Because irony doesn’t care where you stick your penis, Perez Hilton has officially pissed off the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) who aren’t pleased by his decision to call Will.I.am a “fucking faggot” during an altercation Sunday night. Via TMZ:
“We have reached out to Hilton and asked him to apologize for promoting this anti-gay slur, and we would ask media outlets to avoid repetition of the slur in their coverage of this story.
For someone in our own community to use it to attack another person by saying that it is, quote, ‘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 anti-gay attitudes.”
Instead of being an adult and realizing he used a poor choice of words, Perez decided to shit on the gay community by throwing a hissy fit and firing off his own dramatic statement:
“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.”
That’s some incredible logic. I’ll remember that the next time I intellectualize a situation by calling an African-American a “n-gger.” Hey, I didn’t use violence. Now gimme a medal.
