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…

    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.

    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.

    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 *****.

    Whoever said before that I was Perez f**k your mother. And to all of those who claim that will.i.m isn’t gay – LOL – wake up, and smell the sh*t people. I saw his interview on the view (courtesy of YouTube), and all the girly, sissy facial expressions he makes throughout – trust me, that “THUG” (LOL), is a HOMO!

    Well said mate. Will.i.am is a legend.

    That fug*ly swine of dripping fat is full of it. I am sure thats how the swine flu got started by That pig face human. He is so ugly yet he insists on calling everyone else trannies or gay when they are not.

    haha Says:

    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.

    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

    shurly Says:

    I agree with everybody else. Violence in NEVER the answer, but if I go see a black man and call him a f*****, I’ll probabley get beaten (or slapped), and I will deserve it. Sometimes, people have to be careful what they say to others.

    And MFM, I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t just stand there like an idiot if someone was insulting you again and again.

    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.
