Perez Hilton Whines, Issues New Statement on Assault

by at . Comments

Perez Hilton is sad.

After getting his clock cleaned by the manager of the Black Eyed Peas following a war of words outside the MuchMusic Awards in Toronto, Ont., the celebrity gossip blogger is not only bitter at his attacker, but people who don't feel really sorry for him.

While no one condones a violent assault (follow the link to check out the video of the fight), many find it difficult to sympathize with a classless idiot who:

  • Clearly relishes the role of instigator.
  • Went out of his way to cause trouble, as usual.
  • Chose terribly offensive language to provoke someone.

This upsets Perez.

Here are excerpts from his whiny statement:

"Words can hurt. I know that very well, from both sides of the fence."

"I was in an out-of-the ordinary situaton [sic] and used a word that I would not utter under normal circumstances. My intention - however misguided it may have been - was to stand up for myself and tell this belligerent man that I had enough of his badgering and was not going to continue to let him berate and intimidate me. I wanted to hurt him with the word I chose, not anyone else. Unfortunately, the one who got hurt was me and, subsequently, a lot of other people. I wish none of it had happened."

"I've come to terms with all my incongruities and am proud of who I am and what I do. In closing, words can hurt. But words should not provoke someone to violence. Stripped away from the mask of Perez Hilton, I have been extremely bothered by the public reaction to my assault. Violence should never be condoned with such statements as 'It's Karma' or 'I don't believe in violence but…'"

"In fact, several television and radio shows over the past couple of days echoed the sentiment "He had it coming.' Would they have said the same thing if I was a woman? Would I have 'deserved it' if I had been stabbed? Or shot? Or killed?"

"There are many ways to deal with disagreements, both good and bad, but violence is never the answer. Never. I now know that first-hand. It should not be condoned, promoted or accepted. No one 'deserves' to be the victim of violence."

"No one 'has it coming.' NO ONE. And victims should not be ridiculed."

What do you think? Whose side are you on?

Common scenario: geeky, overweight, glue-eating, nose-picking kid gets picked on in the playground, and vows to become evil avenger who will take out his hate on everyone. Grows up to be evil blogger who is famous for hateful comments in a hateful world. Contributes nothing to world aside from whiny hateful comments. Is shocked when world does not therefore embrace and love him. Violence may not be the answer, but this guy really has had it coming for a while. The U.S. tends to go overly P.C. in some of these issues, and a good punch in the face is still the best recipe for an asshh@le like Perez. The best would be if people just stopped paying attention to people like *Perez* entirely and focused on REAL victims in the world, of which there are many, and not some assface who incites anger by actively and aggressively trying to get them to punch him. *Perez* is not a real victim in this sense. Just in his mind.


what a joke


I'd punch him.


Hope you use the money to do something good to offset all the hate you put in the world. You are an awful person Perez Hilton.


Ouch. I guess the rest of us who have real jobs, aka ad agencies, offices, doctors, teachers, etc. are nothing compared to someone who earns his living writing trash about people and drawing little drool marks on their faces in Microsoft Paint.


I'd punch him.


Hopefully he can use the money for some plastic surgery...the guy really is quite unattractive, and not just his personality.


To all the mean people out there that don't understand that a bad comment and a punch in the face are two different things. For all the bad comments you all have stated, I'd like each of you to get your face smacked and then you would understand how I felt. Luckily for me I have a career that pays me well so I will recover in style, yet each of you are just mean and then have to return to your dirty horrible existence. After this lawsuit, you'll see who ends up the winner - Perez!!


perez is a bully in every sense of the word... we dont allow it in society especially with kids yet in the entertainment business its all good. the bully is always the first to bitch/cry/whine and try and get as much attention as they can, point and case perez hilton... deal with it!! bully got the beat down. team


Perez sucks. He is the guy that everyone loves to hate, but after a while that just turns old, like him.
