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."

Hmm.. a quick little jab in the face will give you a black eye for a few days but it won't kill someone.. calling some a f***** can lead a person to commit suicide. It's called mental abuse, which is A LOT more difficult to heal than a black eye. Hence why so many gay teens, kids, etc. end up killing themselves from being teased and taunted by the word which Perez used to attack someone else. And by using it in the way he did, he reinforces the negative through which it mentally taunts gay boys, girls, men and women. I understand people make mistakes and say hurtful things sometimes when they're in the heat of the moment, but you should still apologize to GLAAD and drop the lame ass lawsuit for something you were just as guilty of. Donate money to the Matthew Sheppard foundation from your own pocket considering you make over 300 grand a month with your website. And you should be donating a lot more than 25 grand. It won't redeem ya, but it's a half decent start. Next time, think before you spew out hateful words. Violence is never the answer, but mental abuse through 'name calling' can cause just as bad if not worse damage to a persons self-worth. Only that kinda pain lasts a lot longer than a little jab in the face.

People, people.....stop wasting time posting here - please write to all the advertisers on Perez's site expressing your feelings and convince them to stop advertising on his site. Perez is a cyber-bulling, self-hating homophobe who needs to be boycotted ASAP! His 15 minutes are up and he needs to fall down so hard that even his fat ass cannot soften the blow.

Come on everybody, let's put the final nail in his coffin! If you are as disgusted with perez as I am, contact the Teen Coice Awards, Bravo, HBO, Showtime, ACF Family Channel, Hot Topic,GLAAD,and anyone else you know he deals with and let them know if they continue to do business with him you will not buy, view, or share their products.
I have children ages teenaged to two. We spend a lot of money on things. I know there are many mothers just like me who are sick of perez and his degenerate site. I enjoy reading celebrity gossip, but if I wanted to see anal sex I'd go look at porn.To think how many children visit his site and have been violated in a way that can never be erased sickens me to no end. It's just soo sad. Help us stop him, people. He is the epitome of what is wrong with our nation. He has no conscience, he's devoid.

BOYCOTT PEREZ TODAY!!!

Bet he sees that few people go to his website any longer, so he decided to apologize.
Too little too late, douchebag.

Perez reminds me of Rosie O'Donell who is very angry about her sexuality. Perez you keep shooting your mouth off. It's fun to watch you cause you're own demise.

Love it. Perez keeps getting the smack down he deserves.

This is fun to watch perez have a mental breakdown, for all the terrible things he has written about people over time. Nobody should feel sorry for him.

NICK!! You definately need to DROP PH from the TCA. He's not worth it, do not waste your money on some one who is a hypocrite. PH needs to go away and never comeback.

"im going to give any money i get to charity"... egad, whatta crybaby
