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, 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!

    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 ******** up his hair and used it on good skin products – he wouldn’t have such bad skin.

    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 *****, isn’t it Mario.

    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??

    @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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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..

    Jolie hot chin not Says:

    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 Says:

    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.

    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

    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!!

    SharonT Says:

    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.
