Online trolls have targeted celebrity blogger and openly-gay father of one, Perez Hilton after a feud with Lady Gaga storms Twitter.
After an interesting turn of events and various allegations of sorts, Perez Hilton owner and founder of one of the world’s most popular gossip sites, PerezHilton.com has started retweeted threats made against him and his son.
Angry Lady Gaga fans have taken to Twitter issuing death threats and using anti-gay language to berate the Hollywood blogger.
Hilton took to twitter in the early hours, tweeting:
‘I can’t sleep. I am literally sick to my stomach. Not playing any f**king games here. I am afraid for my f**king safety and that of my son.’
Lady Gaga took to twitter to accuse celebrity blogger Perez Hilton of stalking her, after a fan claimed that Hilton was at the singer’s apartment building in New York.
The singer promptly tweeted: “STAY AWAY FROM ME + MY FAMILY YOU ARE SICK TRYING TO RENT AN APARTMENT IN MY BUILDING TO STALK ME. LEAVE ME ALONE!!!”
The meat-wearing Mother of Monsters, then tweeted: “DO I NEED TO BE SHOT IT IN THE HEAD FOR PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND THAT HIM AND EVERYONE ELSE THAT HARASSES ME HAS GONE TOO FAR? IM A HUMAN BEING.”
The tweet has since been deleted.
Hilton responded to Gaga’s accusation by posted ‘A Statement On Lady GaGa’s Lies’ on his blog.
Read Hilton’s Statement below
“My heart hurts that my former very good friend Lady GaGa, a person I used to call my ‘wifey’ and traveled [sic] the world with, is making very public and very untrue allegations about me on Twitter. While it is still too painful for me to go into detail about why I chose to no longer make her a part of my life, I will say that I am a critic and not a stalker. Any allegation that I am stalking her is utterly false, defamatory and now appear to be putting me in danger. I will continue to be a critic — in a way that is not mean or involves name-calling, and I will continue to have an opinion and talk about music and songs, like GaGa’s ‘Applause.’ As the suggestion that I pose a danger to GaGa is preposterous, if fans want to send a message of support to her, they should buy her music.”
