Vanderpump Rules star Jax Taylor made headlines earlier this month when he spouted off homophobic remarks on Twitter then claimed he can’t be antigay because he used to live in West Hollywood and 50 percent of his friends are homosexual.
Now, he’s back in the headlines, this time for instigating a Twitter feud with none other than gay blogger Perez Hilton.
It all started over the weekend when Taylor tweeted a screenshot of Hilton along with the caption, “All this dude does is make fun of peoples looks… Seriously.”

It didn’t take long for Hilton to respond. In an Instagram post, he wrote, “@MrJaxTaylor from Vanderpump Rules didn’t even have the balls to @ me! I haven’t talked sh*t about people’s physical appearance since 2010. I do have opinions, however, about sh*t people–like Jax.”
He continued: “The hypocrisy of attacking my looks for the same thing he falsely accused me of is lost on him. No one has ever accused Jax Taylor of being smart!”
Had Hilton left it at that, he would have come out on top in this totally stupid and irrelevant feud. But just as “no one has ever accused Jax Taylor of being smart,” no one has ever accused Hilton of taking the high road.
He choose to follow his initial response with second one, which made an unnecessary bi-phobic jab at Taylor.
Wrote Hilton: “He took the time to post about me on Instagram Story AND Twitter. Maybe the rumors of @MrJaxTaylor being bisexual are true! Sorry, boo. You can’t have a piece of me. I don’t want your STDS!”
In 2015, Taylor became the subject of bisexual rumors when a man claimed he had developed a close friendship with him in Miami, telling Radar Online, “With Jax, there is always a celebration of everyone: man or woman. He has a great sensitivity.” The rumors proved to be just that: rumors. But that didn’t stop Hilton from dredging them back up again nearly five years later.
Now, here’s what’s wrong with Hilton’s post: Aside from using bisexuality as a weapon against Taylor, implying that being bisexual is something someone should be criticized for or ashamed of, he also maintains the myth that bisexuals are promiscuous and have STDs.
As a member of the LGBTQ community, he should know the damage of perpetuating these sorts of attitudes.
This isn’t the first time Hilton has made ignorant remarks about sexuality either. Last month, for National Coming Out Day, he posted a video in which he jokingly “came out” as asexual, laughing about how he hadn’t had sex with anyone since February 2016. (Note: asexuality is a distinct sexual orientation and is not simply being abstinent, celibate, or unable to find a partner.)
For someone who claims to be “woke” about sexuality and a fighter for LGBTQ acceptance and equality, Hilton still has some waking up to do himself.

Jax always wants to talk his shit. He does not want to fade away from the lime light. He always has to scream “Hey I’m over here.” After all he has to make a living. He has a house and a wife to support.
After all he did marry her in order to stay in the spotlight again. It seemed the right thing. everyone was doing it and this girl was head over heels with the lime light too. Soon we will hear about the fall from grace. He is about to snap any day now. His is taking out his hostilities at other people. There is trouble brewing inside just like a volcano. Just wait, this man is not a happy man.
I’m confused how suggesting that Jax might be bi, thus laying the ground for why Jax might be obsessed with him, another male, = a bi-phobic jab. The only way ANYBODY could possibly interpret that aspect of Hilton’s words as demeaning is if they already have a low view of bisexuality. Perez never said “Ha ha Bisexuals are dumb”. He essentially said ‘”He might be bi, which might explain why he might be same sex attracted to me”. Or am I missing something?
Kinda like how you’re obsessed with me and what I gargle with!
I was about to post a similar comment. How is Hilton’s comment biphobic? Geez, enough with these phobias.
Go back to sleep.
This site (and many folks in general) frequently make the assumption that many aggressively homophobic/anti-gay men are actually into dudes or dealing with certain degrees of confusions. Hell, this site has posted a couple of articles supporting that perspective. Perez says something similar and it’s “bi-phobic”? I don’t like being put in a position to defend Perez Hilton. But for all the hateful and outrageous and flat-out cookoo things Perez has said this one is least worthy of an article. Graham is really starting to come off like one of those “queer” dudes that secretly resent “gays” and only cares about defending, supporting and cozying up to overall hetero-leaning guys or closet cases.
Not trying to be mean, however, I find Perez Hilton to be one of the most unattractive men I’ve ever seen.
“…laughing about how he hadn’t had sex with anyone since February 2016.”
Is anyone surprised??? Who’d want to get naked with this dude? Not me.
is anyone interested in anything that idiot does? forget finding someone to sleep with him does he even have one friend?
PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS
He must cry every day, once upon a time he was offered TEN MILLION DOLLARS for his website and turned it down claiming it was worth “way more”.
it was rumored to be $20M…. key word fool is “rumored”. so ignorant.
PH is one ugly mutherfu*cker…. bet PWWO is his sister
They are BOTH ugly motherfukr’s, both of them white trash, both horrible examples of gay or bi men, neither of them have any of my respect. I think it’s horrifying that Perez was given a child to raise, I guess they’ll just give one to anyone with money nowadays.
Perez Hilton’s star faded about the same time that Paris Hilton’s did.
Perez and Jax… not exactly a MENSA meeting
