Moms, put down your chardonnay or else it’s going to come shooting straight out of your nose: Snarky celebrity blogger Perez Hilton is penning his first children’s book. According to media reports (and remarkably, they’re not even coming from the satirically brilliant The Onion), The Boy with Pink Hair is Hilton’s attempt at “celebrating individuality and self-acceptance.” In other news: Flying pigs were just spotted ice skating in hell.
We get it, he's a gay man who's undoubtedly dealt with his share of bullying and prejudice, but this is also a guy who's made his career by blatant name-calling, penning obscene doodles and promoting unseemly photos of underage celebrities. And now he wants to teach our kids about tolerance? I think I’ll pass.
The sure-to-be-controversial tome will be published in September by Celebra Children's Books, in partnership with Penguin Young Readers Group, with an initial print run scheduled at 75,000 copies.
