Perez Hilton Honors The Late Tyler Clementi On An Episode Of Zoe Saldana's My Hero

Filed under: Gay Gay GayInspirationZoe SaldanaCharity

no title

The late Tyler Clementi is more than an inspiration to the gay community — his memory acts a reminder to EVERYONE about the importance of kindness, acceptance, and most importantly, love.

To honor Clementi's memory and the work of his foundation, The Tyler Clementi Foundation, we appeared on an episode of Zoe Saldana's, My Hero, an AOL series dedicated to people who've affected the lives of celebrities in profound ways.

You can watch that HERE.

In light of our mission to eliminate bullying from this website AND our life, we chose to honor Tyler, who tragically took his life after his college roommate publicly outed him in a very despicable and humiliating way.

In the episode, we talk extensively about the late college student's foundation, which aims to end online and offline bullying in schools, workplaces, and faith communities.

We feel extremely lucky to be given another opportunity to bring awareness to the bullying crisis and for the chance to remember Tyler's beautiful soul.

Dharun Ravi Denies ALL Responsibility For Tyler Clementi's Death In ABC News Interview

Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal MattersSad Sad

Dharun Ravi has been found guilty for invasion of privacy and bias intimidation in the Tyler Clementi case, in which the gay Rutgers student leaped to his death after discovering Ravi had secretly filmed him being intimate with a man.

We think the jury made the right decision, but in an interview with ABC News, Ravi is saying otherwise. He denies ever bullying his former college roommate, saying:

"He knew that I wasn't trying to intimidate him because he was gay and scare him because he was gay. I think he understood that."

Ugh! That's why he chose to take his own life right? Appalling!

Secretly filming somebody during an intimate moment, whether gay or straight, is NEVER acceptable and can't understand why anyone would do such a thing UNLESS their intention was to cause embarrassment.

Watch Ravi's interview above to see him deny any and all responsibility for his actions as reporter Chris Cuomo asks him point blank questions like, "Do you hate gay people?"

Do U think Ravi deserved the guilty verdict he received?
