Joy Behar interviewed Perez Hilton today, and for the first time, he was able to speak out about the Miley upskirt photo controversy. Perez claimed that the photo in question did not contain anything questionable.
He said, “I feel like if everyone saw this image in question, they would clearly see that you’re not seeing anything down there that you’re not supposed to. It’s definitely not child pornography and it’s definitely not illegal.”
We spoke to an anonymous source who said that they’ve seen the uncensored version of the photo that Perez Hilton tweeted of Miley Cyrus on Sunday night. This person said, “He’s lying. One hundred percent! The photo he displayed for his followers definitely contained something that could be construed as pornographic.”
AGAIN. He’s LYING. The photo was clearly manipulated (original – censored HERE) to show something ILLEGAL. And why isn’t anyone doing anything about this? Is it because this is what he does for a living?!??
How is that any excuse for this type of behavior? Especially for a 17-year-old girl, he acts like it was her fault or something. Where is Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus in this equation? I would’ve thought they might want to comment on this?
After the jump for the video and a letter to the photo agency in question!
Video of Perez trying to dig himself out of the hole he created:
Here’s a letter that we have sent to Splash News, the original agency who reportedly has the photo in question.
In light of all of the drama surrounding the Miley Cyrus photo that Perez Hilton published on his Twitter account, we were wondering a few things, if you could tell us.
1. Is the photo still retained on your servers?
The reason I’m asking is because if it’s not, then there must’ve been a problem with the original. Perez said in an interview tonight that he would republish said photo if he had rights to it. In the censored photo that I’ve seen, it would appear that it had been altered because her legs appear to be going in a different direction than the rest of her body.
2. Also, Perez said that he does not have a deal with Splash. If you have retained the photo, how much would it be to purchase it for use on the internet? It would either prove or disprove what he’s saying.
Please let me know if you can shed some light on any of this for us.
