Apologize? Hah. Now Perez Hilton is hopping mad at GLAAD!
The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation was furious about Perez Hilton hurling a gay slur at will.i.am at a party on Sunday night.
There's even a video of him using the offensive term.
Now GLAAD has asked for an apology. But Perez -- a former GLAAD employee -- is firing back.
And you will not believe his 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."
Victimize? VICTIMIZE? Perez is still refusing to acknowledge that using hate speech and name calling is an inappropriate way to defuse a situation. And you're still name calling, referring to Will i. am as a "thug."
Sure, no one should be hit. But you need to clean up your side of the street, Perez.
He needs a self-importance antidote, stat.
Call me crazy but this war of words seems kind of petty considering the truly violent atrocities and devastating and life-threatening human rights problems going on around the world.
What do you think?
