Perez Hilton apologizes for gay slur

Perez Hilton at the MMVAsPerez Hilton has released a statement on his website in which he apologizes for the gay slur he used early Monday morning after the MMVAs: ” The other night in Toronto, after feeling physically threatened by a verbally abusive Will.I.Am of the Black Eyed Peas, I chose the most hurtful word I know to hurl at him. I was in an out-of-the ordinary situaton and used a word that I would not utter under normal circumstances. My intention – however misguided it may have been – was to stand up for myself and tell this belligerent man that I had enough of his badgering and was not going to continue to let him berate and intimidate me. I wanted to hurt him with the word I chose, not anyone else. Unfortunately, the one who got hurt was me and, subsequently, a lot of other people. I wish none of it had happened. I can’t take it back. I did what I thought was best at the moment to stand up for myself in a non-violent yet still assertive way. Clearly, I am not homophobic. Also, I am not nor have I ever claimed to be a spokesperson for the gay community. I am just speaking for myself, a gay man.”

    Usually when a gay man calls another man straight or gay a faggot then thats how they hit on them not make fun of them. Im not gay or anything but I think thats how it works. I have a gay cousin and thats what he told me.

    Oh, kinda like how it’s okay for black people to call others the “N” word…but if a white person does it they are prejudice, right? Excuses, excuses.

    Wow. Its about time. He seriously had it coming to him. He calls peoples kids ugly for crying out loud. Actually PEREZ, sometimes, VIOLENCE IS THE ANSWER because your words hurt more than a PUNCH IN THE FACE. LOSER!!!

    As someone who is gay, I think calling someone that, whether you are gay or not, or the person you are calling it is gay or not; is absolutely not a cool thing to say at all. It should not be used, ever.

    Not usually someone who believes in violence to solve problems but in the case of this moron I’d happily make an exception.

    Glad someone kicked this fee-fee’s butt. What a fruity patooty.

    He should get beat down more often. He has no class. I don’t know why anyone would listen to this freak show. Good for the BEP manager to punch him. The T.O. police should give him a medal, not charge him.

    In England, fag is slang for cigarette…Perez Hilton is the biggest cigarette I’ve ever seen!

    True enough! lol

    My daughter has a part-time retail job and her boss is gay. When he’s creating personal drama, she always tells him to stop being such a f**. He calls the male employees (straight guys) the same when they whine about having to clean after their shift. I personally don’t think the word itself represents sexual orientation as much as it does a weak or needy person or someone behaving foolishly.
