I wasn’t going to post about the Perez Hilton feud with will.i.am because I just don’t like Perez – especially after his video over Carrie Prejean. Girl can’t have an opinion that differs from you so you call her all those names? Well now name calling is coming back to him because he decided to use anti-gay slurs against the Black Eyed Peas singer. During his video tirade in which he recounted the experience of being beaten while tweeting – and who the hell tweets while getting hit anyway? – he came out with this statement:
“I don’t need to respect you, and you’re a f-g. You’re gay, and stop being such a f—-t!”
Will.I.Am Came back with this comment:
“This dude twists it and says that I assaulted him, when I was the one that came to him with respect and he was the one who called me a [f—–t] outside the club.”
Now GLAAD has stepped in and has asked Perez to issue an apology for spewing such hatred. they have also said no one deserves to get hit, but they seem much more concerned about that words that were thrown around by Hilton.
“These are vulgar antigay slurs that feed a climate of hatred and intolerance toward our community,” said Rashad Robinson, senior director of Media Programs at GLAAD. “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.
“It 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.”
