Perez Hilton Starts Social Media Feud With Ariana Grande
Celeb blogger Perez Hilton is no stranger to feuds, his most recent public battle being with Lady Gaga. Now, he has taken aim at Ariana Grande, but it’s not exactly because of the petite-but-big-voiced singer herself. Her fans, aka Arianators, were mad at Hilton’s criticisms of her Grammy attire and the scrum snowballed from there.
P. Hilt called Grande’s floral dress “boring” and Arianators defended their heroine, with some taking it a bit too far by insulting Hilton’s son, but he was having none of that. He now wants Grande herself to set her fans straight and scold them for bringing his son into the verbal and digital melee.
Hilton posted a photo of Grande on Instagram and shared the following caption:
I know most @ArianaGrande fans are 12 years old – at least they almost all act like it – but ENOUGH is enough! Even 12 year olds KNOW better than to wish death on a baby and say the disgusting things that 99% of her fans have been spamming my Instagram with. I am NOT sorry I said #ArianaGrandewas dressed awfully with boring hair at the Grammy Awards. I will not apologize. And, listen up, kids! For every day you continue to say vile things on my photos, I will continue to bring it to the attention of Ariana. Do YOU want her seeing all those tweets pointing to the fact that she has the worst fandom out there? She does. It’s the truth. And, at this point, her silence on this matter is shameful. Her team KNOWS what her fans are saying about my family and doing to my Instagram photos. Ariana keeping quiet is condoning and promoting that behavior! Shameful, Ariana. Shameful! Quite being such an enabler and SAY SOMETHING! Until then, I guess I will be a baby myself and do what I think I need to do to get this bulls–t to stop. All this silliness started over me saying I did not like her look! I had always supported and liked Ariana. Until now! Over her! And over her fans!”
He is hoping to goad Grande into responding, it seems. It is not right, good or cool for innocent children to be dragged into this mess. But we wonder if Hilton is going too far by beating up Grande in the digital space until he gets a response.
Why not just reach out to, you know, her publicists and smooth this over in private as opposed to in public fashion? Maybe?
