Perez Puncher -- The Pen Is Mightier...

11/18/2009 3:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The Black Eyed Peas manager accused of punching Perez Hilton in the head back in June will not face criminal charges -- thanks, in part, to a half-ass apology letter he wrote to the emotional blogger.

Perez Hilton

Hilton had agreed to drop the assault charge against Liborio Molina in exchange for an apology ... and a few other minor stipulations. Molina obliged -- but in his apology, Molina accused Perez of inciting the incident that fateful night in Toronto when Perez dropped a homophobic f-bomb on Will.i.am.

Here's the letter: 'I apologize for what I did on June 22 of 2009, even though you engaged in highly offensive comments, including a homophobic slur to my clients, I acknowledge that these kinds of issues should not be resolved through a physical response."

Per their deal, Molina has also agreed to avoid contact with Perez, not carry a weapon for one year and must donate $476 to a family shelter.

Hilton has also filed a civil suit against Molina seeking more than $25,000 in damages -- that case is still pending.

Perez should just consider himself lucky that he still has traffic on his crappy website. After spewing anti-gay slurs, he should be a pariah. He should have known better, and he should be the one apologizing daily to the gay community for being such a jackass, not to mention a fat ugly dweeb.

This comments section needs to be fixed.

I keep losing my posts. They just disappear and aren't posted after I click. :-(

$476 for the opportunity to punch Perez/Mario Hilton/Lavandeira in the grill? Wow - that would be the best gift money could buy. For that price, I'd punch his misogynist, bitter, sarcastic, vicious, homophobic, quasi-illiterate ass repeatedly. And the world would cheer and become a better place.

My advice to Perez-Carry a can of mace so that if there is a next time, you can defend yourself. I was almost mugged the other day and the mace saved my ass.

This resolution was the Crown Prosecutor's way of saying "we think Perez Hilton is an idiot too and believe he deserved to be punched" so how do we dispense with this foolish charge in the simplest way possible. And by the way, Hilton didn't "drop the charge" - we don't do it that way in Canada. The Crown agreed to drop the charges, likely in response to an acceptable proposal from Molina's counsel. Mario didn't get a vote.

I HATE this man with a passion. Does anyone even surf his ridiculous site anymore?? I think he lost a lot of fans after his mocking of Michael Jackson's death. Lets not forget:

Heart Attack or Cold Feet???

We knew something like this would happen!!
Michael Jackson was taken by ambulance from his Holmby Hills home to a nearby Los Angeles hospital on Thursday afternoon!!
Supposedly, the singer went into cardiac arrest and the paramedics had to administer CPR!!!
His mother is even on the way to visit him!!!
We are dubious!!
Jacko pulled a similar stunt when he was getting ready for his big HBO special in ‘95 when he “collapsed” at rehearsal!
He was dragging his heels on that just like his upcoming 50 date London residency at the 02 Arena, of which he already postponed the first few dates!!!
Either he’s lying or making himself sick, but we’re curious to see if he’s able to go on!!!
Get your money back, ticket holders!!!!!!
- Perez Hilton


From The Matthew Shepard Foundation-
The Matthew Shepard Foundation was surprised to learn this morning via media reports that blogger Perez Hilton has announced plans to donate, to our organization, the proceeds of a lawsuit.
We had no advance notice or contact from Mr. Hilton or his representatives regarding this proposal, nor any communication since he posted this plan to his website.
We do not know the details of the lawsuit, whether it has been filed, the nature of his claims or the likely outcome. But because the lawsuit presumably involves the physical attack prompted by Mr. Hilton's admitted use of an anti-gay slur, the Foundation will be unable to accept any funds obtained in such a manner....we also feel compelled to point out that use of epithets can often
lead to physical violence, as it appears it may have in this case, and that the Matthew Shepard Foundation has worked for more than 10 years to bring to people's attention the consequences of hateful or intolerant language.

Even the gays don't want to be associated with this joke. Hang it up Perez, your days are over.

I think there should be a law across the whole country and possibly that world tha allows people to beat the crap out of this idiot without fear of charges.

Perez Hilton's traffic is down (page views down 15.6% in past 3 mos) but what the stats don't tell is that the majority of his "readership" is now comprised of people who despise his very existence and visit his site for the sole purpose of trashing his behavior in the comment sections of his postings. They don't pay attention to ads from his few remaining z-list advertisers and they certainly don't spend money with them. So it's only a matter of time before the failure of yet another venture by the "man" who 2 years ago breathlessly announced the death of the still-alive-to-this-day Fidel Castro (among his many blunders.)

Boom boom pow.

#28 Zach Swan. Seriously? How about his stats from the past 6 months? I'm surprised it's only down 15.6%. I would have thought it was a lot more than that. Baby steps. Thanks for the info. I appreciate it. =) Here's hoping he'll slither back in his hole none too soon.

TMZ it's strange that you would do a story on this non-celebrity guy when yesterday you didn't mention Evan Chandler's death on the grounds that he wasn't a celebrity.

Mario is the most mean-spirited, hate-filled person on the planet. To write what he writes about people is disgusting. He's not a star, he's the dung on my shoe.
