| Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal Matters

Calm down, Ron Livingston!

The Office Space star has been the butt of an internet troll's joke for months and now Livingston is taking legal action!

Ron's Wikipedia page has been the target of a hacker who has continually been changing the actor's relationship status to say he's involved with a man named Lee Dennison.

The hacker even went as far as to create a Facebook profile for Dennison, alluding that Livingston is homosexual.

Oh NO!

People may think he's GAY????

It's just the internet, y'all.

Livingston, who is married to Rosemarie Dewitt, has filed a suit against the troll (name withheld) for libel, invasion of privacy and using his image without permission.

    weird! i guess if he was hacking in his account than thats just wrong…otherwise it shouldnt really matter….i wonder who Lee Dennison is tho??



  2. 2

    Well…while there isnt anything wrong with being gay it is still an invasion of privacy. Plus as easily as people believe rumors it could be hurtful to his current relationship. Plus-Im a big fan of RL…he is yummy!

    that's because being gay is the worst thing you can attack someone for or that can happen to a son. that or a drug addict. i don't think there is something worse/more dissapointinng that can happen to a son than those two things.

    *Calm down, Ron Livingston.. It's just the internet, y'all*
    Mario, you'll never know how straight people feel if they're being called gays/lesbians. I'll also freak out if someone called me a lesbian and spread it all over the INTERNET, where everyone can easily read.
    Don't get me wrong. I have homo friends and I have no problem with their sexual preference.. but I'll NEVER be okay if I'm being accused as a lesbian.



  5. 5

    Perez are you the crazy troll you are taking about?



  6. 6

    Perez is next, ain't he?



  7. 7

    He is saying something untrue. What is wrong with the man trying to stop that from happening? No, there is nothing wrong with being gay but if you aren't there is nothing wrong with wanting the correct information out there.



  8. 8

    Hmm…is that why you "dance around" the subject when you insinuate people's sexual orientation in posts? Because most of the time you don't know what your talking about Perez?
    And I'm sure he isn't suing just because the "troll" said he's gay. It's called invasion of privacy… among other hacking laws…



  9. 9

    My Perezcious had his solicitor look into suing someone for allleging that the Perezcious was "straight", but unfortunately, noone has ever made that claim about the Perezcious. The solicitor did find a few suggestions that the Perezcious was a eunuch, but determined that these were not actionable (for undisclosed reasons).



  10. 10

    It's still a nuisance… I'd get ticked off and annoyed by it, too… regardless of what they were saying of me… negative or otherwise. It's not the "gay" part I'm sure he's frustrated with. If someone continually hacked into a wikapedia page about Perez and wrote things, he'd sue in an instant because he's sue-happy. He thinks everything against him is unfair, but has the nerve to mock and joke about others doing the same… haha. That's rich.



  11. 11

    I love him! I had the biggest crush on him after office space. total BF material. Too bad he's waaaaaaaay older than me and married. lol.



  12. 12

    it shouldn't be ok to spread false information about people. period.



  13. 13

    Oh yeah, BTW being called gay when you are not is really hurtful and IS an invasion of privacy. Just because YOU are okay with being called gay (and you should be proud of that), a straight, married man wouldn't be comfortable with that accusation. I'd be pissed if anyone called me a lez on the internet, especially if my stats on wikipedia were not true.



  14. 14

    Anytime people spill untruths about others there is damage done.

    Wiki is a highly used website to gain knowledge of particular people, a lot of time celebrities, by those who would like to know more about them - including the staus of their personal lives.
    I'm surprised this website would use the phrase "this is just the internet". Without the internet, your empire would cease. Of course you know the power of the internet. How silly of you to try that line on me.



  15. 15

    I agree with court1178.

    Perez, you of all people know the power of the internet. Making the statement, "It's just the internet, y'all" is just ignorant on your part. You don't seem dumb so don't act it.



  16. 16

    I KNOW THEY KEEP ON CHANGING DICK NOSED GAGAS WIKIPEDIA TOO THEY WROTE THAT HE'S A WOMAN WHEN HES A MAN GOSH HE MUST BE BUMMED.



  17. 17

    if i was him I'd publish his name or go take care of it myself as soon as i found out who it was…it would be a great to go screw up a hacker or a blogger for that matter.. remember..violence is ALWAYS the answer



  18. 18

    Nobody wants lies spread around about them.

    If somebody hacked a gay celebrity's page and insinuated he was straight, and the celebrity fought back, Perez would applaud the guy.

    But a hetero who wants to set the record "straight"? Perez thinks he's overreacting. Somebody's got a double standard.



  19. 19

    well, perez…you've made a living off of "just the internet" haven't you? would you have been able to hawk 2 books w/out it? & i agree w/ what others have said…if people are saying something false about you, wouldn't you want to set the record straight - no pun intended? you know, to many being gay seems unnatural - shoving your bits someplace that God intended to be an exit makes some people uneasy. God intended for us to procreate…i'm not a homophobe either….but i don't need it shoved in my face every chance either….anymore than you want to hear straight people go on & on about being straight, etc. he has a right to clear this issue and shouldn't be dogged for it just because he doesn't want to be associated w/ being GASP, gay! use some common sense, mario!



  20. 20

    Re: blinkie – If that was the case, Perez would be serving a life sentence.



  21. 21

    That should be a lesson to you, Perez. I don't think I need to spell it out for you since you're the one who invented that game. It's called defamation of character.



  22. 22

    BELIEVE IT OR NOT PEREZ NOT EVERYONE WANTS TO BE GAY OR BE SEEN AS GAY. HE DOESN'T HAVE TO THINK ITS SOMETHING WRONG (LIKE YOU'RE IMPLYING) TO NOT WANT PEOPLE TO THINK THAT HE IS. I WOULDN'T WANT ANYONE SPREADING LIES ABOUT ME OR SAYING THAT I WAS A LESBIAN EITHER AND I WOULD DO WHAT I COULD TO STOP THAT PERSON. BEING CALLED GAY WHEN YOU'RE NOT IS NOT COOL. AND ON ANOTHER NOTE, SO IS TRYING TO OUT PEOPLE LIKE YOU USUALLY DO. INVASION OF PRIVACY. YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND THAT WHEN PEOPLE ARE GAY THEY WANT TO COME OUT ON THEIR OWN TIME AND DON'T NEED YOUR FAT ASS TRYING TO DICTATE THEIR LIFE FOR YOUR AGENDA. ITS THEIR STORY TO TELL NOT YOURS FATASS.



  23. 23

    perez, you are a dumbass. people have lost jobs and relationships have ended because of someone being gay. this could hurt his relationship with his wife or could very well cost him acting jobs in the future. i don't blame him for being pissed. i would be, too.



  24. 24

    That troll sounds exactly like you douchebag.



  25. 25

    He should take action. There is nothing wrong with being gay. But would anyone want some saying something about them that is not true! It is actually not funny, if anything it is annoying. Rosemarie Dewitt is cute and a pretty good actress.



  26. 26

    Of course the fact that he's being harassed by this piece of shit doesn't bother you in the least b/c the harasser is saying he's gay…which is just fine. God you're such an asshole.



  27. 27

    Proving once again that it is still considered shameful and abnormal to be gay in 2009.



  28. 28

    Wait. I have the same name as a celebrity, that doesn't mean he can sue me. Fucking POS I hope his case gets thrown out of court. He doesn't own a name that others cant have.



  29. 29

    you forgot to mention that the troll has created 2 FB accounts pretending to be him and his so called *lover*



  30. 30

    Whats wrong with that Perez? You sued someone for touching your face? Step off you gay soap box, not everyone has to have the same opinion as you Perez. At least he doesnt call suicidal girls ugly, betcha feel good about that one fucktard.



  31. 31

    He is clearly not gay. I mean, look at those mom jeans.



  32. 32

    i think it was stupid to file a lawsuit about it…did anyone hear anything about ron livingston being called gay on wiki before he sued the guy? ya…me neither…



  33. 33

    Re: pureface – YES, I'M SURE THERE ARE A LOT OF RON LIVINGSTONS WHO ACTS ON OFFICE SPACE AND IS MARRIED TO A WOMAN NAME ROSEMARIE DEWITT. =/ ITS NOT ABOUT THE NAME, MORON. ITS THE WIKI THAT MENTIONS HIM, HIS CAREER, HIS MARRIAGE AND HIS SEXUALITY ALONG WITH TWO FALSE FACE BOOK PAGES OF THE SAME MENTIONING THE SAME THING WITH POSTS BETWEEN HIM AND HIS SO CALLED LOVER. ITS HARASSMENT, DEFAMATION OF CHARACTER AND HACKING.



  34. 34

    good for him. there should be consequences for that kind of ridiculous slander.



  35. 35

    here we go again…burger and his darn insecurities! ;)

    OLD NEWS PEREZ

    god you're always waaaay behind the other blogs



  37. 37

    Re: JohnnyD

    Why do consider it shameful to be gay, and how does this "prove" it? There's nothing shameful in being gay, but there is shame in lying and spreading false information.



  38. 38

    Re: pureface

    His face is on the pages in question, not just his name.



  39. 39

    I dont blame him at all. Im glad he is taking steps to fix this. Just cuz you think its NO BIGGIE Perez to some folks being called Gay is not for them. So maybe YOU CALM DOWN.

  40. slaq says – reply to this


    40

    WOW! So YOU would be fine with it if someone was trying hard to make it seem like you were living a lie and were actually straight, even going so far as to name fictional girlfriends and create online "lives" for them to make them seem legit? Even though your ENTIRE public persona is based on you being a homosexual? No problem there for you? Right…you'd totally sue, as well!!



  41. 41

    Carrie Bradshaw started the "gay" rumor because he broke up with her on a post-it. ;-)



  42. 42

    Perez, not everything that has to do with gay, or not admitting to be gay, or being straight and not wanting to be presumed gay, the world doesn't revolve around gay, you make too big a deal and get too offended if someone isn't into the bumdarts…hey, some of us are straight around here.



  43. 43

    Well i would be pretty fucking pissed if someone went as far as making a fake profile about me and making people think im gay when i'm really not. You need to remind yourself to stop being so selfish, and think just because YOU'RE comfortable being gay, does not mean that others are comfortable with it, especially when they're not gay to begin with.

    44

    sounds like Ron knows its not okay to be gay.



  45. 45

    "Just the internet?" The internet is massive, it's where most people get their info now for better or worse and hello it launched your career. The internet is not a little thing and it's annoying when you have to deal with an obsessive person doing crazy things. There is nothing wrong with being gay, but there is something wrong with writing false things about people and creating fake identities.
    Perez, why do you have to be so sensitive?



  46. 46

    I'd be pissed, too. Not because of the gay thing, but because it says he's in a relationship with someone other than his wife!



  47. 47

    he has a right to be pissed about this. it's exactly what he's filing suit for: libel and invasion of privacy.



  48. 48

    who is he?



  49. 49

    So, How many websites/people is he going to try & sue? Perez maybe you'll be next haha. Don't read about yourself online Ron!



  50. 50

    As usual, Perez misses the point. This is not about someone not wanting to be labeled as gay. This is about someone being labeled as something/someone that they are not, invasion of privacy, a matter of reputation since he is married to someone, etc. Get a clue, idiot.



  51. 51

    PEREZ GETS ATTACKED EVERY FREAKIN DAY. EXCEPT IN MARIO'S CASE ALL ATTACKS ARE TRUE. SOMETIMES PEREZ GETS SMACKED UPSIDE THE HEAD RE: BEP'S ROAD MGR. THAT'S WHY HE SO CALM AT TAKING CRITICISM THESE DAYS AS WELL AS DISSING IT OUT. THE TRUTH!!



  52. 52

    Office Space? How about Band of Brothers?
    Jesus….



  53. 53

    Not everyone wants to be associated with your degenerate lifestyle, pig.



  54. 54

    oh man who cares seriously! and, newsflash just because ur married or have a girlfriend doesnt mean u still cant like the same sex from time to time. its a bi world so get use to it! Perez i luv ur site:)



  55. 55

    It's not about being labeled homosexual. It's about messing around with someone's identity, and stalking. You're really reaching for some of this stuff, today.



  56. 56

    it may sound silly.. but i hate this guy since SEx and the city.. when we broke Carrie's heart :(



  57. 57

    You're not Southern. Don't say y'all.



  58. 58

    It's a form of harassment, and it's good that he's taking action. It's not whether that he's being called gay Perez - not everything "against homosexuals" is done with homophobia in mind!!!



  59. 59

    Perez, you're totally missing the point.
    Re: Hodge Podge – lmao I love reading you posts!



  60. 60

    Hey, I'm all about the homos, and I'm sure Ron is too, but I totally get it. I'd be just as mad if someone constantly accused me of being married to a person of the opposite sex, so I don't think it's a homophobic thing.



  61. 61

    That Berger is so uptight!



  62. 62

    wow. people really have nothing better to do



  63. 63

    In other news, the entire Gay Community is suing Perez for defamation of character by claiming to be one of them

    OMG BURGER IS SOOOOOO GAY!



  66. 66

    I cant' Im sorry Dont hate me! Paper cover rock bitches



  67. 67

    Name withheld? Is it "Perez Hilton?" You are such an asshole for outing Meredith Baxter!



  68. 68

    He's gay.



  69. 69

    I read it on a post-it-note that Berger is so gay so I believe it.



  70. 70

    How would you feel if someone was insisting you were straight?



  71. 71

    i'm sorry, he was checking out his own wikipedia page your trying to tell me?



  72. 72

    Being with William Burroughs would seem like a pretty good deal…



  73. 73

    Don't be a hypocrite, Perez! You want to out all the gays, but when someone wants to out themselves as straight, it's "just the internet"?

    Can't have it both ways!



  74. 74

    I don't like he has a problem with being called gay, i think its the issue that people are spreading lies about his image which is totally understandable.



  75. 75

    I'm a big homo and I think Livingston is doing the right thing. AND in the process he refreshes our mind of he is.



  76. 76

    I'm a big homo and I think Livingston is doing the right thing. AND in the process he refreshes our mind of who he is.



  77. 77

    Sue the bastard Ron!!

    The troll is doing this to hurt Ron Livingston - of course he should stop it.

    I would hate to be accused of being straight!!



  78. 78

    Troll's name should most definitely NOT be withheld.



  79. 79

    Don't give me that oh so casual attitude about that issue Perez. You know you would be going ape-shit bat crazy if someone had posted constantly that you were straight and in a relationship with a woman. It's still fraud and obviously this troller has to be sued to stop. HE'S the one who should have to pay for that kind of harrassment. And I don't even watch office Space but I can understand his perspective. Obviously you don't.



  80. 80

    there's nothing wrong with being gay, but there is something wrong with constantly being called something you're not. its "just" the internet? isnt that how you've made your 1000's of dollars? its why we all know your face! the guy has one great claim to fame (it IS a great one!) and someone's out there trying to mess with him? the real question is why??



  81. 81

    fuck i hate ppl that sue over being called gay

    i find usually theyre homophobes or closet cases - hello jason donavan -

    what a dickhead



  82. 82

    I don't blame him at all. The person is telling lies about him and he should stop. I think Ron's response is appropriate.

  83. @v@ says – reply to this


    83

    It's libel. The truth matters to some people more than pacifying. He wants to be represented as who is actually is.



  84. 84

    I emphatically agree with MissKay!! "I'm surprised this website would use the phrase "this is just the internet". Without the internet, your empire would cease. Of course you know the power of the internet. How silly of you to try that line on me."
