MICHELLE VISAGE: Perez Cut Me With Representation Comment

Following her confrontation with Perez Hilton yesterday Michelle Visage has spoken about how Perez Hilton ‘wounded’ her.

Speaking to to Big Brother in the diary room, Michelle Visage tells Big Brother that Perez “said something to me last night to hurt me personally, to cut me…he was just trying to be mean and he wouldn’t own it. That was a mean thing to say to me because, and I’ll explain, he had nothing to gain from saying that. The only thing he could gain from that was wounding me. Of course, I’m not going to allow it to…” She goes on to talk about the work she does and maintains that she is part of the community adding, “Don’t fuc*ing tell me I’m not because I’m not a gay woman! That’s bullsh*t. He meant to hurt me. That’s really what it comes down to. That’s not a good person.”

Yesterday In a heated exchange between Perez and the entire house, he slams Michelle telling her that she does not represent him.

During Big Brother’s Bit On Side, journalist and Buzzfeed LGBT editor Patrick Strudwick said that Perez was a stain on the gay community after drawing a parallel between his ostracisation from the group and being “diagnosed with AIDS in the early 80s”
