GLAAD Slams Perez Hilton

GLAAD (The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) is not only pissed at Perez Hilton for his anti-gay slur to the Black Eyed Peas' Will.i.am, they want him to issue a public apology for his absurd behavior.

Perez made headlines yesterday when a video surfaced on the internet in which he called Will.i.am a "f**king f*ggot."

GLAAD said, "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."

But instead of apologizes, Perez has issued his own statement about how pissed he is about GLAAD being pissed at him and he wants an apology from them now! Here's what he had to say:

"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."

We're giving this one to GLAAD. Perez shouldn't have used that language against Will.i.am. Perez also claimed he was beaten by Will.i.am, but according to Police, it was Will.i.am's manager who threw the first punch. He already turned himself in and Perez is still on a rampage attacking Will.i.am. Whose side are you on?
