ParisExposed Lawuits, Statements and Maybe Some Backlash

Paris has been Exposed for about two or so weeks now on the latest for-profit scandal website featuring her night-vision worthy activities, drugs, a variety of slurs and some really horrible rich-white-girl dancing. In fact, the site was used, abused, passed around the internet and then shut down via temporary court injunction (her lawsuit = she wants the materials off the web but she also wants part of the profits). I just had deja vu. Funny thing is - only the Paris-loathing gossip blogs picked up the story. In a world where Mel Gibson's drunken Jew-rant to a police officer made headline news as quick as the officer could write it up in a police report, Michael Richards made his first widespread appearance since Seinfeld via cell phone video camera after using the N word about 2931 times too many and last but not least, Isaiah Washington was plastered across the news for weeks and ended up in rehab for calling his gay costar a homo the F word -- where the hell is the mainstream Paris backlash? Paris' videos featured her using anti-sematic language, the n word, the f word, making fun of poor people, making fun of people from the ghetto, making fun of people in public school (even though she dropped out of her private school) basically insulting everyone else in the entire world except herself and her sister.Well hopefully this is the beginning of the end of Paris. CNN featured their first video/commentary (#1 video download) on Paris and her slurs and now GLADD President Neil G. Giuliano has issued a statement: “These are not frivolous words, and to use them as if they are gives tacit sanction to the racism and homophobia they engender. Hilton has an obligation to go on the record, explain herself, and publicly apologise to the LGBT and African American communities and all those offended by these slurs.”

...and it wouldn't be a xine post about Paris Hilton without featuring my favorite character, her diaper changer and publicist, Elliot Mintz. For once, Elliot exits his constant state of denial and says: I’m not going to make any attempt to spin this. It happened. I’m not going to deny it happened.." of course he couldn't stop there. That would just be too much for one day. He had to try to justify her actions by finishing his statement with: "Each of us has used words we have regretted later. This was six years ago. She was 20 at the time. It was New Year’s Eve. She had been obviously drinking. She sincerely regrets using those words. She is not a racist or an anti-Semite." So Elliot, you're basically telling me that she sounds like a racist anti-semite when she's drinking and she's sorry that people heard her? Here's an old adage that I believe came from a man on the side of the Pacific Coast Highway last one night: once a drunken anti-semite always a drunken anti-semite.
