Perez Hilton got assaulted, and now the video is out for all on the Net to see. The Perez Hilton assault video is just the latest online account of Perez Hilton and Will.I.Am’s feud. Right after Perez Hilton got assaulted in a battle with Will.I.Am’s posse, the barbs have been flying between them in online video. But this time, Internet users can see the video of Perez Hilton getting assaulted for themselves, and see how it matches up with their stories.
On Sunday, it got out that Perez Hilton was assaulted after a shouting match with singer Will.I.Am and his entourage. The assault was allegedly committed by Black Eyed Peas manager Polo Molina, who has been charged by police.
But after the assault, Perez Hilton had much more to say about Will.I.Am, calling him all kinds of names on videos for his website. Such name calling was how the fighting got kicked off in the first place, as the assault video shows.
The video of Perez Hilton’s assault shows that things got uglier after he called Will.I.Am a “f***ing f**got.” Since he is gay – as if no one forgot after the Carrie Prejean controversy – Hilton likely felt he was more free to say it.
Perez Hilton commented in one of his online video responses that he used the term because of the heat of the moment. Specifically, he said he couldn’t think rationally when “a thug disguised as a musician” was yelling at him.
After the assault video aired, GLAAD came down on Hilton for using the gay slur against Will.I.Am. However, it is Hilton that wants GLAAD to apologize to him, saying that they “victimized” him further.
As for Will.I.Am, he started a Twitter page and posted a video response just to shoot back at Hilton for his accusations and words. Now the Internet is consumed by Hilton and Will.I.Am’s various online antics.
It is fitting that Twitter has a small part in this feud, since Hilton used his Twitter page to get people to call the police after he was assaulted. In this digital age, concepts like 911 seem just a little bit old fashioned and useless.
Polo Molina, the alleged man who actually committed the assault, remains in the background of the story as Perez Hilton and Will.I.Am keep going at it. With the assault video out, and Hilton claiming to be victimized by both singers and gay-rights organizations, the video barbs may keep on flying for a while.
