Perez Hilton Gets ‘Black Eye’ From ‘Peas’ Manager Over Unsavory Blog Post
Celebrity blogger and overall Hollywood pest Perez Hilton (real name: Mario Lavandeira) was at a video awards show is Toronto Sunday night when he came across The Black Eyed Peas entourage. Will.i.am and Fergie stepped out and angrily confronted the self-proclaimed “Queen of All Media” over bad reviews and unsavory comments made on his popular website. Hilton then retorted by calling Will.i.am a “faggot” and all hell broke loose. The band’s tour manager, Polo Molina, allegedly punched Hilton in the face. He was later charged with assault (full AP story here).
That’s a harsh punishment, isn’t it? Molina only did what every celebrity has been dying to do for years. I wouldn’t be surprised if he becomes some kind of folk hero in Hollywood. Not that I condone violence. Far from it, in fact. But sometimes words can be just as harsh. Hilton kind of got what he deserved. From his outing of celebrities to his publishing of private sex photos, he’s had no problem violating people on his blog whenever it suits him. When you release that much bad energy and dish out that much speculative gossip, you’re going to have to deal with the repercussions. To paraphrase the tag line for My Name is Earl: “Karma is a funny thing”. Posted below is Hilton’s video response to the attack as well as Will.i.am’s video response to Hilton’s video response.
