On Monday (Feb. 24), Gossip blogger Perez Hilton wrote a controversial tweet comparing black women to Hitler that has since landed him in hot water. “Inside every gay man is a fierce black woman!,” said an initial “compliment” from Hilton. Turns out the public took his efforts to flatter black women as offensive by calling the tweet “ignorant” and “dehumanizing.”
Shortly after the backlash, Hilton attempted to explain himself with little success. “Some present logical arguments, but then Hitler attempted to justify the holocaust too,” he tweeted and of course–deleted. Perhaps this tension will teach Perez to stay away from playing the race card.
