Celebrity blogger, Perez Hilton, eventually apologized to Black Eyed Peas singer Will.I.AM for slinging anti-gay slurs at the singer in Canada. The blogger was caught on tape after his rant video went viral. Perez Hilton is suing the Black Eyed Peas' manager for the alleged assault.
Perez published a statement on his blog but Hilton is still suffering from "foot in mouth disease". Hilton confessed to the gay magazine "The Advocate" that he regretted calling Will.I.Am a gay slur because he really wanted to use racist language and call Will a ni@@er aka "the n word." This is really classy Perez way to go. Can you believe this ish? Sorry to break it to you Mario aka Perez but although you say that "violence is never the answer" you can't expect not to get your but kicked if you step to someone and call them a "n@gga" to their face. Perez Hilton was lucky that he was able to walk away from the incident for just thinking he was going to say these vicious words.
Hilton, apparently not content to be the world's leading purveyor of dirty celebrity doodles, is quixotically positioning himself as some sort of gay rights leader. Though, he's going about it all the wrong ways.
In the new profile by Boston-based gaypert Benoit Denizet-Lewis, the vicious and rotund self-ascribed Queen of All Media practically pleads with his interviewer to please accept him as a Righteous Gay. The Advocate story was written and filed before The Incident, but Denizet-Lewis has spoken to Hilton since and added his quotes to the online version of the article. Hilton, never the intellectual high jumper, buried himself even deeper:
But Perez tells me that, in the heat of the moment that night, he almost chose to use a different word. "I thought about calling him the n word," he says over the phone a week after the incident, "but I thought the f word was even worse. I was so filled with hate at that moment because I was hated on so much, and I reacted in the worst way possible. Then I went on to make a bunch of other mistakes. I shouldn't have made the video. I shouldn't have released so many statements. But what's come out of all of this is that I've learned so much about myself, and I'm in a much better place. I'm actually thankful that it happened. As cheesy as it may sound, I had almost a spiritual moment when I just let all of the anger and worry go and am now filled with peace, happiness, and wisdom.
Aw. Isn't that... vaguely horrifying. In seeking the forgiveness of the gay community (or not forgiveness, I don't think Hilton is concerned with forgiveness, but some weird meta thing somewhere between forgiveness and fear), Hilton decides to have us congratulate him for not saying the racist thing he was thinking. Terrific. [source]
