The Black Eyed Perez

They’re my new favorite band

TORONTO (AP) – Police have charged the tour manager of the Black Eyed Peas with assault after he allegedly gave celebrity blogger Perez Hilton a black eye outside a Toronto nightclub.
Hilton said he got into an argument with band members Fergie and at the Cobra nightclub early Monday morning and was punched outside by Polo Molina, the band’s tour manager. They were at the club following a Sunday night video awards show.
… Hilton, who is openly gay, said in interview with The Associated Press that he called 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.'”

Hilton should be charged with a hate crime for using such language.
Or punched.

    Perez Hilton is totally full of WTF? and not the good kind, either.
    What really gets me is that he will apparently do stuff to people that, if it were done to him, he’d probably have his lawyer on the phone to them over.

    I saw a post (HA or Ace, I think) that included Perez twittering to his fans to call the police for him. Heh.

    Hilton deserves to have his other eye blackened just for his hair “style”.

    Two words: Jury Nullification.
    The victim had it coming.

    Bill, you don’t even need outright nullification. What you’re arguing is the affirmative defense of provocation: that the victim provoked the defendant sufficient to elicit a violent response from a reasonable person of ordinary temperament.

    I’d like to buy Polo a beer.

    Perez Hilton, neo-barbarian.

  10. Dave E. says:

    Beer AND a bump I think, Jim. I’ll cover the bump.

    Hard to think of anyone, offhand, who deserves a punch in the eye more. Ace had another point, though: what kind of chickenshit (paraphrasing) when insulted won’t sully himself but has his manager dole out the thumping? So this episode hasn’t made me a convert to the Black Eyed Peas.
