Due to a recent increase in suicides by people who have been bullied for being gay, different or having their personal lives exposed over the internet. The media has started to shed more light on a huge problem that has been going on for years.
Popular but controversial blogger, Perez Hilton has just been exposed by Khloe Kardashian as being her personal tormentor.
Perez asked Khloe and other celebrities to make "It Gets Better" videos to help people who have been bullied.
Khloe took the opportunity to turn the tables on Perez for the years he has made her life hell. She let the world know just how much he has hurt her personally with name calling.
"For me, Perez has been my personal bully," Khloe says. "I've been bullied basically my entire life. I've been compared to my sisters since the day I was born. I don't look exactly like them, I'm different from them, I'm bigger than them, but I'm me," she continued. "I've always struggled with my height, with my weight, with my skin color. Everybody has something to say. And Perez is a major factor in my adult life. As an adult I thought that bullying would be done, but in my world it's not done because I live in a world where there's magazines and blogs and people feel like they're allowed to criticize me in the meanest way. Perez has given me the nickname of the transvestite, as the tranny. Writing fugly on my face [pics], things that are very hurtful to me. Then it also lets his followers think 'oh that's my name now' and they can call me that and they can attack me. Perez definitely has made my self esteem lower. at times. He's definitely made me feel insecure about things, and made me not even want to go out. Because I knew the next day, if I took one bad picture he would have something written about me on his website that definitely hurts my feelings
Perez is always quick to scream and cry foul when he feels he's been wronged, but then he turns around and treats people like dirt publicly.
Khloe hasn't been the only one he's picked on. Singer Lily Allen has also been one of his favorite targets, as well as Miley Cyrus. Perez was the one who posted the pic of 17-year old Miley getting out of a car when it looked like she wasn't wearing underwear.
He's made a promise to stop bullying people, and the "It Gets Better" campaign is a good start. Now let's see if he keeps his word or continues to be a hypocritical e-thug.
