Perez Hilton says he’s overwhelmed by the reaction after revealing he was fired
Perez Hilton has thanked fans after revealing he was fired from his dream job.
The blogger and reality TV personality broke down on camera after telling followers that he had been axed from the “career changing” role.
Perez has been heavily criticised in the past for ‘bullying’ celebs with mean comments about their appearance and weight.
In an emotional video, Perez declares: “There is a reason this happened, and I’m sorry.
“I’m sorry again, I guess I have to say that again more often. I’m sorry.”
Taking to Twitter after the video of his breakdown emerged, the celeb blogger thanks followers for their “support”.
He wrote: “It’s really overwhelming seeing all your support! Things are much better this week! THANK YOU!!”

Fans replied with supportive comments – writing that “redemption & forgiveness is on ur side” and calling themselves #TeamPerez.
Hilton refused to divulge what the role was, however – claiming he is too “professional” to share the details.
Wiping tears from his face, the blogger, who has been accused of bullying on his celeb website, says he fears his past actions have damaged his children’s futures.
“It will continue to be hard for me,” he says.

“And I’m sorry to my kids, because I know that when they get older they are going to have to suffer because of who their dad is.”
He also claims “everyone loved me” on the job he was fired from, but that it was due to higher forces that he was axed.
Posting a clip from the breakdown to Instagram, he wrote: “This is why I’ve been so sad. I’m sorry!”
