I'm Sorry

| Filed under: Personally PerezSad Sad

"People make mistakes. I have made many in my life, but this past week I have made more than I can count on one hand.

I am sorry. And I mean it. No one is forcing me to write this. I am not feeling pressured to say this. I am speaking out because I realize that the last few days have been more hurtful to me - and many others - than the repeated blows I suffered to my head in Toronto this past weekend.

I have been filled with incredible sadness and regret.

I am sorry that any good work I have done for promoting equality may be tainted by me reclaiming a hurtful word - that's been personally used against me and the gay community - to hurt someone that was verbally attacking me. It was stupid.

Apologizing for me is not easy. Writing this was not easy. Life is not easy. But everything happens for a reason and I will take away a lot of valuable lessons from this experience.

Violence is never the answer. Never.

Victims should not be mocked.

The "F" word will never be uttered from my lips again. Just as others use the "N" word to insult and hurt - or as part of their everyday speech - I challenge them to remove it from their vocabulary as well.

Hindsight is always 20/20, they say. I should have been the bigger man and walked away from an unfortunate situation. Instead, I chose - in a very misguided way - to stand up for myself and only made things worse by how I - under pressure, anger and extreme emotion - handled the situation.

I am sorry.

I am NOT apologizing to GLAAD. I could care less about them, my former employers.

I am apologizing to the gay community, to anyone who was hurt by my choice of words, and to all the people who have ever emailed me to thank me for all that I have done to fight for gay rights over the last few years.

I have reached out to Isaiah Washington, someone I incorrectly labeled a homophobe in the past, despite his own public statements that he was not.

I will be donating any money collected from my lawsuit against Polo Molina, road manager for the Black Eyed Peas, to the Matthew Shepard Foundation.

And I will continue to speak out for equality and support the great work done by LGBT organizations, such as LAMBDA Legal and HRC.

Sincerely,

Perez"

    we have all been there….your human (some people may find that hard to believe) and we all make mistakes.



  2. 1002

    After looking at some of your photos on Google damn Perez. The camera not only doesn't like you but it doesn't even have the energy to add 10 lbs. And you called Fergie Fugly? and however many others. A horse's anus on even the worst day has better complexion.



  3. 1003

    Well, I see the good and bad in this…Good in that you've realized your wrong, and apologized for it. Thats great! More people should follow your lead! The Bad? It will take some time for you to recover from this. But hurry up will ya? I want to get back to insulting your ass again without feeling shitty for it!! Shithead!! ;)



  4. 1004

    And reaching out to Isaiah Washington? What a lame attempt to try and get some respect back. You are pathetic and washed up. Repeated blows? You suffered a little boo-boo under your eye, even the Toronto police report said a small red mark. Start acting like a 31 year old instead of a 14 year little girl. Your apology is nothing but another one of your campaigns.



  5. 1005

    Sorry Perez,
    You showed what you are. This is the end of Perez Hilton's 15 minutes. Now you can go back to waiting tables or doing whatever it is you did. I visited your website every morning over coffee. I won't be back. Bye



  6. 1006

    Mario; You are experiencing a "process" of growth as a human being. We all are. You are doing so a little more publicly than most but it's the same for us all. We all fuck up. It's how we deal with it that matters.

    Perhaps this incident affords you with a new perspective. You have now seen first hand how very deeply hurtful words can be.

    You have attained some celebrity status, and to me it seems to have been done through mean spiritedness. Perhaps you can choose to make the world a better place now that you understand the terrible hurt that your words may have caused over the years. Brittany, Paris, Aniston, Madonna, none of them surrendered their human feelings and emotions when they became celebrities. Obviously neither have you. Something to think about. eh?

    Look in the mirror Mario. f you don't like what you see looking back, change it.

    In fact, the ONLY person in the whole world that you can change is YOU.

    Best of luck Mario.



  7. 1007

    That was brave, and beautiful. You are amazing and could not have said that more perfectly. I love you even more for donating any funds to the Mathew S. foundation. What a wonderful idea.

    Remember, what doesn't kill you will only make you stronger. You will look back on this someday and realize whatever the lesson that was learned.

    Stay strong, so many people love you for real, P. including me.

    ((cyber-Hugs)) to you



  8. 1008

    It kills me when people say they respect you! What do you people respect? Someone who makes a living making fun of others. Read what I'm saying…. your a b-u-l-l-y! I don't justify violence, but you said what you said to evoke anger. Why are you surprised that you got what you ordered? Call 50 cent the n word then complain when you find a bullet in your a$$. C'mon!

    1010

    right on perez!!!!!, I KNOW IT WAS PROBIBLY REALLY HARD TO SAY UR SORRY IN THIS SITUATION. but u did the right thing.

    good job. and the money from a lawsuit going to the matthew shappard foundation…. couldn't have thought of a better idea myself..

    awsome job perez!



  11. 1011

    "Victims should not be mocked" from a man who spends his life mocking others, many victims (maybe not of violence, but of circumstance) themselves. You mock the way they look, their words, their opinions and their families.

    I truly think this is ironic. Karma's a bitch.



  12. 1012

    trust



  13. 1013

    you sound sincere.. but why post a video, i mean its not like you said it RIGHT after he hit you?



  14. 1014

    Perez, I appreciate everything you do. You are a good man! Everyone makes mistakes, you're human just like us! You're in my thoughts during this difficult time. Just keep thinking about July 4th and how thin you will be running down that beach!



  15. 1015

    Perez, stop beating yourself up. You made a mistake. You're not perfect. Using any word doesn't justify violence. They are cowards. You may not have handled it the best way possible but you're human. It happens. So, it's time to move on. My heart goes out to you. I'm sorry you're feeling this way.



  16. 1016

    … I wonder if this has anything to do with what the ladies of "The View" said.
    "The "F" word will never be uttered from my lips again. " Clearly not…. look at all this shit it's gotten you in. You also "reached out to Isaiah Washington." How noble of you. I'm sure he appreciates that after all the things you said about him. I think any apology that has to be written twice goes to show how insincere you really are. You disgust me.



  17. 1017

    Don't agonize over this anymore. Your admirers forgive you. The hatemongers will never understand you. So stay strong, sweetie.



  18. 1018

    i am proud of you Perez! You took the high road by apologizing for your use of words….I understand that you were angry, confused and felt like you were being attacked….anyone who reads your sight daily knows that you say YOUR truth on everything you post, good or bad…..this was not so serious and should not have been made into the ordeal that it was by WILL I AM NOT…..So what you don't like their album….you are allowed to your opinion….Some people do not like you….they are allowed to not like you as well…..what i personally do not approve of was the thought that violence was the only way that his entorauge felt that they could deal with this….i am behind you 100% Mario!!!! the black eyed peas have been out of it for a while now….sometimes reality is a hard pill to swallow……BTW…Fergie is FUGLY and the fact that she is with a hottie like Duhmel is somethign that i will never fully understand……love love love you Mario!!!!! FUCK GLAAD as well for trying to pressure you into an apology….they are just mad that you have blown up since you last worked for them ;)



  19. 1019

    You make your living by talking and gossiping unconscionably about the very people who decided to thump your skull. You lash out verbally and make a living doing so, totally flabbergasted when someone chooses to articulate their hurt with their hands. Excusable- no! Ironic- totally! Deserved 100%!

    Get over yourself! No-one is surprised you got smacked, and to be honest I can’t say no one cares, but it’s tremendously amusing how seriously you take yourself.



  20. 1020

    Incredible. The very next article mocks an anonymous young boy…calling him a pimply faced nerd. You'll NEVER learn. You are only concerned about YOUR feelings and the feelings of the gay community. Have a little empathy you worthless excuse for a human being.

  21. DaLa says – reply to this


    1021

    There are also a lot of straight people working tirelessly for gay rights, those of us in California fighting Prop 8, who were stunned and offended by your behavior. Thanks for the apology, donating any money won from Polo is a good start. Now, get over it. Let it go. Get back to celeb coverage and STOP including so many gay rights pieces in your blog. You've lost the high ground to do so for a while.



  22. 1022

    Mr. Perez, with all due respect, didn't you say you'd have attacked Miss California if she had won? Didn't you say you'd have "ripped" the crown off of her head on the runway if she had won? Isn't that violence? You shouldn't condemn violence from others if you tell the world you'd have taken violent actions yourself.



  23. 1023

    you're still a fucking dick!!!



  24. 1024

    I'm very proud of you, Perez. It takes a real man to own up to his mistakes!!!



  25. 1025

    I JUST WANT TO SAY THAT WAS VERY BIG OF YOU TO APOLOGIZE. GOOD FOR YOU, THAT RIGHT THERE SHOWS YOU ARE A BIGGER PERSON!



  26. 1026

    to all the people that think this was blown out of proportion, it was- by PEREZ. what a half assed apology, dragging out your victim status and slagging GLAAD. You are truly hopeless. Reached out to Isaah? hahahaha. as if. you have done more harm to young peoples self esteem by perpetuating bullying than anyone ever.



  27. 1027

    oh don't worry about Perez after this he'll go back to being a fluffer for snuff films part time and the rest of his week will be spent creeping around in an unmarked van casing school yards.



  28. 1028

    your video isnt playing so i have no idea what your talkin about but from what im reading im sorry that someone has done this to you and i hope you win in court:) much love from ohio



  29. 1029

    Bravo Perez. Let the haters - HATE. You are right, all things do happen for a reason and this will pass. You ARE a good person. And anyone who take their time to write to all the people who comment something positive, needs to get a life and a job. Hilarious how people will hate on Perez, but take hours reading other people's comments, just to leave those people rude comments. It's so funny. It only makes those people seem like idiots. I say anyone who hates Perez–should stay off the site. Perez should add thumbs up & thumbs down to the comments and people can pick which ones to keep and thumbs down the ones to boot. I am tired of reading all the negative posts. Get a grip folks.



  30. 1030

    I feel bad for you for what happened. Try not to be too sad. Do you really have to sue? Everyone is always sue happy. Even though the money would be donated, just let it go.



  31. 1031

    good job



  32. 1032

    Well done P, you're a good man - don't let the buggers get you down x



  33. 1033

    You´re so brave…nd this is why everyone should respect u!! :)



  34. 1034

    Ya know Perez… You did the right thing and sound totally sincere. I am sorry this had to happen to you but your became the better person out of the whole mess. Good Luck and God Speed.!!!!



  35. 1035

    drunk people doing stupid things, eat shit no one cares anymore



  36. 1036

    You're only apologizing because you got major backlash. And you're still making excuses for yourself. A real apology says, "I'm sorry. There's no excuse for what I did. I sincerely regret it," and that's it.

    Words can land just as violently as fists. You are a despicable human being.



  37. 1037

    good for you Perez….I have never stopped supporting you and have defended you on other blogs through all of this. We all lose it sometimes…it's understandable. Violence is never the answer. Be strong and know that I for one will still keep coming here checkin' out Perez! :)



  38. 1038

    So proud of you right now, we are all human and I think EVERYONE has learned from this experience. Good for you Mario, for apologizing sincerely :)



  39. 1039

    Too bad Carrie Prejean can't sue you for losing the MA Pageant! Have you aplogized to her for speaking her mind in a very tense, fluid moment when she probably felt ambushed by your question?



  40. 1040

    Drop the fucking law suit and move on then. By keeping the law suit going you look like an asshole that is looking to be the story instead of the asshole that needs a story.



  41. 1041

    FULL OF SHIT!

    Re: Minnesnowta

    I hope his 15 minutes are over. But he is like a fly, always bothering you until someone swats it.



  43. 1043

    OK , enough. This website used to be great for a quick laugh. Over the past few months though, it has gotten to be almost a site for hatred against people who have used their voice, as in freedom of speech. What I don't get is how you feel you have the right to voice your opinion but Miss California cannot. Seems like this site is getting really tedious. There is a fine line between laughter and actually attacking people. I personally feel like you have been attacking artists without a care of their respective views. There are many people who you could blog about who don't mind the attention - however, I feel that when someone approaches you in a calm matter and asks you to stop, that you should respect their privacy. Members of the Black Eyed Peas did in fact request this - you refused - and so ended up in this predicament. I am totally against any form of violence and I can appreciated your apology. I think it might be time to go back to silly humour and light laughter rather than tearing up artists who are going through some difficult times as I feel you have done to certain artists recently.



  44. 1044

    Its a word, just a word, an old word, that should have no meaning anymore…. You can say what you want its America! But ihave seen you harsher words on people before, get over it…

    1046

    holy shit, i didn't expect this. who wrote this for you? yes, i'm suspicious, sorry. we'll see if words and actions will follow this.



  47. 1047

    Oh for God's sake, everyone give this guy a break. I think you learned something really important about judging others and you've realized a lot about yourself and how it feels to be on the other side of a situation. Don't worry about it — everyone makes mistakes, and unfortunately yours was very public!! I challenge anyone out there to try and say they've never said anything derogatory to another human. We've all been there, we've all regretted it. So does he. Leave him alone.



  48. 1048

    If this were a statement from any other person, you would call this a half-assed apology Mario. You would be highlighting all those sentences that show your true insincerity.

    You're only sorry because of the backlash. I very much doubt you are capable of any introspection that would enable you to see what a giant, hypocritical douche you are!

    Sticks and stones may very well break your bones, but words can REALLY hurt you, and the things you have said about Fergie have been vile, contemptuous and extremely hurtful and without any provocation.

    How you decide who to love and who to loathe seems completely arbitrary. What are your reasons for hating Kristen Stewart? Why do you hate Fergie so much? Why on earth do you think you can mock a person's appearance when you are so unattractive yourself? Sure, you've lost some weight, but you still have genu valgum (knock knees).

    I hope those companies who enable you to spew your hatred on the internet decide to leave you. There are other gossip sites who deliver much more accurate news of celebrities without being so… despicable.

    You reap as you sow Mario. No man will ever love you because of your character.



  49. 1049

    That's quite the apology. One filled with qualifying statements, excuses and blowing your own horn. I'd say that your best bet would be to let your positive attributes speak for themselves and apologize sincerely if you really are sorry. It doesn't matter the circumstances, it doesn't matter what the intent was, just say "I'm sorry". It's just that simple. Saying too much sometimes negates the point.



  50. 1050

    By the way Mr. Perez, why don't YOU donate to the foundation and drop the case. Be a MAN for once in your life!



  51. 1051

    It's KARMA Mario! You trash people on a daily basis, what the hell do you expect? You can expect more of the same given your less than spiritual profession.



  52. 1052

    You're okay. I still love you. You are a good person and don't stress! Everything passes, before long this will be behind you. I'm sure you are a good, loving person!



  53. 1053

    ummm… 3rd apology?! obviously you must know you incited it, and you don't provoke mostly likely drunk, alphamale type jackasses like that. hate to say it, but invited their response… although violence is never the answer.



  54. 1054

    I alwayz
    luv=d ya
    no matter
    what u did
    or said:…..((huggz))…:
    and take care, ((my prezzzy♥))



  55. 1055

    I don't feel that you had to apologize, but its very big of you too.



  56. 1056

    Way to "MAN-UP". Now if their manager would just apologize to you. You at least deserve that. But, I hope you win the case. That's why we have laws. People can't just take the law into their own hands. Violence is never the answer…..unless it's self-defense.



  57. 1057

    Oh boo-hoo, Perez your sob story may work on some idiots! But not on me! I have absoloutely no sympathy for you. After all your whining and ranting, it was only a matter of time before you got punched in the face! You can't go on being such a petty, immature, shallow and rude man without karma coming back and biting you on the ass!

    Your big whiny rant about how you're the victim in this whole affair is laughable, you remind me of the guy who shouts "LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE!" Look you can just admit your wrong and stop painting yourself as the victim, you're NOT! You are a DISGRACE FOR A HUMAN BEING!

    And why would you insult your own sexual orientation by using the "F" word! You are simply a ridiculous excuse for a human being!

    1059

    Apologies should be made w/o excuses. Although you try to be sincere you also make an excuse, you were being attacked, you shouldn't be mocked. You should have just said, I did something wrong and Im sorry. I believe that you were under great pressure to save your reputation and website hits or you would have apologized the next day. I think that if you were really sirry, you would drop this lawsuit, try to be a better person in the future and just move on.



  60. 1060

    It takes a lot for me to apologize, too. Be proud of what you've done, Perez. You stood up for yourself and didn't use violence to solve a problem. Yes, it was a bad word choice, but you could've done a lot worse. Plus, you said you regretted it, and I really think you mean it. Good going, buddy. :)



  61. 1061

    I wonder if Kate, Candy, Mel and Octo-mom are sorry. Everyone f**ks up sometimes. Some people f**k up ALL the time!



  62. 1062

    im glad you apologized, it makes you the bigger man seriously. Will I Am just think he is better than everyone bc certain ppl make him feel that way as far as them being famous, they wouldnt have half of the publicity that they do if it weren't for you.



  63. 1063

    I'm sad to see that this week turned out to be one ugly mess. I do think you were wrong for calling him the "F" word, but my grandmother use to say "sticks & stones"…….but if every gay/lesbian/trans-gender person reacts the way Will acted there will be alot of fighting. I do understand why you said the things you said….someone standing in front of you basically "calling you out" in a crowd of people and not expect some sort of reaction…everyone reacts differently to situations & that was your way of defending yourself, & his reaction was a way of expressing himself (how sad). I am happy though that you are not apologizing to GLADD, I do respect their work but they are not the "end all" to certain situations.

    Will should also look at what you do for a living and not be surprised by your comments towards the Black Eyed Peas on your blogs (sticks & stones). It's like marrying a girl who you know is a cheat then surprised that she cheated on you.

    If everyone reacted in violence because someone said something about them…then everyone in the rap world will be facing criminal charges



  64. 1064

    Now you're remorseful when you realize that you turn into the most ignorant thing gays have to deal with when you're mad. It's people like you that make life harder on all the gays out there, closeted or not, struggling to be themselves. You're the "Queen of the Media"; everything is feminine, but not all homosexuals are. When gays do come to terms with themselves and tell their families and friends, they are often supported, and often shunned because of the stigma attached to them, thanks to the likes of you and many others out there. Then for you, the homosexual that is broadcasted worldwide to go on a tirade like that and use a gay slur MULTIPLE times in a negative connotation is just plain ridiculous. I really don't like you and I think you have things all wrong; we don't need somebody like you to preach equality.



  65. 1065

    wow you are incrdible perez this is truly the most mature act ive ever seen anyone in hollywood do. others should learn from your examply of handling situations they get themselves into.

    we love you perez, stay strong!!!!!!



  66. 1066

    25,000 for one punch?! Get a life! I hope the judge laughs at you and makes you pay for clogging up all the 911 phone lines.



  67. 1067

    10 to 1 says this was written because a) an advertiser on the site dropped him or b) an advertiser on the site threatened to drop him if no apology was posted.

    All about the dolla dolla bills ya'll.



  68. 1068

    Perez, hopefully you read this comment. I admire you! Ignore what people say you are brave. And we all have moments when we get so mad and say stupid things. IT HAPPENS TO EACH AND EVRY ONE OF US!! AND NOBODY CAN DENY IT! The only reoson you are being talked about negatively is becuase your really famouse. All of thse pople who are not taking your apology are hiprocrits. point blank.



  69. 1069

    Re: Addictedtothefame – Seriously. You are apologizing but you keep trying to justify yourself. You were wrong for what you said, and ok you 'apologized' in your twisted way but something tells me you're going to keep whining about this until you lose tons of readers. Stop being a BABY! you're in the public eye and you criticize, mock and verbally abuse celebs everyday! So when it happens to you how can you be surprised. I'm not saying you deserve to be hit. But man up and GET OVER IT! PS… you might seriously want to rethink the suing of Polo!..something tells me you won't be victorious! I understand you're pissed but think it over.. wait until you cool down, which in your case may take months… tooooooo emotional!



  70. 1070

    Re: backseatsurfer9

    your a hiprocrit. and mind your business. he has all the right to sue. Violence is never the answer, oviously you werent raised properly!



  71. 1071

    You offered a sincere apology. Now it's time for this whole thing to be dropped.
    xo



  72. 1072

    Okay apology now accepted, because it finally acknowledges that this whole mess could have been totally avoided, by you simply walking away! But you still need to apologize to GLAAD!!!!!



  73. 1073

    Thank you, Perez. I forgive you.

    I have to say this whole situation was really disappointing. But you did the right thing by apologizing sincerely. Thank you.



  74. 1074

    Where's the apology to Will and Fergie? U talk junk about people then u cry like a BITCH when u are confronted. U are a WUSS! A FAKE CELEBRITY! A STEREOTYPICAL DRAMA QUEEN! And a FAME WHORE! Go get a life and a real job!



  75. 1075

  77. 1077

    To all those saying that Perez should drop that charges - thats not how things work in Canada. In Canada, the police present the evidence to the Crown (the prosecutor) and the Crown decides whether or not to follow through with charges. Perez Canada drop the charges.

    As for those of you coming on here, calling Perez all kinds of names and basically verbally abusing him, in ways that he doesn't even do to celebrities, you are anonymous bullies. Everyone knows who Perez is and what he does. What about you? How, exactly are you better then he is? I don't see it. At least he puts his face to what he says.

    Not only that, but as it was once said (attributed to Voltaire, but likely not said by him) "I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."

    Everyone who posts here has free speech. So does Perez, and I personally will always defend that right.



  78. 1078

    Well, I feel better now, how about you. Seriously, you made it right. Good for you.



  79. 1079

    You realize you are apologizing to the wrong people? How about apologizing to Will.I.Am and Fergie for your continued insulting of her beauty, how about apologizing to Miley Cyrus and Vanessa Hudgens for referring to them as sluts, how about Rumor Willis who you have been calling potato head for years, how about Bobby Brown's daughter who you referred to as a slut when she was a mere 13, how Sarah Jessica Parker who you have called horse face…you catch my drift? You make a living off saying horrible things about people with no regard to their feelings, and the fact you do this with the children of famous people is just unforgivable.

    I have to say every crying, histrionic video I've seen of you this week is just embarrassing. Likewise, the video where you provoke someone into hitting you–it's pretty darn clear people were walking away until you decided to escalate things.

    Put your big boy britches on Perez, if you want to be respected as a man, you have to act like one. All I've seen so far is a crying young boy who doesn't understand why he can't name call and be verbally abusive, without having it come home to roost.

    This apology means nothing, it's more of your histrionics.

    While the apology is a good start… you are filing a civil lawsuit????
    Maybe you didnt get socked for the review… you got socked for commiting a hate crime.

    Sooooo…. the next time someone suffers a hate crime… if they are driven to retaliate (or was it self defense? - who knows what was in his head at that moment)… they should be sued?

    Probably not a good example to set.

    Perez, I am not a politically conservative person though my statement may come across that way. We Americans need to stop being so super touchy about calling other people names. There are those who would "wipe America off the map", try to end our way of life and we get all in bunches when someone says the "N" word or the "F" word like it's the end of the world. Is it pretty ignorant and childish to reduce ourselves to calling each other names…sure! But it's just words. Most likely, as angry as you were and desperate to lash back out, you rifled through your vocabulary for a word that would be the most venomous…what would have hurt most had it been flung in your direction….that's the "F" word, right? When in the face of confrontation, we don't always act rationally and we aren't always our best selves. We all say stupid things sometimes that we wish we hadn't and nobody isn't guilty of that. Relax!! You were in a tense situation and you said a word…BFD!

    Maybe I'm desensitized, maybe I'm just crass but they're only words and they only hurt the people who let them hurt. We should stop being so uppity and worry more about bigger problems!! I'm sure I'll catch a lot of hell for this post and I'm sure I don't know what those sorts of words mean to others…hey, I'm a straight, white girl but I know what it feels like to be made fun of for something I could do nothing about and it made me grow a tougher skin to ward off idiocy and learn that sometimes people say things for lack of something better to say and you shouldn't always jump all over it! Organizations like the NAACP and GLAAD do great things for people whose voices are muted by a larger power but as the "watchdog" they'll also bark at a lot of flies and passing cars! Not everything is SUCH a big deal!!

    now go go

    gossip please…

    I think this apology seemed very sincere. I think that people need to realize you are a human being and as such make mistakes. The fact you learned from your mistake and can humble yourself out to all the people who read your site, the press, the world…well it shows you are a person of strong character. Don't worry about the haters, there will always be those types, just stay positive.



  91. 1091

    From Argentina! We support you!! good for you for apologizing.don't worry! shit happens!



  92. 1092

    oh, and one more thing, Perez, you keep insulting that one guy that got his nose broke during a, "performance/stunt" that went wrong,…and keep telling him to just, "let-it-go-already!"…Well Perez, both parties in your situation were very wrong, and unfortunately, you decided to use words as vilolence, and Will.I.Am, unfortunately, chose to use fists!!!!



  93. 1093

    I don't even think you're gay. I think you are a frumpy fat boy who couldn't get a woman and you thought you might be accepted by gays. You aren't. you are a disdrace

    LET'S SMACK PEREZ

    This is good for you to kneel down and take it up the butt. Remember this when you're really taking it up the butt.

    Perez, this is the very first time I've left a comment — I applaud you. I really do. I "get it." We all make mistakes and to own up to that, to take ownership of your mess-ups is great. I also think that standing up for yourself is important to - don't regret doing that! Noone should judge you for what you say in the heat of the moment. Only YOU know how it felt to be put in the position you were in. It takes a man to apologize…and an even bigger man to accept responsibility for perpetuating a similar situation with Isiah Washington; which is what really stirred me to type this. Never thought I'd say this…but I"m proud of you, P!



  97. 1097

    WAIT. YOU'RE NOT GONNA APOLOGIZE TO GLAAD?
    YOU FUCKING COWARD.



  98. 1098

    You go Brother… Whatever the case, things happen. You have brought plenty of people countless hours of things to giggle about and think about during mundane work hours. You bring attention to things people don't always see.
    Forgive and Forget…at least Forgive…it will all work out in the end.
    xo

    I think reclaiming the language has value, I really do. I don't think it should be used negatively, as that sort of reinforces the negative connotation, but it's tricky water you know?

    Regardless, apologizing is very classy, and well done for you.
