N.O.R.E. to Perez: I Respect Gay People, But I Hate F—–s
It looks like celebrity blogger Perez Hilton can ad another name to the list of people who are not fond of him. In response to Hilton's stating that he wanted use the "n-word," rapper N.O.R.E. had more than a few choice words for the blogger.
"To be perfectly honest with you, I was appalled," N.O.R.E. said of Hilton admitting to wanting to use the slur, towards Black Eyed Peas front man Will.I.Am, during a confrontation last month. "I was real upset he could admit that. At the end of the day, we have a black president. We're moving on in this world. The fact is, we still deal with that regular racism that's going on.
"I respect gay people, I hate f-----s. This guy is a f-----. The difference is, a f----- is a person who hates everyone else who isn't gay. A gay person is a person who is just happy to be gay. So when he has the audacity to admit that he wants to use the n-word, it was just like the most disrespectful thing in the world. Even for him thinking like that [or] thinking to say that, he shouldn't have even admitted to that. At the end of the day man, this sh-- needs to be addressed."
This isn't the first time that N.O.R.E. has addressed Hilton. The two engaged in a "Twitter war" after Hilton called N.O.R.E. a "douchebag" for getting arrested, and pretended not to know who the rapper was. " Do you know who I am, b----," he wrote. "My Twitter is for str8 people who don't wear wigs."
Hilton has received a lot of public flack in the last few months. Besides claiming that Will attacked him and admitted to calling him a f-ggot, it was later revealed that Will's manager actually assaulted the blogger. Additionally, after news broke that pop icon Michael Jackson's had been rushed to the hospital, Hilton wrote on his blog that Jackson was faking a heart attack so that he could pull out of his 'This Is It Tour,' set to start July 13. The King of Pop was confirmed dead later that afternoon.
