Perez Hilton - A Lesson in Consequences

Perez Hilton, a man who has made himself famous by being ugly and mean spirited about other people, finally got punched in his face for some of the ugliness he spouts. The poor baby. I have no sympathy what so ever. Our actions have consequences and Perez just felt those physically.

Perez Hilton, on the street, called Will.I.Am of the Black Eyed Peas a faggot on the street. The manager punched him in the face. And Mr Hilton is so traumatized by this whole thing that he's now whining on the web. He appears to believe that he can do whatever he wants, be as ugly as he wants, and suffer no consequences for it. But there are always consequences for our actions. Mr Hilton spouted the ugliness that he has become so famous for, and the manager of the target opted to speak back with his fists. Do I support violence in these situations? No. But I find it absurd that Mr Hilton is whining about his treatment after the way he has treated so many others. Even his whining is hateful and filled with profanity.

There is the old saying of "sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me", but there's also the saying that the pen is mightier than the sword. Words matter. What you say can do real harm to people. And yet Mr Hilton prides himself on the hatefulness he can direct towards others. Miss California anyone? I find it laughable that he is now so upset over the consequences he was dealt for his own actions.

There are consequences for everything we do and everything we say. And Mr Hilton is not enjoying the illustration of a lesson he should have learned long ago.
