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

Rush Limbaugh incites hate so does that mean he should be punched in the face????

TEAM PEREZ – Will.I.am came to Perez, talks **** and provacate P. I could talk normal to him than the situation wouldn´t escalated! They got to much money that they can´t except that somebody don´t likes their music???? LAME!

Very well said, Will.I.Am! Much much better than Pee-rez! LOL!

@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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

it seems as though it would be to little to late from the man who was the instigator

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.

The saddest part is how Perez is getting so much undeserved attention here on JJ. I’m sure he’s loving that even though the majority of people are against him and basically are saying he deserved it which is the truth.

@lexi:

umm…I think “showing class and walking away” was the big mistake the Jews made. There is only one way to deal with a dangerous sociopath…confront them …if necessary, physically, because unlike the rest of us, they really don’t feel anyone else’s pain but their own.

PH now feels pain…but only his own…not an individual likeFergie’s, not a group like the gay community’s', and not an organization like Glaad….and only his pain is real to him…nothing else exists.

@lexi: Did Will.i.am instruct his manager to punch Perez?

BOYCOTT Perez and his advertisers:
TV Land (“She’s Got the Look”)
ModCloth.com
HBO (“Hung”)
Express.com

Ypu will find contact info on each of their sites. Please email and/or call them. This makes a difference and IT IS WORKING!!!

rantee…good idea, I will do it.

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.

THANK YOU JARED FOR PROVING CELEBRITY NEWS WITHOUT MAKING IT ALL ABOUT YOU AND DRAMA. You have proven yourself to be a resourceful and respectful young man.

I’ve just read Perez’s latest apology, and I have to say:
How noble…
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.
YOU WILL NEVER LEARN. you are an idiot.

Liar liar pants on fire!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hope you are sued and I hope you lose fans.

I can’t believe ANYONE is siding with you, other than your fellow neurotic celebs who can’t stand Perez outing them as the IDIOTS they are.

The truth is, you are as insecure and neurotic as the rest of them, which is why you instigated trouble with Perez.

This statement, which is an obvious fabrication from your PR people, may fool the american idiot, but there are many who aren’t.

You can’t say one thing and do another – that makes you a hypocrite, and that you are.

I’m so done with your band and your lead singer is a FUG.

zk must be a huge perez the hate monger’s fan or stalker. Same thing really in perez’s case.

OK…I called all the advertisers, and I also directed them to this blogsite to see the feedback. I encourage all people who stand “against hatred and verbal violence” to do the same. Lets all not just complain..lets take action against sociopaths like PH.

What if this was stagedm like Bruno and Eminem? Lol.
