So, I was casting half an eye over Twitter last night while feeding the girls, and a series of strange tweets come through from Perez Hilton. One reads "I was assaulted by Will.I.Am of the Black Eyed Peas and his security guards. I am bleeding. Please, I need to file a police report. No joke."
'Is he kidding?' I think. 'Surely it would be better to call 911 than hope the police have a Twitter Response Unit...' Subsequent tweets reveal Perez had indeed been bashed by one of the band's entourage, had called police, and turned to twitter when help did not arrive. You can watch his (incredibly long) statement by clicking on the image above.
I agree with Perez that violence is never ok but, really, isn't he being incredibly naive? He spews forth vitriol on a daily basis...he personally attacks celebrities without giving it another thought...I'm personally surprised this is the first time it's happened in five years.
No, it's not ok to hit someone...but I also think it's wrong to bully someone emotionally. Rumer Willis, Jennifer Anison, Kirsten Dunst, and the many other women in the long list that Perez seems to have a personal vendetta against may not bear black eyes, but I'll bet anything they carry scars from his scathing posts. Does the mere fact that Perez was attacked with a fist - and not words - somehow make this more serious?
