Perez Hilton is not having a great week. He gets punched by the Black Eyed Peas tour manager, whines about it, is laughed at by, oh, just about everyone but Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, gets called out by GLAAD for calling Will.i.am a “f*ggot,” and is generally told to shut his pie hole by nearly the entire blogosphere. And then yesterday, when rumors began to swirl that Michael Jackson was hospitalized after experiencing cardiac arrest, he posted the photo above on his blog, with the following text:
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!!!!
Once it was revealed that Jackson was indeed sick — and then had died — Perez took the photo down and deleted all but the first three sentences, as if his “dubious” feelings had never existed. But the internet doesn’t forget!Of course, people noticed and they’re not letting Perez forget that he made light of the King of Pop’s dire circumstances — even Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson Wentz were giving Perez Twitter spankings last night. Wentz tweeted, “u can’t make ur life tearing someone apart, who is a human being, and then flip on a dime and say respect and mourn him.”
Seriously, Perez, take a few days off.
