I absolutely 100% cannot stand blobber/blogger Perez Hilton (real name: Mario Lavendeira). I admit I used to visit his site regularly for the celeb gossip, but he has gotten out of control. I'm just tired of his antics. Maybe I've matured, but the whole drawing penises and cocaine dots on people's faces and labelling celebs as either FAT or GAY has gotten old.
It's funny that he picks on celebs for being fat, especially some who would be considered anorexic in the real word. He (or should I say she) himself is a very large man, who's trying so hard to lose weight (and there's a lot to lose there). He reports he's lost a little bit of that weight recently. So why does he take so much glee in labelling people FAT? Aside from that, I realized another thing. He's a hack!! He basically steals all his stories from other infotainment websites and then just cuts and pastes him them onto his own site as "Exclusives" or "Breaking News". Seriously, a story will hit TMZ and within hours it'll show up on his site. Okay, so most stories are often repeated, especially the big stories. So how do I know he copies stuff? Because TMZ will post some obscure item about a forgotten Z-list star from years ago that no other media outlet would be interested in reporting. But sure enough, Perez will post it as "his" story filed under "Old People" within hours AFTER TMZ had already reported it. No wonder he's getting sued left and right for copyright violations.
Not only that, everything about him is fake and stolen, too. He calls himself Perez Hilton, but he basically stole the name of real celeb Paris Hilton. His real name is Mario Lavendiera. He's crowned himself, the "Queen of All Media", but he stole that from Howard Stern, who proclaimed himself, the "King of All Media." Funny thing is when Howard named himself that he had a TV show, popular radio show, best selling book and hit movie. What does Mario have? Plus, I'm pretty sure that he or his "staff" make up the bulk of his positive comments to make it look like he's getting a lot of hits per day.
But poor Perez can dish it out, but he can't take it. He not only DELETES posts that offend him, but he even BLOCKS ISP's (the identifying code for your computer that makes it traceable). He posted a link to an article about his website from the Huffington Post about how Perez is having a negative effect on John McCain's campaign because over 700 posts responded to his "Quote of the Day" post about John McCain's remarks against gay adoption. The Post said the overwhelmingly majority of posts were in Perez's favor, but they failed to mention how he deletes posts that go against him and blocks their ISPs. It's true, I wrote some remarks on his site defending celebs he picked on and my ISP was blocked, so I can't post anymore from my computer.
Oh, and for the record, he sets a bad examples for the gay community, too. In addition to "outing" celebs, some who may not even be gay he constantly drools over the teeny bopper group, the Jonas Brothers. For the record, Perez is 30; Nick Jonas is 15. He's twice his age!! Yet he rips on T.R. Knight for having a younger boyfriend? Plus, he reinforces every negative stereotype in his online videos (the squeeling, his effeminate manner, etc.)
Anyway, I can't stand him and will no longer be visiting his site.
