US blogger Perez Hilton has come under fire for a shocking YouTube video in which he suggests that newly pregnant Kylie Jener should get an abortion.
In the clip, uploaded yesterday, Perez – who runs and owns the popular celebrity gossip site PerezHilton.com – starts by saying:
“Ring the alarm! Ring the alarm! Oh, my God. I needed to get on here instantly to let you know directly from me that Kylie Jenner is 99 percent pregnant. I say that because TMZ is reporting that Kylie is pregnant and of course, there is the possibility that they are wrong, but however, I would say their track record is usually pretty accurate.”
The 39-year-old then continues: “I’ve just got to do a slow clap, a slow clap for Kylie Jenner. She knows how to work it. She is the new Kim Kardashian. I don’t care about any of them other bitches right now, Kylie Jenner has just one-upped everybody. In case you haven’t been paying attention, Kylie Jenner has been dating rapper Travis Scott for what, um, 5 months, 6 months? And also, a reminder Kylie Jenner is 19 years old. Um, I love life, I love babies. If I were Kris Jenner, I would tell that girl to get an abortion!”
It was reported by multiple news outlets yesterday the 20-year-old Jenner is four months pregnant with her first child with new boyfriend Travis Scott.
“Let’s be really real here people. Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott are not going to last. They’re not going to end up happily ever after. They’re having a baby and they barely know each other! But you know what? It’s great for business,” Hilton continued. “Haha take that Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna!”
“Babies taking care of babies. You know, the Kardashian show is about to end so Kylie just wants to get a role on Teen Mom. This is when being pro-choice really comes in handy. I just don’t understand the thinking,” he added. “It’s just sad, because, I don’t want to project too much upon Kylie Jenner, but based on everything I know, I personally don’t think at 19 and given who she is, where she is at in her life, she’s going to be a great mom.”
Fans took to social media in their droves to slam Perez.
One Twitter user wrote: “Perez Hilton’s latest video which I refuse to watch (all I had to do was read the headline to know) is beyond disgusting.” Another asked, “Why you telling a woman what to do with her body?”
“It’s not your place to tell women to get an abortion,” another woman tweeted. “So a woman needs a stable relationship with a man to raise a child??” wrote another, “How sexist. Women can do freaking anything.”
Perez is a single father to Mario, 4, and Mia, 2, who were both delivered via surrogates.
The controversial figure hit back at haters a few hours later tweeting, “I know I’m the best father dad! If my daughter was as unready & young as Kylie, I’d tell her to get an abortion too!”
