Perez -- So Sorry for Gay Slur

6/25/2009 10:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Perez HiltonPerez Hilton is apologizing for the gay slur he threw at Will.I.Am on Sunday night in Toronto -- with an asterisk.

GLAAD had asked the battered blogger for an "I'm sorry" a few days back -- but Hilton makes it perfectly clear that GLAAD can pound sand.

Here's the mea culpa for calling Will.I.Am a "fa**ot."

"I am apologizing to the gay community, to anyone who was hurt by my choice of words," adding "the 'F' word will never be uttered from my lips again."

Perez also says, "I have reached out to Isaiah Washington, someone I incorrectly labeled a homophobe, despite his own public statements that he was not."

To me, it's not an apology if it is demanded of you.

Please explain yourself LALA. They are both hurtful words. Both words should be banned from the human language. But african american people call each other and other people that word every day every moment? I am offended by the N word. Very offended! But are these rappers going to publicly apologize to all the people who dont like that word? Its a double standard that we people have come to accept. Im just making that point. Some people are such hypocrites. So, you approve of the use of the N word? Shame on you LALA.

I wrote this on his blog on will write it here. This is NOT sincere, the boycott of perez hiltion’s website sponsors has been working. People have been removing his ads and are continuing to do so. He’s not an idiot he knows that, that 25,000 he’ll win in his case in no were near the money he gets for EVERY ad on his website, which is more than 45,000. Please everyone continue the boycott of perez Hiltons sponsors. Contact them my email or phone.

BOYCOTT all the advertisers at his site. It is time to bring his hatred toward straight people down. He is a bigot, calling Will.i.am a "thug" is racist. All he does is criticize and take bribes. He is a horrible specimen. BOYCOTT and get rid this filthy stain once and for all.

If Harvie wasn't such a closet case himself he'd be ripping Perez a new one instead of his untraditional...merely reporting.

People need to figure out that if you think a word is offensive, don't use it yourself. Plain and simple. A slur is a slur, it doesn't matter who says it. Like the "Latina" woman on here last week who called Will I AM a "crazy black man" and said "I can say that because I'm Latina. Uh, no you can't. It just makes you mean-spirited and hateful.
