GLAAD Condemns Assault on Perez Hilton, Asks Him to Apologize

GLAAD yesterday issued a statement in response to the altercation between Perez Hilton and Will.i.am manager Polo Molina at Toronto's MuchMusic awards.

Will Said GLAAD Senior Director of Media Programs Rashad Robinson: While not all the facts in this case are known, the violence that appears to have been committed against Perez Hilton is unacceptable and ought to be condemned in the strongest possible terms."

The group has also asked Perez to apologize for language he used during the altercation: "I don't need to respect you and you're a f**. You're gay and stop being such a f***ot."

Wrote GLAAD: "These are vulgar anti-gay slurs that feed a climate of hatred and intolerance toward our community. 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.”

UPDATE: Perez says GLAAD further victimized him.

  1. The "violence ... against Perez Hilton"? What BS. He ran his mouth in someone's face and that someone popped him with their fist. Been happening since the dawn of man I'd guess. Also makes for some great movie scenes - wish he would have gotten those two Mommie Dearest slaps.

  2. As far as I'm concerned, Lavandeira got what he deserved. Even another f using the "f" word so vehemently against another f deserves to get his ass kicked.

  3. If someone called me a faggot I'd punch him in the face, too. (Or at least have one of my straight friends do it!) I hate Perez Hilton and FINALLY someone knocked him out. He should learn to not run his mouth so much!

  4. Hes just jealous because despite being a 'fag' (in PHs eyes anyway) will.i.am has a successful music and acting career and despite being a 'fug meth face' fergie has that hot piece as her husband. Its typical of the bitchy ugly queen mentality.

  5. While I don't condone violence of any kind, there is a little sweetness in this considering Perez was such an asshat over the whole Dustin Lance Black thing. The only people hungrier for fame than Perez Hilton is that douchebag couple Spencer and Heidi.

  6. Why, oh why, are the folks over at GLAAD so incredibly worthless? They really are about as relevant as NOW these days.

    Perez Hilton has a pattern of bigoted name calling and actions...bitch, cunt, faggot, thug...all within the last few weeks...add to that the Dustin Lance Black photos that he published, as well as his daily actions on that website.

    He is just another bully, in a society which seems to exalt the worst possible behavior seeking attention. He gives no respect, he has earned no respect..I would say boycott him if I felt he was remotely relevant...he certainly does not, at this point, deserve our support or attention..

  7. I'm sure there are a multitude of women who consider his spats with females and his ultimately resorting to online videos and screaming "fucking bitch" and "fugly bitch" at them to be as offensive as screaming "faggot". He did it again with Fergie in his most recent videos (that are getting hoots and hollers on sites from liberal leaning to moderate to ultra-conservative) and Fergie ought to pop him, too.

  8. Pity that Mr Molina hadn't just eaten a box of Twinkies. No telling what he might have done.

  9. Gee someone got punched in the face for calling a straight guy a f*ggot. Shocking.

    Perez provoked the entire thing... just to further his own celebrity.

  10. Rovex its funny you bring up the "typical bitchy ugly queen mentality" because thats about half the douche-bags who read this blog.Except they are old.

  11. Doesn't everyone sort of get a free pass for beating the f@#* out of Perez Hilton?

    Posted by: Jeff | Jun 23, 2009 8:39:51 AM


  12. Totally agree with GLAAD on this one—condemn the fighting, ask for an apology on the bizarre use of "faggot" by Perez.

  13. ...and yet Towleroad continues to promote and link to the poisonous and moronic Perez Hilton.

  14. perez needs to keep his mouth shut or else, he will get more fists in his face. what did he want? an ice cream?

    nobody can get away with calling another person a hateful name and not expect to get something back.

    Posted by: David | Jun 23, 2009 8:50:51 AM


  15. When is this idiots 15 minutes going to be over? And why is his hateful spewing considered news and the deserved response?

    I think I'll buy some BEP tracks just as a thank you.

  16. "dehumanize" -- "exploiting" -- two words Perez is very familiar with

  17. to rave against perez hilton makes no sense. no one, no person has a right to lay his/her hands upon another without permission. as someone once said, "your freedom of speech ends when your fist hits my face". as much as many of us dislike perez, there is no excusing violence. if i were to punch everyone in the face that i find annoying, i would be constantly in the hoosegow. i am on perez's side.

  18. I disagree with the blanket rejection of violence by some posters. This is not a gay bashing of some guy walking down the sidewalk. This is a vicious asshole shooting his mouth off, again, and finally being held to account for it. The only downside is that he gets to pretend he's a martyr. Perez is a vicious, bullying, instigating bastard who frankly could have used a shot in the mouth a long time ago. Good for the little prick. The fact that he's gay is irrelevant. He's a shitstain first and foremost.

  19. Good for GLAAD

  20. and mario lavandeira (aka perez) used to be an employee at glaad. so...

  21. 1.) Why is GLAAD mediating a bitchfight between Will i am and Hilton? Have they nothing better to do?
    2.) Why on earth would we care what happens to Hilton? ever!
    3.) Hilton, an out gay man used the f word as an insult...Bring him over and I'll punch him in the beezer once or twice on general principle.
    4.)Hilton is a waste of time and human flesh.

  22. PEREZ HILTON DESERVED WHAT HE GOT ONLY MORE!
    HAD HE DONE WHAT HE DID DOWN SOUTH HE WOULD NOW BE ON LIFE SUPPORT IF HE WAS LUCKY!
    I SAW BOTH SIDES AS WELL AS THE ORIGINAL VIDEO OF HIM FOLLOWING AND CURSING THE PEAS.
    I SERIOUSLY HOPE SOME LOYAL FAN OF THE BAND PUTS A BULLET BETWEEN HILTONS EYES!

  23. I hope all the old perverts that write comments on this website get beaten soon. That's what you wish to Perez, that's what you all should get.
    You are all freaks !!!!

  24. I absolutely love Perez Hilton. He is nice and funny. I enjoy reading his website every day. Thanks Perez for all the nice things you have done for us, keep doing them.
