Perez Hilton sues Black Eyed Peas manager

June 25th, 2009 // 104 Comments

The Black Eyed Peas’ manager Polo Molina is being sued for punching Perez Hilton in the face at the 2009 MuchMusic Video Awards Sunday night, according to the AP:

The celebrity blogger, whose real name is Mario Lavandeira, sued the Peas’ road manager in Los Angeles for battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress. He is seeking unspecified damages of more than $25,000.
“Perez Hilton was assaulted by the band’s road manager because he would not agree to stop writing about the Black Eyed Peas on his Web site,” Bryan Freedman, Hilton’s lawyer, said in a statement. “Whether you love Perez or hate him, he is entitled to his freedom of speech without fear of physical violence. This lawsuit will make the statement that violence is never the answer.”

Wait. I thought he got punched in the face for calling a “fucking faggot” not because he’s a shining crusader of first amendment rights. I guess I missed the part where Perez and George Washington battled the King of England for the right to make it look like splooge is falling out of Britney’s dress. Must’ve happen between all the Twitters.

  1. That line about Perez and George Washington is the funniest thing I’ve ever read.

    @35 You are on the wrong site, douchebag. The skinhead sites are a different URL entirely. But I guess you’d have to be literate to know that, huh? BTW, this “Polo” that hit Perez is hispanic as well. But again, I digress.

    so you know every man alive?
    And as a gay woman you know how a man thinks?
    Straight women don’t have a clue so what makes you such an expert?

    You shouldn’t comment on something when you don’t have enough experience on the issue.

    Believe it or not (and your bigoted mind wont) a lot of men don’t like that for a variety of reasons like their religious beliefs.

    Also I’m sure every straight men in your mind wants you but the reality is we like seeing straight women (attractive) playing lesbians than the reality.

    Your hypocrisy is astounding.
    Criticising people who think homo’s a perverted then calling straight men perverts. Also very sexist.

    Me and a friend of mine were talking about Perez the other day. We were both surprised that in spite of him, slamming everyone in the world, on his web site, it seems that everytime he meets up with the same Celebs that he has slammed they kissed his ass. He finally made the wrong comment to an ignorant, black person, who wouldnt put up with his shit and Perez got hit. I only wished that Perez had gotten the shit really beat out of him so that this limp wristed homo would realize that nothing in this world gives you the right to be as rude as are., Howard Stern made a good career out of this kind of behavior but was always respectfull if you showed up on the show. Somewhere down the line the gay community got the impression that they could come out and be as in your face as Perez and get away with it. I hope that they do not label this as a hate crime but rather what it is, an ass who got what he deserves.

    He already filmed a statement saying that he called the guy a fag as it would be the most inflammatory thing he could say. What kind of judge would look at that and decide that the guy that hit him was in the wrong?

  8. Alex

    Its fucking hilarious that this is news.

    I think the only good part of this whole thing is that picture of Perez as he’s getting his grill busted. Priceless.

    And btw, the quote says an unspecified amount ABOVE $25,000. You guys think he’s suing for $25k? Fuck no. He’s probably suing for something in the neighborhood of $200,000-$300,000.

    Perez is a whiney little bitch. He barely had a scratch on im & he totally deserved what he got. not that i like the black eyed peas. but Perez needs to get a life! & what the hell did he call Will. I.Am a faggot when he’s a faggot himself. HE”S SO FAKE! WHY did he twitter the cops?????? if it was a big deal he would have just called the cops! BOOO HOOO BITCH

  10. David

    He can get cited for Disturbing the Peace… it’s a BS charge really but it does make it illegal to say things that have the potential to incite a physical response. Yelling “You’re a fucking faggot” at someone isn’t covered by the 1st amendment.

  11. Can’t fix gay.

  12. dogface

    He’s a creepy whinning nobody and admitted activist two -faced queer that is using every chance he can to be in the news…. and the idiots in the news keep his stories coming.
    It’s a sorry commentary for our country that people like this can make a good living doing the idiocy he is continuously involved in..

  13. Oh no, not again?

    Memo to Polo Molina:

    Fagtards do not understand the subtleties of love taps such as you administered to the Hilton fuckwad in Toronto. As such, you are now authorized to “kick the living shit” out of said scumshit without reservation only next time ensure that the twerp doesn’t arise.

    Kindly remember that removing fagtard Hilton from the bonds of his earthly body will free up valuable resources such as air, water and food that are better used by non-fagtards.

  14. I'm Obama and I approve...

    I want to puinch that faggot in the face too!!

    God Hates Fags!!

  15. You know, I like reading about douchebag celebrities and making fun of them. And generally, the more of a fuckwit they are, the better – even when I know they are just doing it for the publicity.

    But I just have no interest in reading about this stupid, annoying, unnecessarily ugly, faggot anymore. Stop talking about him, and hopefully he’ll slink away and die in a gutter somewhere.

  16. lar

    I think he means legalize faggot marriage.

  17. Pixie

    This guy is such a fucking douchebag… He bitches about everything and the minute someone talks about him or says something about him he goes ballistic… I hate ppl who can dish it out but not take it… Fuck Perez Hilton…

  18. PixieRose

    36 He’s Cuban

  19. Christina

    The best therapy for all of us would be to see his site fail. If everyone stops visiting his site, it won’t take long for his advertisers to catch wind.

  20. graham

    You’re entitled to freedom of speech unless it’s considered hate speech and might insight another person to violence. Which it did. I hope they throw out his case.

  21. .

    Just so you guys know hes donating any money he makes from this case to the Matthew Shepard Foundation.

  22. Marketta

    Imagine looking down and seeing that looking up at you with your dick in its mouth.

  23. Sydney

    Seriously, can someone just teach this guy a lesson and beat the shit out of him? And no fucking cuts, I mean GASHES TO THE HEAD, STABBING WOUNDS, DEATH… I don’t want to kill him personally, but it would be great to see another person kill him.
    He’s not for gay marriage, because he takes us a step back. He’s an idiot.

  24. hahaha

    LOL @15!!!!!!!!!!

  25. squeehunter

    “Whether you love Perez or hate him, he is entitled to his freedom of speech without fear of physical violence.”

    Isn’t the fear of physical violence how society keeps people from saying stupid things in person, unlike on the internet where they can’t get hurt and yet say anything they want? He should have stayed in the safety of the internet!

  26. Prof

    @54 I agree with you for the most part, but the black guy did nothing “ignorant”, & I’ve heard him speak on certain issues he’s definitely “NOT” uneducated or uniformed. All Will I Am told Perez was to keep their band’s name out his mouth (in other words stop writing shit about the band), and that’s AFTER Perez had a heated argument with the female singer of the group. Perez’s response was calling Will a faggot and his music sucks. Then Perez got punched in the eye by someone “other” then the scary urban black guy that makes guys like Perez crap their pants.

    I’m all for freedom of speech and not kicking someone’s ass just because you don’t agree, however their has to be some accountability from both parties. For some reason many people feel that they should be able to say the rudest, snarky, insulting things to someone, and the other party should just shrug it off with a smile. That’s not freedom of speech that just you trying to get away with being a dick. If Perez told him it’s my opinion and right to “write” whatever I feel on my blog, I’m sorry but that’s how I feel… goodnight! He wouldn’t have been blowing snot bubbles into his webcam. Even GLAAD wants him to be more accountable for his actions.

  27. byefromvenice

    I ignore him since the miss world thing, and since then I ignore faggots too
    Both don’t deserve the attention they get, and both are annoying

  28. Ryan the Canadian

    That face needed to be punched. In Canada, we award medals for deservedly punching someone this homely lookin’. We freeze 7 months of the year so our tolerance for douche is low.

  29. Aerialgreen

    Thank for the publicity for the Black Eye Peas! God know with their current album they DO need the PR boost.

    As for Pigez, well, he is just a self-hating nobody who would be otherwise been forgotten years ago if it wasn’t for his equally pathetic enablers.

    Perez- “So I guess I did deserved to be hit?”
    Everyone else – YES YOU DID!


    ya know what. you call someone a faggot you get punched in the face, whether you’re gay or not.

  31. mark

    ya know what. you call someone a faggot you get punched in the face, whether you’re gay or not.

  32. katie

    Emotional distress? What do you think he does everyday to people on his website.

  33. Jonny

    Ok. But if he us hated this much … why do you give him all this press? The news outlets should just boycott perez … and then is whole attention whore persona will have no where to go.

  34. James

    So in the unlikely event that douche actually wins is there an address where we can all send Polo some money to help pay it off and say thanks?

  35. Evil

    Call someone a fucking faggot and you’re lucky if you just get punched in the face.

  36. Scott

    Time was, you said something stupid, you deserved to get punched. The guy is a talentless hack with an agenda. I’d say screw him but he would like that too much.

  37. Truth Doctor

    Fucking faggot. Go to hell Perez.

  38. he

    he is just a douchebag giving a bad reputation. he cant make his own income so why not just sue for it.
    he says he doesn’t care about haters, but i don’t think anyone genuinely likes him that much. even his family probably think of him as a second favourite.

    plus he is ugly and has shit hair.

  39. Galtacticus

    Just because he has the shape of a punchball doesn’t mean you can hit him with your fist ofcourse.He shouldn’t have called names but to answer that with physical violence is more wrong.It’s about 60/40.

  40. Darth

    How about verbal violence? Is their law for?

  41. Rhialto

    I don’t consider calling somebody ‘faggot’ as verbal violence.It’s not a threat.

  42. Gando

    Nice shirt,at least he stands up for something.

  43. Nero should fight him with his keyboard.We like to be entertained as well.

  44. captain america

    having sex with another FAGGOT is a BIG curse already!!

  45. Lola

    I think that if the forefathers would’ve thought that the bill of rights would be (ab)used in order to defend trash-talking they’d punch Perez in the face as well. Don’t get me wrong, i’m not for violence, but the man is as bitter as drugs and just plain mean. He should think twice before, you know… touching the keyboard…

  46. Donna

    I’d punch him! I get so tired of hearing about this dude/dudette. I guess he has never heard about Kharma. And I am sure he has not heard the phrase,
    ” What goes around comes around” You get back what you give out. I hope he learns this before someone kills the poor bastard for getting in their face.

  47. jesus fucking christ what a faggot.

  48. Tanyaonya

    Perez needs to be more humble!
    Fashionistas! check out JIMASTYLE.COM

  49. Confucius
