Celebrity gossip queen Perez Hilton says he is “saddened” that the nation’s leading gay rights group has publicly chastised him for using an antigay slur to admonish Black Eyed Peas frontman will.i.am, after the rapper allegedly slugged the blogger after the MuchMusic Awards in Toronto over the weekend.
On Monday, The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation blasted a seething Perez — who is openly gay — for referring to Will as that other “F-word” in an vlog uploaded after Sunday’s brawl.
In a statement to E! News, Hilton says: “I am saddened GLAAD chose to victimize me further by criticizing me for how I nonviolently 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.”
