Kathy Griffin Calls Out Perez Hilton For 'Bullying' Lady Gaga: He's 'Using the Oldest Trick In The Book'
On Tuesday, comedienne Kathy Griffin launched into an online tirade accusing the blogger -- who previously swore he has turned a new leaf and stopped bullying the stars he writes about -- of "attacking" Gaga.
"Is @PerezHilton cyber bullying & trying 2 RUIN @LadyGaga (whos a FIERCE advocate 4 #LGBT rights) BC she doesnt wanna hang out w him anymore?" Griffin tweeted.
She then wrote on her Facebook:
Forgive me if I'm a little behind on this one but I've been touring like crazy and out of the country...why is the supposedly "I've stopped bullying" PerezHilton.com viciously attacking his old pal Lady Gaga on a daily basis? Didn't he try to do the same thing to Ke$ha? Did any of you see the scene in Ke$ha's MTV reality show where she breaks down in sobs after reading yet another vicious google alert at the hands of Perez Hilton?However, Perez was quick to respond to the accusations, insisting that he has never bullied the "Applause" singer but merely pointed out her chart rankings and encouraged his followers to boycott Gaga's upcoming album, ARTPOP. He wrote:
This f***ing pisses me off so much...why declare war on Lady Gaga???...who in addition to...possessing an actual skill set, you know...singing, dancing, writing songs...is a fierce advocate for the LGBTQIA community on a VERY HIGH level! Why is he using the oldest trick in the book and trying to pit women against each other? Lady Gaga's Applause "vs" Katy Perry's Roar. Who gives a f***? They are BOTH catchy songs.
@kathygriffin @ladygaga Not true. I haven't said anything mean or hurtful towards her. No name-calling. Nothing that would be #bullying. xoNeedless to say, the drama continues.
