    oh boy here we go again… should miss ca go on a campaign and quote ppl as well just to prove what u feel is right….

  2. 2

    This is so tacky of you! Don't smear his legacy by misusing this quote! You know Dr. King would NOT support gay marriage not even your precious Messiah Obama does shit for brains. You're beyond crude!

  3. 3


  4. 4

    Dude, that's wrong. You filed Martin Luther King Jr under GAY GAY GAY?

  5. 5

    That's so true, so STFU up you whiny little fag git about how your being denied you damn rights, follow his lead, he got civil rights for his people thru the vote of the people and not by activists judges!

  6. 6

    The fight for racial equality is not tantamount to gay rights. It ISNT the same thing.

  7. 7

    DOWN W/ miss california!!!!!! hate her….

  8. 8

    It reminds me of another quote by Martin Luther King, Jr. "Injustice ANYWHERE is injustice EVERYWHERE." I was so dissapointed by Ms. California.

  9. 9

    Get over it Perez, gay marriage will never be accepted in every state! Thank God!

  10. 10

    ugggh. this gay rant looks like its going to go on longer than when the campaigning ended and he found out Obama wasnt for same sex marriage, and the one when prop 8 passed. Maybe,Perez, you should make a whole different outlet for your "gay activism." Otherwise known as "agree with Perez or you're a C word." campaign. This is a GOSSIP website and while I understand the current event factor, you're not very intelligent in your delivery. Stick to gossip on here at least. thats what we're here for. I can stand a little sprinkle here an again but you are becoming self-righteous and tiring. it isnt at all becoming.

  11. 11

    Martin Luther King was a Republican Perez. And so I am. Not to mention the fact that I dont believe the government should be marrying ANYONE straight or gay.. Enough of your Republican bashing. I love your site and have been a LOYAL fan for years. Why dont YOU start being tolerant and practicing what you preach. Love everyone!

  12. 12

    Fuck you Perez. How dare you use Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s quote. Your only doing this in light of the controversy involving you and Miss California, using an honorable man such as Martin Luther King's quote does NOT make you honorable also. AND I don't think he was referring to assholes like you who attack anyone who disagrees with your close mind. It goes both ways you know. Your close minded and not seeing anyone elses opinion other than your own. Your a sad excuse for a human being.!!!!!!!!

  13. 13

    Ugh. Do not smear his legacy!

  14. 14

    what about a pro gay quote made up from hitler it is his birthday today

  15. 15


  16. 16

    perez, please ignore the comments. that was a relevant quote

  17. 17

    Re: Who wants ta party? – I know, right? perez is such a douchebag! Hey asshole change how you file this post! It shouldn't be under "gay, gay, gay" you disrespectful prick!

  18. 18

    Its a shame people have forgotten his words of wisdom!

  19. 19

    When gay people are enslaved, and bought/sold like produce for years, THEN you can quote King.
    Until then, stop comparing racial equality to gay rights.

  20. 20

    Re: cockface – HAHAHHAAHHA

  21. 21

    Keep waving that percious rainbow flag of yours Mario!I'm telling ya you have to put your money where your gigantic mouth is and mount a national campagin for the next mid term election.I mean,what could possibly go wrong.Everybody feels the same as you,right?

  22. 22

    its not right to use the great Martin Luther King, Jr's quote out of context..he is probably turning in his grave right. one can't compare gay marriage to racial inequality! I totally support prop 8 but Perez u are doing nothing but damage to this cause. Today all over the world your over reaction received a negative reaction. At the end of the day it was just a pageant and she is just a girl entitled to her opinion like everyone else. Her answer was by no means a youtube moment but your response is! For your information im a lesbian and by the way you let us down man!! think about it………….

  23. 23


  24. 24

    I know you are not trying to compare yourself to Martin Luther King jr.
    You have some balls dude.
    You are just asking to get jacked up by someone.
    You are a borderline pedophile posting posts under "yummy yummy screw" about Zac Effron everyday.
    I will bet he has a restraining order out on you.
    Don't ever do this again.

  25. 25

    MLK's message was POSITIVE–even with haters all around. Your constant message is NEGATIVE–it's "let's slam and hate on everyone for not being perfect or looking fab every single second of the long fuckin day."

  26. 26


  27. 27

    Um I believe Perez Hilton is utilizing the civil rights movement as a way to illuminate the struggles gay people face when striving for equality under the law! Let's not be angry people…I'm sure Perez does respect Dr. King

  28. 28

    Re: Obama Hearts TOTUS – Yeah!!!! I'm right there with ya! CHANGE THE FUCKING "FILED UNDER" LABEL PEREZ! YOU SUCK!

  29. 29

    How Dare You Smear Martin Luther King Jr.'s Legacy by misusing his speech!!!!! Shame On You!!!!

  30. 30

    Re: UrMajestyMsG – I know what a shitty thing to do! He's not respecting Dr. King but sure feels comfortable using his quote! Perez is an ass!

  31. 31

    OK now I get why everyone hates Perez Hilton!

  32. 32

    Thank you for trying to educate people. Go Perez!

    I am so glad I live in Norway, a country where our government let people chose what kind of life they want to live. Stop the hate, and start caring about the people around you boys & girls :)


  33. 33

    OH JEEZ another rant and rave. Perez just because your gay doesnt mean we are all gay, Love the gays and support gay marriage. Stop trying to change everybody's views. Im sure you have thoughts and views of your own which is fine, you have a right to think and feel what you want but please stop trying to stick "Gay rights, Gay Justice and Gay Marriage" in our faces..Some of our opinion's on gay marriage will never change. Sorry..

  34. 34

    Yes the Inspiration is fine but that other needs to go! He was a GREAT man! Something you know little about!

  35. 35

    Shut up, Mario.

  36. 36

    " I had a dream…. and it wasn't about two dudes cornholing!"

  37. sushi says – reply to this


    Unfortunately for you, a large number of African American's do not support gay marriage. How ironic, huh?

  38. 38

    Sorry to say he wasn't talking about gay people when he said that.

  39. 39

    Beautiful quote Mario, but Dr. MLK Jr was not referring to gay marriage at all.
    P.S. The "gay, gay, gay" label is really disrespectful!

  40. 40


    Martin Luther King, Jr., had a dream pertaining to civil rights. Gay “marriage” is not a civil right.

    “Gay marriage is simply not a 'civil rights' issue. It is not a struggle for freedom. It is a struggle of already free people for complete social acceptance and the sense of normalcy that follows thereof–a struggle for the eradication of the homosexual stigma.”
    “The civil rights movement argued that it was precisely the utter innocuousness of racial difference that made segregation an injustice. Racism was evil because it projected a profound difference where there was none — white supremacy, black inferiority — for the sole purpose of exploiting blacks. But there is a profound difference between homosexuality and heterosexuality. In the former, sexual and romantic desire is focused on the same sex, in the latter on the opposite sex. Natural procreation is possible only for heterosexuals, a fact of nature that obligates their sexuality to no less a responsibility than the perpetuation of the species. Unlike racial difference, these two sexual orientations are profoundly–not innocuously–different. Racism projects a false difference in order to exploit. Homophobia is a reactive prejudice against a true and firm difference that already exists.”

  41. 41

    You're comparing MLK Jr's lead in fighting for civili rights amongst the black community to Fags?!!??

    What's the matter with you lately. Are you engaged and waiting to legally be married? Is it against Gay Religion to have sex before marriage? Or are you not allowed to be Gay pregnant until married? Marriage is pointless for the Gay community. I think if there was a puddle to splash in, the Gay's would try to make a tsunami out of it.

    Marriage is a religious sacrament, religions for the most part don't recognize being gay as a marital option. It's wrong for the church to make you straight so stop trying to make the church Gay.

  42. 42

    What Martin Luther King said was an entirely different agenda altogether.
    Your shit is just pissing people off rather than feeling any sympathy for
    you. It's flamboyant in your faces gay people like you that give them a bad name. Tough shit Perez you got what you deserved & just for your info Martin Luther King wouldn't definitely not have supported homosexuality.
    Quit ramming your beliefs down peoples throats, nobody gives a fuck for them!!

  43. 43

    Funny, I don't think by "tireless exertions" he meant posting about people you hate on a website 24/7.

  44. 44

    Perez, are you out of your mind? You're putting the venerable name and image of Martin Luther King under " gay gay gay"???
    You're insulting every single person of color, trust me.

  45. 45


  46. 46

    Re: Big Black Dick – Priceless!

  47. 47

    All you haters STFU!

    Clearly this way to powerful of a quote to be used around all you immature twats!

  48. 48

    Re: Perez got f*cking owned at Miss USA 200

    Why don't you lie on your back bitch, thats what your only talent is.

  49. 49

    You bitches are losing context of what its all about!

    The hate needs to end! A specific group of people are clearly being maliciously targeted and are exercising there right to get up and fight. And all anyone can do is sit around and be a twat about it!

    You know you're in America when shit like this is happening.

  50. 50

    Re: stophating09 – Why don't you STFU and let others exercise their right to free speech you stupid fuckhead! You don't find a problem with perez filing this under "gay, gay, gay" Real nice fucktard you're the only twat here! IDIOT!

  51. 51

    You know it wasn't that long ago when interracial marriages were illegal also. It is ignorant not to be able to see the correlation between the two.

  52. 52

    Re: stophating09 – Are you serious jackass with your "stop the hate shit" you stupid fucking hypocrite! YEAH YOU'RE TOTALLY NOT HATING ON #49, 50, 51 OR 53! CALLING PEOPLE TWATS, DISRESPECTING WOMEN STFU YOU IGNORANT RAMBLING BUCKET OF SHIT!

  53. 53


  54. 54

    Human progress and justice–are you pretending you promote that ? Just wondering. You may want to ask your targeted victims if they feel you stand for that or are you posting that for fun?

  55. 55

    wake up HOMO and give it a rest. MLK has nothing to do with your frustration over what happened last night.

  56. 56

    It's not only gay people that are persecuted, judged, made fun of–you do that to everyone even your own.

  57. 57

    Re: stophating09 – how about You stop hating, no? ok

  58. 58

    Re: Big Black Dick – OMG that is so funny…and so true. Im sure that was not one of his dreams..

  59. 59

    Indeed. And in Perez's case, that means embarrassing and humiliating innocent individuals and ruining their lives just because they exercised their God-given right to state their own opinion.

  60. 60

    Wow you just continue to amaze me with your ignorance Perez. Equating your gay oppression with that experienced by racisim and enslavement. You HAVE NO CLUE! HOW DARE YOU! You have sunk to your lowest level to use Dr. King this way. You suck.

  61. 61

    Re: stophating09 – SO GET THE FUCK out of AMERICA if your gonna complain about it. I hear Afghanistan is a nice place to live..

  62. 62

    Are you pretending you think this way. Take a hard look at what you do and how people feel about what you say. You're not prejudice, you dice up anyone and everyone–that I'll give you. Do you know the hurt you dish up? Can you seriously try to pretend that you feel something when reading this quote. I'll say again, go back and look and what you put out there. Really!

  63. 63

    Re: stophating09 – Calling people names like twat is hating don't ya know? How do you expect others to stop when you are full of hate?

  64. 64

    Somehow I don't think Dr. King was referring to one man fucking another up the ass,when he made those great speeches…

  65. 65

    Thanks be to God that gay marriages will never be accepted throughout America. Give gays an inch and they would take a mile..

  66. 66

    Hypocrisy means being less critical of oneself than of others. You need to mark up a picture of yourself for everyone to laugh at. You need a dunce cap with the word hypocrite on your head. You need two mouths and be speaking out of both of them at once. You need a halo around your head as you bash some young girl with your words. Now THAT would be funny AND appropriate.

  67. Stepy says – reply to this


    MLK wouldnt have called anyone a "dumb bitch" either. Dont even try to put yourself in the same category!! You are just as much as a hate monger as anyone you rail against!!

    You are just as intolerant as you say Miss Cali was. You say the states should decide, but when Californians DID decide against Prop 8, you screamed and yelled and said there must have been a mistake.

    While I agree that gays deserve equal rights, I do think that its up to the states, and the people in those states, to decide. If they are pro, great, if not, ok. All this hate speech you spew needs to stop!

  68. 68

    Actually the people that you spew hate on need a website like that and Miss California should contribute. Is that fair? Is it?

  69. 69

    If you knew anything about MLK then you'd know he was more likely to be against gay marriage and hardly for it. MLK, Jr. was a good man.

    You, Perez, are an idiot. And so is your favorite/liking what's trendy president Obama.

  70. Bree says – reply to this


    Look, I'm sorry Ms Cali popped your bubble. I agree with equal rights for all, but what she said was her opinion. Why is she losing her crown because of it? That is wrong.

    If you're trying to represent the gay community, you're doing a horrible job at it.

  71. 71

    Here are some of the comments people have made about you Perez, hope you are proud of yourself. Your career is OVER!

    "I can't believe this clown would use this poor girls personal opinion to further his agenda and cause her to lose. People of his ilk should be ran out of town on a rail."

    "Perez Hilton is a leech of society, his only contribution to the world is gossiping about celebrtities. What qualifies him to be a judge?? That was an unfair question. Perez Hilton then showed what an intolerant ahole he was by calling her the B and C word in an interview after.Just because you're gay doesnt give you the right to call a woman names!"

    "Get ready for lawsuits coming towards Perez Hilton's (AKA "he'va") way for performing discrimination in costing her the crown! Let's see how they like it when the court decision is on the other foot!"

    "It was a question that should not have been ask. Hilton was out of line. Ask yourself this question,"Why is a gay man judging a female beauty pageant"?"

  72. 72

    Re: Big Black Dick – bahahaaa

  73. 73

    Frankly I'm sure Miss California has probably spread less hate and hurt less people in her life than you. Please don't think you're above her for any reason. She doesn't act anything like you. I'd like parents and relatives of your victims to start a blog and then you'll know what kind of pain you deliver and you'll stop preying on innocent vicitms such as Miss California. You need serious therapy. Truly. You need help and someone close to you should help you get it. The fact you make a living off of this should be outlawed.

  74. 74

    name one sacrifice you ever made…..shitstick

  75. 75

    Just like in a court of law, ignorance is not a defense.

  76. 76

    Perez, I don't always agree with what you have to say, but I just wanted to say I love you, and whenever I randomly see you on TV or anything I get happy :)

  77. 77

    Re: stophating09 – twat squared

  78. 78

    Maybe we should give all the homosexuals the island of alcatraz and sence they cant repopulate they will all die off.

  79. 79

    Well, P ~
    I don't really think that gay rights is what Dr. Martin Luther King was speaking about here (even though there are parallels). And I have to agree with the peeps commenting here that it seems wrong to file this quote under gay, Gay, GAY quote.

    And you know what they say there in Hollyweed: "Any publicity is good publicity." And you are deffo getting the publicity!

  80. 80

    Re: Cizzle – GROSSSSS!

  81. 81

    LET IT GO!!!
    you should be tolerant of other people's views like you want them to be tolerant of yours

  82. 29 says – reply to this


    using qutes in reference to slavery and race segregation is shallow, tacky and very much offensive to those who know and appreciate what dr king was trying to achieve. which btw had NOTHING to do with gay marriage! i have ZERO respect for you perez, not that i ever had any to begin with, but you are seriously delusional. you are one pathetic little man. and filing this under GAYGAYGAY?! how dare you!

  83. 83

    Instead of coming pout of the closet maybe you should clean it. Is being a queer worth going to Hell over

  84. 84

    Re: aaabbbccc – well said…..can you believe he published that guys email addy earlier today……hypocritical hateful doggy doer

  85. 85

    MLK wasnt all you think He was. Why do you think those tapes were sealed for fifty years. He got money from Fideil Casrtrel belonged to the communist party had gay parties and almost killed a women he was having an affare with in a motel room. His cause was great and a good one but he was not. After the fifty years are up and the tapes are released then you all will see who he realy was. then maybe they will take away that mlk day they forced on us all.

  86. 86

    haha he was against gay people moron

  87. 87

    I absolutely can't believe you guys. Dr King preached about resisting oppression, fighting for freedom and equality FOR ALL. Yes, his quest was centered around a racial debate, but his hope was to inspire us all. ALL OF HUMANITY, not just one specific group of people in suffering.

    Bravo Perez for going beyond the gossip site stable. You really do take things to new highs and continue to voice a minority who needs to be heard. Keep fighting for us an continue to remain relevant in ALL ISSUES covered by the media. Your twists are what make blogging FUN!


  88. 88

    Re: Cizzle – I'm guessing you're about 12 so you're love for perez I guess is understandable but he's not a leader or worthy of being anyones' idol. Now go on off to bed you go :)

  89. 89

    Wow..another rant from you Perez?? I'm not surprised…
    This is a gossip site and now if we dont agree with you…we never hear the end of it. It's getting very tiring…. :(

  90. 29 says – reply to this


    Re: rightwingguy – don't they teach "rightwingguys" how to spell? it's one thing to make a few typos, but come on man, this is ridiculous. your lack of spelling skills is almost as pathetic as the ignorant lies you've chosen to manifest and believe in that pee sized brain of yours.

  91. 91

    Hey Mario the just called you childish on Bill Oreilly and for once I have to agree with him…..jackass.

  92. 92

    For all of you who are so "outraged" and claim to "know" what MLK would say about comparisons between gay rights and the civil rights movement…Maybe you should read what his wife Coretta Scott King had to say on the subject:
    "Gays and lesbians stood up for civil rights in Montgomery, Selma, in Albany, Ga. and St. Augustine, Fla., and many other campaigns of the Civil Rights Movement," she said. "Many of these courageous men and women were fighting for my freedom at a time when they could find few voices for their own, and I salute their contributions. For too long, our nation has tolerated the insidious form of discrimination against this group of Americans, who have worked as hard as any other group, paid their taxes like everyone else, and yet have been denied equal protection under the law…I believe that freedom and justice cannot be parceled out in pieces to suit political convenience. My husband, Martin Luther King, Jr. said, "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." On another occasion he said, "I have worked too long and hard against segregated public accommodations to end up segregating my moral concern. Justice is indivisible." Like Martin, I don't believe you can stand for freedom for one group of people and deny it to others.

  93. 93

    not nice Perez

  94. 94

    And she also said this:
    Coretta Scott King:

    "Homophobia is like racism and anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry in that it seeks to dehumanize a large group of people, to deny their humanity, their dignity and personhood."

    "We are all tied together in a single garment of destiny…I can never be what I ought to be until you are allowed to be what you ought to be," she said, quoting her husband. "I've always felt that homophobic attitudes and policies were unjust and unworthy of a free society and must be opposed by all Americans who believe in democracy."

  95. 95

    SERIOUSLY PEREZ…Don't use this as a way for gay rights….african americans were treated unfairly as humans, equality is not marriage….marriage is a sacred unity and a religious thing……african americans were beat and were slaved by americans….the freedom of african americans was for them to live freely and be able to live like everyone else and not be forced to be slaves….gay people have the same basic rights as everyone…marriage is not a right…marriage is sacred…dont compare this….it is not fair for the african american people….leave it alone…

    gay people are not treated as slaves and not forced to work in the cotton fields…idiot
