So Perez Hilton is a father. When this news broke a few weeks ago, I mentioned on Facebook that it sat uneasily with me. Not because he’s gay. Not because he’s a single Dad. But because….well, Perez has made his name out of being an arsehole.
Wait, it wasn’t even the arsehole part that bothered me it was this: Perez Hilton has made his name and built his business by being cruel. His brand is synonymous with being crudely nasty and revolting about celebrities and those around them including their children.
He gave celebrities vile nicknames like Sluttyienna (Sienna Miller), Potato Head (Rumer Willis) or Maniston (Jennifer Aniston).
He said this about Miley Cyrus when she was 15:
Miley sure loves lifting up her shirts and skirts. Slut!”
The same year, he said this about celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe:
“Her face is tighter than Hannah Montana’s anus.”
He said this about gay DJ Samantha Ronson:
What An Ugly Bitch! And we don’t mean the dog! Everybody’s favorite fug bitch, saMAN Ronson walked her infinitely cuter pooch, Wednesday in Los Angeles.
He said this about Rumer Willis – who he bullied most weeks for years simply because he found her unattractive:
Rumer Willis… isn’t there surgery where you can shave down your jaw??? We’re sure some trannys have gotten it done to make themselves look more “feminine.” Plastic surgery is not always a bad thing.
Rumer should look into it! And, while she’s there, she might wanna get her nose done too!
Every day for six years, he drew giant penises spraying semen all over female celebrities or appearing to penetrate them. He wrote words like “whore” “fugly” and “tranny” over women’s faces. He outed gay celebrities who did not want to go public with their sexuality. He wrote things about children, like that Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise’s then 9 year old daughter Isabella “looks like a lesbian”. He taunted Alexa Joel (the teenage daughter of Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley) so mercilessly, mocking her appearance, that when she attempted suicide, she said Perez’s cruelty had played a role in driving her to such a desperate place.
