After the latest string of teen suicides prompted by cruel and hurtful bullying, fellow gossip blogger Perez Hilton has decided it’s time to make some pretty big changes.
In a recent video on his site, Perez admits to bullying celebrities throughout the years and, although he claims it’s always been in jest, has vowed to never again play the role of bully.
“I need to…do a bigger part,” says Hilton. “I need to be the change that I want to see. I need to be the solution and not part of the problem.”
“That time is now. I’m ready to grow. And I hope you will grow with me. I hope that I can do good in this world — more than just entertain. I really want to inpsire people and make the world a better place — I really do. And I hope I can do that. I’m gonna work really hard to do that.”
We totally applaud Hilton for his decision and look forward to seeing how the site grows and changes. Be true to you, kid. We got your back!
