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…
will.i.am

    Ilia Says:

    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.

    anna Says:

    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.

    MFM Says:

    I believe Perez. Will.i.am (what kind of ridiculous name is that anyway?!), you’re a jerkoff. And who are these people commenting above??? “well said, well said.” Are all of you Will.i.am posting with different names? Or are you all sheep without a brain in your heads? Perez gets beat up and now that’s okay?
    “Racial or gay [slurs] should not be used as verbal weapons to provoke violence…”, this dope says. Sounds like you are trying to build your case in court that the violence was justified because he called you a name. You are so transparent.

    LOL I LOVE THAT. OBVIOUSLY SOMEONE CANNOT READ. WILL I AM CLEARLY SAID VIOLENCE IS NOT RIGHT..

    AND VIOLENCE COMES IN MANY FORMS- EMOTIONAL AND PHYSICAL.

    Will was standing up for Fergie and what did he get? Pft

  35. 35
    accept it Says:

    @JJJ:

    You said it. And don’t forget that it was already caught on video that Perez uttered the gay and racial slur. And by Hilton’s admission, he thought of the worst thing he could call Will, and a gay slur was what he came up with. If there’s anybody being brainwashed, it’s MFM swallowing the Perez ****. Pardon the vulgarity.

  36. 36
    athena Says:

    Perez can dish it out, but can’t take it….Perez needs to shut his mouth anyway. At one time, I thought he was funny, but he’s just screaming for attention by being as obnoxious and snarky as can be….all this aside, I agree with Will.I.AM..no one should have to resort to violence, and that goes for verbal abuse too.

  37. 37
    MFM Says:

    @JJJ: I know the claim is that Polo hit Perez. Read carefully dummy. Will is building his case in court indeed, as a potential co-defendant in a civil case or at the very least as a witness for Polo. Besides, Perez bled from those “soft punches.” Also, as far as the law goes, bruising is not required for a person to be charged and held to answer to an assault charge.

    sorry, but he is a wuss and he is not being completely truthful.

    will,i.am is a closet case and that is why this whole thing escalated. perez is also a jerk, so i don’t think taking sides is necessary. they both are gay idiots in the music or gossip industry.

    Streakin thru Says:

    Whole thing turned into a huge publicity stunt. Everyone is getting attention out of it who is joining into it. And I almost think Perez is doing it on purpose but I’m not sure if he’s that clever. Maybe he is. Like kids in the candy store for all the drama llama’s out there. But some of it IS really funny.

  52. 52
    Ali Says:

    Quite frankly.. the person in the wrong here is the one who actually his Perez – which wasn’t Will.i.Am. Perez keeps going on and on and on about how “violence isn’t the answer”, but – hello – Will.i.Am didn’t hit you. He didn’t resort to violence. Polo is apparently the one who hit Perez and Polo should be the one having his name out there… all Will.i.Am did was confront Perez. I’ve seen the video too, Will.i.Am wasn’t yelling. Perez was wrong for the slurs and Polo was wrong for hitting… but I personally think Will.i.Am did about as much as Fergie… he just confronted Perez. That’s it.

  53. 53
    tAMMY Says:

    It’s nice to see WILL.I.AM take the high road. I find it hard to believe that P.H. was that badly injured when he was obviously able to twitter about it all night. If he needed the police and medical attention why didn’t he just call them himself? He was looking for the attention. Just like a child, he provoked the BEP all night and then got what he deserved. He was looking for the publicity. This is a guy who started out slamming all celebrities in a disgusting way, but then he got to become one of them. Not for anything other than being controversial. I for one stopped going to his site a long time ago. Just like a child the less we pay attention the more he screams. But eventually he’ll run out of steam and when we ignore him, he’ll go away. As far as I’m concerned, I don’t even know who PH is. Just another fame *****.

    its really ridiculous how some people are saying this Perez loser was beat up or assaulted..lol, are you honestly saying that if you were the one he yelled that derogatory comment at, you won’t do anything?? haha.. if he walked away and still got hit then yea he was assaulted but he was asking for trouble so he got what he deserved.

  71. 71
    haha Says:

    @ILOVEPH: lol not everyone makes fun of celebs, where did you get that? giving an opinion and insulting somebody are two different things and people that support Perez for doing that are no different from him. NO BREEDING, NO ETIQUETTE, NO CLASS.. Perez is a joke :D

    Perez Hilton is an unhappy and frustrated person – a social parasite who got rich by writing mean things and insulting people. He should take a mirror and spit at his own reflection. Perez, get a life! You are miserable. Your video where you are histerically foaming about “the incident” raises more suspicion whether you are mentally stable…I do not think you are well.

    perez what a jackass you are. you took a gamble by runningyour mouth (to the wrong people it turns out) and you got punished.you can’t go around calling people offensive names and then throwyourself on the altar of free speech. yeah you had a right to saywhat you wanted and the other party has a right to respond (be it physically or verbally).

    one day, if i decide to go around callingguys f*****s or other girls d***s, i’d expect the worse. if you had called me that, by the time i was through, you’d be lucky torremember your own name, be it mario or perez. word’s are powerfulthings, how do you think fights get started? if you can’t handle theresponsibility of using words (without hurting people), then shut the f***up. you should be ashamed.

  78. 78
    Brownsugar Says:

    I am NO fan of perez so i won’t bother pretending that he’ll learnfrom this experience and become a better person because frankly hehas neither the brain nor the capacity.

    @Ilia:

    Apparently you are the one who is semi-literate. The altercation did not take place with “Ms.Hilton”, as you suggest, but with Perez Hilton the blogger. Your small brain also failed to absorb that it is Perez Hilton and not Will I.Am who is a homosexual, thus the controversey over his use of the word. Now go work on your word comprehension and quit being a mean little bigot!

    ehnso Says:

    ilia … correction: you’re taking the comments all too personally. lol.

    and for some of the twits that keep insisting that will clocked perez, it was the manager. even perez modified his initial story and now claims it was the manager. actually, based on the picture of that punch, it seems perez was blind-sided. not sure if he even knew who really clocked him.

    and whether will.i.am is gay or not, that shouldn’t matter. perez still uttered a slur that he had strongly condemned before. he used it as a derogatory term, by his own admission.

    while violence isn’t the answer, it really isn’t surprising that he got the reaction that he did. i hope perez’s newest apology is genuine. this time, he even utilized paragraphs.

    @rosita: rosita, can you think of any better reason to punch someone in the face than someone who promotes hate and violence? Perez Hilton is verbally violent, and violence breeds violence. He is a sociopath….only his feelings are real to him, or count. Rush Limbaugh is the same.

  105. 105
    Karern Says:

    I guess Perez never heard the old saying “Turnaround is fair play”. He LIES about many celebrities and thinks it’s funny, he went out and just tried to make someone mad, he faced retaliation for it, and now he cries. I’m surprised something like this and a whole lot worse has not happened before now. Violence is never the answer? Well, neither is defamation of characters, verbal abuse, or lies. Get over it, Perez, and learn something.

    However, I have a feeling Perez is happy over this since it has given him much needed attention as his “material” is becoming old and boring.

  106. 106
    laylo Says:

    Plus, verbal violence is a predictor of physical violence, just like kids who torture animals often go on to murder. PH is on his way…towards , and someone needs to take him in hand (or fist) and say…no more buddy…back off.

  107. 107
    laylo Says:

    It is time we called what PH writes and says VERBAL VIOLENCE. You tell me one parent with a kid who has been continually verbally attacked who wouldn’t advise them to defend themselves with their fists if talking to them doesn’t work. Fergie and Will i am tried talking…didn’t work…then someone on their team who cared about them took the next logical step to stop the cruelty and violent atItacks on them.

    Hitler never did any of the real killing…does that make him innocent? If he was around, I hope no one would defend his “right” to abuse others.

    rAZZIEromato Says:

    Perez is a loser for just craves attention. He pulled the stunt once before when he made a video where he cursed miss ugly tranny california her for warped view and went on various tv shows to show how righteous he was and that he stood up for gay rights.(only when the media is watching right Perez)

    Then he pulled the same act when he was attacked in toronto over the weekend. Made a video where once again he ranted and ranted in a screeching deafening voice. Guess since he did not receive any call backs from any of the talk shows he quickly changed his tune.What a loser. He even dissed the GLAAD (because they stated that he was wrong in using a derogattory term used against gays) in his latest statement by saying
    “I am NOT apologizing to GLAAD. I could care less about them, my former employers.”
    Drop dead pathetic example of a human ****.

    violence is never the answer. yes, perez called him something he regrets (well, he SAYS he regrets) but the will i am shouldn’t have been a coward and gave it back to him! he shouldn’t have had his manager hit him! i’m not supporting the black eyed peas for being violet towards someone. that said, i’m not supporting perez for calling someone the f word. but to those saying will.i.am. should sue for harrassment and slander, perezis suing for physical abuse MUCH WORSE and could also sue for harrassment as well.

    i’m guessing everyone saying will.i.am. is classy is very uneducated. when is getting your manager to punch a guy classy?! this apology just gets himself in more trouble because although he’s saying “learn to respect others” he said learn that lesson HIMSELF! now i’m not saying perez is classy (he shouldn’t have called him what he did) but you people know NOTHING about class! class is walking away from someone antagonizing you. class is NOT will.i.am.

    Perez gave another half-a*ssed apology on his site. He’s still playing the victim and making excuses for his actions. I’ve been banned from Perez’s site. Oh, boo hoo hoo. lol I’ve criticized him for months for his hateful speech. He’s banned a lot of people because they criticized him. But if he bans them ALL, he will have few comments on his site lol.

    I’ve never liked Perez, but he USE to have some good news items, but since the Miss. U.S.A thing he’s become more of a hate-monger than ever. He needs to lose ALL of his advertisers. He also became very lazy and was just basically taking news items from other sites and reporting on them 2-3 days AFTER the fact.

    It’s funny, he manages to issue an apology which doesn’t really apologize to the people that it should.
    how about a flat out sorry to will.i.am for lying (saying he hit you) and calling him a f***** which of course started the entire physical element of this incident.
    how about a sorry to fergie for calling her fugly and saying you wish she impales herself.
    how about he say sorry to Polo for him having to waste the use of his knuckles on his fugly face to put you back in line.
    how about a sorry for your overall mean spirited, racist toned attitude towards will.i.am’s soft spoken manner.

I was completely disgusted that he attacked Adam Sandler’s child for NO reason. I was appalled when he published photos of Black with his partner having sex. I was outraged when he forced people to come out when they wanted to keep their sexuality private. Perez knows its over for him. Polls are showing 80-95% supporting BEP and not him! Its over…he is the laughing stock (celebs are making fun of him) and he has lost his base. He is toast.

    BoycottToBankrupt @ 06/25/2009 at 1:14 pm Perez Hilton is RACIST. He called Will.I.Am a “THUG” and FALSELY accused him of assault simply because Will is black. He thought the public would automatically believe that Will was violent SIMPLY BECAUSE he is black.

    Perez Hilton is HOMOPHOBIC. He said Will did not deserve respect because he is a “F*CKING F*GGOT!! Hilton therefore obviously believes gays are not worthy of respect.

    Hit Perez Hilton where it hurts — in the wallet. Contact his advertisers and tell them you will NOT patronize their products or services so long as they advertise on his site. Start by contacting http://www.hbo.com and DEMAND that they pull their current ad from his site.

    This subhuman pig does not respect women, children, blacks, gays or anyone with whom he disagrees politically. The only thing he respects of the almighty dollar. BANKRUPT HIM

Or simply because PH said the person was fugly. This guy is dangerous, and so are alot of his followers.

Never. I can’t promise if someone shouted a slur at me that I would not punch them and I am just a skinny girl but I would really be upset so Perez put himself in the line of fire. How dare he called Fergie fugly again in his melodramatic plea. Grow up Perez you bully. Outing people and calling celeb kids awful names and women awful names – Perez is a pig. Plain and simple.

    Perez has consistantly slandered and painted several celebrities in a bad light. It is mind boggling how he believes he can go as far as calling celebrites “gay faces” “whores” ” *****” “FUG” and more but NO ONE can call him out on it or defend themselves. Every time someone has even hinted being upset with him, Perez goes on a tangent and says a diatribe against them. It just goes to prove how immature, insecure, and selfish he is. Karma comes in many ways; sometimes really ugly. It all depends on the severity of the person’s action; in this case, extremely. I believe this is just a cry for attention.

    Perez is so concerned about suing for his ‘injury’; he should be thinking about that fact that Canada might have a beef with HIM for using hate speech in a public place. Some Canadians have suggested that there is such a law in Canada. If so, Perez himself could be charged. What is unforgivable is that by his own words Perez used the term F***** deliberately. It wasn’t something said in the heat of the moment without thought. He accused HIMSELF on the first video, now he’s trying to back out of it. I’d really like to see his blog GONE. There are many more places to get our celebrity fix without giving this excuse for a human being a forum.

    =====
    Ok it’s a slow day lol. Do you really think Will.I.Am HAD his manager hit Perez. Is it so far fetched to think that the manager did it on his own? Almost everyone on this site is pissed at Perez and would HIT him if given the opportunity. Why would you think Will.I.Am would have ‘had” his manager hit Perez. He could have decked the big crybaby himself, but HE showed restraint. If anyone was a coward it’s the big attention hog Perez; he hides behind a computer insulting celebrities AND their small children. BTW you you’re not supporting THE BLACK EYE PEAS WERE VIOLENT towards anyone; not ONE of the PEAS hit him, the manager did. That’s like calling YOU violent if your FRIEND hits someone. As for slander, Perez PUBLICLY accused Will.I.Am of hitting him, when he didn’t. Please stay focused

    Why do people keep bringing up the BS rumor that Will.I.AM is gay? Like that is any type of justification for Perez’s actions. In fact, that would make his slur all the more horrific honestly. Inflicting that term on a fellow homosexual. I, for one, do not believe that Will.I.Am is gay. But quite frankly, Closeted or not, Out or not Will.I.Am could be the gayest thing since gay came to gaytown and that STILL wouldn’t excuse or justify Perez and his provocative verbal assault.

    I’m going to loose my mind if one more person says “They have to expect people to not like their music”.. THAT IS NOT WHAT HAPPENED. Will defended Fergie because she was angry Perez talks so much **** about her yet acts like her friend in person.. he is so fake and she got angry. If you watch the video on TMZ you can only hear Perez screaming hateful things..while Will’s voice is barely heard.. he was not screaming.

    Perez is mentally ill. He said in his written complaint that Perez and Mario are two different people.. he is crazy.

    Why are people so down on Perez Hilton? His gossip site isn’t any worse than a lot of others and certainly not as bad or hateful as some gossip sites. Try Michael K at DListed or Ian Halperin at IUC or a bunch of others that spew out hateful gossip – some wittier than others – but just the same they do it to make money. There is nothing that Hilton does that others don’t also do.
    .
    I really do think Hilton attracts a lot more anger from people because he is so blatantly gay and sometimes silly but mostly because he is so very, in your face gay.
    .
    There is NO excuse for physically assaulting another person unless it is in defense of yourself or another. Will.i.am’s press release sounds exactly like he is equating perceived unkind words with physical violence. Sorry. They are not. Will.i.am is just sticking up for his manager and trying to justify the assault.

    First of all, Will did NOT punch Perez. Perez yelled out homophobic insults to Will and his friend allegedly punched him. Will was calmly trying to get Perez’s explanation for verbally abusing fergie LOUDLY at a party.

    The Peas did NOT “follow ” dipshit Perez anywhere. HE came into the bar that Will was a dj at. IT was the PEAS party. I Know Perez and his followers think he is a real celebrity, but he is a leechy joke. The Peas were perforoming and won an award at the much music awards in Canada.

    Fergie, thinking that ******* Perez was basically just kidding on his site, went up to him and said “why do you not like….”? She did not yell at him. Perez starting LOUDLY yelling horrible mean insults to her. He was verbally abusing her so loud in the club other patronns heard it.

    FErgie being human, got upset and was crying and went to Will and told him. Wil being nice guy and caring about a person he describes as a sister, was very upset. He and the Peas went to another party “perez” – hot his real name, was at. They did not follow him. ******* Perez let the Ultra party very much eariler than the Peas.

    The confrontation outside of the hotel was because Will was verbally asking idiot Perez why he did that to Fergie. He also said Perez had a right to hate the music, but don’t be disrespectful. Like calling a woman a “*****” or “fugly’ in public. It was NOT about the music, it was about his disgusting woman hating insults to Fergie loudly in public.

    Will I am was being pretty reasonable, and Perez yelling out something about Will not being a real artist but a “******”. VEry nice from a man who wanted Isiah fired for the same words.

    Alegedly Will’s friend and manager did not want to see his friend get insulted so he gave Perez a well deserved punch. He did not beat him, the cow was able to tweet and whine for hours. he barely has a freaking scratch.

    Perez has called the Peas “thugs” and “subhuman”. Sounds racist to me. And he also showed what a liar he is by accusing will for hours until the manager turned himself in. Nothing will did was like a thug, it was like a friend. If they were “thugs’ they would have done more than give him a well deserved tiny scratch on his ugly face.

    So perez showed he was full of crap by ending his video yelling out insults to Fergie. He lied again when saying he nicely just commented on their albums. His hilarious rant video showed who he really is and what he is capable of.

    What is funny is the Mathew Sheppard foundation will not accept Perez’s donation from the law suit, because he provoked the fight using the word ‘fa g got”.

    This shows the kind of mentality Perez defenders have. They are all wacko about violence, but someone is able to yell insults and they have “merit” because a person might be gay?

    YOu also do not respect a person’s privacy or right to not share their sexuality – and you are into stereotypes – sayin will is gay even if he has a girlfriend and never has even had a rumor about him being around a man.
