This absolutely astonishes me; not for the fact that it happened (some Gays tend to be emotional and volatile), but due to the sheer hypocrisy involved:
TORONTO – Police have charged the tour manager of the Black Eyed Peas with assault after he allegedly punched celebrity blogger Perez Hilton outside a Toronto nightclub. Hilton said he got into an argument with band members Fergie and will.i.am at the Cobra nightclub early Monday morning and was punched outside by Polo Molina, the band’s tour manager. They were at the club following a Sunday night video awards show.
Molina turned himself in and has been charged with assaulting Hilton, Toronto Police Constable Tony Vella said. Molina is due in court Aug. 5.
Okay, so far so good. You punch somebody, that’s assault. You should be charged. But wait; there’s more!
Hilton, whose real name is Mario Lavandeira, complained about the incident on the microblogging site Twitter. He tweeted at 4 a.m.: “I am bleeding. Please, I need to file a police report. No joke.”
Hilton, who is openly gay, said in interview with The Associated Press that he called will.i.am a “faggot,” a gay slur, inside the club after the musician told the blogger not to write about his band on his Web site.
“He was like ‘You need to respect me.’ He was in my face. He was obviously trying to intimidate me and scare me,” Hilton said. “I was like ‘I don’t need to respect you. I don’t respect you and I did say this, and I knew that it would be the worst thing I could possibly say to him because he was acting the way he was. I said ‘You know what, I don’t respect you and you’re gay and stop being such a faggot.'”
Okay, Full Stop here. Perez Hilton admits — in his own words, that he used a gay slur with will.i.am. They had an argument, and Hilton called him a gay slur.
Will.i.am said in a video posting on dip.dive.com that he came to Hilton with respect and was called a “faggot.”
And will.i.am confirms this. Is will.i.am gay? Who cares — Perez Hilton slurred him, and both parties admit it.
Hilton, who was at the club with Lady Gaga, said he then left the club and was punched from behind. The pop stars and the blogger were among celebrities in Toronto for the MuchMusic Video Awards on Sunday night. A spokeswoman for the Black Eyed Peas declined comment.
So, he doesn’t really KNOW who hit him from behind, because he didn’t see the punch, obviously. Plus, earlier reports had Hilton stating will.i.am and his bodyguards hitting him from behind.
So he has no idea who did it, really. But he wants to press charges. Waah, waah, waaaaah!
But . . . Hilton admits he committed a Hate Crime by calling will.i.am a “faggot”. In oh-so-politically correct Canada this is a very serious thing — a Felony, actually.
I’m wondering when Canada will arrest Perez Hilton for a Hate Crime. Not that I’m holding my breath . . . but I think it would be a hoot to see this guy banned from the country for be a Hateful Person, or whatever they call them up there.
All together, sing with me — Waah, Waah, Waaaahhhhhhhhh!!!
