCE when he himself looks like this blob fish!

    Perez is so immature. Verbal is just as bad as physical. He got what was coming to him 4 how he treats people. I’ve visited his site and he’s even mean 2 the people he likes. I can’t believe people on his site actually feel sorry 4 him.

  • KAreenGzz

    OMFG
    he’s so ugly & fat.. i’m glad that somebody kick his fat ass.. they should kill him.. he thinks that he is so cool talkin’ shit about the others.. he’s so jealous ’cause he’s so damn ugly and uncool.. i really hope that he die

  • earthgirl

    Perez Hilton has been “abusing” people on his website for a long time. There’s celebrity gossip and then there’s malicious cyber abuse. He’s been employing the latter.

    Sometimes karma gets a big shiny spotlight.

    Tick tock, Perez, tick tock.

  • stophating

    this guy is disgusting….he is so gross about how he goes on judging other people. he judges how other people look (when he himself is hideous) the mistakes stars make (when he makes plenty errors himself)…he really has done nothing positive for the world

    PEOPLE STOP READING HIS WEBSITE!!!!!!!! SERIOUSLY, JUST STOP….DOES IT MAKE SENSE THAT A GAY MAN WOULD CALL ANOTHER GAY A F@G????? NOT AT ALL…SERIOUSLY STOP READING HIS SITE I KNOW I WILL…HES A LITTLE PRISSY WHO IS JUST AS SHADY AND AS BAD AS EVERYONE IN HOLLYWOOD…HES JUST LOOKING TO MAKE EVERYTHING BETTER FOR HIMSELF…PLEASE STOP READING HIS SITE!

  • Chrissy

    I am just surprised that he never got hit sooner!!! When you say the things he does on a website about people,.. it’s only a matter of time before it catches up with you!
    I’m so sick of his site,.. it’s always slated to what he believes in and not about just given both sides as well as the facts.

  • bluerose
