Perez Hilton Vs. Will.i.Am-Fight

Last night’s Much Music Video Awards were great, but the real action was after the award show. Internet blogger Chris Crocker Perez Hilton got in a fight with Black Eyed Peas member, Will.i.Am.

Hilton, whose real name is Mario Lavandeira, complained about the incident on the microblogging site Twitter. He tweeted at 4 a.m.: "I am bleeding. Please, I need to file a police report. No joke."

Hilton, who is openly gay, said in interview with The Associated Press that he called will.i.am a "faggot," a gay slur, inside the club after the musician told the blogger not to write about his band on his Web site.

"He was like 'You need to respect me.' He was in my face. He was obviously trying to intimidate me and scare me," Hilton said. "I was like 'I don't need to respect you. I don't respect you and I did say this, and I knew that it would be the worst thing I could possibly say to him because he was acting the way he was. I said 'You know what, I don't respect you and you're gay and stop being such a faggot.'"

Will.i.am said in a video posting on dipdive.com that he came to Hilton with respect and was called a "faggot."

Hilton, who was at the club with Lady Gaga, said he then left the club and was punched from behind. The pop stars and the blogger were among celebrities in Toronto for the MuchMusic Video Awards on Sunday night.

A spokeswoman for the Black Eyed Peas declined comment.

 

Both Will.i.Am and Perez posted video responses after the incident, but as usual Perez Hilton.com does not allow video embedding. You can view Perez’s response here, and watch Will.i.Am’s response bellow:

 

 

As far as my personal response: I use to wonder why people hated Perez so much. But I believe now I understand. Calling someone a faggot, Perez, is just a fucked up thing to do. You said you knew it would get him upset, what the hell? It is offensive to our community for you to go around using the “faggot” word. How do you expect others to not use the word if we do? I don’t think you should have been attacked, but your response video comes of a little bit Chris Crockerish and just plain bitchy.

 

Update: Will.i.Am has released a new video where he says he did not attack Perez. You can see it HERE.
