S.O.B. story

Perez Hilton chokes up again following emotional exhibitionism: “It’s really overwhelming!”

The story so far: Perez Hilton wants fans to know he’s thankful for the support they lavished upon him in the minutes and hours following a video he posted to Instagram in which he forthrightly succumbs to a bout of weepies and bereft boo-hoos.

The blogger and reality TV casualty revealed in the tear-stained, self-directed clip that he was absolutely gutted after being unceremoniously fired from a “career changing” role.

Perez — who has been widely criticized for nakedly mean-spirited posts about celebs’ appearance, height, and personal foibles — sobbed that “there is a reason this happened, and I’m sorry.”

“I’m sorry again, I guess I have to say that again more often. I’m sorry.”


After posting the video of himself weeping to Instagram, the veritable cyber-Svengali further coaxed warm fuzzies from our brittle, bitter hearts by switching gears and turning to Twitter, where he thanked followers for all their “support.”

“It’s really overwhelming seeing all your support,” he writes, quite possibly weeping and seized by vapors. “Things are much better this week! THANK YOU!!”

Shortly after Old Man McGillicudy uprooted the rotted tree trunk in Grover’s Gulley, fans began feebly rising from the soft peat to offer Perez support and encouragement, with one eerily writing “redemption & forgiveness is on ur side.”

They call themselves #TeamPerez, which isn’t sad:

It’s hard to say how well his #TeamPerez hashtag is going, because there are literally hundreds of other #TeamPerez hashtags, like this guy:


Hilton refused to reveal what this mystery role was, seeing as he’s a consummate “professional,” so we may never know the truth.

He was also very worried for the children. How would he provide for the children? How would he feed the children?

“It will continue to be hard for me,” he wept.

“And I’m sorry to my kids, because I know that when they get older they are going to have to suffer because of who their dad is.”

Adding further mystery to what this mysterious job entailed, Hilton claims “everyone loved me,” but shadowy higher forces decided he needed to be axed.

Here’s the weepy clip he posted on Instagram, with the caption, “This is why I’ve been so sad. I’m sorry!”

    (Peter Griffin voice): Perez, who let you back in the house?

      That is ridiculous off. No way is he worth 30 million. I’d be shocked if he had 10,000 dollars to his name.

      He sold his site 10 years ago when big media companies we snatching up blogs in the hopes to help the transition from print media to online. They bought it in a “up to 15 million” deal. Like all the deals then, the the blogs had to hit certain threshold to get the full amount.

      Of course, all the hopes of future growth from micro blogs were wildly over estimated and practically no blog that was bought at the time met the requirements. Basically it was a bust across the board. Word was he got over 5 years between 800k to 1.5m. After taxes, lifestyle, kids. That’s gotta be mostly gone.

    Perez is disgusting human being. And a great liar too just to get views on Youtube. Pathetic.

    ABC made the right choice They may be hard up for judges for the new AI, but they do have some smarts.
