Perez Hilton Loses ABC Ads, Issues Statement to EW

Perez HiltonThe fallout from celebrity gossip blogger Perez Hilton's Twitter post, allegedly showing a photo of 17-year-old Miley Cyrus exiting a vehicle without underwear, continued today when ABC pulled ads for 'The View' from Hilton's site, according to TV Guide.

Hilton, whose real name is Mario Lavandeira, fired back a short time later with an exclusive statement to EW.com, contending that the photo showed Cyrus fully clothed and citing that it was never posted on his site. He further announced a television appearance for tonight, saying, "I look forward to addressing this and all of the inaccuracies about me being perpetuated when I appear on Joy Behar's HLN show this evening."
Hilton posted
the photo in question to his Twitter account on Monday along with the warning, "If you are easily offended, do NOT click here." The backlash started almost immediately, and Hilton issued a video the next day, stating, "I'm here wearing my fake fur to address a fake controversy that the media is really talking about the last 24 hours."

Hilton asked in the video if people thought Cyrus was stupid enough to go out without underwear, and if people thought he would be stupid enough to post it if she did, also mentioning that other photos from that same set clearly showed Cyrus was fully-clothed.

According to TVGuide.com, no legal action had been taken against Hilton as of Monday afternoon. Cyrus is only 17, which makes her a minor. A photo such as the one Hilton allegedly posted might result in child pornography charges against him.

I don't care what his sexual orientation is, probably is self-sexual as I cannot imagine anything human or any other species wanting to mingle with him, but I do know he is a sad example of whatever origin he is from.

When I think of people who've overstayed their 15 minutes of fame it's Perez Hilton.

I pass on the 17-year old part...I think the bigger issues are:

(1)What George Clooney defined as the zone of privacy any citizen of America, including celebrities have a right to expect...and with that right against libel and defamation any person, including public figures like a singer, actor - has a right to expect - settled as a matter of law. (As of now, paparazzi and sleazemeisters like Hilton are out of control.)

2. Why the gay mafia of Hollywood elevates dirtballs like Peretz Hilton to superstar status. Instant entree into clubs, media deals, TV bookings, stints as beauty contest judges. Being "outrageous and out there" also applies to camera-hungry Mafia dons and politicians. Why in this case does an entire community rally behind a Peretz Hilton??

IMHO, the guy deserves a good beating.

"Someone needs to take him out back and beat the ever living crap out of him." I agree with that he is a monster. In 89 YEARS know one will care about him. HE BELONGS IN JAIL, HE CAN HAVE A BOYFREIND NAMED BUBBA.
