So… Perez Hilton got into a scuffle with the Black Eyed Peas’ Will.I.Am and some of his entourage this past weekend.
Hilton then called Will.I.Am a “fucking faggot” (important note: Perez Hilton is gayer than a handbag full of rainbows). This comment got him in trouble with the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation; one of their spokespeople called Hilton’s words “vulgar anti-gay slurs that feed a climate of hatred and intolerance toward our community” (another important note: not only is Hilton gay, he once worked for GLADD). He has since apologized, but in his apology he noted that he was not apologizing to GLADD.
So now Hilton announced that he is suing Black Eyed Peas’ manager Polo Molina for various bullshit “pain and suffering” issues. He also announced that he’d be donating any proceeds from the suit to the Matthew Shepard Foundation (note: Matthew Shepard was a gay student at the University of Wyoming who was tortured and beaten to death, thus becoming the subject of yet another sanctimonious and preachy HBO movie – The Laramie Project). Only, the Foundation says that they don’t want his money.
How bizarre is this whole story?
