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"

    Now THIS is a good statement:
    Black Eyed Peas singer will.i.am has released a second statement in the form of a new video blog in response to the incident that occurred in Toronto last weekend with celebrity blogger Perez Hilton.

    "I will not continue to comment specifically on the event that happened in Toronto this past weekend, but I don't want my silence to be misunderstood," he says. "I don't condone violence or harassment of any kind. No one deserves physical abuse. And no one deserves verbal abuse. No one deserves any of that. Everyone needs to be respected."

    Hilton is suing Peas manager Liborio "Polo" Molina, who he alleges punched him following an argument between the blogger and will.i.am Sunday night at a Toronto nightclub.

    "As far as character allegations against myself, members of the Black Eyed Peas, and members of management I believe the truth will speak for itself once all the details of the event are fully presented," will.i.am says. "Hateful slurs racial or gay should not be used as verbal weapons to provoke violence. Let us all learn from the events that happened in Toronto. This situation has already taken valuable time, energy, and attention away from more important and in some cases devastating issues happening in our world

    Great Foundation. See, good can come out of something bad. Hugs



  3. 1303

    I am glad perez reached otu to isaiah and that he recognised his error. I have had so much respect for the work Perez has done as an "activist" (a label he probably doesn't want), on the gay issue. I am not gay, but over the years, reading this web site inspired me to care more about these issues. So I was truly disappointed when I heard he used the F word, especially when he came down so hard on Isiah and caused him to lose his job.

    So very well done, Perez. You have shown yourself to be the bigger man.



  4. 1304

    Perez, you should have never been punched. Violence is not the answer but you provoked him using hateful words. You are a spineless homophobic prick. I am embarrassed that you claim to represent the gay community.

    perez,why do you feel you have to keep apologizing for this situation. this was not-is not- your fault. the outrage should be on the black eyed peas. this is on them…not you ….we love you perez…..stay strong

    enough already let it die



  9. 1309

    It disgusts me that anyone would say someone else deserves to be physically hurt. I remember feeling the same disgust listening to my local radio show callers talk about Chris Brown and Rihanna. Women were calling in saying she should have handled it differently and then maybe she wouldn't have been hit. They were blaming her! NOTHING condones physical violence..NOTHING. When are we going to realize that as a society? When are people going to stop justifying physical violence in America?



  10. 1310

    you're a publicity whore. enough already with your halfhearted apologies.



  11. 1311

    That was a sincere apology Mario and I am thrilled to read that you have finally realized that calling someone the f name is hurtful and wrong.
    This is a good STARTING point.
    Mario calling ANYONE AN OFFENSIVE NAME IS ABUSIVE.
    You letter indicates that you have yet to come to this realization. This is much bigger than just a gay rights thing - this is basic HUMAN RIGHTS.
    You mention that someone was verbally attacking you - and that you felt hurt by that, and yet YOU DO THAT VERY THING everyday.
    No one deserves to be treated like that.
    My question to you is this:
    When are you going to apologize to Fergie and all the other people that you have cruelly attacked and slandered for years?
    That is the letter that people are waiting for.
    Think of it - the day when Mario learns that being petty, mean and vindictive is a complete waste of a life.
    IMAGINE………



  12. 1312

    Oh shut the hell up already Perez, you're really starting to get on my nerves and why would you name drop Isaiah Washington, he's hardly a role model?! Just do all of this in private and stop spouting off about it.



  13. 1313

    perez the world loves you…..let this die down



  14. 1314

    your the best



  15. 1315

    You are still being DISHONEST.
    .
    "Repeated blows" is DISHONEST. You were only lightly tapped. Nothing compared to the pain you dish out to others every day.
    .
    "Someone that was verbally attacking me"? YOU did the verbal attacking on that night and countless times prior. YOU were the BULLY.
    .
    "Violence is never the answer. Never." BS. Sometimes it IS the answer. YOU asked for it and YOU got it. It's the risk you run when you run your mouth. YOU cowardly hide in your apartment while ruining careers and lives and expect no repercussions? What arrogance!



  16. 1316

    shame on you…. for a known person ( a people ) what you were talking can't be apologized. you need to learn to be sorry about you first…



  17. 1317

    "Victims should not be mocked." More of your DISHONESTY.
    YOU are the BULLY that CONSTANTLY MOCKS people. Day in and day out.
    You are NOT a victim. YOU are a VICTIMIZER who got what was coming.
    .
    "Instead, I chose - in a very misguided way - to stand up for myself…" Another lie.
    No. You chose to indulge your great big fat EGO and expected others to take you sh** in person like you force it down their throats over the Internet. REAL LIFE is not an Internet fantasy and people will fight back in real life.
    .
    "I will be donating any money collected from my lawsuit against Polo Molina…"
    More of your BS. You should APOLOGIZE to all of the BEP, including Polo Molina. YOU caused all of this. YOU VICTIMIZED the BEP and you are further VICTIMIZING Polo Molina. You are DISHONEST in the extreme.



  18. 1318

    Please! How many phony SORRY letters are you gonna write? One every few days for the next year? You deserve all of the negative attention and backlash you are receiving. Is this the first time that you're realizing how hated and loathed you are, not just by the general public and your own gay community but by all the celebrities? More than 91% of the world feels you rightfully deserved to get punched. Words hurt way more than a little cut to the face, and the impact and devastation of such words can last much longer. I hope that all of your sponsors drop you and invest their finances elsewhere.

    What a load of crap.If you were truly soory,you waste of flesh,you would stop posting the nasty,vile,often libelous things you do.

    "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."
    .
    Well, now, at least you show some shread of honesty and human decency here. For that, YOU should be grateful. No one did more in DESTROYING Mr. Washington's life than did you.
    Mario, hopefully you will use this experience to change your ways.
    You have a wonderful platform that can be used for the good of all. So far, though, you have ABUSED it by being a BULLY.
    .
    I'm sure you are bullying just as you were bullied in the past, but, ABUSING OTHERS is NOT a healthy way to resolve whatever conflicts you may have.



  21. 1321

    A lot of people, myself included, look back on situations and see what we could have done, or should have done. I hate that this happened to you. When someone feels threatened, you either fight or flight and you chose to stand up for yourself and not be pushed around or intimidated. IMO you said something that was very hurtful to you when it has been said to you in the past (I think I read that on here on an earlier post) and that is what your mind went to. I have always liked the Black Eyed Peas and Fergie's music, but never thought they would be such jerks and revert to violence. I hope you get better and can get over this happening to you.



  22. 1322

    Perez Perez Perez. When you are truly sorry for something you have done in the past you simply say 'I am sorry…I effed up"
    ***You DON'T file LAWSUITS you drama queen*** Drop the lawsuit and donate some of the "hard" earned money that you have made by trashing people in the entertainment business to whatever cause you see fit.
    No matter what you think- Karma is a bigger bitch than even you Mario.



  23. 1323

    That is an apology? The ONLY reason this douche bag made this half hearted attempt is trouble from advertisers. You can bet your bottom dollar on that.



  24. 1324

    Oh BABES- it is gonna be alright. You were just stressed that talentless monkey messed with you- BE STRONG and keep dishing babes

    1325

    I think it is great that you said your apology. I am not sure why you are apologizing though. I am conflicted if it is because you know you are close to losing all of this fame and your followers. Without your followers you would quickly go back to just being Mario which is maybe what you should do! If it is sincere and there is no other motive than good for you! I don't think violence is the answer. I do think that if we are aware that our words are going to provoke someone to thrash out in a violent manner than you should be held accountable for those words, just as the physical abuser is held responsible for his actions. We can not continue to go around and treat people with such blatant disrespect. This is why our world is crumbling. No one gives anyone respect. Thus physical and verbal abuse continues to rise. I feel it would be in your best interest Perez to look at how your words affect those around you. As Perez and Mario. There is still time to change your site, and who you are. To make a positive change in this world.



  26. 1326

    Too late PeRez. You are only apologizing because you have been called out for all the hate you spew. You should find another career.



  27. 1327

    That was so nice Perez! Good for you! It sounds like you have learned a lot from this experience, and I think it is great that if nothing else good comes from this situation that you learned that all people make mistakes. People say things in the heat of the moment, and it doesn't necessarily make them a bigot or a homophobe, just someone who has made a mistake.



  28. 1328

    youre a baby. a big baby.



  29. 1329

    Personally, I don't think you needed to apologize. Any idiot that can't hold it together because you said something to his friend, is a thug and should be arrested for his actions.
    The words you used should not offend the gay community, the ridiculous amount of abuse you've received on these blogs should be. The name calling sickens me.
    "Asking for it"."Got what you deserved".
    No victim of a physical crime should ever be subjected to that kind of BS response. It's something we learn in grade school, keep your hands to yourself.
    I guess it's to be pitied. Their mothers didn't teach them coping skills, or anger management.



  30. 1330

    OH PLEASE DO SHUT IT! BLOODY LOSER! YOUR APOLOGY IS SO HALF HEARTED IT'S NONSENSE! DOUBLE STANDARD ARSE WIPE LIKE YOU! MISS CALIFORNIA SPOKE HER MIND AND YOU WOULDN'T LET IT GO. YOU GIVE THE GAY COMMUNITY THAT YOU APOLOGIZE TO A BAD NAME. I HAVE GAY FRIENDS WHO HAVE SAID YOU DESERVE THE WHOLLOP YOU GOT AND MORE! YOU ARE BIPOLAR AND A CELEBRITY HAG! NO ONE GIVES A SHIT ABOUT MONEY YOU RAISE FROM A LAW SUIT, THAT YOU ARE CURRENTLY DELUDED BELIEVING THAT YOU WILL WIN. DO YOU HAVE LAWYERS? HAVE THEY NEVER WARNED YOU THAT SLANDER IS A BITCH? YOUR BROKE ASS WILL BE PAYING EVERY CELEBRITY YOU EVER TOOK A VERBAL SLING AT FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.GET REAL! YOU DISH IT BUT YOU CAN'T EAT IT!!! SHUT IT BITCH! YOU A VICTIM??? HA! RIGHT!ALL THE PEOPLE YOU VICTIMIZED ON THIS STUPID SITE OF YOURS. YOU ARE A GIGANTIC BUFOON!WITH YOUR DOUBLE STANDARD, CONFUSED SELF!YOU NEED HELP. SEEK IT AND GET IT.PUTTING YOUR SHIT ON PEOPLE YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW AND WISH YOU WERE.PUNK!!!!!! SHUT IT BEFORE SOMEONE ELSE SMACKS YOUR ASS BITCH!



  31. 1331

    With all due respect, Perez. Have you ever taken a step back to be the observer? What I mean is, acknowledge what you do for a living. In the simplest of terms, you mock people. And now you're surprised that someone wants to punch you? I mean, really? Imagine if Joe Francis got upset every time he was sent to jail. Acknowledge what it is you do to pay your bills, and laugh your way to the bank. But please don't make these bad-therapy-session videos. much love.



  32. 1332

    I am SO HAPPY you apologized! I'm sorry you were hurt. That cannot go unnoticed. But you're a strong person to defeat your inner battle and apologize!
    PEREZ FOR PREZ!!!!!



  33. 1333

    john maher is trying to get people to black ball you. he said he is starting a campain tonight.



  34. 1334

    P-Hilty,
    I am so proud of you for these words! You absolutely had the right to defend yourself, but that word, had it been used in the same way against you, would have infuriated you. I am so happy to read your comments above. I adore your blog and you..(you always say what's on your mind!) However I need to ask, is it fair to build celebs up one minute then trash them the next? I understand that with fame comes good and bad…but if someone is fab one minute, how can they be trash by the next week? (i.e. Britney for example) That woman has worked hard to get her life together and one minute you praise her, then the next you trash her…..
    I wouldn't want to be a celeb for all the money in the world. But I still love ya to pieces!



  35. 1335

    Oh for God's sakes, get over it.



  36. 1336

    SO HOW ABOUT DROPPING YOUR LITTLE BOY LAWSUIT!! IT IS NOT ABOUT FREE SPEECH AT ALL!! the altercation started because of what you write on your blog, but you got hit for calling him a f*ggot, end of story. stop trying to be a martyr. i am not mocking you, the "victim," im just saying you provoked him on purpose. DO NOT MAKE THIS SOMETHING ITS NOT, ITS NOT ABOUT FREE SPEECH MARIO AND YOU KNOW IT!! also, how about you address the rumors that you were doing coke in the bathroom right before the incident. if it wasnt true you would have refuted it by now. im disappointed in your handling of this whole thing. your damage control is transparent.



  37. 1337

    You have chosen a career where altercations may erupt at any given time. I respect you for that! I am glad that you have apologized for the word you used to express yourself. Unfortunately we learn from our mistakes. I think you are an exceptional person and now you understand what happens and how it feels to be at the receiving end of hurtful things.

    Re: Mouse1 – mhm. i don't know what chink perez has got, i haven't seen one yet, but either way.
    yeah, people will scream and shout at everything he says from now on. but if he's careful this will backleash them, not him. one can be critically and funny without insulting. but i don't think that he will have the strength to maintain both - the "fun" and respectability, i wouldn't have the strength, too.



  39. 1339

    Re: mrs. tank – who in the hel said Will.I.Am told Polo to hit him? Will.I.Am cant be held responsable for someone elses actions, yet Perez should and MUST be held accountable for his own. some of you all need to pull your heads out of Perez's ass long enough to see whats really going on in the world and how he has instuled Celebs children who should in no way ve tergeted and attacked by Perez! its fine if you want to be a critic and go at their work but as Perez likes to flout about, "what i do for a living and who I am are two seperate things" so he has no right to attack them on a personal level or out them. I dont think you left GLAAD I think they left you, Mario!. now its time for you to eat some humble pie and shut your mouth, That , or apologise to all the kids you attacked just because you think its "cool"



  40. 1340

    I commend you for reaching out to Isiah Washington. Black people have been unfairly targeted by the gay lobby (rap artists, Prop 8) , and you now recognize that epithets are hurled in anger and do not really convey what one truly feels.

    Good on you. Now apologize to Fergie and Will.i.am. They didn't beat you down, and you called them both nasty names.

  41. Theo says – reply to this


    1341

    I think it is admirable that you admitted that you were wrong. Good for you.

    But the problem that remains is that you expose people for doing the wrong thing and you are not "censored". When all of this came down with you, a huge amount of comments were not printed. Some just asking questions. That makes you a hypocrite, as you sue Will.i.am for the right to free speech.



  42. 1342

    Re: "Violence is never the answer. Never."

    Maybe not, but it's somewhat expected when you purposely escalate a situation by calling someone a "F*****g fa**ot!" Moreover, it's pretty clear that you know this since your legal team is trying to claim that you were hit in response to your "refusal to stop writing" about people on your blog, rather than being hit because of what you called will.i.am. Which, I'm sure your legal team told you, would be considered "reasonable provocation" for being hit the way you were. It has nothing to do with your blog buddy, put that free speech card away.



  43. 1343

    Oh, that's Bullshit Perez! Word reached public in last couple days that you refused to apologize to GLAAD so of course you know you have to make up for it! Which would be the reason for the whole cocky attitude towards them! What a hypocrite! I hope you are never allowed to judge someone else on their response to gay issues or judge another talent, pageant or any type of contest again.



  44. 1344

    Perez, that is not only the most mature thing you have EVER said, it may be one of the most mature things I have heard in a very long time from anyone.

    You have surprised me in the best possible way.

    You've obviously learned a HUGE life lesson, and now hopefully it will be contagious to anyone who reads what you wrote.



  45. 1345

    Wow…so many posts on the same subject.
    No one had the right to hit you…we all say things when we've had a few drinks and if your story is true they were harassing you all night from one place to another.
    What you should have done is laughed at them and said that you were going to write a story about what they were doing in the morning…THAT WOULD HAVE PISSED THEM RIGHT OFF.
    Good luck in your lawsuit…
    My question is, why is it that so many American performers come up here and think its the wild fucking west and assault others? Ja Rule for example.



  46. 1346

    you are a disgusting human being. this is no apology..what about Will?



  47. 1347

    I find this whole thing funny as hell. You do nothing but spew hate at people and then cry like a girl when you get it back. First you have no case against this man you got in his face and im sure as big and fat as you are tiny lil Will-i-am and his people felt threatened so they made a preemptive strike.Who care's if your sorry im sure your parents are sorry as well for ever bringing you in to this world. Your an embarrassment to even your own cause. Get a real job no one cares wtf you have to say the only reason im even commenting is to let you know how much joy you gave me watching you cry over that lil dot under your eye. In closing i would like to share the thoughts of the majority of people in this county by saying just kill yourself and do us all a favor



  48. 1348

    Re: Ginnic01 – A hero for picking on celebs kids who are really none of his damn concern? Yeah a hero in hell maybe.



  49. 1349

    1370 hit it right on the mark!



  50. 1350

    I think this is stupid… not because of what you said, which was very heartfelt, but because you shouldn't have to be apologizing still. You are human… just because you live in the public eye people will scrutinize everything you say. You acted the way a lot of people would have acted and, famous or not, you've made your ammends and if people still aren't satisfied with it - too bad for them! People don't always do the right thing… just be happy and be you!



  51. 1351

    I'm proud of you Perezers. I know that must have been really hard. I didn't think you were that out of line in what you said but it's noble of you to apologize for hurting people's feelings.



  52. 1352

    Well, that was a good apology. Whatever your reasons were for posting this letter, it's a good start. I don't know what is going on between you and GLAAD, but that's between you and them. It's nice of you to reach out to Isaiah Washington. Maybe now you will see how a mistake can totally take over your life. Words do so much damage. Hopefully, you have learned not to publicly crucify others for something that can, and does, happen to anyone on a daily basis. We're all human, we make stupid mistakes. We say and do things that we regret but can't take back. Learn from this, Perez. Teach others what you have learned. Unfortunately, you will not be given a lot of sympathy because you have not shown sympathy to others in the past who have gone through what you're going through now, like Isaiah Washington for example. Try not to be so harsh and judgmental towards others. You don't always know the whole story. People do regret the things they say in the heat of the moment, it's just that they aren't given the chance to express that. Labels, names, lawsuits, mockery, hatred-these are things that you are going to have to deal with now, with more intensity than ever. Apologies are a good place to start, but they can't always heal what you've damaged.



  53. 1353

    Good for you, Perez. I think it was an important thing to do, as you are a public figure, and have the eyes and ears of our younger generation. No one is immune to making mistakes, but it's how you handle them that counts. Now lets hope your attacker does the same. Just one thing - you can still stand up for yourself without resorting to derogatory terms. You even blog about respecting the celebrities that take the high road and don't fight back. You're maturing Perez, and I'm proud of you.



  54. 1354

    estoy muy contenta que sea capaz usted que pueda ser el que de el primer paso para aceptar sus errores … ahorta no mas falta la disculpa de los otros … es usted una persona buena



  55. 1355

    Even your lust bunny has taken a pop at you…

    Zac Efron and Breckin Meyer have joined forces for a skit that pokes fun at the alleged spat between Perez Hilton and the Black Eyed Peas.

    The internet video, posted on FunnyOrDie.com, sees Meyer ranting to the camera about being treated unfairly by the High School Musical star at a skating event.

    "I skated up to Zac Efron and asked if it was okay if I couple skated with his girlfriend. Zac said yes. His girlfriend said yes. For one song," he explains.

    "And then when the Titanic song came on the speakers they couple skated! Solo skating during couple skating should never happen! It is not the answer!"

    He goes on to say: "What happened to me at the Robot Chicken Escape Party happened to me as a human being and should never ever happen. Never ever. Never!"

    His rant ends with Efron appearing on screen to deliver a nonchalant apology after Meyer demands that he say sorry.

    The clip mocks a 12-minute video statement posted by Hilton on his website earlier this week following an alleged altercation between himself and will.i.am in Canad

    You just can't help yourself can you? Even when you apologize you have this innate way of just flat out being self serving.
    Oh well you are who you are. But use some of that money if you ever do get it to seek some help.



  60. 1360

    Perez, you still don't seem to "get it". Now you're "sorry" yet you continue to justify your actions, make excuses, claim you're "taking back" an offensive word, labeling yourself a victim, attempting to justify it all because you were "standing up for yourself"…saying you'll donate money, blah..blah…blah…..what next? A photo of you hanging from a cross in Holy Martyrdom? Here is some advice….just say "I'm sorry" and shut the hell up…move on and concentrate on doing some major damage control to your image…seriously, from talking with my friends about this, you have definitely come out on the losing end….Man Up and Shut up.

    Re: PeaceloveJB – dont pretend you speak for all in toronto because ya dont.



  62. 1362

    And you are suprised that you got hit? Please you make your living by making fun of people and saying rude things, it was bound to happen, grow up, suck it up and maybe take a look at your life and realize that it is not ok to talk down about people and belittle them to make yourself feel like a bigger or better person, deal with your issues from the past that has given you the self esteem that causes you to want to make fun of people and judge them. You know with your own lifestyle that you don't like to be judged, so why do it to others. It is the golden rule. Stop your whining. Accept it for what it is. You opened your mouth and was rude and you got popped for it. Move on.



  63. 1363

    perez…way to step it up….i did feel like you spoke out of anger…and when i saw your youtube video i was in shock with some of the things coming out of your mouth! but i think this was needed… this will help you learn for future situations and make you stronger as a person

    Well, at least it's an apology, even though it seems forced and insincere by virtue of bitchslapping GLAAD for no apparent reason. Now would be a good time for you to apologize to everyone else you've hurt (words are violence too) with your filth and bile, including, but not limited to, Lily Allen, Britney Spears, Adam Sandler (for calling his little girl fat and ugly), Alexa Ray Joel, Rumer Willis, Lindsay Lohan, Beth Ditto, Amy Winehouse, Frances Bean Cobain, Miley Cyrus, and most importantly, FERGIE! Your hateful words against these women on a site read mainly by young girls, combined with your status as a "celebrity" (and I use that term very loosely), are why young girls nowadays have self-esteem issues. You say violence and hate speech are wrong and never the answer, but your continued verbal attacks against these women and children constitute exactly that. You are hating on women, who are also a minority group.
    Also, you say you want to help the gay community…well, your past treatment of Dustin Lance Black, a respected and well loved member of said community (unlike you), instantly negates anything you will ever say or do about "helping" the gay community.



  70. 1370

    ok look, i don't think that you deserved to get hit, violence isn't the answer to anything… but dude you were fucking wrong

    this is a bull shit apology because you're tryna make yourself look like the victim but everybody fucked up, there weren't any victims, just a bunch of dumb asses, YOU included…

    And let's just put this out there, GLAAD does amazing work for the Gay and Lesbian community, you need to apologize to them too…

    And why'd you bring in Isaiah Washington? If you're gonna apologize to him you need to apologize to Ms. California too. You didn't have to bash her just because she had an opinion that didn't sit well with you.

    You have plenty of opinions that i wanna smack you for, but do you see me bashing you? No… I mean god, you let her know you didn't agree with it, you should have just left that shit alone.

    Anyway, I lost respect for you a long time ago, and this really just added insult to injury. This was a passive aggressive ploy to remain a victim.

    Point? This apology sucked, try again dude



  71. 1371

    funny how you've thrown peoples names in the mud for using the same word, you've reached out to isaih are you kidding us, you basically got him kicked of grays anatomy, miss california you aboslutely screwed over, and your video is priceless, and these two apologies since the incident are even more hilarious, you make a living off peoples misery and drama, but yet you dont like it when your own drama is played out in front of the world, if you were really a big boy like you say in your video, you'd realize karmas a bitch, and it finally got you, im pretty sure half of the celebrity community is laughing at your reaction to all of this, all the work you've done for the gay community the last few years is has now gone down the shitter, gluck getting any credibility back,



  72. 1372

    No matter the situation..no matter the issue….striking someone is not the way to handle a situation…Perez, remember the type of people ur dealing with in that situation…..Glad u apologized….Stay Strong



  73. 1373

    You, of course, are starting to realize that you may have just DESTROYED YOUR CAREER just as you have destroyed the careers of others.
    .
    Isaiah Washing and Carrie Prejean for starters.
    .
    How does it feel Mr. Passive/Agressive?



  74. 1374

    From Australia….you're a disgrace Perez. The way you tore down Miss California for having the audacity to have a personal opinion was disgraceful. You live an empty, vapid life and your money is made off mocking and denigrating other people, usually teenagers who don't know any better. I hope that fills your worthless existance with some form of meaning, because I can tell you right now, once you drop off this mortal coil your achievements and contributions to the human race will be rated amongst criminals, lawyers and other dregs of society.
    You wave your sexuality on your sleeve, (unlike most people, who with all decency keep it private) and deride anyone who dares speak anti-pink yet you use probably the most derogatory word possible related to your sexuality as an insult, and wonder why you got punched?
    Seriously, I hope this is just the first step on your path to irrelevance. And to all your 'supporters', thanks for assisting in dropping the collective world IQ down into double digits.



  75. 1375

    all that and still feeling very good about FALSELY ACCUSING a man (another human being - Will.i.am) of beating you. Slander does not make you couragious, noble or a person of any sincerity.



  76. 1376

    Perez - no one says it quite like you and again you are an inspiration.
    Thank you and be well.



  77. 1377

    Love you Perez ♥!



  78. 1378

    Thanks Perez. Though I am not gay, I was horrified by YOU of all people using that word as a WEAPON, which simply states that 'f_____' is a terrible thing to be! It is simply a derogatory word for "gay" so what an ODD thing for you to use. I KNEW that when you calmed down you would see how wrong this was. I still hope you win the suit and this A____ learns that VIOLENCE IS NEVER THE ANSWER. EVER.

  79. YUCK says – reply to this


    1379

    bottom line perez is not sincere and even more annoying than that is that he really thinks he can insult our intelligence. he is too old to behave like this, he is a liar and a perpetual second rate idiot. I have filed a complaint with the ACLU for his offensive language towards young women and fa**ots everywhere. and trust me I will one day have the pleasure of giving him a black eye. I noticed he only has little ads on his front page, that is so funny to me. I can hardly wait till he can no longer afford to have a pink backdrop on his sit. fat fuck.



  80. 1380

    Anyone who has had a trauma like this would respond as you did and would also understand the hurt and anger that jagoff caused you. Good on you for looking at it and addressing, what you felt, was inappropriate. I think you're wonderful Perez. Keep rollin'.



  81. 1381

    Way to go Perez. You know, we all make mistakes - and in light of the fear that you were feeling, it makes perfect sense. I'm so sorry this happened to you. And I'm glad you wrote this wonderful letter. My advice to you is to pick your chin up, look forward and do good as far as the eyes can see. EVERYONE makes mistakes, we all have the ability to move up and onward. You go, girl.



  82. 1382

    I think you got what you deserved! For years, you have made a living trashing people and acting like you were soooo perfect! Now you have paid for your actions and words. You were calling someone names and they reacted, maybe not in the best way, but maybe the only way they knew how. I think you are only dragging this out now by filing a law suit. I hope that they sue you for deflamation of character-you deserve it!



  83. 1383

    Good for you Perez. Hopefully now people will let this go already…



  84. 1384

    Personally… I hope you dont get any money from the lawsuit. Polo had a RIGHT to hit you why would you even say that to Will? What was your problem were you drunk or did you think you were on top of the world and noone could touch you? You



  85. 1385

    YOUR A BIG ASSHOLE. TOO LITTLE TOO LATE FOR YOUR VERBAL VIOLENCE. YOU SLANDER SO MANY CELEBRITIES I HOPE THEY ALL START SUEING YOU.



  86. 1386

    Your reader volume must be going down. Do you thnk the F word is the only stinging thing that hurst whe it comes out your mouth? Besides, YOu attacked Ferfie first ANY man, gay or not, Will.I.Am or not would have defended a lady.



  87. 1387

    Turn the other cheek errrr EYE!

    You deserved it Perez and YOU know it!



  88. 1388

    Perez, please stop being so hard on yourself! FUCK everyone! who fucking cares what you said! everyone makes mistakes and say things when in rage! WHO CARES!



  89. 1389

    Nice work Perez. That's a tough thing to admit. Peace to you all.



  90. 1390

    Really dude? He had a right to hit not saying violence is the answer but seriously your suppose to be sticking up for gays and your basically slandering all of them including yourself. I hope you dont receive any money and I hope Will.i.am Sues your ass for slander because you were in the wrong not him. Yes you apologized but you need to APOLOGIZE to WILL.I.AM. Dont think your a "man" cause your apologized to the world. You really need to find another hobby cause your really annoying and I personally dont think your doing anything right for this world. Calling gays and lesbians out of there name… shit I think they should do it to you too then how would u fell? Like shit.



  91. 1391

    Your apology is sincere. I totally understand why you got very upset. I would be very upset, too. I agree that violence will not take care the problem. It makes things worse. Somebody like the manager must be able to talk without punching somebody. People who use violence to take are of business are so stupid. They are like 3-year-olds, or terrible 2. Such ignorant adut send bad messages to children. The manager should have been taken to a police. Cheer up and take care.



  92. 1392

    Perez! Don't be sorry so what black people call each other black all the time! Isn't like you were being mean you were calling him out! Don't be sorry for anything! You still have your fans!



  93. 1393

    What a crock. Perez, you are the most hypocritical human being I've ever met (and yes I've met you in person)
    Your narcissism is going to be the end of you. As much as I come here because you're bookmarked & it's an easy read, I wouldn't miss you at all if you just disappeared. Which, I hope happens soon.



  94. 1394

    I think it is great to apologize for something you think you have done wrong but I still think you are justying your actions with this passive agressive apology above. Words like "than the repeated blows I suffered to my head in Toronto this past weekend." (just so we dont forget why you did it) AND "reclaiming a hurtful word" (I dont beleive that word was yours to begin with) Never heard you use it before on your blog. But I have heard you call people meth face and other choice words so name calling is very much your forte! Lets not make any mistake here, you make a living by taking jabs at people just as much as anything else you promote on this site. So lets NOT pretend that however wrong the "Violence" part of this was, your part was EQUALLY as wrong. Equally perez, a word you clearly dont understand yet.



  95. 1395

    that takes balls!!! love u p



  96. 1396

    You know, I'm not gay but I totally support my gay friends. When I saw the video & heard you drop the "F" bomb (and not f**k), I was quite shocked. You normally support the gay community & I love that about you - you stand for what you believe. I couldn't believe my ears when I heard you say that word. At that moment, I felt you were no better than those you oppose & I was very disappointed with you. I have to say, your apology does not condone your use of the word but the apology does show you understand your mistake, the willingness to admit & apologize for the mistake is very mature & I commend you for that.
    Remember, you are now in the public eye too & the things you say & the things you do are often recorded & are scrutinized by the media & the public just like your website. I'm very proud of you & you should be too. Much love, Kiki



  97. 1397

    omg wot an example the black eyed peas have for kids!? hope ur ok perez ???



  98. 1398

    It's a start I guess. I still don't think you really "get" it though. You tried to separate yourself from PEREZ the other day and say you were speaking as "Mario" but when you go out in public who are you? If you were Mario why would Will.i.am's asking you to tone down your rhetoric towards Fergie & TBEP's bother you? I still think you are a very confused, hypocritical, mean hearted person. You still need to apologize to Will.i.am for slandering him, and you should drop your law suit because you were the provoker, you are NOT faultless in this fight.



  99. 1399

    YOU'RE A GREAT GUY PEREZ, DNT TRIP ITS ALL GOOD. THINGS HAPPEN. I HAVE YOUR BACK ALL THE WAY! FUCK BLACK EYED PEAS THEY SUCK ASS ANYWAYS!!!!! BOOM BOOM LMFAO!!!THEY HAD IT KUMIN DUDE. I LOVE U PEREZ YOU'RE AWESOME. KEEP YOUR HEAD UP AND I SEND U LOTS OF LOVE & HUGS:) SORRY FOR A BAD WEEK. YOUR THE BETTER PERSON PEREZ :)



  100. 1400

    If you're still gonna sue I think you should match all payments out of your own pocket for your charity.
    Other than dropping the suit I think this is the only way to half ass redeem yourself
