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 ***** GEZZ HIS SISTER MAY BE IN THE NEWS MORE THAN HE IS BUT SHE ISNT AN ATTENTION ***** LIKE HIM!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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……

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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…

    CaliWriter Says:

    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.

    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.
