Will.i.am: Learn To Respect Others

Will.i.am: Learn To Respect Others

Will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas has released a statement regarding Sunday’s Perez-Toronto incident. Check out his message of respect:

I will not continue to comment specifically on the incident that happened in Toronto last weekend… But I would hate for my silence to be misconstrued… I do not condone harassment or violence of any kind…

No one deserves physical abuse…
And no one deserves verbal abuse…
No one deserves that…

Everyone needs to be respected…
And no ones name should be slandered in the name of hate and disrespect…
And fyi…”not every black man is a thug”…

As far as character allegations made against myself,
The members of the Black Eyed Peas,
And members of our management…
I believe that the truth will speak for itself once the details of the events are fully presented.

Hateful slurs…
Racial or gay should not be used as verbal weapons to provoke violence…

Let us all learn from the events that happened in Toronto…
That situation has already taken valuable time, energy,
And attention away from more important,
And in some cases, devastating issues happening in our world.
Thank you…

Right on, Will.i.am.

# 4

Very well said Wil.i.am.
But I think, at least just once, he needed his azz beat. =]

# 5

His was much more sound and easy to read than that long block of non-apology from Perez.

# 6

I love you Will. Right on. My bro and I just rewatched P’s video for a good laugh. Seriously, he deserves an Oscar for that melodrama!

# 7

WELL SAID!!!!!!
And fyi…”not every black man is a thug”… LOL

Yes Will! Thank you! You are an intelligent, caring, and talented human being unlike a certain unfortunate blogger. Your reflection on this incident says a lot about both characters.

I think we can tell by this post who is the bigger person here. I don’t understand why people read anything posted on PH’s hate filled blog.

Semi short and sweet and straight to the point, unlike that long-ass rant from Perez .

I <3 YOU WILL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and the rest of the BEP crew! mwaz

I cant stand Perez.. Go will!

perez made a racial slur too?

Will i am & the BEP FTW!

Ha-ha, who knew will.i.m could speak proper English – this altercation was worth to discover that he is semi literate. Although Perez might have deserved more than he got, I still cannot bring myself to praise someone for a physical assault on another being – no matter the provocation.
I do however think that the slur uttered by Ms. Hilton, as crude and inappropriate as it may have been, had a merit of truth to it; will.i.m is a homosexual man, and instead of posing as this tough African American rapper, he should fess up.

well said!

#20, is that you, Perez?

karma for Perez, he’s crying like a baby and saying he’s a human being deserving respect….what about the people and celebs he has hurt with many of his cruel lies? did he forget they are human beings too?

It’s all coming back to Perez! Life is rubbery like that! Hate comes back people!

that was very well said. i was surprised to read that perez was planning on suing in excess $25,000. for what??? if anything shouldn’t will.i.am and fergie sue for defamation and harassment and slander? i hope he doesn’t get a single penny out of them, he makes thousands for insulting others and i think thats wrong.
