    lesbian hater.



  2. 2

    For your information SUICIDE in TEENS…actually with adults too has been happening for ever! It just so happens that people (media like you) is beginning to recognize it.



  3. 3

    terrible :(



  4. 4

    i bet you there is some crazy religious person out there smiling today its GOD WILL you know god doesn't like gays :-/

    Perez, Yes you NEED to stop posting names becuase it is only going to make it worse you are helping to make this a trend



  6. 6

    Fuck you Perez. You like to cry equal rights, and about how the world would be a better place without all the hate, yet 90% of your site is about hating on people for things they do, so wtf makes you so different from the people that pushed these kids into suicide. I know you're trying to make some money off of what little fame you have, but at the end of the day you have to live with what you do. I think it's time you take a look in the mirror and stop judging people if you (and gays) don't want to be judged yourself.



  7. 7

    Eh things like this happen, why are they getting attention all of the sudden because they are gay? High School makes everybody suicidal, it's an evil time in life.



  8. 8

    So your sister has been reading the comment sections!



  9. 9

    This is rediculous. It's 2010 for crying out loud! You know what's behind this, closed-minded republican politicians that don't vote to let gay and lesbian couples get married. They're literally teaching citizens it's wrong to be gay, and parents listen to that and they teach that message to their kids.

    It's just really sad. People have to realize that being gay exists and people can't help it. It's not like I can all of a sudden say, I'm gay! It's not a mental disabllity like they used to say it was. They say that God says it's a sin to be gay, then why the hell does it exist? Hopefully other kids can learn from this. There's always a place they can go to for help.



  10. 10

    stop listing the names other kids might be seeing this as "their 15 min or famous" sounds ridiculous but maybe true.



  11. 11

    Really Perez? You lecturing people on bullying? It's tragic that these suicides have been happening and that bullies made life unbearable for these kids, but you help make that bullying culture. You make it ok to call people fat and ugly, you make it cool. Remember making fun of Alexa Ray Joel publicly on this site and calling her ugly? Remember when she attempted suicide months later? Bullying has to stop, but God knows none of us needs a lecture from you on it.



  12. 12

    Stop blaming Perez. He posts these names to let people know that these are real people. Gay, straight it doesnt matter these are young people ending their lives because they dont feel worthy. NO ONE should feel this way. Hopefully people will begin to look for signs and children will stop hurting themselves. I come from a town were suicide was a growing thing over the past few years and we are lucky enough that over the past 2 the suicide rate has gone down. Lets try and love people and not hate. There is help out there and there is someone willing to listen. These young people havent even had the opertunity to live. Lets help them and give them reasons to! LOVE is all they want



  13. 13

    I wonder how many of them were on drugs such as adderall.



  14. 14

    um did i miss something..nothing in the massachusetts teens death mentioned him being gay….where are you getting that info from?



  15. 15

    teen suicide has been going on for a long time..it seems like that since the rash of gay suicides have been going on now you are interested???



  16. 16

    more action and less media coverage is what we need.



  17. 17

    Re: bubbabyte – its human nature to judge people. but bullying someone because of who they are as a person is different then making fun of someones fashion fail on the red carpet. He puts this out there to spread the word and he's trying to help. It's a very serious issue and it obviously hits close to home.



  18. 18

    lol wut … there are as many young boys killing themselves every week, it's just that you are paying attention to it this week piggy



  19. 19

    This sadly happens every week, this is not abnormal… media is just now recognizing and finally giving it attention. THIS IS NOTHING NEW. and bubbabyte has a great point…. Perez how does this gossip site of yours differ from these bullies?



  20. 20

    Do anything? Stop posting names. Sensationalizing such news stories will always bring on a wave of trend. This happens with suicides, murders, rapes, anything. I'm not saying these things should not be reported and of course addressed but there is a responsible way to do so.



  21. 21

    So sad. Open your eyes people; just because of sexual orientation you are no more or less human. Suck it up and let everyone live they're lives. F*CK THE BULLIES! DON'T LET THEM WIN!



  22. 22

    You are promoting the fact that if you are gay and commit suicide that you will get to be famous by being on your site. By the way how many staight kids have commited suicide in the same time period? Oh I forgot you only care about the Gays straight kids do not matter to you.



  23. 23

    If Perez really wanted to help prevent this from happening, he would stop posting it on his website.

    There's a trend known as the copycat effect whereby after a suicide is published in the media, there is in increase of suicides in its wake. That's why there are media bans on subway and bridge jumping suicides and it explains why there has been an increase in suicides over the past few weeks. For more info check out the 2003 article by Dr. Stack, "Media coverage as a risk factor in suicide", published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health.

    What's happening to these youth is absolutely horrible and endless support should be provided to people who need help. But by covering the suicides you may be inspiring more youth to choose the same fate and furthering the trend.



  24. 24

    If you want to do something POSITIVE for the gay community,for once,I think you should KEEP writing these stories! Gay people,especially the young need all the support we can get.



  25. 25

    Its sad that these kids are taking their lives. Sometimes it's better to listen to the bible and not be damned to hell. You exploiting it doesn't make it any better. Will-I-Am's manager didn't hit you hard enough I dont think. All the little boys and men you put hearts around their p*nis and turn gayness into normal life is disgusting. How many times do you need to get beat up by someone to realize what you are doing?



  26. 26

    Re: BallinHater – Fuck you,you twisted ass hole! Karma's a bitch…beware!



  27. 27

    Good, Perez, you need to stop posting on this. While I know it is in no way your intention, the nature of your website glamorizes this tragic situation. The media attention and outpouring of love for these lost kids might seem very appealing to someone who is bullied to the point of hopelessness.



  28. 28

    Prez, I used to think you were an asshole. I don't think you are an asshole anymore. I think you are a bona fide, legitimate lunatic. I wish you were just an asshole because then we may be able to fix it. You go off on this big anti-bully campaign, but you have already bullied several people on your site today. What the hell is wrong with you. This bullying epidemic is a horrible situation. You are not doing it any favors. Stay out of it.



  29. 29

    Re: April 20th
    how do you always get on first and we get it I think - are you a lesbian ? no disrepect - I'm cool w/that

    30

    WOW, I had message #1 complaining about all of the gay stories and not enough celebrity stories and an hour later my message disappeared. I didn't realize that perez filtered out the messages that he doesn't agree with.



  31. 31

    i'm so saddened to hear about these poor boys… my younger brother recently came out of the closet as a junior in high school. i would not know what to do if anything happened to him. we need to let any gay youth know that there are plenty of people to talk to if they are feeling confused or hurt.
    keep spreading the hope, perez!



  32. 32

    OK Perez. Here's a question. How is the bullying of these teens because they are gay any different from the bullying you do to people like Kristen Stewart, Misha and others? Your biases and bullying are just as bad, if not worse as they are in a very public forum. You have no credibility to be speaking out against bullying sir.



  33. 33

    Re: BallinHater – wtf is wrong with you?!



  34. 34

    This whole issue is so sad. Straight, gay, black, white, asian, hispanic whatever orientation or ethnicity this is a huge problem. People need to open their eyes and look deeper into what is going on beside the issue of the person being gay! If you like it or you don't you have to deal with it, humans are going to be humans, no one tells you how to run your "straight" lifestyle so no one should be telling the gays how to run theirs. The last time I checked WE (GAY or STRAIGHT) are all on this earth for one reason, to enjoy OUR lives and to make OURSELVES happy!!! I understand everyone has their own opinion on this subject like everything else in life and that does not make us right in everyone else's eyes except our own and to people who feel the same way.

    It's 2010 people… we need to wake up and live OUR lives while others live THEIRS!!!

    Ok, I'm on crack then, bc you said you weren't going to post their names!! Perez wtf is WRONG with you!

    I agree this is a serious issue but you're just making it worse… oh and throwing the whole "gay or straight" tag at the top is insulting - we're not dumb, we all know the only reason you wrote that is from all the comments you're receiving about neglecting the rest of the population who are NOT gay.

    My prayers are with the families, but as far as you're concerned Perez, you make me sick.



  36. 36

    Re: BallinHater
    you are one sick mother fucker.
    I hope you have fun burning in hell.



  37. 37

    yes perez is a hypocritical pig people, but can we look at the bigger picture here?
    GAY TEEENS ARE KILLING THEMSELVES BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE TELLING THESE KIDS THEY DON'T BELONG. as a gay teen myself, I CAN NOT STAND THAT THIS IS HAPPPENING!



  38. 38

    i feel really bad but we gotta do sonething tyo stop this

    Re: eyeh8twilight
    Hey asshole, someone's political affiliation doesn't drive someone to suicide. It's a choice a person makes themselves, albeit a horrible choice - but you don't blame politics for that. That's like saying you broke a nail bc Green Peace didn't like you. You're worse than Perez.



  41. 41

    Re: bubbabyte – look you wanna cone and post that he has hate wbsite lets whats the media about hello have you been to the store what does media do. this is not the problem among teens its called bullie so get it right and starting popping off at the real situation!!!!!



  42. 42

    Re: eyeh8twilight – Your president is a democrat and will not put a vote forward to allow gays and lesbians get married. Read a book, you could learn alot.



  43. 43

    mario: read the posts in related articles! You are one of the biggest bullies on the face of the planet! If you mean that action must be taken, put your money where your mouth is and stop the bullying, name-calling and degrading talk!
    Lead by example!



  44. 44

    America the land of the free and the liberal nation. Oh please! It's crazy with all that is spouted, that actually the USA is one of the most backward when it comes to equality and equal rights! Compared to Europe, in some states of the US, it can appear that your on an equal par with some of the terror nations that still rest on archaic and authoritative notions about people who are different.

    Celebrity Juice has become Gay Juice. I've been reading more articles about gay celebs, coming out celebs, gay issues like teen gay suicide and prop 8. I feel really sad for those bullied gay teens who committed suicide but I think Perez should start a gay website and put all the gay articles there. Just sayin.



  46. 46

    i feel the need to comment on this. suicide happens everyday to a wide range of people. adults teens children who are straight gay bisexual whatever. it happens everyday.
    please stop reporting it. im sure there are many straight boys and girls who have been bullied and took their lives because of it. there is not only gay men who are killing themselves.
    its really annoying to see you only reporting on one sex and one sexual orientation. MANY KIDS ARE BULLIED TO DEATH. maybe you should be taking a stand against bullying in every way. not just for gay men. bullying happens to everyone. stop reporting on it. suicide is more common then what your reporting. its really not a big shock. take a stand against bullying but open it up to everyone. there are alot of kids going through it.



  47. 47

    umm i'm sorry if people think that just because suicide has been happening since a long time, you don't have to worry about it. That is not a reason to not step up and make a difference, to reach out to those who don't feel listened and understood. It is NEVER too late for saving good souls from wrong choices.

  49. 49

    it's ridiculous that people are coming on here saying its ok for people to commit suicide. YOU are part of this problem. And yes just because this problem has been around forever doesn't mean we shouldn't do everything in our power now to stop it. Great job Perez, your'e doing a great thing with this It gets better campaign. Even if it makes the difference for one person, 1 life is most definately worth saving.



  50. 50

    Are you serious Perez??? You know suicide isn't actually like a new thing. A few people at my high school committed suicide almost all four years. You are not going to stop people from killing themselves old or young. Plus, what do you think the government can do about people killing themselves?? You're so stupid, it seems like you just discovered what suicide was about two weeks ago and you are like stunned that it is happening. Additionally, everyone gets bullied or made fun of in elementary/middle/high school, most of us just react by growing up and getting over it, not by killing ourselves.

    I just wanted to post this. If anyone is in the Windsor Ontario region, The Pride Committee ow Windsor is working with Windsor Regional Hospital to raise awareness on Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender youth, particularly on Youth "coming out". They are holding the first annual Rainbow Run. A 5K run/walk for anyone who is GLBT or who knows or wants to support a friend or family member that is. The website is www.rainbowrunwindsor.com for details. If you are not in this reagion, speak to your local Pride Committee for info on how you can start something similar in your area

    Re: JustCata
    I agree why all the hate from this person ? closet case?



  54. 54

    mario
    first of all, this goes on all the time, if you really want to do something, lead by example. then get organized, dont sit there writing crap about everyone, then demand bullying stop, you are the worst offender
    to those that choose to make hateful comments in this post, pick another one, your insensitivity is only highlighting your lack of intelligence



  55. 55

    So! Perez is waking up and realizing that kids kill themselves… It's nothing new, you know and it happens to all kind of kids, not just gay kids. Now that you see the consequences, how about you reflect upon the causes… You, Perez, promote hate and bullying. Kids who read your blog LEARN from you that it's OK to be mean to others. And when concerned adults like myself come here to say that we are not ok with this, we are labeled "haters". Well yes, I do hate what you promote, Perez. When are you gonna get that you are part of the problem?

    Re: netopia – This is almost EXACTLY what I said and the message was taken off within an hour of posting it



  57. 57

    While I do agree that action does need to be taken in regard to the recent suicides, I think we have lost sight of where we need to start to prevent such tragedies. I am in no way saying that bullying and cyber bullying are not big problems worldwide, but that is a broader issue that needs to be addressed if we are to successfully deal with the problems at hand.



  58. 58

    Cont…
    As a society, we should be looking at violence in the media and impact that reality TV seems to have. I just watched the fight between Jersey Shore's Snooki and Angelina and was absolutely disgusted. First off, there is a difference between being painfully honest and being an honest bully. The Jersey Shore clip shows Snooki telling Angelina that no one likes her (which were the same words she spoke to the Situation while at a fancy dinner).To me, it seemed a bit unnecessary to say this to Angelina (Angelina is no angel either), but what really got to me was the physical altercation that occurred moments later. Snooki and Angelina are punching each other, pulling each other's hair…etc. and not one person steps in.



  59. 59

    Cont…
    In fact when the girls go for round two, we see other castmates encouraging the girls to keep fighting with one castmate actually moving a table-not to step in and help, but to give Snooki and Angelina more room to fight. Am I missing something here? It was only toward the end of the fight that a castmate came in and separated the girls. I remember watching past seasons of Real World-when roommates got physical, MTV sent either or one or both brawlers packing. I understand that with reality TV the "fourth wall (cameramen, etc.)" the general rule is not to step in. However, it appalls me that no one from the fourth wall stepped in when it was clearly evident that the castmates were not going to. We need to ask ourselves what message does this send to viewers when the violence is glorified? We have turned into a society that is so desensitized to violence, that we have actually begun to reward it.



  60. 60

    We praise those who speak their mind, but do nothing when the words are out of line. As I previously said, I am not saying that bullying and cyber bullying should be ignored, rather we cannot tackle these issues until we correct the way that we deal with the broader scope of glorifying violence with no consequences (were Angelina and Snooki punished?). I would also like to add that I do believe that violence does have a place, but when we do not show the realistic outcomes, we essentially send the message that it's OK to maliciously hurt another. We cannot eradicate cyber bullying and general bullying until we tackle both verbal and physical violence.

    HOW ABOUT MAYBE HOLDING OFF ON OUTING PEOPLE AND DRAWING CUM ON GUYS FACES AND MAKING IT LOOK FUNNY AND EASY TO MAKE FUN OF…OR KILL YOURSELF



  62. 62

    people commit suicide everyday perez…not just gays, how bout you give a shit about all the other people as well…
    Gays don't rule the world…as much as i'm sure you'd like that…its not true…deal with it..
    seeing that they commit suicide doesn't make me sad, because people do this EVERYDAY…its life, deal with it…
    how bout you give a shit about the people who die from disease or starvation more?



  63. 63

    Perez, this is like the "Pot Calling the Kettle Black"! You bully people EVERYDAY on your site. How is your site any different from what these kids are going through? Don't you think these celebrities get hurt by what you put on your site? Practice what you preach!!!!!

  64. chewi says – reply to this


    64

    I find it ironic that the majority of these situations are caused in part by other people attempting to 'out' the victim before the victim is ready to be 'outed' (whether by bullying, videocams, etc.)

    Yet, you attempt to do this regularly to the celebrity community, many of whom aren't ready to come out of the closet either. In fact, you do this to people you only THINK are gay - many of whom may, in fact, not be.

    Therefore, according to my logic, you are NO DIFFERENT THAN THE PERPETRATORS who instigate this wave of suicides. You, Perez, are a hypocrite - and you lead these perpetrators by example. Indirectly, YOU play a part in this trend. So heed your own advice - and STOP IT.

  68. 68

    I am a parent (my kid's not gay, but that's not the point) and I am alarmed. I live nearby EO Green Middle School where Larry King was murdered by his classmate. This has got to STOP. There are lots of resources for kids thinking about suicide, but not so many resources for kids who are bullies who need help changing their behavior. What can I do as a parent to urge my school district to pay attention to this problem? There's the "Stomp Out Bullying" Campaign, but it focuses on the kid being bullied . There are no resources that I am aware of that will assist a kid who is a bully get the help he/she needs to change their behavior. What can I do? I want to these kids who perpetrate this bullying get the help they need to change their ways. What's out there for them? Until we treat the problem, there can be no solution. Does anyone know of any resources for the bullies to get counseling?



  69. 69

    Lets make something real clear here!

    Committing suicide because of bullying is letting THEM win!
    Don't EVER think giving into ones hateful comments is ever going to change anything.
    Stay alive, fight for equality!
    People will never change if you don't!



  70. 70

    every suicide is one to much. i just read that mike hucknall's cousin hanged himself because he was mobbed in school. and he was only TEN years old.how sad is that?



  71. 71

    Very sad- although I am irritated that JUST the gays are getting the press for the suicides. There are suicides for every orientiation- and bullying is rampant everywhere. I had to deal with my 4 year old punched in the face in front of me in pre-school, then in kindergarten the same kid threatened her with a knife to "slice her down the middle and cut her nto little pieces" and when he missed because she leaned back he stabbed at her with a metal fork toward the chest 8 or 9 times, making contact twice. Thankfully she leaned back as far as she could or he would have gotten her with the metal knife and more with the fork. THe school did NOTHING. (although they did have the police throw me out for observing the lunch period!) This is KINDERGARTEN.



  72. 72

    Good, less homo's yay! We are put on this earth to procreate and they are doing society a favor.



  73. 73

    Action MUST be taken? I agree that these suicides are tragic, but what action would you suggest to prevent further suicides? What's to be done? Who should do what? A frightening number of teenagers commit suicide each year. I think the real question is, why is the suicide rate so much higher today than a decade ago? Find that driver, and then maybe we'll be able to get our arms around this problem.



  74. 74

    yeah now people might say, what a good time to die - my name will be posted for millions to see that would be more exciting than living this shit anymore……..

    perez, i rllly love what you said on CNN about gays

    im straight but i dont like ppl are prejudice toward the gays.

    i have some respect for what you said there



  77. 77

    2 more teenage suicides the past week or so at Brentsville High School in Virginia. Both Seniors. Too Sad.



  78. 78

    I don't think this is any more prevalent than before. According to stats ( roughly ) a teenager commits suicide every 100 minutes in this country. You are just now publicizing it. Not sure if media attention will make things any worse or better??



  79. 79

    Sadly the media just happen to latch onto this problem this week and are acting like they just uncovered a new story. Hello where has the media been with this problem years ago. Glad to see it finally see get the issue some coverage but people have been trying to bring this issue to light for a long time.



  80. 80

    Someone in my school committed suicide a few weeks ago why aren't you saying anything about that? Oh yeah he was straight, he must not matter!!! Bitch!!!

    Re: fungusfarm
    You are disgusting.
    We aren't made just to "procreate". Why don't you start spending your time doing something decent for this world, fucking around like a rabbit making deformed clones of youself. This earth has way too many assholes on it as it is.
    Suicide is SAD, no matter whom it happens too, or for what reason. To joke about someone's death, like you do…….should send you straight to HELL



  82. 82

    I think Perez is doing a good thing.
    I've tried to commit suicide also for bullying (not of the gay kind) but I still got it so bad I literally did not want to live anymore to the point I was crying myself alseep thinking about the next day, but his just trying to raise awareness and his doing good. Yes lots of teens die every week so why are you getting mad at Perez for posting it at least his trying to take action! I'm not going to try and commit suicide so I can get my 15 minutes of fame you need to understand for many people in physcological problems and I'm happy at Perez raising awareness and trying to get this sorted out. We need media to reconize this or the problem will just get worst. My school has a support centre for teens who have suicidal thoughts or anything but many places don't so it's things like this what raise awareness.
    I'm pro Perez doing this.

    Teen suicide has always been a social problem. It's not just limited to teens, but teens are the ones who really feel perceived social slights as they're newly hormonal and thus not quite emotionally controlled yet, and also their brains aren't fully formed yet. Many teens don't yet have perspective which comes with fuller life experience. If things aren't good in their life, I advise them to make a change. Tell a few friends and they'll surround you if you let them know what's been happening. Seek out the guidance counselor. Change schools if you hate it and nothing else has worked. Change it up.

    What's really sad is that this kind of bullying and suicide has been going on *forever* and you, celebs, and the media are now all of sudden starting to acknowledge it. And what about kids who get bullied because of their skin color, their religion, or special needs kids, and kids who get bullied in general? Everything is so gay gay gay with you. Bullying in ANY shape or form is wrong and should be put to an end. Peace is and should be for everyone. I love how right after you posted this and you were on your anti-bully stance, you went right back to trashing others and being the bully that you are. Take a dose of your own advice and put your words into a effect on your life! That's the ONLY way to make a difference.

    PEREZ -

    Oh, this sucks big-time. If there was any bullying involved that caused these kids to kill themselves, then I think the bullies should be tracked down and charged with criminally negligent homicide.

    that's right. the more it is in the news, the more kids will think its ok to commit suicide

    Mario! You are a colostomy. Seriously, a steaming pile of shit is what you are. You are so fabulously ignorant to what you do every day. What about "mushy"? Do you not consider that bullying? Kirsten Stewart? Do you bully her because of something legitimate or is it because she is a goddamn sensation and actually makes, oh idk more than the 60k you pull in a year off this highschool bullshit. Lead by example.

    For the record, the beginning of this post says GAY OR STRAIGHT. So to all of you who cannot read, it is correct that no article reports the boy from Massachusetts being gay, because he was in fact straight. I believe the point of this was to bring light to the alarming number of teens suicide, regardless of sexual orientation. I am from the same town as this boy and his suicide was ultimately the result of being very distraught over recently breaking up with his girlfriend. I don't believe that bullying was a factor at all in this case, he had a history of depression and the break-up only made it worse.

    How old they are, it doesn't matter, what they are, lesbian or gay or straight, It doesn't matter, what race or religion, either, from where? less.. We are talking about a human beeing!! No one has the right to either take their live, or some one else to take their lives!! Every one has the right to live and make it worth while for them!! Doesn't everybody deserves to be happy?? What if each of us are looking at us in the mirror, and thinking… what if we where them, what if we where in that live of them, because, we where lucky not to be born in that life, but could have been, and then??? how you would have responded then? THINK ABOUT IT !! P.S.: maybe islam or osama should think the same way…
