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…

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.

calling a black man a thug when he isn’t clearly shows his racism
anyways
will i am is a good man

I like Will. Perez showed how much of a punk he is after all o fthis. I used to read Perez but he is so biased and rude. Props to Will for staying class.

@MFM: Obviously you are an idiot who does not know what went down. Will did not touch Perez, and Perez was not beat up. 2 punches in the face that were so soft there was no bruising.

will is one of the sweetest celebrities i’ve ever met.

he is truly a nice guy and im sad his image is ruined

SUPER !
TEAM WILL.I.AM- GOOD LUCK

MFM, accept the backlash. Perez is hated by the majority.

It looks like Will.i.am won this feud. I’ve never been a fan of him or his band but I give him props for not acting like a little immature cry baby and taking the high road.

“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

@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.

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.

@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.

Agree wtih medic#23.
Team Will.i.am & BEP.

@MFM: Perez we know that’s you ! ! Go cry on your own site ! !

@tj: hahaha you’re funny

! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! TEAM WILL.I.AM ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

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.

we know Perez keep going on all these sites posing as other people, hahaha, you are done Perez, now STFU and go somewhere, cry baby, start stuff, and then act like a big baby, WILL I AM IS A CLASSY GUY, WHO TOOK THE HIGH ROAD, TEAM BEP-WILL I AM.

LOL. Seriously Perez go cry about that tiny scratch on your face somewhere else!

will i am is not guy, Perez is still trying to slander him, if will denies it, then he is homophobic and Perez will use that against him, to get back at will i am, Perez is a phony jerk, that got his azz beat and is trying to get revenge. TEAM WILL I AM.

Well said.@Emilia: I showed my brother and we both were laughing. Seriously when he goes 2 say he didn’t wanna start a fight he pauses 2 think about it!

SORRY, WILL I AM IS NOT GAY, PEREZ IS TRYING TO GET REVENGE.

WILL I AM IS NOT GAY, PEREZ IS TRYING TO GET REVENGE.

Yes, I’m Perez. You guys are SOOOOO smart to figure that out! Real Mensa material you are. (before your self-congratulatory pats on the back, please note the tone of sarcasm, dummies)
