Perez Hilton now regrets calling Will.I.Am a "fag," even though he got deeply offended this morning at the suggestion he shouldn't have done that. The gossip blogger basically has no idea what he's saying at this point.
He was a gay equality advocate on Miss USA, but then he was calling Will.I.Am "gay" like it was an insult in a nightclub. He did so to get under the singer's skin, but then when he did, successfully, get under his skin he got very upset at the results, even though he had thought the man a "thug" before pushing his buttons so he had to imagine it might get physical.
Now Hilton's trying to figure out if he's sorry or not. At the moment, the answer is, "Um, sort of:"
I wanted to hurt him with the word I chose, not anyone else. Unfortunately, the one who got hurt was me and, subsequently, a lot of other people. I wish none of it had happened.
I can't take it back. I did what I thought was best at the moment to stand up for myself in a non-violent yet still assertive way. Clearly, I am not homophobic... I will continue to say things that upset both gay people and straight people... I've come to terms with all my incongruities and am proud of who I am and what I do.
In closing, words can hurt. But words should not provoke someone to violence.
Hilton goes on, since the words "in closing" came less than halfway through his post. In closing, Perez Hilton makes no sense, and all efforts to make sense of him are futile.
