The Great Perez Hilton/Will.i.am Showdown.

(This is the very important post I was working on when my blog conked out yesterday. Enjoy!)





Here's a description in text if you don't have the patience to watch all that video. Before you side with Will.i.am — which you might feel like doing just because he's way less annoying and long-winded Hilton — skip forward to the last 2 minutes of Hilton's video

Perez Hilton is one ugly dude. I thought gay men were supposed to be stylish and good looking.

Jim said...

Here's the deal:

If you throw "fighting words" at another man and you wind you wind up getting punched in the face for it, then you have no right to complain.

Even by Hilton's own admission, WIA made a reasonable request to lay off his band a little bit. Hilton's response was to go hyperbolic and start throwing epithets and disrespect. Good thing he didn't try that anywhere around here, the object of his verbal abuse wouldn't have stopped after only popping him in the head a couple of times.

This is a guy who spends his life drawing penises on people's face. Quite frankly, what's more surprising is that this hasn't happened more often.

I don't care about the details. Perez Hilton is a pussy.

Now YouTube is down! The curse of Althouse continues!

Patrick said...

John is right, Perez is very ugly. No wonder he is so insecure. Also, for that reason alone he should be punched.

I think he deserved to be punched even aside from ugliness and I think he should grow a pair. Oops.

Dust Bunny Queen said...

What a "Drama Queen". A classic.

lyssalovelyredhead said...

Wow, I don't think that I've ever read an article with so many names of people I despise in one place.

Ann Althouse said...

Perez isn't ugly. It's his incredibly annoying manner that makes you think he is.

RebeccaH said...

The internet is both a blessing and a curse. If it weren't for the internet, I wouldn't have a clue that such creatures as Perez Hilton and Will.I.Am exist. Nor would I care.

On second thought... I don't care.

Larry J said...

Am I alone in wishing they'd fight to the death and both lose?

Cedarford said...

Agree with Jim. Hilton seems to be publicity mad and out to see just how far a line he can cross with his ill-will against people that have done nothing to deserve his getting in their face.

Cruising for a beating, and perhaps to get some fat out-of-court settlements against celebrities in the manner of thug paparrazi that work to provoke celebrities just minding their own business in public.

IMO, he should be very conscious that a punch in the face is actually "getting off light". He may well face a serious beating from one of the many private gay people he has involuntarily Outed, or their friends, if he keeps it up.

Meade said...

A black-eyed pea gave a black eye to guy who's name isn't the name he says is his legal name? Which eye is inapparently blackened? I don't see any black eyes. Or peas.

BJK said...

karma.

If only this had happened before the Miss USA pageant....maybe half of the people reading the story would have known who he was.

DKWalser said...

Re: The concept of "fighting words". Does the law still recognize the concept that some things cannot be said without the expectation that a reasonable man would punch you in the face? If not, it should. The world would be a much politer place if it were possible to exact retribution (without fear of legal repercussions) with a good slap or punch to the face when someone crosses the line.

Chris said...

I say let the police sort it out. They tend to do a decent job getting to the bottom of these sorts of things.

mariner said...

I side with Will.i.am, simply because Perez Hilton is such an asshole.

bagoh20 said...

After the advent of P.H., from now on being famous should be an insult for which you apologize.

Jennifer said...

I'm still cracking up over perez's whiny tweets begging for the police.

I think will.i.am's manager has already been charged with assault over this. Stupid.

Jim said...

Jennifer -

His excuse for tweeting for help was so utterly ludicrous as to beggar belief. He had a phone. He could have called. It was another desperate plea for attention that deserves another punch in the face.

Freeman Hunt said...

Why is the same guy who freaked over Miss California calling people "fag," "faggot," and "gay?"

Jennifer said...

Jim - To be fair, I think he had already called the police and was whining via twitter while waiting.

Freeman - I never get that. Frankly, I don't get why anybody thinks calling someone gay is an insult. But, I really don't get it when gay people do it.

Zachary Paul Sire said...

1. Violence is never the answer, but sometimes a good old fashioned bitch slap is inevitable, and much deserved.

2. If you've seen the video of the fight, you know that Perez screamed "I don't respect you" to Will.i.am, which he doesn't mention in his video, of course.

3. If someone yelled faggot at me, I'd be inclined to punch them in the face, so he should have been prepared to get smacked. Who shouts insults at someone and can actually act surprised for being attacked back?

4. How would Perez defend himself had he called Will.i.am a ni$$er?

Ugg, I could go on. But suffice it to say, Perez is the most juvenile, sad human being I've ever met (and yes, met him multiple times and he's just as ridiculous in person). It might sound like too much, but he really is one of the worst contributors to American culture in history.

Stephanie said...

Perez Hilton is so 2000 and late...

Boom Boom Pow!

You would think that Perez would believe that calling them breeders would be the worst thing he could think of.

junyo said...

Am I alone in wishing they'd fight to the death and both lose?

No.

Two talentless hacks.

jr565 said...

Yes, violence doesn't solve anything. Two wrongs don't make a right. You shouldn't solve problems with your fists etc etc etc.
But if anyone deserved to be bitch slapped its that douchebag.He's a classic bully who uses megaphone to berate others in an extremely vicious manner. Does anyone cry when the bully gets taken down a peg?

And its his own fault. He stepped up and threw fighting words to sosomeone who was in his face. is he so oblivious to the street fighting etiquette that he didn't expect such a reaction? Right or wrong, thats what happens when you dis someone who is in your face.

john said...

I can't believe this poser is trying to steal Chris Crocker's stichk.

john said...

Leave Perez Hilton alone!

john said...

Poseur?

PatCA said...

I think Carrie Prejean should take him out for a cocktail and a dish.

Republican said...

Carrie Prejean would have made sure he got more than a black eye.

Jennifer said...

Ok, I took your advice and watched the last two minutes. He's lying.

If you watch the actual video, when will.i.am says why are you disrespecting me? Perez didn't say I'm not disrespecting you. He said I don't respect you! Then, he did *not* go on to say he loved what will.i.am did the Pussycat Dolls or anything of the sort. He went on to say you're not a f**king entertainer, you're a f**king f*gg*t.

pbuxton said...

I can't believe anyone is giving PH the benefit of any doubt. Will.I.Am (did I get the caps right?) may support Snobama, but he's got talent out the wazoo. (No, not a fan of the BEPs, but I can recognize talent even in a genre I don't follow.) PH is a spoilt, sniveling, outing, whining, lying child.

Dustin Lance Black (Milk) gets an Oscar and PH celebrates by splashing his ex's sex photos all over the net? Hm, why do all the gay men I know hate Perez Hilton with the fury of a thousand suns?

Even more interesting: If Will.I.Am had called PH a fag, he'd be up on hate speech charges. But Will.I.Am is supposed to smile and take it when PH does it to him? Inherently unfair.

Fred4Pres said...

Some events restore my faith in humanity. Perez Hilton getting punched in the face is one of them.

Jim said...

Fred -

My faith won't be restored until it starts happening on a daily basis.

Daryl said...

I just watched Will.I.Am's video.

Perez is right--what a fucking faggot. WIA sounds like self-hating closeted gay homosexual.

D-Day said...

Perez Hilton claiming that violence is never the answer just goes to show that violence absolutely is the answer.

Ok, ok, not this time. But sometimes.

Pogo said...

Perez is the real-life equivalent of an internet troll.

In real life, trollish behavior invites violence.

It's basic physics:
Second Law of Asshole Thermodynamics
"It is impossible to avoid the transfer of a punch from a cooler body to an asshole."

Scott M said...

Apparently, according to that video, Perez Hilton thinks that he's due some sort of special treatment because he's a "human being".

I wonder what his opinion on abortion is?

Frodo Potter said...

If Carrie Prejean and Will.I.Am really wanted to do physical violence to Perez Hilton, they should start dating--and watch his head explode.

TMink said...

Freeman asked: "Why is the same guy who freaked over Miss California calling people "fag," "faggot," and "gay?""

Because he is self hating. DTL does the same thing, and we have seen how homophobic he is.

Maybe the self hating gay guys have not worked through the child sexual abuse they suffered, maybe down deep they know that they should be celibate.

Who knows, but that is one of the most annoying dudes alive.

in light of the fact that Perez will do anything to garner attention for himself, I think it's pretty obvious who is the more trustworthy party i this little squabble
