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.”

some day All the damage that these doing goes go in your against , expect that this was very prompt !!

Kudos to Jared for posting that horrible picture of Perez. This is exactly what Perez would have done in this situation. It’s good to give him some of his own medicine.

EW that picture is disgusting.
I think perez is taking this WAY too seriously i mean so what he got punched! People get punched all the time he doesnt have to go on his blog and twitter and write about it 24/7. NO ONE CARES!!!!!!
God he needs to grow up and be a man.

I can’t stand him. I was at his dumb site 1x and never again. Saying Jonathan Knight is gay. Oh Perez only wishes.

Perez should not be allowed to be a part of award shows or beauty pageants. He causes acute drama and gives the events he attends a bad rep. Perez is hateful and has hurt the gay community. He needs to understand he is not the only sole on earth that deserves rights and opinions. He does not understand this.

Thanks for using the “Fugly” picture of him. ranted and raved about I. Washington saying the ****** word. For whatever rhyme or reason he is now giving himself permission to use it. He is full of ****. It won’t work. He has never been attacked physically?! But let understand… he beats people down daily verbally. That’s okay? No repercussions? I don’t think so. Life is rubbery like that. It comes back. He hates on YOUNG people for crying out loud. I’m surprised Demi Moore didn’t put her foot in his ass a long time ago for hating on her daughter. He’s a nuisance! Walks around like an authority. He is everything I don’t want my children to be. He is a hateful man, living in hateful skin with a hateful spirit. That’s a triple negative. I hope he enjoys the fame and the money but remembers how he got it. What we are witnessing is all the hate he dished out coming right back at him. I imagine he is feeling a bit uncomfortable right about now. He can’t handle it. Oh yeah, he’ll handle it by continuing to **** on everyone and their kid. It’s self hatred 101. I hope his eye heals nice and slow. Better, I hope he hits himself in the other eye for being such an ass.

@Fabienne: Perez usually calls women horrible names.This happened at a party after the event and PEREZ and the hitter were probably tired a little drunk. Perez should not be allowed out of his house.

then he ties up the 911 lines in toronto by having everyone on twitter call the cops AFTER he was the one who called Will the “F” word and on his ranting video response calls Fergie fugly again and calls Will the “F” word. What if there were sick people trying to get thru the 911 line Perez? I guess this diva vile of a person thinks it is all about him. Gross. Karma.

@[marie]:

i think everybody picked up on that ;) but good points.

LET’S BOYCOTT HIS WEBSITE and HIM!

boycott this mess @ 06/23/2009 at 11:00 pm

T-bone #161 is right on. Maybe then whoever this perez is will get a real job.

I’ve stopped visiting his site too. I just hate him so much. He just keeps on doing these things, some of the recent things that made me really dislike him: The whole Miss California thing that he wrote WAY to much about, the way he treated Adam Lambert, what he did to Dustin Lance Black (nothing to be ashamed over for Dusin but so f-ing stupid of Perez to post those private picture of someone who doesn’t want to be Paris Hilton or LiLo), and now this.

I can not for the life of me understand why he called Will.I.Am the F word. I mean, we all know what he said about the whole Isaiah Washington scandal, and now he basically says the exact same things. What is the difference? Yeah, there is none. I do not support violence, but my God Perez got what he deserved. He should not have said that. I hope everyone stops going to his site so that it once and for all can die and ppl can forget about PH.

He was funny and entertaining once, but that was a long time ago and now it seems like he is just mean. Like rly, rly mean w/o it being meant as funny or you know.It’s a different tone and I don’t like that he constantly wants to bring ppl down. That is not entertainment in my eyes. So f-k Perez. Let’s make 2009 the year where Perez disapperas and becomes a memory. He doesn’t desvere to have this much power when he abuses it.

It’s OK for one man to beat up on another. I can’t wait to some of your a$$e$ get kicked. Nobody deserve to be hit. May be Chris Brown should be let off because a lot of people don’t like her. This is Pr rubbish to help get Black Eye peas people off the hook. Who ever through the punch should go threw the same trail Chris Brown went through rather you like Perez are not you bunch of hypocrites.

Piggerez fat fuc*k is fuc*king disgusting example of a human being. He is beyond thrash. He steals money and other stuff. You can read about it on Perez Revenge.He is a know racist. You just have to go to his site to see how he is always presenting black/Asian celebs in a negative portrayal.

This piece of fat blob is calling Fergie of Balck Eyed Peas repulsive names when he used to be her friend. What a backstabbing cun*t.
That fugly tranny GAGA better watch out when her so called friend piggerez attacks her.

Let’s hope he goes away for good this year. Everybody should boycott this mega cun*t’s website.

@Katie: I completely agree with you. I am officially boycotting his website.

@Pascall: I’m boycotting it too. And like someone else said, I disagree with physical violence in any way. But by gosh he was hit 3 times and it doesn’t look like he was bleeding. I had an abusive X that beat me bloody numerously and that is when you call and make a big deal of things. I don’t condone it, but I don’t understand his hissy about something that doesn’t look like it even left a mark on him?

I can think of something positive.

He’s a brutally honest and cruel guy, yes.

But he keeps the stars and their egos in check. Sometimes all of us just need to come back down to reality

@faith: Yes but he has to do it in a fair way. Perhaps by only picking on things that the stars actually do or say themselves. I haven’t been on his site in a very long time but someone said he was posting pictures of people having sex and whatnot. Gross and crossing the line if you ask me.

Perez is a freaking hypocrite. He can sure dish it out but can’t take it!

This guy is so gross.
He is a loud mouth, phony, suck-up, greedy and full of bullshi$
guy. I don’t care if he’s gay or straight. He’s obnoxious.

@Fabienne:

I agree with the other comments. Physical abuse is not cool, but verbal abuse is just as bad. I think the fact that anyone on this site or elsewhere who compares this situation to Chris,/Rhianna or any other abusive situation is offensive. Perez is using the same argument to gain sympathy and all he is doing is minimizing real physical abuse and doing a disservice. To me, that makes Perez an even a bigger scumbag.

@Kahlan:

I’m curious why the reader thinks it is stupid to put the picture of perez on the article. That’s what Perez looks like. I wonder if that same commenter also goes to the Perez site and asks him to stop posting pictures as well.

I think the comments on this site defending Perez are actually written from Perez. I can’t imagine anyone with a brain and common sense who thinks Perez is in the right here.

anonymous @ 06/24/2009 at 1:23 am

I filled out the petition to make sure that Perez does not present on the Teen Awards. Talk about a terrible role model and undeserving of being on any show or site.
