Perez Hilton issues exclusive statement about ABC's pulled ad
Image Credit: Chris Hatcher/PR PhotosAs one would expect, Perez Hilton is not going down without a fight. After news broke last night that ABC had pulled advertising for The View from PerezHilton.com after Hilton (né Mario Lavandeira) tweeted a scandalous photo of 17-year-old Miley Cyrus, the celebrity blogger issued an exclusive statement to EW:
“I find it odd that an advertiser would choose to pull an ad off my site because the photo in question, which was not pornographic and showed a fully clothed Miley Cyrus, was not posted on my website or even linked from my site. I look forward to addressing this and all of the inaccuracies about me being perpetuated when I appear on Joy Behar’s HLN show this evening.”
Will you tune in, PopWatchers?
