GLAAD: Not Too Happy With Perez Hilton

GLAAD: Not Too Happy With Perez Hilton-photo

Gossip maven Perez Hilton is getting another beatdown—and this time it's from the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation.

Hilton—who claims to have gotten into a violent skirmish with Black Eyed Peas' will.i.am at the Much Music Video Awards on Sunday—is being called out by GLAAD for hurling homophobic slurs in his video report on the incident, according to OK! Magazine.

"I don't need to respect you, and you're a f*g," Hilton said, addressing will.i.am, in the video, which was posted on his Web site on Monday. "You're gay, and stop being such a f*ggot."

Responding to the video, GLAAD's senior director of Media Programs Rashad Robinson admonished, "These are vulgar antigay slurs that feed a climate of hatred and intolerance toward our community. For someone in our own community to use it to attack another person by saying that it is 'The worst possible thing that thug would ever want to hear,' is incredibly dangerous."

Robinson added that Hilton's use of such language "legitimizes use of a slur that is often linked to violence against our community. And it sends a message that it is OK to attempt to dehumanize people by exploiting antigay attitudes."

Naturally, Hilton has issued a response to GLAAD's response, telling TMZ.com, "I am saddened GLAAD chose to victimize me further by criticizing me for how I non-violently dealt with a very scary situation that, unfortunately, turned violent. While I doubt I will get an apology from GLAAD, nor do I expect one, I would just hope people know how difficult it is to intellectualize a situation and think rationally when a thug disguised as a musician is screaming at your face and intimidating you. I am just very fortunate and grateful that nothing more serious happened to me."

    I feel like what comes around goes around. It is very easy to let hated flow from the mouth. Hilton has made a career out of it, but now, he is gitting a taste of his own medicine. I do not feel sorry one bit that someone sucker punched him in his big head, kinda suprised that it didn't happen sooner. Note to Hilton- stop crying like a baby and get over it.

    Perez is a terrible example of the gay community. He is mean, ruthlessly rude, and hurtful to everyone that he can't step on his effort to get to the top. He started this, and while it's unfortunate that it had to end in violence, it's over and he shouldn't be surprised by the outcome. Shame on you Perez. I commend GLAAD for voicing what is true.

    Anyone can become a celebrity -- where did he come from?? How could they build him up like that -- well it looks like it is time for the fall. He has done enough

    i used to love perez for his catty, sharp tongued wit.. but in the past year, with his popularity growing, he became less entertaining and more whiney and preachy... picking personal vendettas with certain celebs, leaving those that deserve it the most (Madonna) unscathed because of his boner for her. the clock is ticking on his fifteen minutes and things at perezhilton.com haven't been the same since his Hot Topic collection came out. and, oh how fantastic was john mayer's twitter takedown of the "gossip gangster"? priceless... i may now be able to listen to "your body is a wonderland" without wanting to poke myself in the ears with a pencil.

    I agree with everyone in here. It is sad, however, that he keeps popping up at events like this and gets so much tv time? Why do people like to watch losers?

    Nice people ;)

    While you are 100% entitled to your opinion, and can pretty much write whatever you want, please keep the direct hate-speech to a minimum.

    Thanks, Celebuzz!

    Perez Hilton has done more to hurt the Gay community than anyone else that i know. This man must be filled with self loathing. He has called them names that any Straight person would be condemned for using, yet the Gay community continues to support him. Maybe they should now rethink their position of support. Obviously his only loyalty is to himself. He has shown explicit pictures of a Gay couple engaging in sex while at the same time ridiculing them. He has 'outed ' people who didn't want to be outed. He has ridiculed people who haven't admitted they are Gay. Is this what the Gay community wants? Now, he think GLAAD owes HIM an apology? Perez 's ego is monumental. He is clueless, manipulative, narcissistic and a fraud. It's about time that we ALL put him in his place.

    I find it ironic how up in arms Perez was a few years ago when Isaiah Washington called T.R. Knight a fag on the set of Grey's Anatomy, yet here he is hurling the same insults at someone else. After the former incident, Hilton went on for days about how Washington was a homophobe and such insluts cannot be tolerated nowadays. For a gay rights activist, Perez isn't doing such a good job of representing his community. Personally, I'd like this all to blow up in his face. He got what was coming to him. All human rights issues aside, you can't expect to publish hateful things about people daily and NOT have people upset with you. Kudos to wil.i.am for sticking up for Fergie.

    Intimidation and fear is no excuse for resorting to that kind of name-calling and slur-throwing.

    Perez is a tool and his 15 minutes are ticking fast. He has repeatedly used his voice to bring down members of the gay community and its becoome increasingly evident that he is a bitter, lonely individual.

    I would love to see Perez's reaction if Carrie Prejean had used that kind of language in her response to him at the Miss USA contest.
