Perez Hilton, celebrity gossip blogger, addressed Kylie Jenner’s reported pregnancy in a video on Friday night after news broke that the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star is carrying her first child, and said that she should have gotten an abortion.
What did he say?
Hilton — real name Mario Lavandeira — began his video by literally applauding Jenner’s public antics, lauding her as the “new Kim Kardashian.”
“She is the new Kim Kardashian,” Hilton gushed. “I don’t care about any of them other b*****s right now, Kylie Jenner has just one-upped everybody.”
The praise turned sour, however, when the blogger said that though he “loves life” and “loves babies,” if he were Kylie’s mother, Kris Jenner, he would “tell that girl to get an abortion.”
Later in the video he broached the topic of abortion again, and said that Kris “probably didn’t even say anything to Kylie about an abortion,” not because it’s morally wrong, but because Kris just doesn’t care what her grown-up children do anymore.
“She should have had an abortion, right?” Perez asked again, appearing to be very distressed over Kylie’s apparent decision to go through with the pregnancy.
He later added, “This is when being pro-choice really comes in handy.”
What are his reasons for pushing abortion?
After taking several moments to recompose himself, Hilton issued a variety of statements about Kylie and her ability to care for a child at just 20 years old, including her five-month relationship with rapper Travis Scott, who TMZ believes to be the father of Kylie’s child.
“Let’s be really real, here, people,” he continued after composing himself. “Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott are not gonna last. They’re not gonna end up happily ever after. They’re having a baby and they barely know each other.”
He countered his comments with “it’s great for business.”
Hilton added that he doesn’t feel that 20-year-old Kylie will be a good mom as a result of her lifestyle and her age.
“Kids need more than just a paid babysitter. They need guidance, they need discipline,” Perez proselytized, addressing the idea that Kylie would likely have “12 nannies.”
Hilton added that his “heart goes out to that poor, unborn child,” but doubled down on his previous comments that her pregnancy is “great for business.”
“I f**king love this,” he concluded.
This writer’s perspective
If Hilton is as pro-choice as he says, why is he telling — or even suggesting to — a woman what she should and should not do with her body?
Does that not violate the “creed” of being pro-choice?
Hilton has two children of his own: 4-year-old Mario Armando Lavandeira III, and 2-year-old Mia Alma Lavandeira, both of which were born by a surrogate mother.
