According to TVGuide, Celebrity Blogger Perez Hilton appeared on The Joy Behar Show and admitted he would post the picture again if he could.
Said Hilton, “I really do wish I could post that picture [on my website] because a lot of people … are getting upset over an image they didn’t see. It’s definitely not child pornography and it’s definitely not illegal.”
Hilton has claimed that the picture in question, which allegedly exposes Miley Cyrus as she exits a vehicle, did in fact not reveal anything.
“You didn’t see anything down there,” Hilton argued. “I can’t help it if America has a dirty imagination.”
I think any way you put it, this was a very, very poor choice on Hilton’s part. I do understand that Miley is taking a somewhat more grown up approach to her image now, and probably should be aware of how she leaves a car, however she is still only 17. That should have sent alarms out that posting the pic, even with underwear, was not a good idea.
What do you think of Hilton’s comments?
