Pop Attention Span

Trying to keep up with the zeitgeist

Surprise

When I heard Radar collected a list of the ten most hated people on the internet (cutely titled “The Internet is for Scorn”), I was sure Perez Hilton would make the list. I mean, if crudely drawing phalli on photos in Microsoft Paint and outing celebrities who don’t hire them to promote their albums weren’t enough, his behavior went far in justifying the “racist gays just were looking for an excuse to take down Isaiah Washington because he’s black” defenses.

Then again, maybe the Radar editors knew Hilton would probably enjoy hearing his name, no matter what the context.
