Taking into consideration the recent sad events regarding teen suicides, the blogger wanted to be a different person, and revealed that he wants to change his attitude towards presenting events.
So, he went on Ellen and admitted being perceived by people in a negative light and how he wants to end this.
Although people warned Ellen not to talk to Perez, she explained how she believes in second chances and decided to let Perez make a promise to change.
He said: “Over the last two weeks, I have been doing everything I can to bring awareness to the issue of teen suicides and gay bullying. In doing so, a lot of people have called me a hypocrite and a bully myself and a big one. That’s not how I want to be perceived and that’s not what I want to put out there into the world. It was a big wake-up call that so many people saw me that way, so from now on I really want to be part of the solution and not part of the problem.”
Perez Hilton added on his speech: “I want to be the change that I want to see in others. I’m going to do things differently on my website than I have in the past. I’m not going to call people nasty nicknames. I’m not going to go the mean route. I’m going to force myself to try and be funnier or smarter or just do things different, not doodle inappropriate things, not out people, which I have done all of those things in the past.”
